Do your kitchen cabinet doors slam and disturb your family with unwanted noise? All these problems can be taken care of too. Many upscale kitchens now have soft close hinges.

Ok, New Kitchen Hardware, Done! Move on to Doors
But Oh No! Now My Kitchen Looks Great, But My Doors Need Updating Too! So, while you’re having me, The Handy Dan, update your kitchen with new hardware, why not update all your hardware? Doorknobs and door hinges also can be updated. I will change that old worn-out doorknob with a new lever type door handle. Or maybe you’ll like to go old school and change to a classy glass doorknob. These beautiful crystal glass knobs have antique brass plates also.
Just like your clothes, shoes and furniture, you can have your own style reflected in your doorknobs and hardware. Do you like barndoor style? Chrome, glass, brass or copper? Maybe you would like to update to lever type knobs. These newer and more common handles work great if you have small children. They are easier for little hands to grasp and turn. And senior members of your household will probably find lever handles also easier to operate.
Some Doorknob Trivia
At one time, the doorknob was only common in wealthier households. Most homes just had a door bolt on their doors. It wasn’t until 1878 that we see the first documentation of the doorknob invention by Osbourn Dorsey.
Doorknobs come in many types for materials such as metal, glass, and porcelain. It’s interesting to note that Brass is naturally antimicrobial. With doorknobs being a usually very germy item, it’s a good idea to chose Brass. It will look nice, withstand constant use and also ward off those nasty germs.
