Door stops protect walls and paintwork from being damaged each time entranceways are opened. They are often fitted with rubber ends, which prevent marks, dents or scrapes on both the wall and the door. In addition to preserving decor, they help to make a more peaceful environment by reducing the impact and noise of a slammed door. Door stops can be wall mounted or installed in line with the bottom of the entrance, depending on the positioning of the frame, and come in a variety of sizes . Both classic and up-to-date styles are available, from oval to sprung, so the best match can be found for the style of a room.
