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.

Be aware that this very often is not the case. Remember that if your door knocker is solid brass is may be easier to simply refinish the existing one. Choosing a chrome door knocker for your home should be a personal experience. Your taste and personal preference must reflect on the style and design of your preferred door knockers. Always remember that knockers is the most beautiful and prominent pieces found in every homes and could create a different look in your entryway. Sometimes it also give hints to your visitors if what are they going to expect inside.

Some are embellished with flower patterns while others have leaves and feathers. Among my personal favorites being an engraver is the old standard swirling vine pattern that generally seems to fit the urn door knocker form well. I have even come across them adorned with cherubs and angels.
