Virginie. Door Knob. December 01st , 2017.
Porcelain door knobs can look magnificent in the right setting; they are colourful and artistic and can really make a door shine. These aren`t as common in people for two reasons, firstly they tend to be a little more expensive than many of the other varieties on the market today, and secondly, they tend to break rather easily. Most people won`t mind spending a little extra cash on a door knob, but when they find out that these aren`t the most durable products they begin to look elsewhere.
If you are the kind of person who loves giving attention to detail, you know just how important a door knob can be to your door and the home in general. This is a part of the door most people will overlook, but one that can highly determine the efficiency of the door and the overall look of the same. There are so many types of door knobs you can choose from today and ceramic door knobs make some of the best options you can choose for your doors.
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.
Many experts agree that the greatest strength of these knobs also happen to be their greatest weakness. Brass is dulled by harmful oils found in our hands; this can give it a great antique look but also means it loses its shine. If this is a problem for you, you may have to reapply varnish to the handle each time this happens. Class door knobs are also rather fashionable these days, their only problem is that they won`t always look great in each house. In fact some people even consider them rather ostentatious in the wrong setting.
Its not just door knobs, but there are also handles that can replace a door knob to give you door a little different look. The sliding door handles have a more industrial look. If you are creating a home with a modern décor motif, these may be just the pieces you are looking for. An added bonus of the door handle door knob varieties is that for some they are easier to open. As many people age they have limited mobility in their hands from arthritis or other muscle reducing ailments. Sometimes grabbing a hold of a normal door knob and turning it is a difficult proposition. But with a sliding door handle, it`s much easier to open a door, just push the handle down and the door pops open. Even if they have limited hand mobility, these doors can be opened by just leaning on the handle to trigger the mechanism.
