Solid bronze and brass door hardware is produced today - allowing you to incorporate new patterns into your home and specifically your interior and exterior doors. This hardware can transform your home into a showpiece but be sure to follow a few simple steps. First, use solid brass hardware on every door in your house (inside and out) to create a common theme. By using similar designs or patterns (such as roped, Eastlake, Victorian themes) you can further tie the look together. Second, be sure to replace other worn hardware in your home, such as cabinet knobs and drawer pulls, with coordinating brass hardware.
Stained doors work well in either exterior or interior applications, as well as the nylon hardware. You can use stained doors with a variety of colors and finishes, and it still looks good. The nylon hardware is durable enough to last in any application, as well as quiet enough to use in a nursery or library. It can also work with many colors or finishes and still look classy enough for classic looks or rustic enough to fit in a rustic setting. If you put nylon hardware with other types of doors, you can create a very different look altogether for the design that you are looking for.
Although many homeowners overlook their door hardware, doors are what guests to your home touch first. Although you may have spent thousands of dollars perfectly furnishing the rooms that lie behind these doors, the first impression that visitors have center around door hardware. These small details in the home make a bigger impact than most assume. Moving on from just the front door, doors to rooms like the bathroom, the bedroom, and the kitchen all act as the barrier between guests and these beautifully designed rooms. Within these rooms lie other doors. Things like cabinets also require the same attention when it comes to choosing door hardware.
The foregoing are the main types of door hardware. These are all a door needs to function in a basic sense. There is, however, the possibility of adding other types of hardware to a door. For instance, one could conceivably add a door sweep at the bottom. This is most often a thin piece of aluminum with either a piece of rubber or a brush like fibers of some natural or synthetic material that prevent drafts from coming in under the door. These are very handy for drafty exterior doors and are often included with screen doors. They are usually screwed to the front of the door or otherwise affixed.
Barn door hardware is essentially large sliding barn doors that are slightly expensive but elegant looking. The hardware comprises of metal tracks and wheels and bolts required for it to be wall-mounted. An ordinary sliding track can be extremely costly - almost $800 for high-end quality. The doors are not included in this costing and must be purchased locally and later customized to fit your preferences. Some are fitted with sliding mirrors which can be used in bathrooms for extra privacy. The greatest advantage, of course, is that with it, you need not reserve extra space that you would normally have to keep for an ordinary door to be opened. These doors do not slide into walls; rather these add to the overall decor of any room.
