Contemporary Vs Traditional Door Knockers

When it comes to adding new door knockers to your home, there are a variety of things to consider. Material, style and cost all important; whilst it’s almost impossible to make the right calls without focusing on whether you want your new door fixtures to be traditional or contemporary.

This notion will form the key basis of the decisions that you make, as you don’t want any new purchases to clash with your existing property. If you’re happy with your home’s wider design scheme and just want to add new door knockers, then make sure you match like with like.

Or, if you’re starting from scratch and completely renovating your home, then spend some time deciding whether you want to go down the contemporary or traditional route. Once you’ve done your research, the following advice will help you with the path you end up going down.

Traditional Door KnockersHeavy set traditional door knockers

Here at Handsome Handles, we have a number of traditional door knocker designs; influenced by famous pieces throughout history. Lion’s heads, giant hands and Georgian-infused selections are just examples of the many potential products that are available to you with us; giving you the freedom you need when it comes to any purchases.

As well as the sculpted appearance of any piece you choose, what you’ll often find yourself studying most is the materials used to make them. Black iron and antique brass are both giveaways for popular traditional door knockers.

Contemporary Door Knockers

A common feature of contemporary properties is that they can be noticeably striking in their design. That pristine, stylised style can be beautifully refreshing, so it’s essential that it’s not spoilt through lack of consideration for finishing touches like the door knockers.

To give yourself the best chance of successfully integrating any new door furniture, you’d be wise to look into products made from materials such as polished chrome and satin nickel. These are specifically-tailored for modern properties and are sure to have the desired effect.
