Door knockers around the world

Door knockers around the world

We’re all very familiar to the knock, knock sound of a door knocker. Whether it’s the postman with that dress you might have ordered in the sales last minute (no judging!) or your friends coming to visit or the worse knock, knock of them all – door to door salesmen trying to sell you that really good product that you don’t really need (but I won’t go there today).

Let’s not get off track here. Door knockers are not only functional but highly ornamental, they are the perfect way to accessorise your front door whilst showing off a bit of your own style and personality.

Door knockers are also very important to give a first great impression of your home to your guests. It may be a bit difficult to fit sometimes, but you can always count on a local locksmith to help you out in case of emergency.
