What does your door knob say about you?
In fact, when I first received a press release from Weiser Lock saying that the hardware on your door says a lot about your personality, I couldn't even recall what my door knobs looked like!
According to the release, consumers are looking for a door knob that looks good, suits their taste, and fits their personality.
And, apparently, our choice actually reveals a lot about the kind of people we are — from our style to our likes and dislikes. While I'm not sure if you can really glean that much from your choice of door knob, Weiser's descriptions are certainly entertaining!
Here's what your door knob says about you, according to the folks at Weiser:
Venetian Bronze: A nostalgic homeowner, this person chooses a palette of warm rose and cream colours and likely has a soft spot for classic Victorian decor. This person is conscientious, dependable, steady and conservative. They enjoy "classical music, fine dining, designer clothes and trips to Rome."
Satin Stainless Steel: This person likes clean, modern looks and their home is simple, bright and airy, likely with lots of windows and open spaces. This homeowner is innocent, pure and naive. As for their personal life, they're probably into alternative or indie rock, wear jeans with a t-shirt, vacation on the beach and chow down on sushi.
Rustic Pewter: This homeowner prefers an average home in the burbs to a modern mansion. This person "often has good business sense but tends to work too much." They like classic rock, sporting events, cheeseburgers and camping trips.
Iron Black: This homeowner likes a mysterious feel and leans toward a dignified and impressive look without being showy. In their personal life, they likely enjoy "emo music, visiting Eastern bloc countries, wearing all black wardrobes and eating at ethnic restaurants."
Bright Brass: The homeowner who chooses bright brass has a sunny personality and a great sense of humour. Their hobbies include "visiting glitzy Las Vegas, wearing bright clothing and accessories, listening to pop music and dining at chain restaurants."
As a renter, I didn't choose my satin silver knobs, but given the choice, I probably would have picked something similar. And the description is moderately apt — I have been known to chow down on sushi while wearing jeans and a t-shirt and listening to indie rock. Then again, I suspect this may describe a lot of my friends and neighbours, regardless of their choice of hardware ...
