Making a Statement: How to Choose the Right Door Handles

One thing that can really finish off your interior doors is choosing the right kind of handle to match them. Although they may seem understated and of little importance, the handles you choose on your bedroom or kitchen cupboard doors can have a big impact. Replacing the cupboard doors in your kitchen or bedroom can breathe new life into the room, and choosing the right handles for the doors can similarly make a statement and help your new doors stand out even more. We have put together a guide to help you choose the right door handles and make a statement in your room.

Style

One thing that you need to consider when choosing your door handles or knobs is the style of your room and the doors. You should consider what the overall theme of the room is and also the theme throughout the house. If you have largely modern decor and features throughout your home, then it wouldn’t make sense to choose traditional style handles or knobs. You should make sure that the handles you choose match the style of your new cupboard doors.

Material

Another factor that you should consider when choosing door handles for your bedroom and kitchen doors is the type of material they are made out of. There are a lot of different materials to choose from when selecting your door handles and this can have an impact on how they look in the room. You can often get both wooden and metallic handles for your cupboard doors with a contrasting look on each. Metallic handles will stand out more and make a statement in the room, whereas wooden handles are less noticeable.

Finishes

On top of the type of material you choose for your door handles, you should also consider the finish of your door handles. Door handles come in a wide variety of different finishes and again, these can have an effect on how they look in the room. For example, if you choose to go with metallic door handles, you will have the choice of going for a chrome or satin finish. Chrome has a higher shine and will reflect a lot more light so is likely to stand out more than a lower sheen like satin. But you should also consider the finish of any appliances in the room as the finish of your door handles can complement this.

Function

You should also consider the function and size of your door when buying handles as this will affect the way that they look on the door. The function of the door is important as if it is a smaller cupboard that you don’t use as much, a knob might be better than a handle. Also, if it is a high cupboard then often knobs can look better than handles. You should also remember the size and length of the handle compared to the door, as you don’t want a handle that is too large for the door.

Choosing the right door handle for your kitchen or bedroom is important to make sure that your cupboard doors stand out and make a statement in the room.
