You should also check immediately if your door hinges are squeaking. Sometimes it might need just a little cleaning. You should also be aware of what kind of material your door hardware is made of, so you won't be applying any harmful chemical that might make it rust easily. For instance, brass door accessories need only soapy water or beeswax for cleaning, while chrome door handles are usually maintenance-free and require only non-abrasive wax, if you want a thorough maintenance. It would, indeed, be a pity if you go through all this trouble of finding the perfect door hardware, just to be left with one that does not work properly in just a year or so. Be sure to keep in mind these tips so you will have door hardware that suits your requirements, design- and function-wise.
Lever operated door handles are very popular in European homes, as they are easier to use. This makes them suitable for elderly people, as this design of these handles does not require a tight grip; unlike the door knob, which may slip from the user's hand. The door knob is more commonly used in the United States because of its practicality and dual functions: it functions as a door latching mechanism and a lock at the same time. However, U.S. commercial and business establishments have woken up to the practicality of using the lever style of door handles. Aside from easy operation, they are less likely to jam. Further, the lever operated handles are more robust, and can withstand constant use.
Nimbus Door Handles. The Nimbus is a completely different style from the Monet, and this shows most clearly in the handle, which is designed rather in the shape of a hairbrush, with a large extending shaft which is connected to the spindle inside the door, and then a rounded lever designed to be used to open the door. This rounded edge is covered with a different colour metal, intended to show off the different stages of the design. The lever is carefully made to ensure the most comfort possible to the user. This design appears in colours of brushed nickel with a polished chrome edge.
