Virginie. Door Knob. December 05th , 2017.
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.
The color of the door knob is an essential when choosing one for the cabinet doors. The style and the design is another thing to be considered. Aside from these, you should also consider the impact that they will have when you combine both. The design and the knob make look good together but the knob does not function well, then it will still be useless. Whatever the color, whether it is the light or dark door knobs that are installed, as long as with the use of it the cabinet will be opened easily is the key.
To keep the original look and finish, porcelain door knobs must be dusted regularly. They can be cleaned using warm soapy water.

The price of door knobs varies from model to model. They usually range from $10 and $100 per knob. Great discounts are available when purchased online.
Coming to the color, antique glass door knobs look best in their original transparency. But if you want to opt for those that have a little bit of color added to them, then you should choose those which have the capability of matching with almost any color combination, such as light pink, light yellow, purple or orange. One thing to keep in mind while installing glass door knobs is not to buy these knobs for door sides that lie outside your home and are exposed to the atmosphere. This is because glass tends to lose its perfection when exposed to direct sunlight or rainfall and so this will make your home décor look very absurd. For these doors, use metal ones that don`t lose their shine even in extreme conditions.
