Landon’s Spring Cleaning Tips – New Doorknobs!
It's spring-cleaning time again. But if you want to take it a step further this year and actually IMPROVE your home instead of just cleaning it, here's a small fix that can make a big difference. And won't break your budget!
Replace Those Old Doorknobs!
As a matter of fact, you should replace the hardware on your doors. New doorknobs and hinges cost about $5 each, but they can make a big difference.
Need some help finding just the right knob for your door? Here's a website with THOUSANDS of them to choose from! Or you can just go to your closest hardware store.
I can tell you that it's incredibly easy to switch out doorknobs and hinges. I did it myself on every single door in my house just last month...and I had NO IDEA what I was doing!
99% of doorknobs and hinges are 'standard', meaning that they're universal and can be used on any door. Just take a measurement of your hinges and doorknob diameter before you head to the store.
