So, you’ve just bought a beautiful door from Doorsan and now you want something to keep it open. This sounds like a search for a practical item, however this is an opportunity for you to show off a bit of your personality and to complement your home interior scheme. After spending time selecting a stylish door design, you won’t want to accessorise with anything that doesn’t match up to your high standards.
I think there are two main options. One is the slanted edge door wedge and the other is a heavy bulky object - both of which will keep your door open. There is a huge range of options for doorstops of both varieties. Also small door stops to fix to your floor or skirting board are very useful to protect your walls from damage caused by door handle (speak to Doorsan sales team for assistance with purchasing these).
There are ranges of sports related designs such as heavy balls from the sport of your preference, which tend to be made from wood. If you have a nautical theme in your home there are a variety of boat themed designs. There are cast iron doorstops available in a variety of designs, which may be suited to a traditional style door. If you have a favourite animal then I am sure you will be able to find a doorstop that reflects your chosen animal. There are wide ranges of doorstops made from fabric, such as wool or cotton, which contain weighted beans or sand.
A doorstop would be a good gift for someone who has recently moved house or someone who is tricky to buy for. It is the kind of item that many of us need but never get around to buying. How many times have you seen a fire extinguisher or phone book being used where a stylish or personal doorstop would perform the task and look pretty at the same time?
If you wish to grace your door with a doorstop then take a good look around and choose one that reflects your personal style and enhances your door.
