Door Knockers vs Doorbells
You might be trying to decide between a new door knocker or doorbell, let’s talk about the pros and cons of each. A door bell is a great option if you have a large house and where you often are in the house is far from the front door, you can select many different chimes to connect to your door bell and you will be able to hear it loudly through the house, the downside is that for a stunning door bell you will require it to be installed by an electrician. If you opt for a door knocker, they are often not quite as loud, particularly if used by someone who is light handed. The pros of a door knocker that it is cheaper to install as you can do it yourself, it will also last a lifetime as there is nothing that can go wrong with any wiring. For easy installation that doesn’t require an electrician, you could also consider purchasing a manual bell such as a turn bell or a ships bell with rope.
