~Interior Door Hardware Inspiration~ February 21 2020

Luxe Architectural Two Piece Door Moulding Kit

 

If you’re getting ready to give the doors in your house a makeover, there are some pretty awesome door hardware options out there! I've put together some resources and inspiration to get you started!

Most of my product picks are from Emtek and Baldwin. (I have in no way been compensated for this post, and I do not have any affiliation with these companies. I’m just passing along helpful suggestions from years of experience in the design and construction industry 😊). Emtek and Baldwin are well-known manufactures that have been around for a long time. Their products are of good quality and reasonably priced.  If you’ve held lesser quality door hardware in your hand, say at a big-box home improvement store, and then picked up a higher quality one at a door and hardware store, it becomes clear why there’s a price difference; there is a weight to it, and it just feels good in your hand. That’s why I like Emtek and Baldwin; they are good quality, stylish, and reasonably priced. In fact, for my recent product photoshoots, I only used Balwin and Emtek hardware.  Both companies allow you to easily customize your hardware so you can curate a selection that fits with you and your home, from the style of the rose (the base of the knob or lever) to many finish options!

Baldwin Hardware has a visualization design tool on their website that is fun to play with! It allows you to choose your knob/lever, the rose, and the finish (Baldwin offers up to 18 finishes to choose from!)  Baldwin Hardware Lock Designer 

The door knobs/levers pictured below are available online as a double passage, with the least expensive starting at $72.00. I like to purchase from www.DoorHardwareCenter.com.They’re knowledgable, so if you’re new to swapping out door hardware, they will help you with picking the correct configuration before you place your order. Their pricing is competitive; they offer trade discounts and a good return policy. If ordering online feels a little daunting, visit your local door and hardware store where you will also find knowledge staff.

~ Hinges ~

It's the easiest to swap out hinges on existing doors if you match up the size andBaldwin Door Hinges style (rounded or square corners) and match the screw hole pattern. If it's in the budget, ball bearing hinges are the best choice. Prices vary from $15 pair and up.
