Stainless steel is one other most durable materials for door furniture knobs. There are both satin stainless and polished stainless knobs. There are different grading of the stainless steel and you can get an average grade for your household use. Chrome and brass are also durable materials for door handles. Other knobs such as glass are delicate and may be inappropriate for exterior doors. Though they are very beautiful and classy, they may easy be dirtied and will look bad if not cleaned and shined. Wood knobs are also available. They may not be as durable as the steel handles but they are much cheaper.

Many shops, brick-and-mortar or online, offer a full range of designs for door handles, from antique to modern minimalist. If you have a Victorian or other traditional type of home, you might want to try a glass door knob to add elegance and highlight your architectural design. Your minimalist home, meanwhile, would look very chic in any type of chrome door handles, whether in satin or polished finish. With the right design, this little piece of hardware can definitely make a big impact. Once you have installed your door accessories, you should, of course, maintain them properly, too.

If you keep using misaligned locks and latches, you will not only destroy the hardware, but you may also be locked inside or outside your house or your room.

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.

You should also be aware of what kind of material your door hardware is made of, so you won't be applying any harmful chemical that might make it rust easily.

It would, indeed, be a pity if you go through all this trouble of finding the perfect door hardware, just to be left with one that does not work properly in just a year or so. Be sure to keep in mind these tips so you will have door hardware that suits your requirements, design- and function-wise.

To reduce the likelihood of this, make sure to remove any harmful deposits that may lead to corrosion occurring, and wipe over the door handle from time to time with a light oil applied with a soft cloth. If you can avoid doing the following, you'll help extend the life of your door handles: Don't hang excessive weight from the handle e.g. full shopping bags. Don't allow children to hang from or play with the handle. Don't use the handle as a door stop against a wall - far better to install a door stop to prevent the door handle banging against the wall (you can find some great ones here). So to keep your door handles, door pulls and door furniture looking like new, a few minutes cleaning and care every couple of months or so will have a significant impact on the long term maintenance requirements of your products.

The Nimbus is a completely different style from the Monet, and this shows most clearly in the handle, which is designed rather in the shape of a hairbrush, with a large extending shaft which is connected to the spindle inside the door, and then a rounded lever designed to be used to open the door. This rounded edge is covered with a different colour metal, intended to show off the different stages of the design. The lever is carefully made to ensure the most comfort possible to the user. This design appears in colours of brushed nickel with a polished chrome edge.
