Alexandrin Door Handles September 17th, 2017 - 06:23:50
Door handles have become like fashion statements at the top end of the market, as some variations come in intricate and ornate designs to add glitz and glamor to the over-all look of your home. While retaining its main functionality of opening and closing doors, variations in handle design often come in relation to particular needs and requirements such as: for nursery rooms, handles sometimes come in cheerful cartoon designs; for kitchen doors, some have fruit embellishments; for a girls room, pink handles are also available. These are fancy handles: but for permanent and lasting use, most homes use the more versatile materials such as brass and metal handles, which can withstand repeated use, and can adapt to most household interiors.
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.
The next thing that you should consider is the style of the interior door hardware you want to use. Would you like a knob, handle or lever? This is an important consideration because you will be using these handles to open and close cabinet doors. Get one that fits your hands perfectly so they wont cause strain on your part. Another thing that you might want to consider is whether you are getting ones with backplates. Door handles with backplates can add more charm to your cabinetry so pay special attention to their design, size and shape. You might be surprised how easy it is to find the best cabinet handles.
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!
