The Kitchen is the one room in the house that presents the door handle manufacturer and supplier with a range of problems peculiar to that room and which are worth considering. The door handles require a number of design factors to be considered dependent on their position and usage. The first problem with a kitchen is that because it deals with food it is susceptible to the transmission of germs throughout the kitchen. Food is invariably transported and prepared by hand and this is then transmitted to other surfaces when cupboards are opened and closed. The fridge and freezer are the major culprits because these are the most commonly used appliances but the other cupboards are also a prime contenders. The use of door handles to open the cupboard doors are the prime region of contact where and whilst some materials are better than others for retaining germs, all of the handles do it to some degree. Therefore it is worth using a door handle that is easily cleaned on a regular basis so that any germs are disinfected quickly and precisely.
The other important aspect to consider when buying door handles is the aesthetic beauty. There are artistic knobs that may take diverse shapes such as a hand, bottle or a key. Some handles are placed at the center of the door for aesthetics. You can also get a see through knobs or a old fashioned ones. The door knobs also come in diverse colors to match with the door furniture and the rest of the house.
Before proceeding with the door handle replacement project, you should collect your tools at one place and open the door slightly. Check the interior sides of the handle to find the screws. If you do not find the screws, then the door handle head should be popped-off using a flathead screwdriver. The screwdriver head should be inserted into the side slot and turned slightly. The cover on the handle will come-off exposing the screw. The screw can be turned and removed. This should be done for both sides of the handle - inside as well as outside. Then the screws on the strike plate are removed from the side of the door and then the latch is removed. In case of screen doors and storm doors, you can skip this step. The next step in door handle replacement is to take a measurement of the distance between the side of the door and the holes. This distance is called 'back set' and it can help you to make sure that the new handles will work properly with the door.
