Replace Doorknobs to Update Your Home

When searching for an upgrade or renovation that can really update the look of a home, as well as serve a practical purpose, updating your doorknobs is a great, cost-effective choice.

When searching for an upgrade or renovation that can really update the look of a home, as well as serve a practical purpose, updating your doorknobs is a great, cost-effective choice.  There are many reasons you might consider updating your doorknobs.  Perhaps you are changing out fixtures and other hardware in your home and opting for a different metal.  If this is the case and you want a cohesive look, you may be considering matching the doorknob material to the rest of the hardware and fixture updates.  Perhaps you are making other changes to the architecture or interior aesthetic of your home and now your doorknobs just look a bit outdated or out of place.  Perhaps multiple doorknobs are broken and rather than replace one or two, you want to just go ahead and replace them all.  Whatever the reason, simply replacing doorknobs can really update the look of your doors.

It may look and seem simple, but replacing your doorknobs is not as easy as it looks.  Additionally, there are many styles and materials from which to choose.  It is best to consult your contractor or handyman for advice when choosing styles and features and allow a professional to install your new doorknobs to ensure they work properly for years to come.  There are a wide variety of finishes and styles from which to choose.  Depending on the design aesthetic of your home, as well as the architectural style and personal preference, choose a style that is timeless but that also enhances the look of your home.  While they are small, doorknobs can really add character and style in a subtle way.One of the most common mistakes when someone decides to DIY their doorknob replacement is placing the locking knob on the interior of the door.  This is not only frustrating because you have to fix the problem and start over but it can also lead to scratching or damaging of the knob in the process so it is always better to get it right the first time.  Another problem many people encounter is getting proper alignment of the bolt which may impact how the door closes.  Remember, when you replace a doorknob you also need to replace the strike plate and hinges to ensure everything matches and looks nice, as well as aligns so that the door opens and closes properly.  Further, different doors in your home require different knobs with different locking options.  Due to all of these factors, it is always best to rely on the expertise and experience of a professional handyman or contractor who can install doorknobs properly.
