Home Update Q&A with Dana Dore from Adored House

Dana Dore is the blogger behind Adored House, a showcase of house projects, pretty flowers, family, and food. While updating her upstairs hallway, she felt the door hardware didn’t quite match the luxurious wallpaper and decorative accents that were helping to adorn the space. She chose to install new Ageless Iron door hardware to match the other lovely updates in her home.
Why did you decide to switch out your door hardware?

It's the little details like hardware that can make or break a home's design - especially when trying to infuse "old house charm" and character into a newer home. Changing my hardware took my interior doors from builder grade to classically timeless!

How did you choose the hardware? What attracted you to Ageless Iron?

A timeless, ageless look is what I strive for in my home. Because it is a newer, builder-grade home, I wanted to choose hardware that looks like it could have come from a 1920's craftsman home and wanted it to have the modern functionality and durability of a newer product. Ageless Iron Hardware is precisely that. The pieces I chose for my home are classic, timelessly beautiful, and I know they are built to last!

How long did this project take to complete?

To change out four sets took no more than an hour! They are so simple to install and only require a Phillips head screwdriver.

Will you use this hardware again in other projects/areas of your home? If so, why?

I have recommended Ageless Iron products to numerous friends and design clients. Like me, they want to invest in quality products for their home that they do not have to change up every few years because of low quality and fading styles. Ageless Iron products are designed to last both physically and visually for years to come!

Did you learn any tips and tricks about door hardware along the way you think would benefit others?

When we first bought this house, I desperately wanted to change the interior doors' hardware because they were majorly dated. Instead of going to a quality product, I opted for inexpensive knobs that looked good. In hindsight, I wish I had invested in quality pieces like those from Ageless Iron. The cheap knobs I started with ended up breaking and becoming very scratched up in a short amount of time.

A lot of people want to get involved in small home updates. What are some recommendations or tips for readers who wish to transform their home?

My advice would be to give yourself time to live in a space before making all of the design decisions, and when you start, start small. Paint the walls, change out lighting, swap out hardware. All of those little updates will make the space feel more customized and give you more clarity on more significant home decisions down the line - like major kitchen renovations or investing in expensive furniture.

What is next for you and your renovations/business/blog?

I just finished a significant living room renovation where I did a lot (including building a DIY fireplace), so I'm taking a little break before jumping into something big again. However, I am dreaming up some plans for my kitchen.
