The right finishing touches on doors can be the difference between a good door and a great door, both visually and practically.

However, things such as handles are often overlooked when it comes to design and consideration and this can lead to people not maximising on the impact their doors can have.

Mismatched doors handles can make a space or room look fragmented (consider old-fashioned doorknobs in a room with high tech gadgets, modern furniture and a clean minimalist decorating style and you can begin to see what we mean). However, it is not just about the visual element of it. As there is such a wide variety of designs it means you can alter the way a door moves, how much space it takes up and much more. Get the choice wrong and they will stand out for all the wrong reasons. However, getting it right can ensure the handles blend in and seamlessly and add to the aesthetic created by the designer.

Furthermore, if you are thinking about incorporating glazing into your doors, what type of glazing? Whilst you might not be concerned about the look of the glazing, it can have a considerable impact on the way it diffuses and allows light to be shared through the home, or in some cases, doesn’t. Once more, some consideration into this would be beneficial so you do not get a great looking door, but one that doesn’t aid in other parts of your home also.
