Choices to Make When Purchasing New Door Knockers

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.

Bold or Subtle Door knockers black antique design

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.

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.

Art Exhibition Opens up Lost World of Door Knockers

As the leading Sheffield-based supplier of door knockers, we’re always interested to hear of any news related to the industry. One story which recently caught our eye was that of a married Iranian couple; who have spent the last 25 years documenting Iranian door knockers throughout their travels to over 20 towns and cities in the country.

Architect Alireza Jahanpanah – born in Tehran – and his wife Irandokht Pirsaree have been photographing and researching the shapes, designs and details of the door knockers; as well as studying the forging methods used in their creation. They are now exhibiting their findings at the Deep Cove Seymour Art Gallery in Vancouver, to share their discoveries with the local public.

Beautiful, Ornate Door Knockers wealdon door knockers

 Jahanpanah became fascinated with the door knockers due to their beautiful, ornate structures. Through travelling around both rural and urban areas, he was able to learn so much about the manufacture of these distinctive property features.

Interesting discoveries such as how men and women had separate door knockers designed to omit different sounds have helped to shed light on these charming little features of Iran’s property history.

Here at Handsome Handles, we like to think that plenty of our own door furniture can also help to provide satisfaction to property owners. If this story interests you, our excellent ranges should fascinate you.

Contemporary Vs Traditional Door Knockers

When it comes to adding new door knockers to your home, there are a variety of things to consider. Material, style and cost all important; whilst it’s almost impossible to make the right calls without focusing on whether you want your new door fixtures to be traditional or contemporary.

This notion will form the key basis of the decisions that you make, as you don’t want any new purchases to clash with your existing property. If you’re happy with your home’s wider design scheme and just want to add new door knockers, then make sure you match like with like.

Or, if you’re starting from scratch and completely renovating your home, then spend some time deciding whether you want to go down the contemporary or traditional route. Once you’ve done your research, the following advice will help you with the path you end up going down.

Contemporary Door Knockers

A common feature of contemporary properties is that they can be noticeably striking in their design. That pristine, stylised style can be beautifully refreshing, so it’s essential that it’s not spoilt through lack of consideration for finishing touches like the door knockers.

4 Material Choices for Your New Internal Door Handles

Internal door handles may seem insignificant within the grander scheme of your home; but you should always remember to consider them carefully when making property upgrades. When integrated in the right way, they can add a touch of class and a sprinkle of charm; so it pays to research these door furniture pieces to help you make the right decisions.

If you do, you can be sure that you’ll impress visiting friends and family with your ability to pay attention to the minor details of your property – but how can you be sure to get it right? The 3 most important factors are how any new internal door handles will fit with the existing interior design of your home; the design of the pieces you choose; and the materials they are made from.

We’ve taken a look at the last of those points for you to help give an indication of how chrome, nickel, brass, black antique and bronze would match to your property. This should help you to make the well-informed decisions that you need to:

ChromeInternal kitchen door handles

Chrome is versatile, slick and stylised; making it perfect for the most contemporary of properties. Whether you’re looking for internal chrome door handles for kitchen and bathroom furniture; or something more standard for select doors within your home, we’ve got the choice to keep you satisfied.

Nickel

The subtle, unassuming shine of satin nickel makes this another ideal material selection for door handles within modern homes. It bears similarities to stainless steel and is often applied as a brush finish to a brass base. 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.

Bronze

Lightly-varnished wood is perfect to match bronze door handles to; as the tone of the wood helps to highlight their quality. Bronze acts as another example of a material that works particularly well within traditional home design schemes. Door hardware made in this way is sure to impress any visiting friends and family.

Builder Unknowingly Purchases Door Knobs Worth 2 Million Pounds

Delighted builder Brian Cairns has been presented with an incredible opportunity to make £2million; after chancing upon a 12-tonne load of scrap metal with a hidden secret. Within the collection - which he paid £20,000 for - were a collection of vintage door knobs which he has since had valued at the incredible multi-million pound sum.

He told the Independent: “I bought it all for scrap but I started looking into what they really were and realised many were vintage Italian handles. These are items that you would never have thought you would have the chance to buy. It’s a once in a lifetime thing. I think I was just lucky.”

655,000 Brass Objects Including Door Knobsdoor knobs for property improvement

The door knobs were found within what was a larger haul of door fittings, with 655,000 brass objects – including screws and hinges – hidden within. The antique door knobs themselves are worth around £150 each. The Italian company who produced the pieces went out of business 55 years ago, adding to the value of Mr. Cairns discovery.

To transfer his findings to go on sale at Jarrow Auction Rooms, the builder had to hire two seven-and-a-half tonne lorries. The 500-mile journey took over 2 days to complete, as the sheer weight of the contents forced a maximum average speed limit of 20mph to be imposed.
