Door Handles – Levers or Knobs?

Which door handles you use for your home is quite a personal thing, it’s down to your own personal style. However, there is a certain element of functionality to consider too. Some of us wouldn’t even put that much thought into it, after all who really gives such things consideration? However, you’d be surprised at how important your front door handles can be.

Door knobs, style and substance.

As you’ll know there’s an incredible array of choice out there in door knob designs and finishes. Door knobs are versatile, and you can have minimalist and slimline through to decorative ones that come with cut-glass designs.

Practicality and functionality of the classic door knob.

On a functional and practical level, they fit well with the right latches and work smoothly in conjunction with the latch and door configuration. Door knobs work great with any style of home, but due to their age and the length of time they’ve been around, they work extremely well with older properties. Door knobs don’t always have to come in the usual round shape, they can also be oval shaped, giving you better grip.

Door Levers.

Door levers on the other hand are a more recent invention and are better suited to more modern designed homes. They’re popular with patio doors and front doors. Like door knobs they also come in a variety of different designs and styles, so there’s plenty to choose from.

Practicality of the door lever.

Time to address practicality again – they’re strong and easy to manipulate. You don’t always need to use your hands to open them, and this makes them convenient if your hands are full after shopping, or if you have co-ordination problems, or a disability. They also work with narrow lock cases and they come with great back plates that offer a variety of different functions. You can also include keyholes as part of the backplate, so you don’t have to get these separately.

So much choice.

Whichever you decide to go with, think about the style and design of your home when matching handle to door, and then consider practicality and function. Once you marry these two elements, you then have the opportunity of being able to purchase, first time, the right handles, without having to return and buy again. So, as you can see, thought and consideration when buying your front door handles is a worthwhile endeavour.
