Gather your supplies
- Doorknob set (we used the Gainsborough Classic Knob Diplomat Passage Set in Bright Goldtone)
- 60mm backset tubular latch
- privacy adaptor kit, to suit
Over time, doorknobs and handles wear out, become hard to operate or just look shabby– like this 20-year-old bathroom knob. But replacing them is easy. Most passage, privacy or entrance sets are sold as complete packs, and they’re quick, simple and cheap to fit. If you don’t want to refinish the door, choose a set that will cover marks from the previous handle.
