So if it is an accessory to your doors you will need to look at your doors and see what kind of style they are, for example are they pine wood and simple in design, or are they white and very traditional and intricately styled? If you have a very busy door don't go for a busy door handle, choose a style that is in keeping with the doors mood but calm it down a little on the door handle otherwise it'll look too much in the room. If you have a plain door you can go all out and with a jazzy and fancy door handle.

Handles and knobs experienced a massive period of growth and development throughout the Victorian Era (1830-1900). Thousands of variations on the theme of the door handle, in combination with modern production methods, made door handles accessible to virtually everyone. Latches faded in popularity and use, relegated to service in barns and similar outbuildings where their simplicity and design function trumps external appearance. These handles today serve multiple functions. Among these functions, may include lock and key mechanisms, electronic locks, push button access that is either mechanical or electronic, high-security features and many other applications other than a simple push-pull device to open or close a door.

To reduce the likelihood of this, make sure to remove any harmful deposits that may lead to corrosion occurring, and wipe over the door handle from time to time with a light oil applied with a soft cloth. If you can avoid doing the following, you'll help extend the life of your door handles: Don't hang excessive weight from the handle e.g. full shopping bags. Don't allow children to hang from or play with the handle. Don't use the handle as a door stop against a wall - far better to install a door stop to prevent the door handle banging against the wall (you can find some great ones here). So to keep your door handles, door pulls and door furniture looking like new, a few minutes cleaning and care every couple of months or so will have a significant impact on the long term maintenance requirements of your products.

You could address this by painting or polishing the old door handles, but if you want to look for something different, then you should consider purchasing dome brand new door accessories, including handles. Getting new handles is not very difficult, and you can pick up a new set for a few pounds at your local DIY store. However, many of these door handles look as cheap as they seem, and this can make them an unattractive match with your new door. Rather than trying to find locally sourced door handles, it makes sense to look for them further afield.

You could decide to pick a colour which complements the room, and which will therefore add harmony and balance to your surroundings, or you could decide to include something which contrasts heavily with the other features of the room the door is in. This can help to create an eye-catching feature, particularly when decorated with contrasting colours and shapes. Use these features to design a room which causes people to take notice of all the accessories, or to provide a contrast which shows that the door and the frame are part of something separate.

A good tip when shopping for your door handles is to take a piece of wood the same type and colour as the door in question and put it against all the door handles to see if it goes, just as you would in choosing a set of curtains against the paint on the walls, you need to see if it will go. And don't be afraid to mix and match, it is not law that you have to have the same door handles throughout your home, if one of your rooms has a different feel to it go with the door handle that fits that, they don't all have to be the same!

When you consider that some 120 million doorways exist in the United States alone and another two million are installed each year, you can only imagine the vast number of door knobs. Going back in history, doors were initially made from textiles and animal hides. However, during the ancient Mesopotamia and Egyptian era, wooden doors were developed. Soon, materials for making doors expanded to include stone, glass, metal, and even paper. Doors throughout history have also changed regarding functionality. For instance, we still find doors of all types, those that roll, slide, swing, and fold. Of course, for doors to function, hardware is required to include door handles. Just as with doors, handles have a long history although these were first manufactured during the mid-19th century in America. The first handle was shaped like an egg and today, they are still found in many homes, especially older homes. Interestingly, because of the way this type of door handle is grasped, it has proved to be the easiest to open.

If the door is made of hardwood, it should have a handle mechanism that makes it easy to open and close the door. Furthermore, handles in common passage doors need to be durable to handle the continuous handling. You can then use the less durable but more beautiful handles for the inner doors that may not require a lot of opening and closing. A major concern with door knobs especially for public doors is the hygiene. People including medical practitioners have argued that handles do spread contagious diseases. By using materials like brass, copper and silver, you reduce the infection rate since these metals are poisonous to germs.
