How to Pick the Right Door Hardware For Your Home

Door knobs aren’t your only choice for door hardware; there are several available and they all have their own strengths and specific functionalities. So how do you pick the right door hardware for your home? Handyman Connection of Mathews discusses this further.

Door Hardware

Mortise Locksets

The classic mortise lockset is the door hardware of choice for entry doors due to their complex appearance. It has a large rectangular body that cuts into the door edge, sliding into a rectangular pocket or mortise. The handle for this lockset is a lever and often comes with its own lockset and deadbolt. More visually oriented mortise locksets often have a small pull handle.

The cylindrical lockset is an alternative and, as its name suggests, has a knob instead of a lever. Both locksets are ideal for exterior doors, with the mortise lockset better suited for the front door while the cylindrical variant is ideal for back and kitchen doors.

Door Knobs

The simple and no-nonsense doorknob is the ideal choice for interior doors. It has a cylindrical body that fits into holes that are bored into the door’s edge and face. The conventional door knob has a thumb-twist knob lock, and offers minimal but ample security for interior living spaces.

False door knobs are also available. As their name implies, they are cosmetic instead of functional. Since they don’t actually turn open, they’re better suited for closets or as decorative set pieces.


Levers provide the same function as the classic door knob, and usually boast thumb-locks or keyholes. Our team recommends levers for doors that require easy access, such as the bathroom. They make good aging-in-place door hardware since older family members will find them easier to operate.

Handyman Connection of Matthews will help you pick the right door hardware for your home. You can also count on us to professionally install them on your doors. Fill out our form or give us a call at (704) 246-4411 for an estimate on our services.
