Marveille Door Handles September 23rd, 2017 - 05:09:58
You have spent so much time, money and energy into creating the perfect bedroom, or lounge, or dinning room, and so you owe it to yourself to finish the job properly. Choosing the right door handles for your rooms is an example of the finishing touch that cant be missed. Picking out door handles doesnt mean just going with the cheapest, banging them on the doors and there you have it jobs done, choosing the right door handles can be as important as picking out the right colour sofa for your living room. For every home and every room and for every preference there is a door handle to suit. You may be thinking I have never even thought about door handles they just came with the doors, or they were there when we moved in and we havent touched them since which is all very well and good but now is a great time to have a look around and choose the perfect door handles to give your home and your doors a little bit of umph!
As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day, it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass, copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum, stainless steel, glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However, this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect, except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.
Whilst you may have spent hours helping your grandparents polish the fireside companion set, when it comes to your door handles, the best way to keep your polished brass door furniture looking shiny is with plain and simple warm soapy water and a soft cloth. The polished brass ranges we supply have all been treated with a special lacquer, and the use of metal polishes or other abrasive cleaners will damage this and cause it to wear away far quicker than it would under normal use. Eventually after a good few years of use, this lacquer may well breakdown, at which point, you should remove the door handle or pull, and treat it with an acetone thinner applied with a soft brush. Dry well with a soft cloth and then polish up with a metal polish. Regular polishing thereafter will keep them looking great.
Door handles are considered as one of the essential parts of any home or office. On one hand, they have practical uses; On the other hand, they add a lot to the overall interiors of home and office creating a great look and feel. Be it kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living or dining area, nothing looks perfect without attractive handles and knobs. Since the use of door hardware have become a fashion statement, they are being widely used to add glitz and glamour to the over-all look of your home or office.
