Door handles are the often overlooked details that can actually make all the difference to the look and feel of a space and of furniture pieces. They are the accents you place on every transition from room to room, or the part of piece of furniture that you will most often touch. Door handles need to be functional, first and foremost, but that doesn’t mean they need to be boring as well.
Restoration Online is home to thousands of door handles and we specialise particularly in new reproduction styles that evoke the look and feel of period architecture like Federation style, Art Deco and French Provincial. We choose the highest quality handles across our entire range to ensure long-lasting and reliable design. With over 40 years of building and restoration experience, we know our hardware so we’re happy to offer assistance in choosing the right fit, the perfect look and the ideal colours for your project.
Choosing the right door handles for a new build or a renovation project should always be final act of the designer. By the end of the build you know exactly what the look and feel of the entire space is and you’ve stuck to design choices that will impact how finishers like door handles impact a space. This is the fun part of the build – the decoration. When you’re renovating or restoring particular period spaces then you will already know the general look and feel of what you’re ideally looking for. Art Deco lever door handles, for example, are a particular style so they’re easy to search for and identify. Federation door knobs are also particularly styled and you will probably have some examples from your renovation project that you can use to base your search on.
If you become unstuck searching for exactly the right kind of door handle or door pull, don’t worry. We know our door handles and we’re happy to help. Simply drop us a line and let us know what style you’re looking for and we’ll point you in the direction of which part of our website you can buy door handles online that fit the look and feel of your design. We also offer a free door scheduling service where you can send us the house plans of your space (or a list of the doors you need handles for) and which kind of style you’re looking at. We’ll send you back a detailed quote listing the types and sizes you need to buy.
Contemporary designs, particularly in suburban and urban spaces, can benefit from a jumbled and eclectic collection of styles. Often contrasting styles and materials can create depth and texture within a small space and this is particularly useful for apartment living where you don’t often have a lot of space to play with. By choosing vintage style knobs for your central connecting doors and then offsetting them against furniture handles like porcelain furniture knobs, you can build layers of design into forgotten spaces. This is also a great way to save old furniture. Even the best-looking timber furniture can become a bit drab and boring over the decades. Rather than replacing an entire unit, investing in a handful of colourful or antique style cabinet handles could give your piece the facelift it needs to become new again within your space.
Bedside tables and small shelving units with smaller drawers can be given a whole new lease on life and reidentify as country chic with the addition of a few well chosen tear drop handles. These dainty little swing pulls can evoke French Provincial delicateness or a strong and bold Victorian classical feel. The difference in is in the materials. Brass and copper finishers lend a piece depth and complexity while lighter white porcelain and chrome and crystal accents soften pieces and offer a gentler colour palette for the rest of your furnishings, including soft furnishing touches like throws and carpets.
The kitchen is one of the most functional rooms in the house so kitchen handles for cupboards, drawers and connecting rooms like the laundry need to be highly functional and long-wearing. A lot of hands will be touching these door handles and sometimes we’re in a rush while we’re cooking or little helping hands in the kitchen cause accidental damage. Choosing the right door handles for your kitchen should be based on design and feel, matching the rest of your home, but also function. Would drawer cup pull handles be best or kitchen T handles? Which is the most comfortable to use on a daily basis? How are your kitchen doors positioned and what height are they? Take into account things like the weight and swing of your kitchen doors to get your door handles to balance correctly within the space. A beautiful kitchen drop handle might look stunning, but would it be more functional to use pull handles> that can be grasped quickly?
Often matching tapware and door handles in the bathroom and laundry space is the best way to generate a clean, sleek and tidy design finish. When all of the little details match a room can be drawn together holistically in the mind’s eye. Stepping into bathroom spaces with mis-matching cupboard knobs and taps is jarring to the eye and can make even the cleanest space look dishevelled and uninviting. If you’re choosing brass tapware, then consider matching the vanity knob material an then continuing the colour with towel rails and other detailed finishes.
If you’re looking to replace broken door handles with something almost exactly the same, then there are a couple of things you will need to know about the parts inside the handle like the spindle size. This, and the mortice lock, will determine whether you can find a straight replacement from among our new reproduction styles or whether you will need a completely new set of door handles. We’re always here to help and if you let us know what type of door handle, you’re looking to replace then we can let you know whether we stock what you need. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in our online catalogue, then please let us know. Usually we can source a manufacture, arrange some modifications to pieces that we do carry or at the very least point you in the direction of where you might find what you need.
