Top 10 Most Decorative Doorbell Chime Covers & Buttons

DH845_InUse_loResYour doorbell can say a lot about you, so why not exercise a little creativity? Why not choose a decorative doorbell chime cover and button that suits your personality for your home or your business? Why not get a chime that is really “you”?

By choosing the right doorbell style, you can create a positive first impression. To spruce up the exterior of your home, choose a button with an elegant style. For indoors, choose stylish covers designed to hide the inner workings of the doorbell mechanism – for both hard-wired and wireless models.

Stylish Doorbells Combine Look and Sound for a Memorable First Impression

Today, we will focus mainly on the appearance of the chime itself. When you choose just the right decorative cover and button for your wired or wireless doorbell, you can make your chime look as good as it sounds. This will be just another detail that makes your home, office or retail store a joy to visit.

What’s Wrong with a Plain White Doorbell? Why Bother with Fancy buttons?

Many people are satisfied with a standard button or chime cover – and this works great for them. You see a lot of plain white buttons when you visit the homes of friends and local businesses. Perhaps these individuals aren’t aware of the level of style you can achieve by choosing the right touch. That’s not to say that streamlined, functional white or beige doorbell buttons and chime covers are bad.

If you’ve got a plain white button, there’s one bit of “dress up” you might be interested in your options. Consider installing a lighted button to help visitors see where to press in the evening and to attract their attention during the day. (You’ll avoid missing those folks who knock, not realizing that you have a doorbell.) Lighted buttons work with hard-wired doorbells and they provide a nice convenience feature for your guests, family, friends or customers. Weather-resistance is another feature to look for if your door has no overhang or covered porch. Weather resistant doorbells are available in wired and wireless models.

Decorative Doorbell Chime Covers Dress Up Your Home or Business

When you take advantage of all the unique designs in buttons – and covers – available today, you can get a system that perfectly fits the style of your home or building. Do you have a Craftsman style home or a Spanish abode with white stucco and a tile roof? You can find a decorative chime to match! Are you living in a brownstone? Is your home or building a classic design from the 20s or 30s? Or is your home a basic, no-frills design that you’d like to add some uniqueness to? You can accomplish all these things with a carefully chosen decorative door chime cover and button.
