Babette Door Handles September 16th, 2017 - 09:03:06
The Kitchen is the one room in the house that presents the door handle manufacturer and supplier with a range of problems peculiar to that room and which are worth considering. The door handles require a number of design factors to be considered dependent on their position and usage. The first problem with a kitchen is that because it deals with food it is susceptible to the transmission of germs throughout the kitchen. Food is invariably transported and prepared by hand and this is then transmitted to other surfaces when cupboards are opened and closed.
The other important aspect to consider when buying door handles is the aesthetic beauty. There are artistic knobs that may take diverse shapes such as a hand, bottle or a key. Some handles are placed at the center of the door for aesthetics. You can also get a see through knobs or a old fashioned ones. The door knobs also come in diverse colors to match with the door furniture and the rest of the house.
There are two types of handles, when it comes to general use: external or outdoor handles which are utilized on all main entrances to the home, be it front door, back door, side door or service door; and internal handles which are used for the doors inside the house such as bedroom doors and toilet doors. One of the most popular broad types of external door handles is the lever type, which is commonly used in European homes. External latches are normally bigger as they frequently come with key-in locks for security, and are called lever lock handles. Indoor handles (or lever latch handles) are smaller, as they come without locks, and key-in locks are normally installed separately on the door. There are also external handles with combined door knockers, a very practical alternative when your electric door buzzer is out of order.
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.
