Okay, you want to update the door furniture in your home but don’t know where to start, what are you going to do? You could amble aimlessly around your local hardware store looking for inspiration or follow this guide and get to grips with the job from the start.
The next time you are choosing handles for interior doors pay close attention to these points first.
Style of handle
Start to explore the various styles of handles and you are greeted with a world of design. Some handles are traditional others are contemporary and suitable for a wealth of interior decor. Depending on your personal taste you can pretty much choose any style of handle you like. Whether you like the look of art deco handles, think Georgian handles are amazing, or simply have to have modern handles in your home, take your time choosing the style of handle you prefer.
Handle finishes are something else you really have to consider. This could be pewter, brass, chrome or stainless steel, depending on which look you prefer. Again, the finish of the handle can be dictated by the decor in your home. Some finishes look classical whereas others are trendy and funky.
What type of door design are you fitting the handles to? Are you painting the doors or leaving them in their natural wood state? How will the handles look when they have been fitted to the doors? Does the colour and finish of the handles clash with the shade of the door? These are all questions you need to ask before you fit new handles inside your property.
Fitting the handles
Are you going to fit the handles or will you need expert help in this area? Most handles are fairly easy to fit if they are replacement items. It can be a little trickier if you fitting new doors and have to drill or cut the wood to install the handles. Don’t take chances if you are unsure. It’s better to pay somebody to do this for you to prevent you damaging the door.
