Think of door hardware as jewelry for a room: Without the right knobs or levers, your home isn’t properly dressed.
Charlotte Moss wishes people would pay more attention to the hardware on their doors.
“It’s one of those items that sometimes gets left to the end” of renovations, said Ms. Moss, the well-known interior designer. “To me, it’s equivalent to a buzzkill when you spend all this money decorating or building a house and forget about those details.”
While doorknobs are relatively small, they have a “huge impact” on the way people perceive a space, she said: “It’s like a woman putting on jewelry. If you’ve got a great dress on and put on a pair of terrible earrings, that’s the first thing everybody’s going to notice.”
