Virginie. Door Knob. November 18th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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.
