A newer perk of smart homes is leveraging your network to control the home - your lights, curtains, heating, kitchen appliances, air conditioning and more. The technology is basically a receiver and actuator - such as a WIFI radio with motors for the curtains, or Bluetooth radio and switches to control your lighting. You can use a phone, tablet or sensor as the input, perhaps even using the Internet to control your home from outside. Previously restricted to the high-end, keep your eye out for devices such trickling down to the budget market.

You could decide to pick a colour which complements the room, and which will therefore add harmony and balance to your surroundings, or you could decide to include something which contrasts heavily with the other features of the room the door is in. This can help to create an eye-catching feature, particularly when decorated with contrasting colours and shapes. Use these features to design a room which causes people to take notice of all the accessories, or to provide a contrast which shows that the door and the frame are part of something separate.

There are two types of handles, when it comes to general use: external or outdoor handles which are utilized on all main entrances to the home, be it front door, back door, side door or service door; and internal handles which are used for the doors inside the house such as bedroom doors and toilet doors. One of the most popular broad types of external door handles is the lever type, which is commonly used in European homes. External latches are normally bigger as they frequently come with key-in locks for security, and are called lever lock handles. Indoor handles (or lever latch handles) are smaller, as they come without locks, and key-in locks are normally installed separately on the door. There are also external handles with combined door knockers, a very practical alternative when your electric door buzzer is out of order.

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.

When you are looking at door handles, it is also a good idea to consider the types of handle accessories that you might need, including locks, latches, and hinges for the other side of the door. All of these can affect how the door is opened and closed, and can also add to the atmosphere and appearance of a room. When you are making these purchases, it makes sense to buy a set together, rather than buying individual pieces and then using them together.
