Interior Decorating and the Finishing Touch
May 2004 - After the moving boxes are put away and the change of address forms have been mailed it’s time to start the fun of decorating the home of your dreams.
As you select furnishings like mirrors, faucets, lamps and lighting fixtures, take a walk through the door hardware aisle and pick up door fixtures that enhance your decorating theme.
The wide selection of finishes like Oil Rubbed Bronze, Satin Nickel and Venetian Bonze allows a homeowner to perfectly match new hardware to their decorating theme, add a touch of flair, or accent a favorite piece of furniture.
Homeowners can also split the finish on doors between to rooms with different themes, installing a chrome knob on the bath side and a satin nickel lever in the master bedroom.
Sculptured knobs can be used to add style and beauty to decorating themes. Knobs like the Kwikset UltraMax® Laurel Egg Knob are available in passage, privacy, keyed and dummy functions. Packages labeled EZ-Install™ are the easiest to install.
Shapely levers, like the scroll pattern of the Lido from Kwikset, add a rich sculpted look to any room. Levers are also a great convenience in everyday use, and for seniors and people with disabilities.
Discuss door hardware options with the associates at your neighborhood Home Depot. Home safety tips and information about Kwikset deadbolts and door hardware products are available online at www.Kwikset.com or call toll free at 1-800-327-LOCK.
