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.
As time went on, styles of knobs came and went, and it was only in more modern times that the door knobs we used seemed to become a bit more boring, and just looked at as things that are meant to open a door. It`s possible the boring state of today`s door knobs is what caused many hardware manufacturers to go back in time and start lines of pieces that are reproductions of those fascinating antique door knobs. Those reproductions have become a major income for those companies as people continually look for new ways to dress up their home.
Porcelain door knobs are perfect pieces of door hardware. They can add a touch of style and elegance to your doors. These door knobs can be installed quickly and easily on any type of door. Just like other door knobs, porcelain knobs are also available for different purposes like entrance, passage, privacy, and dummy. The entrance porcelain door knobs are fully functional with locks and latches. Privacy and passage sets are used on bathroom and bedroom doors. Porcelain dummy knobs make a perfect addition for your cupboards and closets.
If you think about it, the door knob began the whole movement towards security and safety in the home. Before the door knob, doors would just push open when someone wanted to get inside or go out. Then along came the door knob. It was a great way to keep a door from opening accidentally. A door knob also offered a side benefit of keeping the elements out of the house. Imagine how things would be in a storm without a door knob. Rain and wind would rush in every time.
