The finish it brings is almost warm in appearance and is ideal for adding an understated contemporary touch.

Black Antique

Suitable for traditional homes with doors made from rugged woods such as oak, black antique resonates with property design from previous centuries and is perfect for adding real character to any interior.


Lightly-varnished wood is perfect to match bronze door handles to; as the tone of the wood helps to highlight their quality.

Kitchen Door Handles

With your kitchen handles, you may want to consider deciding on the ones that you want before you begin to install any new furniture. Ensuring that these items tie in to the overall scheme of the room is essential and they may need to match pull handles already built in to new furniture pieces that you’re adding. Polished chrome door furniture may be a good match to a material such as parapan; which is commonly used in modern kitchen design.

Study Handles

When it comes to the modernisation of any office or study, the choices are endless. For the furniture, you may want to incorporate modern units made from light beech or pine. Or, alternatively, you may feel that monochrome desks and cabinets may be better suited. If you choose the wooden option, then polished Carlisle brass door handles can add a contemporary touch with a traditional spin.

Why Chrome Door Handles Can Be Beneficial for Your Home- Thursday, July 10, 2014

chrome door handlesWhen it comes to home improvements, it is about making the choices that best allow you to enhance your home. Understanding how to successfully integrate styles of interior design is a skill, and it pays to research this properly.

Particularly for modern homes; chrome door handles can help you to achieve that perfect finishing touch; that can really make your home stand out as a beacon of design excellence. Whether on rose or backplate; Handsome Handles stock an entirety of products that will ensure you are able to find the right product for you.

Towards the latter end of the 1990’s; chrome door handles became a significant part of a shift towards more contemporary interior design. The cool, silver tones of the material resonate with modern ideas; and as a material for home products it provides a perfect platform to showcase cutting-edge design in your home.

Chrome Door Handles on Rose – and on Backplate

That is not to say that you cannot achieve striking contemporary tones with other materials. Polished brass is also now an extremely popular modern take on a more traditional material, which is often used within the design of new homes.

However, if it is chrome door handles that you have your heart set on, there are a few more aspects that you should look to further consider. On-rose designs are perhaps the most commonly chosen style of chrome door handles for contemporary homes. They enable home designers to further a sense of sleekness, and can be found in square, oval and even hexagonal form.

On-backplate designs are also popular, and whilst they may be more often used within traditional home design; they are just as valid for those looking to showcase a more contemporary style.

Cubik door handles in contemporary styleInnovative, fresh design ideas are ensuring that the world of home interiors is constantly evolving. Staying ahead of current trends can be difficult; but researching them is a worthwhile investment of your time.

Understanding the materials that provide you with the best possible platform to impress – whilst keeping your home wonderfully contemporary in the process – is essential. Polished brass, polished chrome and satin chrome are all perfectly placed to be utilized in the production of contemporary door handles.

Polished Brass Door Handles

For doors made of woods such as beech or pine; polished brass handles can be the perfect compliment. The material is perfectly suited to match the subtle tones of these woods – evidencing to visitors your knowledge of contemporary design concepts. Our polished brass products that we have in stock are protected by only the most advanced of lacquers; ensuring many years of service from your product. Metal cleaner and aerosol sprays should never be used to care for polished brass door handles once they are installed – use either a cloth moistened with soapy water or a soft cloth with beeswax for the task.

Polished Chrome Door Handles

As chrome plating that is often placed on brass or steel surfaces then polished; polished chrome is another excellent material choice for your modern door handles. The cool, silver tones often have no need to be lacquer-coated; as the surface rarely tarnishes. The slickly-stylized, sparkling finish perfectly emanates modern design tones. To care for your polished chrome door handles once they are installed you should simply lightly dust them with a non-abrasive cloth – avoid wax polish as this can create smearing which is difficult to remove.

Satin Chrome Door Handles

For a less sparkling and reflective product, choose satin chrome door handles. The material provides the appearance of a more of a painted finish; and can be perfectly blended with subtlety-painted doors to provide a modern finish that is duller in appearance than polished chrome. Satin chrome is regularly implemented in contemporary home design; and is particularly resistant to corrosion.
