Door knockers have been used to symbolize everything from hospitality to good luck to warding off bad spirits. With recent ironmongery technology, more iconic door knockers can be made by twisting the metal into intricate designs. Some door knockers also come with a viewer lens for home safety or security. With all these new design options available, it would seem that people would flock to metalworkers to design a variety of different door knockers for their homes, but most modern houses prefer the classical ring knocker or crescent moon knocker found in hardware stores or online.
Always look back twice when pulling out of the garage. Even before shifting the car into reverse, look behind you. Then look again to ensure that the door has fully opened before proceeding. Purchase a garage door with a motion sensor. Here is a lesson many homeowners learn the hard way – with or without new drivers in the house. Like a watchful mother/daughter, a sensor detects trouble; it senses movement around the door and rolls it right back up to prevent an accident.
The beauty of steel is that you can use it in whichever way you want. In recent years, doors were made with a steel frame but designers have become creative to mould the metal into shapes that curve. The shapes look gorgeous when placed against glass and work well with grey doors. Historically, people of nobility would show off their status by using custom metal designs.
