Once you decide on the hardware finish you will then need to choose the functionality of the door knobs for each room. Bathroom and bedrooms will typically use a privacy lock to allow the occupants of that room to lock the door from the inside. If you are doing the installation be sure you place the lock on the inside of the room to prevent anyone from being locked in the room and place the unlocking key somewhere on the outside of the room where it can be easily accessed in case of an emergency. (On top of the door molding is a typical location.) Passageway locksets are typically for doors that do not require a privacy lock such as closets doors to stairways laundry rooms mud rooms or hallways. Dummy door knobs can also be used to provide a handle to pull open a door that is held shut by a magnet rather than a lock - these are typically used on closets with double doors.
Solid bronze and brass door hardware is produced today - allowing you to incorporate new patterns into your home and specifically your interior and exterior doors. This hardware can transform your home into a showpiece but be sure to follow a few simple steps. First use solid brass hardware on every door in your house (inside and out) to create a common theme. By using similar designs or patterns (such as roped Eastlake Victorian themes) you can further tie the look together. Second be sure to replace other worn hardware in your home such as cabinet knobs and drawer pulls with coordinating brass hardware.
Another room in which door hardware plays an important role is the kitchen. Kitchen design can almost focus upon door hardware given the large amount of cabinets in the room. In many kitchens cabinets are hanging directly at eye level. Choosing door knob hardware for your cabinets that coordinates with your theme but doesnt overwhelm is extremely important. For example if you have wooden floors cabinets and counters paired with sleek silver appliances - you can easily pull these two materials together with the use of door hardware. Instead of opting for traditional wooden pulls for your cabinets... choosing silver door knob hardware incorporates the material of the appliances onto the wooden cabinets. Without having to undergo any serious remodels or projects - your kitchen design has become more coordinated and organized.
Sliding room dividers are also great accessories for separating rooms within the home. The divider doors come with sturdy rolling tracks to keep them secure and in place. Sliding room dividers can be inexpensively designed for your particular needs. The hardware for these doors are easily accessorized which is why it is easy to add class to any room without ripping out walls and hiring expensive contractors.
