Is a handle just a handle? We like to think not. Indeed your choice of door handles can make or break the way the door ends up looking. So when buying new door handles there are a few pointers that you need bringing to your attention.
It can be an easy to think that shopping for handles is easy and that it does not really matter which style you choose, after all they are just there to do a job and nothing more right?
However there are now hundreds of different handles available to suit every different taste. Indeed I would recommend that if you are seeking out something that looks a little bit different, possibly a designer style that will help really make your door in to a feature, then use the Internet to source your new door handles.
Doing so will really open up the amount of options available to you, after all you average Do It Yourself (DIY) store only has a set range of a couple of dozen handles, so there is a very high likelihood that you could end up picking the same style as your next door neighbour or friend has fitted.
The other advantage in shopping for them online is the amount of advice you will be able to get, as typically in your average DIY store you will not be able to find anyone who can give you specialist advice on them, such as are the handles a new range, or just about to stop being produced? The answers to such questions can be vital, as you could come back to the DIY store a week later only to find the ones you have fitted to half your doors are no longer in production.
An online specialist will be able to offer impartial advice and be able to give guidance should you be uncertain as to whether you have chosen the right handle for the job or not.
When choosing a handle you need to think about your rooms decoration as to whether the one you have chosen is going to fit in with the style of your room and complement the décor e.g. it is not advisable to fit an antique door handle to a modern room as it would just look out of place. Doing this will help you narrow down the range to choose from.
Lastly if you want a discount then remember that there can be an advantage in buying in bulk.
