Door accessories have multiplied in the last few years and people have started to be more focused on safety rather than looks. Not only does the front door provide protection from the outside world, it also gives visitors the chance to get an impression of who lives in the house, depending on the door design. That is why it is important that the front door serves both purposes, to be strong enough to protect the private home and to be stylish or well designed, to give out a positive vibe. There are many front door hardware choices that you can select from, in order to make the front door look better and be sturdier. Home owners should definitely find the perfect front door hardware with the perfect balance between purpose and design.
Some simple door viewers are easy to find however, door hardware should be selected depending on one’s overall home design. You can not have a very modern looking item attached to your door, when the rest of your home is lacking in design or style. It just looks out of focus and sometimes borders on tackiness. For people whose tastes are more into refined, vintage items and whose houses are more traditional looking than modern, the Mortise Cylinder lock set, is the perfect accessory for their front door.
Created by Acorn Manufacturing, this set features metal materials in a matte black finish. The design is very simple and tasteful and would remind someone of door locks found in old English homes. The Entrance Door Mortise lock sets, on the other hand, have a bit more charm and is more traditional than the previous accessory. This is because of the inverted heart or rose that can be installed. It is where the lock is found. The knob is a simple, metal knob with an oval design. Both the rose and knob are made of metal in matte black finish.
As far as safety goes, you can always choose the Yale electronic door viewer which is by far considered to be one of the best front door accessories. Have a camera mounted on your door and look through an LED 6 inch screen to find out who, or what, is creeping in front of your door. The combination between beauty and safety is sometimes hard to match however these items have the success of pulling it off. If you want a door that looks good and is also safe, then you know what to buy.
