Get a Handle on Your Pets

Handles to pet proof your homeLincolnshire living couple, Sue and Stewart are the owners of chocolate Labrador, Rollo.  He looks sweet enough, but behind this deceptive exterior, Rollo is a living food disposal unit, eating food and its packaging that does not need disposing of!  Nine year old, Rollo, has even eaten a packet of cigarettes, a jar of mincemeat (including the glass jar) and nearly died after his suicidal attempt at bulking up on rat poison.

It started off as being mildly amusing, with Sue describing Rollo as the ‘pre-rinse cycle’ on her dishwasher because he licked every single item inside whenever she opened the door.  Then Rollo learnt how to take the lid off yoghurts without any assistance before he consumed the contents, he studied how his owners opened the kitchen doors and copied their actions with the kitchen door handles using his mouth, this even included the fridge.  This intelligent canine even worked out that if he bounced up and down on the trampoline he could knock the apples off the tree.  But something needed to be done by Stewart and Sue, as they decided after 6 years after having rescued him from Labrador Lifeline Trust, they simply could no longer handle his constant binge eating and their own starvation.

The time had come, therefore, to dog-proof the kitchen and other specific areas of the house.  This was done by adding new kitchen handles to all of the cupboards that were impossible for Rollo to use, the fridge has been equipped with a high pull handle which has, to date, been successful.  Unlike the supposedly dog-proof bin, doors with chain, stairgates, briefcase and Tupperware boxes which have all been rather the opposite.  This gigantic kitchen makeover has cost an astonishing £25,000, which, by the sound of it, is less than Rollo eats in a week!

Could Door Knobs Be the Key to the Safety of Dementia and Alzheimer Sufferers?

Studies have now found that six in 10 people who suffer with dementia often ‘wander’ off and become lost.  It is not the act of ‘wandering’ off that is usually the problem, it is returning.  A person suffering with Alzheimers may not be able to recall the correct information as to what their name is, their own address and they can often become disorientated, even if they are in a familiar place.   On average, sufferers are able to ‘wander’ 1.5 miles away from the place they were last seen before they are found.  ‘Wandering’ has nothing to do with the level of care structured by the caregiver, but can in fact happen even in the most Dementia or Alzheimer friendly places and with the most diligent of caregivers present. 

‘Wandering’ Preventing Door Knobs

Interestingly though, it has been suggested that door knobs could be key to this.  Obviously, it is not recommended that a person suffering from Dementia or Alzheimers is ever ‘locked’ in a room, but certain door knobs seem to be positive attributes to their safety and the safety of others around them, as well as reducing the stress levels of carers when patients go ‘wandering’ because they reduce the number of occasions that this happens.  Camouflaged door knobs have been recently been trialled.  This is where door handles are painted the same colour as the door or the walls in the room in order for them to not be so prominent and become camouflaged and therefore harder for the escapee to escape.  However, this is not unsafe if there was to be an emergency, as the handle is still prominent from the outside of the door, so access can be permitted easily by the carer or emergency services if needed. Alternatively, child-proof door knobs can be used for sufferers’ safety.  Another idea is to use a door knob which is connected to a device which lets off a signal when a door or window is opened.  This, for example, could be a bell, which can be placed over said door or window so that the carer is made aware if the patient has opened either of these escape route methods.

New door furniture can improve the aesthetics of your home without burning a hole in your wallet. Here at Handsome Handles, we continue to provide great choice and style when it comes to these products; through our ranges of door knobs, door handles and door knockers.

Taking a closer look at the latter of those, there are a few important things for you to consider if you want to be successful with the purchases that you make. Your available price range and the existing design scheme of your property are perhaps the most important of these.

With that in mind, we’ve taken a closer look at why these and some other relevant factors are important in your purchasing decision process.

Shape and Size

Delicate and shimmering ring door knocker designs may be better suited to a delicately-varnished light-wood door; whilst a rugged, heavy-set black iron door knocker may be the right option for a contrasting property.

Great prices are available for products of all different shapes, sizes and styles – so we’re confident that we can deliver satisfaction to you.

Door Knockers Material

As we often mention in this blog, the materials you select for your new door knockers are vital with relation to their overall appearance. Looking for something more traditional? Then antique brass, black antique and black iron pieces would be most suitable for you. Or, if you’ve got more of a contemporary eye for property design, then our polished chrome and satin nickel door knockers would be more appropriate for you.

Why Chrome Door Handles Can Be Beneficial for Your Home

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. Whichever design you go for with your chrome door handles, there is always a way to make it best work for you and your home.
