The finish should match the rest of the hardware. Door knockers not only come in many finishes they are available in many types of metal. The most stable metal and probably the most common is brass. Brass is easy to machine and cast into shapes. It polishes into a bright gold like finish or satins easily and is easy to maintain. Brass also electroplates readily. This allows it to be nickel or copper plated to simulate pewter and bronze finishes. Because brass is non ferrous it will not rust. It will tarnish though for this reason a good lacquer finish is needed or your purchase will look terrible in a very short time.

This will give you a frame of reference for what size you would like to use. A knocker is a wonderful way to add new beauty to any door. Replace other old and worn hardware with beautiful replacements pieces including the door knob deadbolt kick plate doorbell and mail slot. A complete entryway set can be created with a common theme or finish. Ask questions and search for high quality materials to ensure durability. The entryway of the home is the most prominent feature guests and homeowners will see and a worthwhile investment. Door knocker is not only a beautiful accessory on the front gate but also serves as a reflection of to the visitors.

The urn door knocker is versatile and looks good on most modern day homes. It possesses a universal appeal that seems to fit in nicely with most architecture. It is available in many sizes varying from a small 4" height or less to very large 12" high. The size selection would be determined by the doorway that the door knocker is to be mounted on and the budget allowed. Some urn door knockers incorporate eye viewers as these fit in this design well. The eye viewer may be situated at the approximate center of the door knocker or it might be located at the top. When at the top the eye viewer usually replaces the upper installation hardware. The addition of the eye viewer provides the additional safety factor of being able to see who is at your door.
