Last year we upgraded our doorknobs in our homes. Partly because we liked the hardware and price and partly because Jake was selling it on www.directdoorhardware.com I experimented with the knobs and hardware on my own homes. I got a lot of compliments from realtors and homebuyers. In fact, my home sales have increased this year. Jake has been so successful selling door knobs on line, that he has been able to lower the costs. It is now possible to get designer hardware for the same price as the regular brass stuff. I highly recommend using nicer hardware to give your home that extra special touch. It is kind of the difference between luxury cars like Jaguars. Look at the difference that little Jaguar on the hood makes. Nice hardware gives your home the same luxurious feel.
