While small in size, a new doorbell button can have a big impact on the overall aesthetic of your front door. Small details, such as the doorbell can help
draw other design aspects together and contribute to a complete and polished look and improved curb appeal.
The plate around the doorbell is purely decorative, so choosing a new button can be left primarily to your personal taste. Although nearly all doorbell
plates are made of metal, they come in such a wide variety of designs and finishes that it’s easy to find one that is as expressive as you are. Whether
you’re looking for a compact and glossy button, an understated patina, or something more sculptural that makes a bold statement, themine.com has hundreds
of choices from reliable brands such as Craftmade, Waterwood Hardware, and Byron Doorbells of Distinction.
When looking to replace your doorbell button, it can be helpful to consider the set-up of the current button for ease of installation when the new one
arrives. One of the primary reasons that this is important is that doorbell buttons usually come in one of two depths: flush with the wall, or with a
protruding back that is about one inch deep. Before purchasing a new doorbell button, one should generally check to see which type is currently installed
in their home so that they can choose a new one that is compatible with the prior installation.
When it comes to actually installing the new piece, despite involving electrical connections, replacing a doorbell is quite simple as there are only two
wires involved. However, if wiring for a doorbell is an issue for you, you may also want to consider a wireless model. Wireless doorbells are equally
functional and have the advantage of an incredibly easy installation, usually requiring only a surface mount and to plug in the chime.
