A guide to buying brass door handles

Brass door handles are great additions to almost any home or building. These handles can add refinement and elegance in a room or space. When selecting brass door handles, take into consideration several variables to enhance your chance of ending up with designs that you will be happy with.

Style, finish and household members

Style Determine beforehand which door handle style you want so that to lessen the time you would spend choosing models. There are numerous styles and designs of brass door handles available in the market today and selecting one can get overwhelming if you walk into a store not having at least a rough idea of what you want. Also, get a brass door handle that would complement the door as well as the design of the room. Door handle finish Get a brass door handle that's rust-resistant, firm to grip and easy to clean. Door handles can also affect albeit in a subtle way the design of a room or house. Appealing brass door handle finishes that you can choose include weathered and antiqued ones. Household members Consider also household members when selecting door handles. Do you have kids who are not yet that strong to firmly grip certain door handle types? Do you have elderly family members living with you who are suffering from mobility problems and require specially designed handles? If you have trouble deciding one that would benefit all members of your family, you can simply settle for a door handle that has a traditional design.

Locks and budget

Locks or no locks? Some brass door handle designs come equipped with a lock while some don’t. If the room where you’re going to put the brass door handle in does not need to be secured, do not bother getting a much more expensive handle with a lock. On the other hand, if you’re going to be using the door handle in your bathroom or bedroom, then you might need to get one that comes with a lock mechanism. Budget Determine your budget range and how much you are willing to spend. Next, count the number of doors in your home. To know how much your expected cost would be for each door handle, divide your budget by the total number of doors. With this figure at hand, it would be easier for you to know if a particular design is within your budget range. Visit your nearby hardware store and scout for designs before going online to check for cheap door handle deals. Most of the time, brass door handle prices in online stores are lower than in traditional shops as the former do not have to spend on rental space.
