With such a huge range of products on the market, choosing door hardware for your home can be a tricky task and one is often rushed or overlooked. It’s important to take time and care in finding the right door handles as these details can totally change the overall aesthetic of a room. Whether you’re renovating or simply updating, no matter how big or small the project, you want to find the perfect products to enhance the look and feel of your property. Here are some things to consider when making your decision.


Handles or Knobs?

One of the first things you need to consider is whether you want door handles or door knobs, providing you don’t already have existing spindle holes in your door. Determine the function of the handle (passage, privacy, dummy or keyed entry) and consider who is going to be using the door and which is best for your house in terms of functionality as well as aesthetically. Keep in mind that in terms of practicality, children and the elderly may find knobs slightly harder to use than handles, which require no twisting motion of the wrist to open. On the other hand, knobs could be considered a safer option for children as they are less likely to catch clothing or hurt themselves.

What Style?

Do you prefer the timeless appeal of classic traditional designs or are you looking to create a more contemporary look? There are many eye catching designs in both traditional and modern styles to match the overall aesthetic of your home or room.

If you want to create a modern style, chose handles with clean lines to create a minimalistic look, with handles on rose giving a more simplistic appearance than on the traditional backplate, which are generally more decorative. Satin nickel, pewter, chrome and stainless steel tend to give interiors a more contemporary feel, and the silver tones work well with a variety of color schemes.

If Traditional, What Period?

Think about the period of your house to determine what sort of door furniture will make a good fit with that particular style. Through the Georgian era, black iron fittings were the popular material of choice and look great on rustic doors and in cottages. Nickel and chrome finishes came about in the Victorian era but shiny brass was the most common and makes quite a statement on a dark painted door. Rustic Edwardian houses would use a lot of brass, nickel chrome or iron, with polished nickel and chrome becoming popular during the Art Nouveau movement. Pinterest can be a useful platform to get inspiration from period door and fittings.

As well as the right period door furniture, you want to make the right selection for your interiors so consider your color schemes and the style of your furniture and match your new handles accordingly. As a general rule, choose door handles in colors which stand out against the color of the door so they don’t blend in and become lost. As for mixing metals, don’t be afraid to do so as long as they coordinate well with each other.

A big trend in architectural and interior design at the moment is the use of warm metallics such as bronze, copper, and particularly rose gold which is a great choice that accents both light and dark colours within a room. These hues work well with both traditional and modern décor and are experiencing a renaissance, adding a feeling of luxury and prestige to homes, hotels, and even office environments.

The Environment

For external door hardware, you want to consider the outdoor environment before making a choice on the finish. If you live in a coastal region for example, finishes such as matte black or satin chrome are good choices as they won’t tarnish as easily. In this case, opt for lacquered (uncoated) finishes.
