Front Door Furniture
Welcoming people to your house can be a bit stressful; especially when those people are strangers. What your house looks like can say a lot about you, since we all put our personal touches on things, and people who are visiting pick up on these and get a sense of who you are. Having little touches like front door furniture can help add some personality, and style to any room.
You always see those gorgeous, classic, homes in the movies with the big doors and accompanying door knockers. But what most people don’t know is that sometimes, they’re more than a decoration, and certain designs can be meaningful. The earlier designs for door knockers were based on Greek mythology and were said to ward off evil spirits and witches. There were some styles of door knockers which were meant to bring good luck and encouragement to the family who lives there. They’d be shaped after positive signs like horseshoes, stars, suns, and even as flowers. Nowadays, door knockers are simply made to look modern, and as a decoration.
Add some traditional class to your front door with a hand-forged door knocker.
Letterplates And Letterboxes
When it comes to letter plates, these days there are more of a decoration than anything. Letterboxes’s as well in this day and time. However, they can give your home a timeless, antique look, which is very desirable. A letterbox, also known as a mailbox, started in Europe in the mid to late 19th century, after being used, and very popular in Paris from the late 18th century. They were used to pass along notes and letters when the recipient wasn’t home. Nowadays they once again mainly stand as a decoration, but can still come in handy for mail couriers when you aren’t around.
When it comes to your home, and the front door furniture, house numbers are by far the most important. Not only does it help people who are looking for your house, but they’re required by law to be located somewhere on your home. But this doesn’t mean you need to settle for those dull, typical numbers. From French-style metal to polished brass and nickel, there are so many different styles and looks to choose from. Find a set of number that will help attract people’s eye, and help make your house pop.
Front Door Pulls
Similar to the door knob, this unique knob will help you open any door with ease. There are many different designs and styles to choose from, which makes them perfect for personalizing or adding an extra flair to a room. Whether you pick a handle, knob, cylinder, or just a simple pull, any of these can add unique touches to your home’s entrance. They range from brass to nickel and forged iron, so there is a guaranteed look for everyone.
Doorbells And Buzzers
In 1817, a Scottish inventor named William Murdoch installed many of his inventions throughout his home in Birmingham. His best was a loud doorbell which worked using a piped system of compressed air. Nowadays it’s a little more advanced and has a few more bells and whistles. There are so many different styles, and even sounds, that you can choose from, so you find the perfect bell. After all, you're going to be the one who has to listen to it, why not spice it up?
