Door Handles LTD is offering tips to help their customers purchase the right product for their home. Handles for doors come in many different varieties and if a customer is unsure about what they want to purchase, this can be quite a daunting experience as these are items that are not replaced regularly.

Interior door handles encompass a large variety of styles and designs. Below is a brief description of some of the most popular designs and styles which will hopefully be of use when deciding on what to purchase.
Chrome Door Handles can be used either internally or externally. Dating back to Victorian times during the Industrial Revolution when they first appeared, they are still one of the most popular choices. They have many finishes such as satin, nickel. The style of finish is decided by the element of the base brass metal before plating. A polished brass base will create a polished chrome finish and a satin brass base will create a satin chrome finish.

Brass Door Handles are very highly rated due to their many finishes and designs, including period styles right through to more modern day designs. They are known for their resilience and are often used for outdoor environments as well as interior environments.

Stainless Steel Door Handles are a hardwearing, non-corrosive material, used mainly in commercial applications and very good for an office environment. They can be purchased in either satin or polished stainless steel and are a very good choice if you are after a long lasting material.

Below is a description of the two main types of handles.

Rose Door Handles are one of the fastest growing types in the market. Rose is not as much a design but rather a type of door handle and comes in both of the chrome and brass styles named above. When fitted they take up a much smaller surface area, meaning that if they are to be replaced in the future the holes from the screws can be easily covered. Round rose have very contemporary designs and have a very elegant look yet are not overly expensive.

Backplate Lever Door Handles like Rose are not a design but a type. Basically they are what the description entails…lever door handles fitted on a backplate. A backplate lever is fitted via screws and is very easy to assemble. Due to the fact that many doors come pre-fitted with backplates, keep in mind that you may need to cover the holes from the screws by purchasing another backplate handle as a Round Rose could leave the previous holes exposed.
