There are a number of door knobs of different shapes and sizes made for doors. Door knobs made from polished brass and chrome are very popular today but somehow most of them fail to showcase the elegance seen among antique glass door knobs.
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. 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.

For a more subdued look the clear glass looks elegant and sophisticated when placed within any colour scheme. Turning door knobs are suitable for any door which requires a turning motion to open. They can replace traditional handles and will fit into most standard fixings. They are generally pet safe and can be more child-safe as there is no handle for children or pets to pull on. They are also safer for general use as clothing or other items may catch on handles particularly when carrying awkward objects or piles of laundry. Turning door knobs are a smart choice for families and single people or couples alike. They are over all safer more stylish and can brighten up any room. The right style will compliment your decor and add that final finishing touch to all your hard work.
