As much powerful of a statement and as much relieving slamming a door out of fury or aggression is; but in real life and ALL the time, it’s just annoying and so frustrating.
No one just wants to deal with that loud sound of that door slam; whether it be intentional or just because of some rusted hinges or just wind.
You can always get a guy and repair the door or you could just keep your door from slamming, yourself. Here’s how:
1. Inspect the Hinge
You probably want to start with the basics. Begin with inspecting the hinges. See if they are worn out from basic wear and tear or are rusted because of moisture or rain water. You’ll have to replace them if they are.
If the hinges are fine and your door is still slamming, see if the door is balanced and if the hinges are installed properly or not. If the door’s not balanced, you’ll have to replace the hinges and if the hinges are fine, check out the other options.
2. Foam Strips
If you don’t want to go the extra step to prevent your door from slamming and just want a make shift option, you could paste a foam strip to the edge of your door. Foam strip acts as the barrier between the door and the door frame and thus, prevents your door from slamming.
3. Door Closers
The most sure way of stopping your door from slamming is to get a door closer and install it on your door.

If you don’t want to go for something that affects your wallet, putting a rag or towel around the door would lessen the impact of the collision and wouldn’t produce a bam sound. You can also wrap a rubber band around the door handle which would produce a cushioning effect too.
This would be the best makeshift option and wouldn’t cost you anything and isn’t much of a task.
5. Pinch Guards
While these are made for preventing a finger getting pinched by a door when it’s being closed but these work great for preventing your doors getting slammed too.
The best part about pinch guards is that they can be easily removed if you decide to go for better options or if you want to take them out for maintenance of your door.
If you are also frustrated by your door getting slammed over and over again and the sound of the slam makes you want to just tear the door apart, these options are best for you as most of them are very budget friendly and won’t even require major efforts to relieve o
