Do you remember the doorknobs of yesteryear? They were not always the smooth brass that we see today; they were stylish and beautiful. The shiny porcelain would stand out against any shade of wood.
Although there was once a long process to creating and then firing porcelain, it is now simpler and less expensive to do so. Unfortunately, most homeowners are use to the standard brass doorknob and overlook the beauty found in the porcelain. However, if you want to make some simple changes to your current decor, there is nothing more appealing to the eye then porcelain. It is never dull or difficult to blend with your current decor. It is easy to join a look with a simple doorknob.
There are several different types of porcelain doorknobs to choose from. Below is a brief summary of each one and how you can tie them into your current decor.
These doorknobs were once very popular in the past. Today, they are becoming popular again.

If you are using a theme in your room, you may find a doorknob to go along with that theme. Place the white porcelain doorknobs on the exterior doors as well as the interior.
