I am absolutely IN LOVE with our new door knobs, and today I am going to show you how to install new door knobs with Nostalgic Warehouse.
The first knob took me a little while to figure out, but after I got the hang of it, it really was easy (by the end I was able to install the knobs in under five minutes). I am sharing a video tutorial for how to install a door knob (and I also have a written tutorial if you prefer that route).
But first, here’s the video:
REMOVE OLD DOOR KNOB
To begin, you will want to remove the old door knob. This is fairly easy and will require removing some screws. You may want to sand and paint the area where your old door knob was in case your new knob isn’t the exact same size.
INSTALL THE INTERIOR WORKING PARTS
Install the anti-r0tation block (make sure the arrow points towards the side of the door that opens and shuts), the latch tongue and the spindle.
ADD THE FACEPLATE
Use two screws to install the faceplate and be sure to use a hand-held screwdriver.
ADD THE DOOR KNOBS
Once the door knobs are installed (and make sure you use a hand-held screwdriver for all steps), then the last thing to do is to install the new strike plate.
On my doors, I used Nostalgic Warehouse’s Studio Short Plate in Antique Brass with the Porcelain Knob in Black. I love their elegant and timeless look – something I am always trying to achieve in my home decor style.
