In search of a (preferably non-hideous) doorbell

My husband and I have been doing some home improvements to our house this summer. One thing we want to update is the wall unit for our door bell located in the front hall. It seems like we have searched every hardware store in town and can't find anything even remotely nice. I think the doorbell is one of the only things that hasn't been updated to keep current with contemporary home decor. This is the sight at every hardware store so far - big, clunky and outdated. Second row, far right is the model currently in our hallway. The brass and wood combo just aren't going to cut it.

I even started searching online for something decent-looking, but to no avail as of yet. Any suggestions on where to find a clean, simple door bell design?

  1. Try Honeywell -

    In my opinion, the wall unit shouldn't attract attention. It should blend in with the wall or ceiling just like a smoke detector. But, if you're going for impact or artistry, you may want to look into getting something custom made to mount over top of something else. Good luck with the hunt!


I appreciate your comments and read every one!
