One of the most important yet overlooked house features when it comes to design is the doorknobs and handles in our homes. Often, unique doorknobs are seldom found since functionality and quality are more important than aesthetics.
While that is true, we can’t help but look at the many options that are available and consider their overall quality too.
Knobs and handles for doors, cabinets, and drawers offer basic protection and function to any home. They make moving from one place to another a lot easier, especially when there are doors that need to remain close for privacy. And make accessing stuff a lot easier too.
With the innovation of technology, unique doorknobs and handles are also gaining popularity. Not only because they are aesthetically pleasing but have improved functionality as well.
Choices for unique doorknobs for doors, cabinets, and drawers are limitless in terms of styles, shapes, and finishes. This article will explore those options that you can also incorporate in your homes.
What Is The Most Popular Door Handle Finishes?
Your doorknob and handle’s finish play an important role when it comes to interior design consistency. Often, your surface finish choice can make or break your home design.
Below are some of the popular doorknobs and handles finishes:
1. Polished Chrome. The polished chrome finish offers a sleek look that is perfect for modern room interiors. Polished chrome is chrome plating on brass or steel that is not lacquer coated since they don’t tarnish.
2. Matte Black. Matte Black is a stylish and daring choice that will work well with interiors that have contemporary and modern designs. These are perfect for homeowners that choose to use trendy black elements to complement their homes.
3. Copper. Copper finishes for door handles are rather casual and relaxed. This makes them the perfect option for industrial home styles.
4. Satin Stainless Steel. Satin Stainless Steel offers a subtle sheen. It is popular because it is resistant to smudging and fingerprint marks.
5. Antique Brass. Antique brass offers a glossy look that works well with traditionally designed homes. Most antique brass doorknobs have timeless designs that homeowners will love.
Should All My Doorknobs Match?
When designing our homes, we often look at design consistency.
That is true, most of the time. But it doesn’t necessarily refer to all the aspects of your home.
For example, you can have both a colorful kitchen and a colorful bathroom, but you don’t need to have a colorful living room too.
This is the same with your knobs and handles for your doors, cabinets, and drawers.
You can have fun with your unique doorknobs and handles, too. Just remember to use the same finish as the rest. Or maybe choose one that is consistent with that particular room’s color and design.
