We moved into an older home 12 years ago and have been busy updating it, slowly over the years. One thing that has always bothered me in the home were the doors and door knobs. The home is over 35 years old and the doors have taken a beating and none of the door hardware in the home matched.
The door hardware ranged from silver, brass, gold and really tarnished :). I was excited to be able to replace our old interior door knobs with new and MATCHING ones! These new door knobs are so beautiful and look so good with our wood doors.
Changing the old hardware made such a huge difference in the overall clean and finished look in our home. We have so many…SO MANY…doors in this house. So it took a while to get all the door knobs changed out, but it has been so worth it!
These Kwikset door knobs are so easy to replace. You can replace a door knob in just a few minutes. These door knobs fit all standards doors and require only a screwdriver (or a drill) to replace.
Kwikset has a wide variety of door knobs and a variety of finishes to choose from as well. Whether you need a new interior knob or exterior knob, or multiple, Kwikset has it! The hardest thing was trying to decide on which door knob to use. We ended up choosing the Cameron Knobs in the Venetian Bronze Finish.
We installed a combination of the Hall and Closet Knobs and the Bed and Bath Locking Door Knobs throughout our home.
DOOR KNOB INSTALLATION
- new door knob
- screw driver or drill
- Remove old door knob.
- Take new doorknob out of packaging.
- Unhook two sides of door knob
- With a drill or screwdriver, drill in the provided screws in until you have about 1/4 in left.
- Using your drill or screwdriver, place the new faceplate on the edge of the door, securing the latch mechanism.
- Place half of the doorknob (the locking mechanism if using a lock door knob) on backside of door.
- On the opposite side of the door, line up other half of the door knob. Then, twist until it slides and locks into place.
- Tighten the screws with your screwdriver.
