Does anybody else detest the sound of a door slamming shut? It can be startling when you’re at home alone, or very disruptive at the workplace. If you’re a college student living in a dorm, you probably do what most of your floormates do and leave your door open for optimum socializing. Door stops can be of great help in these cases, yet they are one of the most underrated household and office items around. Could it be that they are so small and boring, hardly anyone ever notices them? That would my guess, and guess what: there’s a new kind of door stop in town. Say hello to some slammin’ cool, funny, and creative door stops to keep your doors open and kiss the boring stuff goodbye!
