How to use a unique door handle to express personality

Posted on

Once you arrive at the front door, the first real impression of any house is the door handle, so why not add some style to show your tastes? If you're feeling adventurous, sites like Etsy have an entire section dedicated to custom door handles. On sites like this, expect to find every kind of handle – from polished brass to the plain bizarre. Most importantly, though, is that with the resurgence of artisan craft – which is now made easily accessible thanks to the internet – there is no excuse for settling for the least worst option at your local hardware store.

Some interesting examples of unique door handles

For some specific examples of unique door handles, fans of Alice in Wonderland will appreciate this hand-molded knob inspired by Alice's whimsical adventure in Wonderland. If you are looking for custom knobs such as the Alice in Wonderland one, be sure that you get the original version, as forgers will often try to replicate existing designs with cheaper prices but inferior build quality and design. There are many different interesting designs available.

Indeed, most people think of door handles as knobs on the front or rear doors of a house; however, there is much more to the door-handle market than the entrances to your house. Handles help tie together your house aesthetically, and replacing your closet, pantry, dresser, and drawer door handles with a bold design can really give certain features of your house a new lease on life.

Deciding on a specific door handle

Believe it or not, but deciding on the perfect door handle for a house can cause some people a palpable amount of stress. One way to make the decision easier is to put together a shortlist. If you're on a budget, consider going for something more modest and simple rather than a bedazzled door handle. Most importantly, though, get a door handle that matches your house's colour scheme and general motifs. For instance, if you're in a wood cabin, there is no point in buying a diamond-encrusted door handle; conversely, if you're adding the finishing touches to a manor, you're probably going to want to opt for something more fanciful than an uninspired brass handle from the local hardware store.

A unique door handle affords you the opportunity to add a touch of flare and personality to your home, so don't leave it as an afterthought.
