Virginie. Door Knob. December 04th , 2017.
Brass door knobs have been around for a very long time, most traditional homes feature them and they are etched in people`s mind as very traditional. Although they used to be rather expensive, their prices have fallen quite dramatically in recent years, so much so that they are now considered one of the cheapest solutions on the market today. These door knobs are rather durable and are ideal for use on door which needs to be opened and closed often.
Privacy knobs can be locked from the inside. These are used as interior door levers for rooms like bathrooms and bedrooms. For major entry areas like front doors and garage doors, keyed entry knobs are perfect because of its key mechanism specially created for exterior door hardware. You will see less locking mechanisms on passage knobs as these are not made for security. In the case of dummy knobs, only decorative purposes are considered. Lastly, commercial door devices are used for more organized residential purposes.
Homes of celebs and models flaunt the antique glass door knobs all the time. These knobs make special appearances on the celluloid too. They now come in various styles and colors to add to their mystic appeal a beautiful story. The antique glass knobs can be shopped for in deep colors such as crimson red and emerald green, to more earthy shades of mauve, pink and tan/brown. The crafted design options range from animals such as eagles, lions and dragons to geometric shapes such as ovals, circles and diamond points. They give any door certain uniqueness and a defined star burst effect. The knobs are characterized impressively by an age that is timeless in appeal.
Dark door knobs are also applicable with partial overlay door style. The covered area of the cabinet is what you call the overlay part while the exposed part is the reveal area. Door style with partial overlay has a 1-inch of reveal area. Among all other types of designs this is the most common style. Another design is the full overlay door. This style, on the other hand, uses the whole reveal area. This is commonly found in frameless cabinets but there are also those found with framed cabinets. The hinges for this style is covered and there is still need for knobs.
Interior door knobs are available in four primary styles; privacy, passage, double dummy and single dummy. Privacy and passage knobs turn and operate a latch mechanism - the difference is privacy style knobs have a push pin lock (these are generally used on bathrooms or bedrooms). Single dummy and double dummy knobs do not turn or operate a latch mechanism - a single dummy knob is one knob on the exterior side of the door while a double dummy is a knob on either side of one door. Note: Most double dummy knobs cannot be used on two separate doors.
