One Room Challenge

Spring 2021 One Room Challenge X Emtek Highlights

Another exhilarating season of the One Room Challenge has officially ended and you all already know the spring 2021 participants did not disappoint! After following along for the 8-week challenge and seeing everyone’s amazing reveals, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites (featuring Emtek hardware, of course) to highlight:

Jeweled Interiors

First up, we have Jewel Marlowe of Jeweled Interiors who tackled her laundry room for the challenge. Who said a small laundry room couldn’t be glam? As Jewel likes to say, “The smaller the space, the more bold the design.” And so the maximalist laundry room of her dreams was born!

Jewel’s laundry room features Emtek’s Cabinet Crystal T-Knobs and Hanover Key-in Lever with Rectangular Rosette all in Flat Black.

Dressing Room Interiors Studio

Next we have Ariene Bethea of Dressing Room Interiors Studio who transformed her maple kitchen into a stunning black kitchen masterpiece. This incredible space is topped off with Emtek cabinet hardware.

In Ariene’s words: “Hardware is an integral part of a room’s design theme and I love the versatile design of the Brandt Knob by Emtek in Satin Brass. This knob is the perfect bridge between the traditional elements of my cabinetry and the sleekness of painting them black. I paired the Brandt Knob with the clean transitional elements of the Jasper Pull in Satin Brass to complete this look.”

Edgy but classy! We love Ariene’s design choices here and greatly admire the way our knobs and pulls shine in this space.

Lord Design

Sachi Lord of Lord Design decided to incorporate one of our newer items, the SELECT Knurled Knob, which is exciting to see in action! She tackled her bathroom as part of her renovation and the result is stunning.

Providing insight into her creative thought process, Sachi wrote, “With all the newness in the space I wanted something that added an aged, classic feel. We used the Emtek Conical Knurled Knob in Unlacquered Brass for our utility door and our laundry doors… For the doors to the bedrooms and bathroom, we used a matching Emtek L-Square Straight Knurled Lever also in Unlacquered Brass. I am SO excited to see how these age and turn, it’ll be a perfect addition to the handmade, natural feel I have going on with the shower and floor tile.”

We so appreciate the thought and intention behind this choice in hardware and it makes the project all the more special.

Cass Makes Home

Cass, the designer behind Cass Makes Home, created a beautiful and serene spa bathroom. She opted for Emtek’s Narrow Modern Rectangular Pocket Door Mortise Lock to create a luxurious experience from the moment you enter the room.

That’s a wrap! Thank you to everyone who chose to use Emtek hardware in their One Room Challenge renovations. Seeing our hardware shine in all these beautiful spaces each season is always a treat. We hope to continue the tradition of partnering with ORC participants for many seasons to come.
