I have been living in my home for 26 years now, and my front door has been painted, repainted, sanded and repainted again and again.  Frankly the door is tired and really is in need of retirement.  Sure, I have been pondering replacing them for the longest time, but now is the time, and here is why.  I co-own a showroom in Fairfield, NJ, called Hardware Designs.  We have sold decorative hardware from companies such as Baldwin, Omnia, Rocky Mountain, Nobilus, Classic Brass etc. etc., for many years, and yes, I have some great hardware on my own doors.  Having noisy, sub-standard hollow core doors in my interior, and tired front doors simply does not do the great hardware any favors.  Having recently made the decision to get into some truly wonderful doors here at Hardware Designs will finally put me into gear and move forward with some door renovation that is sorely needed.  We have built a new space to accommodate this new collection of doors from various top grade door manufacturers.  Jeld-wen, Architectural Traditions, and Mahogany Wood Products lead the way on the decorative end along with a handful of others for the interior requirements.  Now for once, it will be easy to select a choice door, be it wood, fibre glass, or composite, and add the some choice hardware from  our vast collection of locks.  We have been in the lock business for over 70 years, and our display certainly does the category justice.  People had to find doors at various places, but  for once, one stop shopping will finally make this project easy and relatively painless.  Sure, some of the doors can be mind bending expensive, but  I promise you that when one witnesses the quality the true meaning of value becomes understood.  We complete the project with great ball bearing hinges and anything else that is required, and your new doors will satisfy you for as long as you own your home.  It is fun to see the expression on customer’s faces when they first view our collections.  “Wow, amazing, unbelievable” etc. etc., are the common words used.   I love this!  Come stop by and enjoy the display and get a feel for what Hardware Designs is all about.  See us online at or email us at
