Virginie. Door Knob. November 18th , 2017.
There are people who collect all sorts of thing. From dolls to bottle caps, there is a collection for nearly every personality. Some people even get all worked up over the old knobs on doors, and have started collections out of antique door knobs. We`re not sure how this collection happened. Maybe is started when an old door was going to be thrown out and there was a nostalgic moment, and the knob was kept as a memory. Then that knob called out for more knobs, and a collecting frenzy was underway.
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.
Knobs come in a variety of materials and designs. Glass or solid brass door knobs are a great choice because they add a lot of extra detail to your door. As door knob sets age they can become dented or scratched so replacing them with high quality sets is important. Solid brass doorknobs sets are extremely durable and resistant to showing wear and tear. Brass is also available in a variety of finishes including polished brass, antique brass, satin nickel, polished chrome and oil rubbed bronze.
When we choose inside door knobs, we have to look properly at the room`s condition. This is important because if we want to use the knobs for our bedroom, we will have to ensure a locking system which could be unlocked from inside only and in the case of emergence, from the outside with a special key. There are privacy door knobs available for this purpose. Other important features for inside knobs are making the room appealing, using the right type of metal, and suitability for the user. This means when we purchase an inside door knob, we will have to purchase it by seeing its matching properties with the room. Metal, like brass, chrome or nickel, used for manufacturing the knob is also very important.
Compared to door knobs, door levers are beneficial in some different cases. This type of handle is efficient for gripping. They are often selected for homes where there are children, elderly people or disabled who are not able to grip handles with much force. Like door knobs, levers are also available in different materials, including brass or nickel door levers. Along with this advantage, companies have added different structures on levers to give them additional appeal.
