Many homeowners feel confused about home door hardware function, terminology and selection. Door hardware is an important home design feature that requires careful selection in order to be sure that your high-end door knobs, lock-sets, and handle sets offer the beauty, functionality and security you require for your home. Here are a few facts about selecting interior and exterior door locksets, from HomeTips.com:
Interior Room Door Locksets
Interior lock-sets are available in a wide array of features, functional qualities and prices. Referred to as interior knobs, passage locksets, spring-latch locks, or tubular locks, the most common type used for bathroom and bedroom doors is called a privacy lock. It releases easily from the outside with a thin object inserted in the small hole at the center of the knob. They are available in many styles, from round and oval knobs to straight and curved levers. For a home that is designed with aging-in-place or universal design strategies, the lever handle is the best choice.
Exterior Entrance Door Locksets
Since many of the door knobs, locksets, and handle sets in your home are used frequently, it is important to purchase a high quality set that is durable. HomeTips.com says, “Because they are also a highly visible part of your home, locksets should be chosen with an eye toward quality and style. Generally, for more security, you are looking for a lockset with a deadbolt, and for a maximum level of security, a double-cylinder deadbolt.”
