Our Door Hardware 101 article will help you determine what you need and will help you be more familiar with terms we may use throughout the website. To get you started in your decision on the design, here are a few things to think about.
Doorknobs are going to be the least expensive option for new or replacement hardware. Door knobs are pretty standard in size and are comfortable to hold in your hand. Most doorknobs that the majority of us are used to are a formed zinc die cast type knob that is hollow inside. These are the most affordable and common door knobs. If you like the simplicity of a door knob, but want something nicer, you might consider Emtek or Baldwin brand doorknobs as they are made of solid brass and have a nice solid feel.
For a more elegant look, check out our huge selection of door levers. We have levers in many brands and hundreds of styles and finishes. Levers often require a little more planning when ordering as you may have to specify your door handing, but the upgraded look it worth the time spent.
