Matt Dolan in our decorator showroom displaying Emtek’s new crystal knobs

Are you seeking a stylish update for your home? We invite interior designers, architects, custom home builders and homeowners seeking quality door hardware, into our showroom to see, and touch, our wide selection of stunning decorator door hardware.

You may love the look of a round ball-shaped crystal knob, but when you compare its feel and function with an egg-shaped knob, you might change your mind. Take the time to turn and twist a few showroom samples so you’ll know how much torque it takes to open a door.

Anderson Lock is primarily a commercial sales and service company; however, we dedicate a section of our Main Office location in Des Plaines to residential knob and lever displays. Dozens of mounted samples of elegant entry grip handles; state-of-the-art electronic keypad locks; and passage / privacy knob and lever locksets with coordinating deadbolts, await your visit.

Good design takes thought and planning – adding the selection of door hardware to the list of carefully chosen trims elevates the overall interior design of your home. Your hardware selection can reflect your style whether it’s traditional, French country, art deco, mission or early American. There are numerous hardware choices to fit every style and accentuate your design aesthetic. Emtek is the premier decorative door hardware brand, but we also have displays from other quality manufacturers.

Home improvement projects happened at the highest levels in history in 2020, and even though the shipping times are currently longer than in past years, the surge in sales hasn’t slowed.

Door hardware and accessories – the handles, hinges, knobs, and pulls on your doors and drawers are an integral part of home decor. They not only adorn your doors and drawers, but they are one of the few fittings in the home that we actually touch many times in a day!

There are many styles and types of door hardware and accessories available in the market today.

One of them is right for your doors.

Classic residential entry handlesets are kept in stock at Anderson Lock to replace worn out or damaged door hardware. For increased security we offer deadbolts in traditional as well as contemporary designs and finishes.

Emtek Offers A Level of Customization That is Hard to Beat

Now is a great time to accessorize interior doors, or simply a master bedroom suite, with Emtek’s crystal door knobs. Choose from a variety of styles and rosettes, and perhaps also match with trendy crystal cabinet pulls.

Front Counter Manager, Thomas Didier, notes that many residential customers visit the Emtek website [] to compare and select from countless designs and finishes, then call Anderson Lock to order.

Filters help you refine your search as you pair the passage / privacy knob and lever styles with round, oval, square, and rectangular rosettes to create a custom look for your home.

Emtek’s tubular entry sets fit standard door preps. They are offered in an array of designs including finishes such as polished bass, medium bronze, and pewter, amongst others. Tubular entry sets can be customized with your choice of trim: lever or knob.
