Art NoveauIn the architecture and design industry, home hardware is often referred to as “house jewelry, ” and there’s good reason: Just as the right jewelry can be used to enhance an outfit you wear, the hardware you select for your house can provide that extra finishing touch that sets your home apart and provides it with a unique custom look that’s all your own.

Home door hardware has gone through a renaissance in recent years. For many decades up until the 20th century, doorknobs and hinges ranged from plain and simple to magnificently ornate, giving a home’s designer and owner a lot of latitude when choosing a style. But for much of the 20th century, a lot of door and cabinet hardware was pretty plain; while different finishes were available, for most homes – and especially for those built during the housing boom that followed World War II – the styles themselves were fairly bland.

Door Hardware to Suit Old Homes

Emtek hardware isn’t just for new homes; many of their styles are ideal for older homes that reflect a specific time period of design history.

Case in point: Emtek’s Art Nouveau designs feature fluid lines and period details that make them the ideal complement for homes built during the Victorian and Edwardian eras or those built to reflect those periods.

Their Arts and Crafts line is the perfect combination of form and function and works beautifully with craftsman-style homes including bungalows and Frank Lloyd Wright-style homes of the first half of the 19th century.

DX, LX, EX are standard trims

DX is the best - fewest toys to go bad. However, many years the DX did not have the most economical engine. DX usually has no A/C, no cruise, the only prob with DX is no tachometer.
LX adds the very useful tach, plus power windows that start failing at 120k miles, cruise which is nice on occasion, A/C which is useful for defogging, but not too good at summer cooling, garish chrome around the windows and front grille. Same engine as DX.
EX adds VTEC engine, with typ 15-20 more HP, and if driven gently, a few more MPG, also a somewhat troublesome remote door entry system and few other trinkets that become the things you put money into as the car ages
