Choosing The Right Door Hardware For Your Home

Finding the door hardware that brings your vision to life and suits your home’s style is not  deceptively complex. Even the smallest change can make a big impression, so choosing hardware that not only looks great, but also increases your home’s security and functionality is vital. 

Whether you’re selecting doorknobs, locks, handles, levers or latches, the details all work together to create a signature style. And the best part is that you don’t need to undertake a full-on demo or remodel project to realize a huge transformation.

The new look shouldn’t just enhance the appearance of the door itself, but should also compliment the rest of the home’s exterior, including light fixtures, windows, or even patio furniture. Consider every aspect of your home’s exterior to create a lasting first impression. 

No matter your preferences – door knobs, or levers, sleek and modern, or rustic and hand-crafted, Johnson Brothers has an array of top-quality hardware that’ll look and work like new for years to come.  

As the key transition-piece between the interior and exterior of your home, it’s important to select door hardware that also provides the proper level of security to suit your needs. And if you haven’t looked lately, the door lock game has changed substantially in the past few years. Along with conventional keyed locks, smart locks and retrofit smart locks are now options that can bolster the security or nearly any home. 

Conventional and electronic locks don’t have the most advanced features, but they provide a substantial, efficient barrier between your home’s interior and what lies outside.

Consider every aspect of your home’s exterior to create a lasting first impression.

To add convenience to security, smart locks can feature remote control, voice control, access logs, and more. Many of these innovations have become the norm in new-construction homes.

Retrofit smart locks provide a system to add the features of smart locks to an existing key-and-deadbolt lock. The strength of these locks is dependent on the original deadbolt, so it’s important to have strong existing deadbolt hardware to build on.

Before choosing your door lock hardware, be sure to consider your home’s overall accessibility, neighborhood, lock grades, and the level convenience you prefer. A quality deadbolt system is an expense you’ll never regret.
