Question DetailsAsked on 3/7/2017

Is it proper to replace door knobs with antique brass on one side and brushed nickel on the other?

My bedrooms have antique brass hardware on furniture and ceiling fans but I want brushed nickel door knobs on outside of all doors so that hallway is uniform. Is it proper to replace door knobs with antique brass on bedroom side and brushed nickel on hallway side?

Is it "proper" - ask Miss Manners or Dear Abby. Otherwise, why not - only looks funny it the door is standing open showing the knobs/levers on both sides to one point of view. Though you may have to go directly to the hardware manufacturer or a special fasteners and hardware shop (msot large cities have one specializing in woodworking supplies, specialty hardware, etc) or specialty hardware or reclaimed hardware shop online to get just individual knobs/handles without the entire lock assembly, because entire lock assemblies is probably going to about double the cost of doing this.
This is commonly done in high-end houses for just your reason - for uniformity of appearance in the main halls, but individualized knobs on the room interiors which might be knobs or levers or other odd shapes, and brass, copper, stainless, nickel, wood, etc depending on the individual room's motif.
