High ROI Home Updates #1: Swap Brass Fixtures & Hardware with Satin Nickel

Home Updates that Give You Exponential ROI


Many homes built pre-2000 have dated brass fixtures and hardware throughout. Brass was popular in the 80s and 90s, but has since been replaced with satin nickel. For less than $2,500, we are going to show you how to make your home look amazing with satin nickel updating. Experience tells us you can expect a 4X-5X return by swapping brass with satin nickel on your property.


The table below shows approximate costs to swap out brass hardware for a typical 4 bed, 4 bath home in the Denver Metro area based upon research (and personal experience!) with Home Depot and Amazon.

To determine how much you’ll spend updating your particular home, count the number of interior and exterior doors, kitchen and bathrooms (including the number of cabinets), and light fixtures in your home. Multiply each figure by the respective cost and then sum them up. For even more detailed pricing, see the next page.*

How To

  • Shop. The itemized cost chart above can be used as an itemized list of fixtures and hardware you will need to purchase.

  • Tool Up. Before you start, ensure you have the right tools for the job (screw driver, pliers, dowel rods, etc).

  • Study Up. Make sure you know what you’re doing. Watch a quick video!**
