A vibrant yellow greets your guest with warmth and energy. Even during the monsoon blues and chilly winters, your curb will look bright and perked up.
The most simple, antique doorknob design involves the working of an axle or spindle, that is passing through the latch. Ideally, these designs have one side totally flat and some predefined length exposed on either side of the door. Identifying antique doorknobs is easy with proper observation. Usually they are attached on both sides of the spindle and secured via a mechanism that holds the set screws perpendicular to the flat side of the spindle. They can be viewed to great detail online, offline, and it is advisable to be aware of the design prior to purchase. There is a possibility of the knob losing traction with extensive use, but this can be repaired by replacing the set screw.
Small pulls that are attached to tables, drawers, and cupboards also tend to look very attractive. The simplicity of manufacturing enables manufacturers to produce pulls that are small and intricate, at a very low-cost. Unlike the smaller metallic ones, those made of porcelain are easier to clean as they do not have small and intricate depressions. Constant use of metallic pulls wears off the polish or electroplating, making its appearance quite dull. This demerit is overcome by porcelain as it never loses its charm.
The exact fitting or location of the doorknob varies according to the preference of the home owner. The location may vary in a few centimeters from the framework, the exact center of the door, and the outer top corner. The variations most of the time are observed to depend on the culture of the place, specific preference, and particular decorative style. The back-set or the distance from the edge to the center of the doorknob is defined with exact measurements and precision. Homeowners must keep in mind though that they can be difficult for children and elderly people to operate, and hence, the location of the doorknob should be decided on with a lot of consideration.
