Door with kick plate

Kick plates are metal or plastic strips that protect the bottom of your door from scuffs, dents and scratches. While kick plates are more common in public places, an increasing number of homeowners are adding them to their homes. Here’s why:

Looks. Kick plates come in a variety of colors, materials and styles. Brass, nickel, copper, bronze, pewter and black steel add to the style of a room and ensure your doors avoid scratches and dents. It’s important to match your kick plates to your existing décor. For example, if your kitchen has stainless steel countertops, match their aesthetics with a stainless kick plate. Traditional décor works with a variety of kick plate materials, but it’s best to always go for an understated look.

Protection. Doors in busy areas of your home begin to show their wear and tear over time — especially near the bottom. Kick plates cover vulnerable areas of your doors and help you avoid unsightly nicks, dents and scratches. Kick plates work well on your front door, kitchen door and living room door.
