Door Decor with Schlage’s Decorative Collections

Spruce up a boring door quickly with Schlage’s NEW Decorative Collections!

I don’t know about you – but I am still addicted to Pinterest. I was there before the huge rush of people were interested in it a few months ago – and I continue to spend way too much time finding things that I want to do around my house. Fun part is – I have actually been able to complete some of the projects!

One of the projects on my list was redoing our interior doors. Our trim and doors were orangey-brown when we moved in and I have painted and painted and painted to make it all white and I love the look! However, I still needed to do the doors. Product received for review. Post contains affiliate links.

I was able to paint, and add some texture to them with wallpaper and trim to dress up the look (make-over for all 7 doors for under $80 total!).


But they still needed something… doorknobs perhaps?

Beautiful Door Knobs

Schlage has recently introduced their Decorative Collections. You get to choose the look you want and the finish you want – leaving over 1,000 different combinations in your hands! I was so excited to review these because I got to choose the look I wanted. I choose the Camelot Collection with the Accent Lever.

I was torn between the look of the Oil Rubbed Bronze and the Satin Nickel, but I eventually decided the Satin Nickel might be something that wouldn’t go out of style for awhile (but hey, what do I know?).

Before starting, I knew door KNOBS are easy to install – I found the lever to be easy, but it took a little more thought than a door knob to make sure everything was going the right direction.

The directions are easy to follow, and it is only a couple screws you have to tighten to get the new lever (or knob) installed. TaDa! New door knobs, and a much classier look than the scratched up brass ones (or missing ones because of the foreclosure).


You can find a selection of the Decorative Collection at your local hardware store – or you can go online and figure out what you want with the Schlage Style Selector and find a retailer that has the look you want.

Which one is your favorite?

Those doorknobs are way prettier than the round bronze ones we have. You are inspiring me to start upgrading :D

Love your door makeovers! Ours are white but they are plain and boring. It's amazing how easily you can make a difference. You've inspired me!

Wait, that bead board is wall paper? They look GREAT!

Yes! They make textured wall paper that looks like bead board or stone or whatever and you can paint it! Check out my blog at for more about the door makeover :)

I've honestly never replaced a door knob before but those are certainly pretty neat!
