Alexandrin Door Handles September 16th, 2017 - 08:39:05
Treat door handles as an accessory to your door. This should help in choosing the right style and colour for your home. So if it is an accessory to your doors you will need to look at your doors and see what kind of style they are, for example are they pine wood and simple in design, or are they white and very traditional and intricately styled? If you have a very busy door dont go for a busy door handle, choose a style that is in keeping with the doors mood but calm it down a little on the door handle otherwise itll look too much in the room. If you have a plain door you can go all out and with a jazzy and fancy door handle.
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!
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.
Nice and easy, and low maintenance, the best way to keep your chrome handles looking great is to dust them and give them a quick wash over with the tried and tested soft cloth and warm soapy water combination. Make sure to dry thoroughly afterwards with a lint free cloth or towel. An occasional wipe over with a light oil will also help maintain the appearance of your handles. Dont use metal polishes or any kind of abrasive cleaner.
