Sliding closet doors were invented to help create the most space possible with closets. They slide on a smooth surface track system which is easily installed and maintained. When these doors were first invented they proved to be very expensive for homeowners however; this has changed and become more affordable for the average homeowner. Sliding doors come in various styles and materials which prove that homeowners can have style and creativity in their home minus the high cost of redecorating fees. Closets are now featured elements in homes which provide beautiful space efficient focal points to any room within the home. Sliding closet door hardware can be added to further transform the looks. With a variety of materials such as wood glass mirrored knobs and handles the choices are nearly endless.
Door locks come in a huge variety and this variety gets even greater if you look at how they have evolved through time. The basic principle of most locks is a bolt of some sort. This bolt need only be some sort of bar cylinder lug or other contrivance that extends from the swinging part of the door into some kind of receiving area on the frame. This simply stops the door from swinging open.
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.
