You have decided to replace your current door with something more modern to match the contemporary vibe. But you wonder, ‘Would a door knob look too boring?’
Sally who lives across the street from you has a chrome finish rustic-looking long handle for her stunning Georgian-style house. Should you get that instead?
Who would have thought that selecting a handle for your dream door would be such a Herculean task?
As they say, it’s the little details that are vital so choosing the right door accessories, though a minor step, is extremely important.
Essentially, doors came with the classic handle wherein you were required to hold the handle down to open the door. However, modern times call for modern measures and with that came levers, knobs and pull handles.
At The Palladio Door Collection, when we say that the customer is the king, it is not an empty platitude- we mean it and hence, we want to present two sides of the coin, the advantages and disadvantages of these handle styles. Let’s dive into the handle business with knobs.
If you’ve a traditional-looking property from the 1800s that has been handed down to you or you’ve recently gone sale agreed on the well-distinguished house around the corner that you’d been hoping for, knobs would work their charm. They suit those resplendent Georgian or Victorian-style houses irrespective of the fact of what the home interiors look like.
Not just period properties, they can give a complete uplift to even modern self or newbuilds. It is also an excellent way of child-proofing your home, making sure that your toddler cannot open the door easily from the inside and crawl straight into the neighbour’s garden- that’s the last thing you’d want!
The only way a lever or a pull handle might have the upper hand would be because a door knob may not be able to offer the same grip as a lever or a pull handle would. Let that not deter you though!
Speaking of lever handles, they’re quite handy especially after you’re home with bags full of shopping and haven’t got a finger, let alone an arm, to spare. You could access your home using your elbow to press on the lever.
Can’t fault it though there’s a chance and admit it, we’ve all been there, that your clothing could get caught in the handle if you’re in a rush and aren’t paying attention while running up and down.
Pull handles: A thing to behold when fit perfectly on your stunning door! However, watch out for finger stains on these pull or finger-pull handles.
