Doorbell chimes are the component of a doorbell set that makes the audible noise inside of your home. These are installed in conjunction with a doorbell button to create a functional system that can easily
alert you of guests at the front door. Doorbell chimes and buttons are also available as parts of complete doorbell sets, but many people prefer to select the components
separately to give their spaces a customized and personal touch with decorative buttons and chime housings. The housing for a doorbell chime is typically
mounted somewhere central in the home where it can be easily heard in any room. Because of its central placement, the chime is usually quite visible, so
many doorbell chimes have very decorative aesthetics.
Some of the most popular designs of doorbell chimes feature definitively styled casings that can act almost as a piece of art in the room they are
installed in. They come in a range of materials and styles, including pieces with black, white, nickel, and even wood finishes. Modern doorbell chimes
frequently feature sleek finishes and clean looking details such as frosted glass and geometric designs, while vintage doorbell designs may include classic
chime tubes that physically produce a tone when rung, rather than playing a recorded chime.
When it comes to pure functionality, few models of chimes are as convenient as wireless doorbells. These fixtures are incredibly simple to install, and can
be easily adjusted or moved as needed. But whether you are searching for a hardwired chime or a wireless design, we carry options of both of these from a
number of reliable brands such as Byron Doorbells of Distinction, Heath Zenith, and Craftmade Doorbell. For more information on doorbell styles, types, and
