How do I choose my doors handles and ironmongery.jpg

On the surface it’s a multitude of choices and decisions, however using our expertise we’ve simplified it down to a short process of A, B, C.

Typical questions include: What style doors should I have? What timber is best for the doors? What metal finish is preferred for the ironmongery? Is polished or satin better?

Your property will have a certain air, feel or taste, such as Contemporary, Victorian, or Art Deco; and you will no doubt want the doors and handles to blend into or complement your existing style. Alternatively you may have a new build and have decided what design style you are using.

The “Doorway Concept” is the principle of everything you require in, on and around the doorways in your property; so the doors, the handles, and the hardware or ironmongery.

To make it very easy follow this simple ABC process to create your overall doorway feel, which will mean you’ll be listing all the products required for your doorways. Then from there you or we can prepare a schedule.

For inspiration look at our door options and ironmongery options.
