Alacoque. Door Handles. October 05th , 2017.
The first thing that you ought to consider is the type of material these cabinet door handles are made of. Since there are plenty of materials to choose from such as nickel, brass, chrome, stainless steel, wrought iron, glass and even plastic, you need to think about the overall effect that you are trying to achieve. To help you narrow down your search, you should consider where you will be installing these handles. Will it be your bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen? Knowing which cabinets or doors you are going to revamp will help you get one step closer to the right door handles to purchase.
While the Storm door handle could be described as an attempt to mix and match the two previous options, it really stands out on its own. The very long back plate is 185mm, over 50mm more than the length of the lever handle (which is 127mm). The handle itself is slightly curved, although not enough to be very noticeable, and is a single length of handle, rather like the Monet. It features the different colour metal on the palm pad, as exhibited by the Nimbus, which makes it an ideal match for a more modern house. The Storm door handle is also available with a lockable back plate which again matches a mortice lock in the same style.
When you need elegance and sophistication for an older door, or perhaps to compliment an older style house, then you should consider purchasing some back plate lever handles. These are designed to have the familiar elongated escutcheon, which works both as a thumb plate for the hand while it is using the door and an attractive ornament when the door is not in sure. These features mean that they are very popular with home owners, and can add an element of traditional furniture style both inside and outside the house.
Door handles can sometimes fade into the background even though we use them on a regular basis. Think about all the times you walk in and out of a room and you use the door handle but because we do it so often its almost like autopilot and we dont really look at the handles we are using. There is a massive choice in the array of handles today and by choosing the right style of door handle for your doors and room you can make your door handles take centre stage and the talking piece of that particular room.
The second facet of the design of door handles is that they should be simple in design both in shape and size so that they are do not protrude and catch people as they pass by. The shape should be such that it is easy to operate, in most kitchens they work by a straight pull with the door being held in position by a magnetic door catch and the design should reflect this. The pattern should not include grooves or crevices where dirt can collect and cause problems.
