Selecting the right lever handle for your door can drastically impact the style and functionality of your home. They are easy to use and available in a variety of designs and finishes to suit your preferences and budget.
Check out some of these useful tips to help you choose the best lever handle for your home:
Choose your aesthetic: Based on the existing interior design aesthetic and feel of your home, you need to decide how you want your doors to look. Do you prefer a classic or a contemporary style? Do you want a simple or a decorative lever handle? You can browse through different catalogs or websites to get inspiration and see what matches your home.
Choose your finish: Next, choose the colour and texture of your lever handle. Pewter, chrome, brass, bronze, copper, stainless steel, aluminium, these are the many options available to homeowners. Each finish has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of durability, maintenance and hygiene. Also consider the contrast and harmony between the finish of your lever handle and the colour of your door and adjoining wall.
Choose your application: Be aware of where you are installing your lever handle. Is it for an external or an internal door? If it is for an external door, you need to make sure that the lever handle is durable and can withstand outside elements. You may also want to choose a lever handle that has a key lock for extra security. If it is for an internal door, you may not need a lock, but you may want to choose a lever handle that has a privacy function for bedrooms and bathrooms.
Choose your handle: Once you have the practicalities taken care of, now comes the fun part! Choosing the handle itself — pick from a variety of shapes and sizes. There are different types of lever handles, such as straight, curved, angled, etc. You should choose a lever handle that fits comfortably in your hand and is easy to grip and turn. Only make sure to measure the thickness of your door and the distance between the edge of the door and the centre of the hole for the handle to ensure that the lever handle will fit properly.
Choose your backplate: The last step is choosing the backplate or rosette that goes behind the lever handle. The backplate covers the hole in the door and adds some style and stability to the lever handle. You can choose a backplate that matches or contrasts with the finish of your lever handle to add some extra panache to your door. You can also choose a backplate that has a different shape or size than the standard one for a fun detail!
These easy steps are a foolproof way to make sure you choose the best lever handle to fit your home in an aesthetic and functional sense. Remember to check the quality and warranty of your lever handle before buying it and follow the installation instructions carefully. Enjoy your new lever handles!
