It was during the Victorian age that the doorstop evolved from a stray brick or rock to an art form. Using decorative "door-stoppers" not only kept doors from slamming in the wind, they also added an extra note of charm to the room. Even if you don't need to prop your door open you'll love the look of our heavyweight metal doorstops.
In addition to their practical use of holding doors open, metal door stops and porters can also serve as decorative elements in a room. They can add a touch of whimsy, sophistication, or elegance to a space, depending on their design and style.
Metal door stops and porters can also be used as paperweights, bookends, or even as decorative objects on a shelf or tabletop.
They can be a great conversation starter or simply add a unique and interesting element to a room.
Some metal door stops and porters are designed with specific themes in mind, such as animals, nautical motifs, or vintage-inspired designs. These can be particularly well-suited to rooms with a corresponding theme or décor style.
We have even seen where customers have used a door porter with handle to hold hand towels in their guest bath.
Overall, metal door stops and porters can be versatile and practical additions to a home or office space, while also adding a decorative touch.
