Calandre Door Hardware July 24th, 2018 - 13:16:55
If you are using vintage door hardware made of brass for achieving the antique look you should know that they need to be cleaned periodically. When you buy it for the first time these types of door hardware are normally tarnished which needs to be cleaned till the required results are obtained. First of all place a masking tape over the door hinges side on the outside the door has to be closed while doing this. Now after opening the door you need to tape the hinges around on the other side. This way the door and the frame can be protected from brass polish. Hinges have to be removed entirely and the door has to be rehanged once the task is completed and the hardware is cleaned.
Beyond the functionality you can also choose to use door knobs or door handles. Door handles are generally easier to operate (even dogs learn to open them) and add a European look. Door knobs can be more elegant especially if you opt for crystal door knobs. If you are building a custom home you will also choose the interior door styles. Your door hardware style and finish should be complimentary to the door style. As an example: six panel oak doors with oil rubbed bronze hardware and crystal door knobs will give a new home an older feel especially when matched with oil rubbed bronze schoolhouse ceiling light fixtures and oil rubbed bronze faucets.
Pocket door hardware is functional and has no bearing on physical appearance. The pocket door hardware includes rails of metal or plastic with rollers or casters that allows the door to glide into and out of an extended wall on either side to seal off a room. The pocket door hardware can be cheap or expensive. The expensive side allows your doors to remain steady and glide shut easily whereas the cheaper will have you seeing your door sag and be tougher to pull shut.
However if you are considering a big home remodeling project dont let your doors get lost in the shuffle. If youre updating your entire homes look - its a good idea to give your door hardware an update. Even if youre just replacing your door handles you are instantly updating the look and feel of your entry way. This is what visitors into your home see first and door hardware definitely makes a difference. Home accents are so much more than artwork plants and table coverings. As a homeowner its important to concentrate on the details of your home in order to pull together your entire décor. Details like door handles impact your overall design or theme greatly. Although they may not be the first thing the eye notices if you have decorative hardware it certainly makes your space look much more planned and pulled together. Isnt this what we as homeowners strive for? An organized well designed space? This is easily accomplished through the right home accents.
