Isn’t it amazing how one simple change can make such a big difference? Have you ever changed out a light fixture or a rug in your house and it instantly made the room feel updated? What about your doorknobs? I think this is a decor area that can sometimes be overlooked!
When we moved into our house, there were gold knobs on all the doors…and it wasn’t a pretty gold. I was busy spending money on our kitchen remodel and the floors upstairs, so I decided to just buy a can of spray paint and paint them all black. This was supposed to be a temporary fix, but 8 years later this is what our door knobs looked like (some were even worse):
The paint was wearing off and they looked horrible. So when we decided it was time to update all the doorknobs in our house, I wanted something that was more than just utilitarian. I wanted something that was pretty. I chose a Plymouth knob with Camelot trim from Schlage®. Their door hardware is the perfect finishing touch to any space. Changing out the hardware is a low-investment and high-impact project that can be done in a day. I timed myself and it took less than 8 minutes for me to install one knob. The first one took the longest but once I got into a rhythm they went really quick.
You can choose the finish in any of the Schlage® door hardware to complement your home’s style and décor. I love the traditional look of the Plymouth knob, and the Camelot trim makes it more of a statement. Not only are these handles beautiful, but they are made so much better than our previous handles. I think they fit really well with my modern farmhouse style. Farmhouse and country chic style has evolved in the last few years from being based in dark-toned woods to additionally including lighter wood finishes and softer color schemes. It’s now often seen overlapping with Industrial style products, particularly in light fixtures and exposed plumbing.
Schlage® has a great selection, so you can easily pick the right one for your home.
It always seems that one small project leads to another, am I right? So, now that the doors have new hardware, I think the hall needs a little makeover too. 🙂 I’ll be sharing that AFTER the holidays!
