Masking tape can serve as temporary pulls on new cabinet doors so you can open them without digging fingernails into a fresh finish. Make a tab and stick the other end over the door top onto the back. Tape can also be used as an edge protector for tool edges, or as a quick clamp for edge splinters that need to be glued down. It's also handy for marking locations for furniture hardware.

Established by your lender, an escrow account is a place to set aside a portion of your monthly mortgage payment to cover annual charges for homeowner's insurance, mortgage insurance (if applicable), and property taxes. Escrow accounts are a good idea because they assure money will always be available for these payments. If you use an escrow account to pay property taxes or homeowner's insurance, make sure you are not penalized for late payments since it is the lender's responsibility to make those payments.
There are several options when choosing a glazed door. For maximum light, consider a door with a large glass area. For privacy and security, opt for one or two small sections of glass, or glazing that is decorative and obscures the view into your house. If there is a possibility of ultraviolet (UV) damage to floors, rugs and furniture, consider choosing a glazing that resists UV rays.
