What Type of Lock Should I Put on My Bathroom Door?
Thursday, August 9, 2012
So now that you have a good idea of your desired lock function, you can focus on quality. Just as with any purchase, you want to make sure you are purchasing your interior door hardware from a trusted lock company, like Schlage, that manufactures high quality door locks. Look for companies that honor both a Lifetime mechanical warranty and a Lifetime finish warranty. Because let's face it -- sometimes things happen and you want to ensure you're buying a quality door lock from a company that offers great service and will stand by their products and warranties.
Function, check. Quality, check. Now on to the fun part -- style!
When it comes to selecting interior door hardware for your bathroom you want to first look at the finish or type of metal/material used in the door lock. These finishes can range from historically popular finishes like Bright Brass and Satin Nickel to more modern finishes like Bright Chrome and Matte Black. A good rule of thumb is to compliment your current bathroom fixtures with your interior door hardware. So for example, if your faucets and lighting are a modern stainless steel, you might not want to choose Bright Brass for your bathroom door lock. Selecting a Satin Chrome or Satin Nickel would coordinate better and make your bathroom look that much more polished.
Taa-da! Was that so bad? Just remember...
