Your exterior doors are the greeting portal for your visitors. Everything you choose, from the paint color to the trim, even down to the doorknob is a way to make your style known. There are so many fabulous styles of doorknobs and handles to choose from, and you can really personalize them to match your home.
What you choose is a personal choice, but keep in mind not only overall style but the finish as well. Do you want polished brass, antiqued bronze, or something that looks like hammered iron? Each one gives a different look and vibe, so be sure and choose what works for your front door decor. We've found ten gorgeous exterior door knobs for you from Walmart's website.
1. Basic Stainless Steel Doorknob And Deadbolt Set
One consideration for your door is whether or not you want just a door lock or if you want a door lock and matching deadbolt. Many doorknobs will come in a set with a matching deadbolt. If not, you can often buy a matching deadbolt as a separate item.
This set is a fairly basic brushed stainless set. It fits standard doors 1 3/8"- 1 3/4" thick. They are keyed identically so one key will open both locks. They're super easy to install (on a door with pre-drilled insets), requiring only a Phillips head screwdriver.
2. Honeywell Electronic Entry Door Lock
This little beauty from Honeywell allows you to open your door with either a key or a code. It's perfect for VRBO types or if you just hate carrying a key. This lock comes in four finishes: antique brass, bronze, polished brass, and nickel.
It has 50 programmable user codes and an alarm that sounds if 4 incorrect codes are punched in. It requires four AA batteries for the code lock to work, so keep that in mind and maybe have a battery changing schedule so you're never left with dead ones.

Available in antiqued brass, aged bronze, polished brass, and a multicolor option, it's easily installed and fits most regular doors.
