Front Door Furniture We Use

Only The Best furniture For Your Front Door

As your front door sees the worst of the weather, you need to fit the best door furniture there is. You want it to look great of course, but more importantly it has to stand the test of time.

We’ve been fitting front door furniture on our restorations and new doors for years now, we choose specific manufacturers, and everything is solid brass, whether it’s plated, simply lacquered or unlacquered.

Below is a selection of letter plates, knobs and other pieces of furniture that we have fitted over the years. You’ll see them in our photos, now buy your own, exactly the same.

Note: Clicking on any of these links and making a purchase will earn me a few pennies from the sellers as they are affiliate links (you don’t pay any more of course). Well, I have spent 17 years testing this stuff!

I’ve spent 18 years testing these knobs on nearly 300 front doors that we have made or restored. We know they’re good as we never have to replace or ‘service’ them.

Clicking on any of these products will take you to our supplier’s website where, if you purchase one, our supplier will reward us for the referral. You don’t pay any extra of course.

Fit The Best locks on Your Front Door

Did you know that your front door needs to have a Kitemarked lock active for your home insurance to cover a break-in?

We fit an Era Fortress Kitemarked deadlock as standard, which you can find below.

We also fit a Yale Traditional 77 night latch which looks beautiful on a Victorian or 1930s front door, also below, but if you want a Kitemarked night latch we believe the Era is a better option.

Of course, we think that the best locks you can fit to your front door are Banham. The L2000 and the M2002 pair perfectly and you can buy them so they both use the same key.

Have a look at all the locks that we use on a regular basis. We have used others in the past but even a couple of problems made us find the best.
