DIY decorators and professional designers’ creations are more aligned than ever before and the humble glass door knob is symbol of this relationship.
Our increased awareness of and exposure to expert and industry opinions, trends and marketing messages as media consumers on an unprecedented scale have helped fuel demand for a more diverse range of home and garden products which we now have greater access to.
The rise in popularity of the glass door knob represents a greater and faster awareness among homeowners of the very latest design trends as well as a new spirit of daring that’s reminiscent of confident design professionals.
“Many of the latest design trends allow you to mix and match to reach your individual version of a particular style. The focus is on selecting lots of interesting, eye-catching, high impact pieces within the room. Glass door knobs fit the bill perfectly and that’s why they’re so popular now” says James Gumersell of simplydoorhandles.co.uk
“They’re opulent but affordable, they’re chic and different and yet they’re actually very strong and durable – a great buy on many levels.”
Although highly decorative and elegant, modern glass door knobs are actually a world away from their Victorian ancestors. The optical grade glass in the latest versions brings new levels of clarity and strength and a shiny chrome plated base means no scratches or corrosion discoloration.
The old problem of the glass separating from the base has been solved thanks to a thoroughly modern ultra violet cured solid adhesive bond that’s stronger than the glass itself! Classic smooth or faceted clear glass door knobs have now been joined by coloured and frosted options.
The quality and strength of today’s glass door knobs means that there is a 10 year guarantee. Cabinet versions are also available so that we can all have a bit of affordable chic in any room that any professional interior designer would approve of.
