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!

Some people are eager to splurge on high-tech lock sets like keyless and card-swipe systems. However, you need to be sure if they are 100% reliable. For your front and back doors made of solid materials like wood, a single cylinder dead bolt would do. However, if you have delicate glass doors, which are accessible and attractive to burglars, your better option would be a double cylinder dead bolt, which needs to be opened with a key from both inside and out.

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.
