Door knobs are most common in North America.
Door handles are most common in Europe.

I have lived in both places.
I grew up in homes with door handles, but I have lived my adult life in homes with door knobs.
Now I prefer door knobs, and wouldn't want to change.

Why do you prefer door knobs?

Shirt sleeves will sometime catch on door handles.
It is also easier to get a bruise if you bump into a door handle.
Door knobs are more benign in this regard.

People who have doors generally care.

Well I had never even considered it before this thread-- so I guess I don't care.

And vf, before you ask, yes I have doors. All of my doors have knobs, but in my mother's house the French doors all have brass handles and the two wooden entrance doors have matching brass knobs.

In an unrelated story, they both work to open the door successfully.

Some of my door have neither knobs nor handles. They have a length of knotted rope fished through the hole where the knob would be, which serves as the handle.
