When it comes to your front door, first impressions count. Have you ever knocked on the door of a property and surveyed your surroundings as you wait for the door to be answered? What have you noticed first? The colour of their door, the size of the garden, or maybe you noticed the shape and size of the knocker that you have just used.
There are many unusual door knockers, door handles and door knobs on the market today and choosing the right one to compliment your front door can be a struggle. After all, it may be one of the first things that a visitor sees, and you want to make an impact! Here are a couple of great examples of unique door knobs for you to consider.
Unusual Hand Door Knocker in Black Iron
If you are looking for a door knocker that is truly unique and slightly unusual, why not consider this fabulous door knocker in the shape of a hand. Supposedly common in Prague, hand shaped door knockers are rumoured to represent the Hand of Fatima, a talisman to protect a house from evil. There are also theories relating to doors having two knockers, one of a male and one of a female hand, so that the residents of the house knew the gender of the visitor.
Carlisle Brass Lion Head Door Handle
Another unusual external door handle is this fabulous lion head door knocker from Carlisle Brass. Lion head door knockers are fairly common in the UK, where the lion is considered a national symbol. Lion head door knockers actually date back to ancient Greece and are thought to represent power and strength. They can also be thought of as guardians of a building, and what could be better to guard your home than a lion?!
