While you are looking at different types of door handles, you should also consider the colours and shapes of the handle, which should be purchased to match the look of the door. Antiqued doors, particularly in an older home, could do with a Victorian style lever door handle. More modern homes may be best suited by purchasing a modern, straight-steel effect door handle which looks very industrial and robust. Different styles of door handles suit certain styles and atmospheres in a home, and it is important to match these effectively.

The modern door knocker is a vestige of this style of primitive door handle. Doors were typically secured by bars and brackets to prevent them from being opened by either intent or accident. Over time, large crossbars used to secure a door were supplanted by sliding bars, operated by a handle secured to the bar and projecting through a slot in the door, or as a pivoting bar - often called a latch - that could be dropped into a matching slot on the door jamb. In Colonial America, the operating mechanism for a small pivoting bar was a latch string threaded through a hole in the door near the handle. There are - probably apocryphal - accounts and references implying that this mechanism was a workaround for heavy taxes and a crown edict mandating the colonists could only use door latches or locks imported from England. About the middle of the 18th century, handles and locks were integrated into a single unit, the earliest known examples being levers that both operated the latch and served as a pull to open the door.

A good strategy is to choose a handle that complements the style of the door, so that it stands out not diminishing the style of the door too. For example, slick doors do not go with antique door handles. If the door is not at a very common place at home or not to be used a lot, simple handles are good options. Types of handles also depend on the area of residence. For example homes based near the ocean tend to get rust on everything specially the doors and the door handles, stainless steel handles are made for such houses.

The Kitchen is the one room in the house that presents the door handle manufacturer and supplier with a range of problems peculiar to that room and which are worth considering. The door handles require a number of design factors to be considered dependent on their position and usage. The first problem with a kitchen is that because it deals with food it is susceptible to the transmission of germs throughout the kitchen. Food is invariably transported and prepared by hand and this is then transmitted to other surfaces when cupboards are opened and closed. The fridge and freezer are the major culprits because these are the most commonly used appliances but the other cupboards are also a prime contenders. The use of door handles to open the cupboard doors are the prime region of contact where and whilst some materials are better than others for retaining germs, all of the handles do it to some degree. Therefore it is worth using a door handle that is easily cleaned on a regular basis so that any germs are disinfected quickly and precisely.

Door handles come designed for specific tasks and so it is important to use the right one for the job, as an example using an internal door handle for external use can prove disastrous and it may well rust in no time at all. Also when it comes to fitting a lock to a door you will need to decide whether you are going to have a separate handle and lock, or a fitting that combines both. It may well be that like most people you do not need locks fitted to every door, however if you do need some doors to be fitted with locks, on storage cupboards as an example, and want to use handles fitted with integrated locks in them then make sure they are available in the range of handles you are considering buying. This is because it can be very easy to buy a range of handles only to decide you need some with integrated locks at a later date, but if they do not do them in the range, you may find yourself swapping out all of your handles for a new range. So a tip when buying is to make sure that the range you are looking at actually has all the handle fitments you need, to avoid a costly swap out at a later date. Also if you are buying ones for commercial premises then you may want to ask your supplier if the handles you are looking at purchasing will be suitable, as they will have to put up with a lot more "Traffic" in terms of how often they are opened and closed during the day, as well as how hard wearing the finish of the door handles is.
