Choosing the right set of doors for your home can make an enormous impact on both the thermal-efficiency and the way it looks. And, of course, the handle that your door is equipped with will make a major impact on both aesthetics and functionality. In this section of the site, you’ll find a raft of different handles, each of which will subtly (and sometimes not-so-subtly) influence both the looks and efficacy of your door.
Among the items here you’ll find traditional knob-style handles of the sort that are favoured in the states, and the more contemporary lever-style design. Though the latter are undoubtedly the easier to use, the former still offer a charm that makes them beloved of many homeowners. Of course, within these broad categories there exists quite a lot of diversity – with some lever handles being curved and elaborate, and others being simpler and more brutish. Naturally, the sort you prefer will depend on your personal taste.
The handles you see here come in two different materials – there are chrome ones, and the more traditional brass variety. You’ll also have a choice of different finishes – including satin, polish, mixed – and no finish at all, for instances where you’d prefer to apply your own.
Your choice of material will depend to a large extent on the surrounding room. If you’re shopping for a door handle for your Victorian-style external door, then you might find that a brass handle that’s modelled after the period might make a better match than a more contemporary chrome one. If, on the other hand, you’re shopping for a handles for your modern internal doors, then a chrome handle might fit the bill admirably.
As well as considering the look of the surrounding décor, we should also be sure to remember the function that we’ll want to handle to perform. For example, if you’re shopping for a room where privacy is desirable or essential, like a bathroom or guest bedroom, then you should be sure to select a handle that comes equipped with a bathroom lock, so that it can be locked from the inside. Of course, if you’re shopping for an exterior door, you might want a handle that comes equipped with a keyhole – so be sure that you pick one!
You can be assured that all the handles you see here contain everything you need to fit the handle to your door, including a latch, a keep, a set of screws and a set of three hinges that match the handle. That way, you won’t have to take an impromptu trip to your local hardware shop, thus incurring unforeseen costs.
