What is Door Hardware?

Door Hardware Basics

Once you start to look around, door hardware is in just about every room of your house. The term door hardware encompasses several categories of items including handlesets, knobs, hinges, deadbolts, address numbers, door stops, register covers, door knockers, peep holes, and door bells. While most of these items apply to your front door hardware, some of them are used on the interior spaces of your home as well.

Door hardware parts can be found in dozens of finishes to coordinate with your home style, or you can opt for custom-made hardware or antique door hardware. In addition to your local hardware store, the Internet offers many design choices that you might not be able to find in retail stores. You can even order door hardware over the internet from European or Asian manufacturers. Before placing an order online for door hardware, make sure the website features secure ordering and has a satisfactory return policy.
