Your Guide to Door Hardware

Here is a list of some door hardware options and how they are best utilized to complement your design aesthetic and fit your household needs.

Door Knob

A door knob adds simplistic design to both exterior and interior doors. If you have kids in your home, knobs may be a good option for you because they are harder to turn. Door knobs come in a number of different styles, sizes, and colors. You can even opt for a glass door knob like the one pictured below.

Lever Handle

Some people prefer a lever handle over a door knob. Lever handles are easier to use and can provide a unique style to both interior and exterior doors. Lever door handles come in a wide variety of styles, including modern, contemporary and traditional.

Door Handle Set

A front entry set is a great way to increase curb appeal while adding safety and security to your home. Entrance sets are two pieces. The first piece includes a lever or knob handle with a key lock. The other piece includes a lever or knob handle with a lock that you can turn without requiring the use of a key. Door handle sets come in a wide variety of styles and designs to fit the look and feel of your home.

Dummy Sets

Dummy sets are great for hallway doors, cabinets and double door pantries because they look like a regular door knob, but they don’t require any turning. All you need to do is pull the door open. These door knobs are extremely easy to install because they don’t require a latch.

Passage Sets

This type of door hardware is great for places like a den or a basement because it doesn’t have a lock. You can choose either a knob or a lever depending on your personal preference.
