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.
When decorating your house, no matter what room it may be, you always think of the major aspects such as what colour paint, plain paper or patterned, colour and style of carpet, what furniture to have, and so on and so on. The little features usually get forgotten about until the end or entirely missed and it is these little finishing touches that turn a well decorated room into an adorable living space.
The simplest handle is a pull - or push - projection on the side opposite the hinge. The placement of the handle is generally where it will provide an optimal mechanical advantage; most doors operating as second class levers. Doors with centre pulls or rings, or a pivot point in a location other than one edge of the door, use first or third class lever principles. Depictions of door handles in paintings dating to the first century CE are centrally placed hinged rings. The modern door knocker is a vestige of this style of primitive door handle. Doors were typically secured by bars and brackets to prevent them from being opened by either intent or accident.
