4 Tips to Help You Choose the Right Door Knockers

When it comes to making any changes at your property, you’ll want to carry them out in the most effective way. At Handsome Handles we deeply understand this, as we’re the leading supplier of door furniture to the Sheffield and Rotherham areas. As a result of this and the advice we regularly provide, you can feel confident in choosing us to make such alterations.

Cost, style and the quality of the company you’re buying from are all important factors which can make a difference to the success you have. We’ve put together some useful tips which are worth your consideration when it comes to purchasing new door knockers:

How Will Your New Door Knockers Work with Your Existing Property Scheme

This is perhaps the most important thing to consider when it comes to buying your new door knockers. Unless you’ve recently acquired a new build house, it’s likely that you’ll either be living or moving into premises that are already largely decorated. If you’re budget is limited then you may have to work with the existing decor, so blending in new door furniture with that needs to be done carefully.

What Material Will You Choose?

The finish of your front, side and back doors will ultimately have a noticeable say on the door knockers you’re able to use. We present an abundance of options to ensure that we provide something for everyone. Designs made from polished chrome, satin nickel, black iron and many more materials are all included in our product stock.

Ergonomics

As well as taking care of the aesthetical appearance of your new door knockers, it’s also useful for you to think about the ergonomics of them. These pieces of door furniture are particularly personal, as they require the conscious interaction of your visiting guests. A heavy black iron door knocker for example will have a very different feel to a slender polished chrome one.

Something More Unusual

To really impress your guests you can always embrace the more unusual side of design; and door knockers present you with the ideal opportunity to do this. With both traditional and contemporary designs based on famous door knocker designs – such as lion heads and hands – there is something for everyone looking to make an impression with our products.

Door Knobs One of 5 Things to Consider When Moving House

When it comes to moving home, there are so many things that you need to consider. You’ll want to make sure that you make all the right decisions to guarantee your happiness in your humble new abode. With that in mind, we’ve put together a guide that looks at some of the main areas to focus your energy on to give yourself the best chance of a smooth transition:

Property Budget

The first thing to take care of is working out exactly how much you can afford to spend on your new property. That shouldn’t just include the upfront costs; as it’s likely that you’ll also want to add your own personal touch to your new home once you’ve moved in. Make sure to consider both factors within your overall budget and you should be fine.

Design Scheme

Once you’ve worked out how much you can afford to spend, you’ll be able to tailor your potential interior design scheme around the money you have available. Perhaps you just want to make minor changes to the existing property scheme? Or maybe you have your eye on completely renovating one or two rooms? The potential is limitless and this should be a process you enjoy.

Area

It’s also important to consider the area that you’re buying your property in. For some, this is even more important than the house itself. Whether it’s because you want to be in the catchment area for a certain school, or nearby to the countryside for lazy summer strolls; the requirements will be different for everyone.

Investment Factor

If you’re a seasoned property developer, or perhaps just someone who sees your new home as a partial investment, it’s worth taking into consideration how your new home can be maximised to increase in value whilst you live there. It might seem strange to think about leaving the place you’re only just buying; but some sort of long-term plan could pay dividends for you further down the line.

Door Knobs and Other Small Details

ball mortice door knobsOne way to add such value is through careful consideration of the minor details. Whilst we’ve looked at managing a budget for implementing larger-scale property changes, small features can be altered and replaced far more easily – with great effect. New door knobs are a great example of this.

They can help to add a real touch of class to your home in a cost-effective manner; so choosing to purchase them is an easy decision. For all your door furniture requirements, we at Handsome Handles are then perfectly placed to help.

Georgian-Style Door Knobs

Choosing Polished Chrome Door Knockers

chrome door knockersPolished chrome door knockers can make ideal property additions. 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.

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.

5 Things to Decide When Choosing New Door Knobs

aydon door knobsWhen it comes to deciding on any kind of door furniture, there are always plenty of factors that require your consideration. To get the look and fit just right within the grander scheme of your home it pays to do a bit of research and we can help you with it. With that in mind, here’s our guide to 5 of the most important decisions you need to make when installing new door knobs.

Material and Finish

Perhaps the most important call is which material your door knobs are going to be made from. We have so much choice that you really can tailor your decision to your individual needs; with black iron, polished chrome and antique brass products just some of the many material options available to you.

Style

The style of the door knobs that you choose is also vitally important to ensure a seamless transition of the new products into your home. We have pieces to match both contemporary and traditional properties; with everything from antique to slickly-stylised designs available to you.

Upkeep

When you initially choose your new products it’s also worth considering whether you’ll need to do any upkeep to leave them looking like new. Some of our designs possess a distressed finished and are designed to wear over time as part of the intended long-term effect; but others such as those made from polished brass will need looking after in their own way. You can find helpful advice on door furniture upkeep throughout this blog.

Where to Implement Your New Door Knobs

This may be a decision that you take before or after you choose your new door knobs. You may like a design so much that you’ll work to fit it within your interior design scheme once you’ve purchased the product. Or, alternatively, it may be essential to you that you only make a decision if you know exactly where your new pieces will fit within your property. The decision is different for everyone.

Whether You Want it to Be Sprung or Not

Door knobs rely on a spring inside the latch mechanism in order to turn. Contemporary designs can sometimes have a spring in the backplate of the knob itself and these are classed as sprung products. Unsprung products tend to rely on the spring in the latch doing the work. We can advise you on this matter further when you get in touch with us.

Door Handles and Door Knockers Available from Handsome Handles Too

We also have a variety of door knockers and door handles available to our customers too. We’ve always found that by providing more choice we’re able to deliver on satisfaction and that’s why we’re always looking to expand our ranges. Even if you can’t find the product you’re after in our stock we can usually source and supply the piece you’re after instead.
