Choosing a Doorknob


Doorknobs are not only functional, but decorative as well.

While many people think a doorknob is purely functional, this piece of hardware also adds a stylish element to your home and door. Doorknobs can add a finishing touch to any door to your home and help you personalize an otherwise bland element. But how do you choose a doorknob for your home? Read on to find out.

Type of Doorknobs

The first decision you will have to make when choosing a doorknob for your home is the type. There are a few different types of doorknobs you can choose from. From the lever-style knob to the oval or round knob, there are many different options. Lever knobs are perfect for the older members of your family while a round or oval knob is the traditional style for your home.


While a doorknob serves as a functional piece of hardware, it can also add a decorative element to your door. If you want a simple doorknob, take a look at a simple rounded doorknob. This knob is the classic style that will not draw too much attention to your hardware. But if you want more flair, you should consider a unique egg or oval shaped knob. This will give your door a more modern look and feel. If you want to do even more modern, you should consider a lever-style knob for your door. With a sleek, modern look, this doorknob style will look stunning on your door. But not all levers and knobs are plain, choose a face plate with a decorative rosette, scroll work, or geometric patterns on it for more detail.


Once you know what kind of doorknob you want and the style, the final thing for you to look at is the finishing options. From brass to black, there are many different finish options for you to choose from. It is important for you to choose a finish that will match the other hardware like your door hinges and locks.

Choosing your doorknob doesn’t have to be stressful. You should choose something that will accent your nice front door and allow you to perfectly design your home. For more information on choosing a doorknob for your home, call WalterWorks Hardware today!
