Alita Door Handles September 22nd, 2017 - 05:48:17
Also when it comes to fitting a lock to a door you will need to decide whether you are going to have a separate handle and lock or a fitting that combines both. It may well be that like most people you do not need locks fitted to every door however if you do need some doors to be fitted with locks on storage cupboards as an example and want to use handles fitted with integrated locks in them then make sure they are available in the range of handles you are considering buying.
When you consider that some 120 million doorways exist in the United States alone and another two million are installed each year you can only imagine the vast number of door knobs. Going back in history doors were initially made from textiles and animal hides. However during the ancient Mesopotamia and Egyptian era wooden doors were developed. Soon materials for making doors expanded to include stone glass metal and even paper.
Think about the overall theme to your home and the individual room and what will look good with the style of the door. A good tip when shopping for your door handles is to take a piece of wood the same type and colour as the door in question and put it against all the door handles to see if it goes just as you would in choosing a set of curtains against the paint on the walls you need to see if it will go. And dont be afraid to mix and match it is not law that you have to have the same door handles throughout your home if one of your rooms has a different feel to it go with the door handle that fits that they dont all have to be the same!
When you are looking for door handles with an additional back plate you need to consider the different roles which style and tradition can play in the design of the door handles. The back plate is a very traditional feature of doors and can be seen on most Victorian-age homes but the plate can also be adapted for more modern use showing that it is adaptable for the times we live in. If you have a traditional home then you may choose a more traditional back plate design but for people living in new-build houses modern back plate features on handles can provide the nod to tradition that they were looking for without sacrificing style.
