Virginie. Door Knob. December 05th , 2017.
The benefits of the antique glass knobs for doors are as many as there are door types! They instantly add a rustic and aged appeal to the door. In fact, fit one a door that is yet to be painted and upgraded and you have a masterpiece! For those who love the Victorian and Gregorian era decor, the antique glass door knobs are a must-have. They can be fitted on the main door of the home or office or just about any enclosure that is designed for safekeeping and privacy.
You can even find designer door knobs these days, if you are all about fashion. Some are hand made of stone, glass and other materials. If you want to go classy, glass door knobs are very beautiful. They can look like gems shining from a treasure hold if they are put in the right room with the right lighting. One thing to note about glass door knobs is that, they are not recommended for the outside doors to your home, as they are more fragile than other knobs and may not react well to the changes in temperatures. They also will be getting a lot more wear and tear on an outside door and may not be strong enough to handle it.
Compared to door knobs, door levers are beneficial in some different cases. This type of handle is efficient for gripping. They are often selected for homes where there are children, elderly people or disabled who are not able to grip handles with much force. Like door knobs, levers are also available in different materials, including brass or nickel door levers. Along with this advantage, companies have added different structures on levers to give them additional appeal.
Although there are a number of glass knob manufacturers that have come out with several replicas of the Victorian glass door knobs, they haven`t been able to match the quality, precision, and detail of antique glass knobs. Although brass, chrome, and steel knobs look good on doors they tend to lose their sheen and color due to the weather conditions. Moreover the constant touch of sweaty or wet hands on these door knobs can make them look drab. Antique glass door knobs are durable and are prone to different weather conditions.
Interior rooms are different from exterior ones in both purpose and facility. For example, exterior doors are exposed to the outside which makes it essential for them to be an attractive bright color to magnetize other`s focus. Again they are more often reached for by people from the outside. So, they need to have a proper security system to maintain safety measures of the house. This is why manufacturers design exterior door knobs differently. However, inside lever knobs are free from these concerns.
