What To Consider When Choosing Door Handles

Redesigning your own or someone else’s home is an undertaking that requires a lot of planning. Sure, we may begin by tackling large things such as the colour scheme or theme of a room, but when it comes to deciding on factors such as the door handles, care and attention should be given. These elements may seem like small additions given the scale of a complete renovation project, but their presence can make a big difference. In the latest post from Heart of Wood, we discuss the three things you should consider when choosing your door handles.


Budgets are there so you don’t overspend on certain areas and leave yourself with a tight budget for other aspects of your renovation project. If you are yet to embark on your project, be sure to allocate yourself one budget for the actual doors and a separate budget for the accessories – this way you can break everything down, making staying on track much easier. A reputable supplier will be able to guide you to products within your range and provide you with the advantages of each.


Whilst contrasting styles can often work well together, be sure to consider the colour scheme in your room so you can choose pieces that will stand the test of time.

Even small accessories can look completely out of place if they haven’t been carefully considered. If you are unsure of the style of door handle to opt for, try thinking of three words you would like people to describe their style and then find door handles to match your ideal description.


Of course, not all door handles serve as an entirely functional addition and may have grooving or decoration to suit your individual style.

If fingerprints on reflective surfaces bother you, you may want to opt for a matte finish. Other things to consider would be if the door requires a locking mechanism. If you require the door to be easily pulled open, a lever handle may work best.
