Polished Chrome to Decorate Your Contemporary Home

We’ve recently taken a look in this blog at how polished chrome can be a great material choice for door knockers and door handles; but it can also work perfectly for door knobs. Ideally, you should look to implement chrome designs within more modern homes. They work particularly well inside cutting-edge bathrooms and kitchens; complimenting ceramic and metal features within the make-up of these rooms.

Georgian-Style Door Knobs

The Georgian era has always proven to be highly-influential on door knob design. As is often the case, when a property feature has made a significant impression throughout history it tends to remain in people’s minds. Designs such as our Georgian Mortice door knob are continuing to prove to be of great interest for those altering their homes with a traditional touch.

Choosing Polished Chrome Door Knockers

As a material, chrome is ideally suited to those who are looking to contemporise their homes; as it resonates wonderfully with modern property design concepts. We at Handsome Handles supply these door furniture pieces in abundance and are confident that you’ll be impressed by the choice that we offer.

With plenty of attached benefits, it’s little wonder that we regularly receive so much interest from our customers in Sheffield, Rotherham and beyond. Still undecided whether they’re the right products for you to modernise your home with? Here are some reasons to persuade you otherwise:

Ideal for Contemporary Door Knockers

As mentioned above, polished chrome is ideal for those interested in contemporary property design upgrades. This plating material has been cleverly developed to work as a slickly-stylised surface that is great for showing off within the grander scheme of your home. The cool tones will blend perfectly on the exterior of a modern property.

Great Design Variety

Perhaps a ring door knocker would work well for your home? Or maybe you’d prefer a narrower design. Whatever your requirements may be, you can be sure that we’ll point you towards the most appropriate products. We simply have so many great chrome door knockers here at Handsome Handles; all of which have been designed to improve the aesthetic appeal of differing properties.

Blends Well With Certain Materials

Chrome also blends well with a number of different door materials. Each home has its own unique touch and it only makes sense that you’d want to make sure that any new products you add seamlessly transition into your overall property scheme. Having the peace of mind that this is covered with chrome door knockers is highly satisfying.

Weather Resistance

In general, chrome can operate well as a weather-resistant surface. If you live on the coast for example, you’ll need door knockers that don’t react to the surrounding air; and for that chrome plating is ideal. It’s worth bearing in mind that deposits will accumulate over time on external fittings – we’d always recommend regular cleaning with a non-abrasive wax polish. By doing this you can ensure that your chrome door furniture remains in a quality condition.

The satisfaction of cleverly spending your hard-earned money can work wonders for your overall quality of life; by adding value, space and style to your home.

All the door handles and door furniture pieces that we supply have been strategically selected to offer both choice and quality; so that the final touches to your revitalised rooms are implemented perfectly.

With a focus on contemporary changes, we’ve taken a look at some valuable points to consider when upgrading your bathroom, kitchen or study:

Bathroom Handles

There are plenty of ways to contemporise your bathroom. Choosing the right materials for new surfaces, appliances and pieces such as the sinks is essential. From wall tiling to floor tiling; the possibilities are endless and it simply depends on what your perfect vision for your modern home is. For the door furniture that you choose, our polished chrome door handles are ideally placed to help. They blend excellently within a grander scheme that includes white ceramic and black shelving pieces.

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. For the latter choice, satin chrome or satin nickel ones could work well.
