Knobs with an antique look have also started appearing. They look exactly like wooden or metallic ones; however, they are made up of porcelain.

Wooden doors were the top most choice for most house owners as it added a regal feel to their home. These doors make a house look attractive. The wood grain has a lustrous shine that makes it stand out. You will need to carefully maintain the luster of the door by painting and varnishing the door regularly. However, these doors come with an expiry date. Depending on the type of wood used, these doors last for just about 25 to 35 years. They suffer from the general wear and tear and will no longer be as strong as they were earlier. They lose their sheen and tend to swell, bow, crack and warp. Due to the cracks and swelling, wooden doors are no longer able to provide your home with the much-needed insulation. These doors are very costly and pose a high risk of break-ins.
Earlier, porcelain was associated with pottery. Indeed the first use of this concept and ceramics was in the field of pottery, where kilns were used to fire (treat with intense heat) and re-fire objects of clay that had been treated with glaze. The simplicity and cheap nature of this entire operation has led to a considerable advancement of ceramics. Porcelain is a ceramic that is made by firing clay in the kiln, with the heat rising as high as 1,400 degrees Celsius. This extreme temperature, successfully leads to the formation of glass and tough mineral mullite on the surface of fired object. The final appearance is translucent, glassy, and tough. These characteristics make the object durable and also attractive.
