Packing for a Move

Welcome to my website. I’m hoping to provide you with some useful packing tips. My name is Ellen Monday. My family and I moved from a very large home to a large home. My point being, although we still live in a large house, we did downsize. It was almost like packing for two moves because we had belongings going to the new house and some going to storage. We had to make decisions about what we wanted to keep, store and get rid of. I have some tips on how we made those decisions, and the best ways we found to pack. Items that were going into storage were packed differently than those we were moving to the new house. Boxes had to be carefully and clearly marked so we didn’t end up storing our everyday dishes or something tragic like that! Hope you enjoy my blog.

Reasons To Replace Your Home's Interior Door Handles

Aaron Carroll

Replacing some of the interior door handles in your home is a simple home improvement project that you can perform without any prior experience. You'll generally only need a screwdriver to complete this task, and by following the installation instructions on your new door handles' packaging, you'll be able to install them in a short amount of time. If you're interested in tackling this project, visit a home improvement store to buy some new handles that catch your eye. If needed, you can also ask a salesperson any questions you may have about the installation process. Here are some reasons to replace your home's interior door handles.

Updated Look

As time passes, your home's interior door handles may begin to have an outdated look. If you've updated several things around your home but neglected the door handles, they may stand out for the wrong reasons. Replacing them gives you an opportunity to install new door handles that have a modern look. Consider the style that you have in your home and then shop for new handles that will be a good match. For example, you might want a stainless steel or brushed steel design if you favor modern styles.

Improved Performance

Over time, interior door handles can sometimes become difficult to operate. For example, an old handle may be partially seized and challenging to turn when you wish to open a door. While taking the handle apart and lubricating it can sometimes improve its performance, problems can still often persist. If you have some door handles in your home that aren't working well, you don't need to put up with this hassle. Replacing them will give you handles that work reliably every time you turn them.

Different Functionality

There may be some rooms in your home in which you want the door handles to have different functionality. For example, you might have a conventional door handle that you want to replace with a locking door handle. If you've recently set up a home office in your home, you might want to be able to lock the door so that your kids don't walk in and interrupt you when you're dealing with important business. You can buy locking door handles in all sorts of styles, and install these handles wherever you want throughout your home.
