20 Quirky Door Handles

From Eerie Hand-Shaped Knobs to Firearm Door Openers

— May 24, 2013 — Art & Design
If you're looking to add a unique and eye-catching appeal to your interior decor, then these quirky door handles will surely have your guests looking twice as they go to enter a room.

Traditionally door openers are spherical in shape, and often lack any type of visual appeal. Nowadays manufacturers are creatively outfitting these door accessories with out-of-the-ordinary designs in order to attract new buyers to the market. If given the choice between an ordinary knob and one that looks like an animal or skull head, I'm sure several people will opt for the latter for its original appeal.

From doorknobs shaped like hands to those that hold secret messages, these quirky door handles serve to turn an ordinary feature into something your guests will surely be talking about.
