Antique Door Knobs - Go Back In Time

Mar 29, 2008
For many people, their home is not only place to relax at the end of the day and escape their work environment; it's also a place to escape the world.

Imagine being able to get out of rush hour traffic, walk in the door and be whisked back into time, to the days of Queen Elizabeth, the Wild West or any other theme from the past.

These people put week's months, even years of work into creating an environment that takes to another place. Each piece of furniture is hand-picked for the fact that it is something that would have been around in that time period. When it comes to lighting this home, regular lights will not do. Instead, they will take lanterns and other items that look like they were from that time period and have them set up to give off a candle glow, even though they have been fitted to an electrical outlet.

The other accents and décor in the room will also be perfectly period to what they need, except one detail. Many of them forget to purchase antique door knobs to complete the feel of the space.

While antique door knobs may seem like small things to be put into a room, they really should be thought of as a big deal. They are like the accessories of the home décor world. Any fashionable woman will make sure she has the right accessories to go with a dress. Well, consider the rooms in your home the various dresses that you house wears. Without the right accessories, like antique door knobs, something just doesn't work right in the room.

When you are making a list of the antique door knobs you need to complete your home, don't just think about the ones on the major doors that come in and out of the room, but also any other doors in this space. Cabinets and other furniture pieces need antique door knobs as well.

So, where do you find the right antique door knobs for your home? This can be a little trickier. If you want the real deal, antique door knobs that are from those various points in history, you are going to need to start talking to antique dealers. Luckily, many of them keep bins of antique door knobs around just for cases like yours. If you don't want to have to drive from antique shop to antique shop you may want to instead do your shopping online. By searching for "antique door knobs" you will find more options than you know what to do with.

The other option is to go with reproduction antique door knobs. These look just like the real things, but are not as old. These are being made in the current day, to look like pieces from the past. These pieces are generally more affordable than real antique door knobs and they are also more readily available. Finding a matched set of antique door knobs will not be a problem with reproductions.

When creating an escape in your home, always remember the importance of the details. If you don't have antique door knobs, you may be quickly brought back to the modern day by this piece that is out of place.
