3 Tips To Choose The Right Door Handles

Here are some tips for you to consider when completing any interior design with the right choice of door handles and door knobs.

Step 1: Consider The Design Of Your Home 

The first step you need to do when choosing a door handle is to assess the design or style that you want to achieve throughout your home. Your choice of door handle should complement your door and sit well with the overall appearance, look and feel of your home. For a modern apartment with contemporary design, minimalism such as a smooth door handle would work better with nickel or brass lighting and furniture whereas a country cottage is more likely to work best with a classic-design door knob, to add the rustic and vintage feel to the home.

Step 2: Choose Your Handle 

Another significant decision to make will be deciding whether to opt for door handles or door knobs. Door handles and door knobs come in a variety of styles and finishes that work with a wide range of designs, ranging from classic, traditional styles to more striking, contemporary ones. 

  • Door knobs 

Door knobs were one of the first inventions of door hardware and continue to be a popular choice for period properties. For a more discreet look, door knobs are ideal as they do not have to be limited to only period properties or classic designs; they can look fantastic in contemporary designed rooms. 

  • Door handles 

Door handles are a more modern choice since they have been in use since the early 1800s. With the addition of the lever, door handles are often easier to operate: the lever provides a better grip, ideal for any individual to use, particularly those with mobility issues. 

Ultimately, the final decision about which one to choose will come down to your personal preference and style choices. 

Step 3: Choose Your Finish 

After selecting what type of interior door handles to choose from, the next step is to decide your desired finish. With so many finishes available, you are sure to find the perfect door handle for your home, regardless of your decorating preference. Styling your interior doors with beautifully crafted door hardware in matte black, antique brass, bronze, platinum, or gold depending on the theme of your interior design will finish your home entirely. This adds the ultimate finesse, taking your home from beautiful, to chic and stylish very quickly. 


The amount of options for door handles can be overwhelming, but as an item that we couldn’t live without, it is worth taking time over consideration since door handles can deliver some real atmosphere to your interiors.
