Antique doorknobs are made of different material. However, the replicates are now made of materials that are known to spread infection on contact like glass, porcelain, and aluminum. At the same time, there are some of the modern materials that actually display self disinfectant features, like replicate antique doorknobs made of brass and silver that are known to be poisonous to quite a few germs! This is possible due to the oligodynamic effect that is a characteristic of these metals. The self disinfecting doorhandles are essential in clinics and hospitals. They are also particularly useful in environment catering to the care of infants and toddlers, like day care center buildings.
They can be installed anywhere in the house, be it in your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, laundry room or even for your closet. These days, they are becoming extremely popular for their modern look and functionality. They are translucent and slide easily, making them appropriate for a closet. They look equally good as room dividers. So if you have a large bedroom, install these to make space for a small changing room or a study in it. For those of you who want to give a clean look to their kitchen, installing such cabinet doors is another good idea. You can even create your own designs with the help of a frosting spray, which can be easily purchased at any home supply store.
There are plenty of new and alternate hardware options available for kitchen cabinets these days. Sliding doors is one of them. In a this system, two doors of the cabinet move vertically up and down at the same time. It looks very nice in top mounted cabinets and provides a beautiful alternative to pull-out doors. Another new concept is to install fluorescent light tubes inside your cabinets, especially if the doors of your kitchen cabinet are made of glass. Apart from the fact that you will find it easier to find everything in your cabinet, the glow of the light will make your cabinets look very attractive.
A great option to be considered while working on the design of main doors is pilaster. Using pilaster for trim is sure to give a grand touch to the entrance. Opt for the fluted pilaster or paneled pilaster which will help in beautifying your door frame as never before. You can have it wide or keep it narrow, depending upon size and design of the door. Making the pilasters more attractive is not a tough task with fan inserts or other designer blocks. These can be added to the center of top horizontal trim line and even at each corner of trim molding. This is one of the most visually appealing exterior trims which plays up the beauty of the main door of your house.
