Choosing the right home hardware shows that you care about the details of your house. Think about appearance, durability and functionality to get the most out of your hardware for years to come.
For the exterior of your home, you may need house numbers and letters. These should be weather resistant and clearly visible from the street. Entry doors are usually heavy and require large, durable door hinges. They may have door knockers and door chimes and usually have peepholes as well. Choose a doorknob that's scratch resistant and weather resistant, and make sure there's both a lock in the doorknob and a separate deadbolt lock. You may also want a door chain or door bolt for extra security.
Inside doors are generally lighter, so lighter hinges often suffice. For bathrooms and bedrooms, you may want door locks for privacy.
Cabinets sometimes have manual door locks to ensure that they close securely. As an alternative, you can place magnetized hardware on the inside of the door and the edge of a shelf. Cabinet hinges should be light and easy to take apart for cleaning. Choose knobs or cabinet pulls that match the overall decor in the room.
