Our range includes almost 600 different products so you are sure to find the door handles to suit your needs and add the perfect finish to your internal doors. To help you with your choice of door handles from our comprehensive selection you might find it useful to consider some of the following points in our guide to choosing internal door handles.

How to choose your internal door handles

What style of door and room are you choosing door handles for?

The perfect door handle can provide an attractive, and striking feature of your door and your room’s decoratative style, and not merely a functional piece of door furniture. But to do this you have to choose a style door handle that matches the style of your door and your overall decorative style. Are you decorating in a traditional style with complementary doors? You might prefer Victorian style door handles, or Georgian style door handles with their characteristic scroll designs to fit in with this look. Are you decorating in a modern style? You might then prefer a modern, designer door handle, typically with the handle based on a rose rather than a back plate, and with a sleek, straight or curved designer handle.

Who will be using the door handles in your home?

As well as looking great you want to make sure that your door handle is easy to use for all the people living in your home so everyone can get in and out of the room with ease. If you have small children, if you are elderly, or if your hand strength and dexterity is reduced for other reasons then you might prefer a lever door handle rather than a traditional door knob shaped door handle. These can be easier to grasp and turn for people with limited hand mobility. Thicker lever shaped door handles are also easier to use than thinner shapes. If you choose a lever shape door handle you should also think about the different sizes of hands that people have who will be using the door handles. You will want to choose a design with enough clearance between the lever and the face of the door so that everyone can use the door handles comfortably.

Are there any additional safety concerns?

Traditional door knob shaped door handles positioned at head height for small children playing in your home might be an accident risk. So if you have small children you might prefer a lever shaped door handle, and a design without sharp corners or sharp points that they might injure themselves on in the event of an accident.

What material is best for your door handles?

Our range of door handles includes products in chrome, brass, nickel, stainless steel, dual tone metal, glass, crystal, plastic, and pine. Your choice will often depend on the shape and style of door handle that you prefer, and the style of door and room that your door handle needs to complement. If you live in coastal regions, or regions with high humidity you might also prefer a more durable, corrosion resistant material for your door handles, such as high grade stainless steel.

What finish is best for your door handles?

Our metal door handles made from chrome, brass, nickel, and stainless steel are available in polished, brushed, and satin finishes. Which finish you prefer will often depend on look that you are hoping to achieve and the style of your door and rooms. You might also consider how easy it will be to keep your door handles clean and looking their best. If you have small children whose hands are prone to get messy when they play, or if your door handles are on kitchens or work rooms, then you might prefer a brushed finish for your door handles which shows marks less readily than a polished finish and can be easier to maintain.

How much do you want to spend on your door handles?

If you are changing door handles on a number of internal doors through your home you will want to consider how many door handles you will need in total, whether you want the same style of door handles on all of your doors, and your total budget for fitting all of your door furniture. This will help you decide how much you want to spend on each of your door handles. Our selection of door handles includes products at a wide range of price points so whatever your budget you are sure to find door handles that provide the look and functionality you want at great value and affordability.

What style of door face fitting do I want for my door handles?

Door handles attached to the door face with a backplate can provide a more traditional look with a lever handle or a mortice door knob shape, and is common with classic styles such as the Victorian look, or the Georgian look with its characteristic ornate scrolls. A backplate fitting also provides an easy placing for a locking mechanism if you are choosing door handles for a bathroom, or another internal door that you want to be able to lock. Door handles attached to the door face with a circular or square rose fitting typically provide a more modern, contemporary look with a designed, sleek lever or bar handle. However a rose fitting can also give you a traditional look if you choose door knob shaped door handles instead of a lever shape. If you want to add a lock to your internal door with your rose-fitted door handles you will need to pair them with etruscheons from our complementary selection to fit the locking mechanism into your door.

Do you have a preferred brand of door handles that you want to use?

If you have fitted door handles from a particular brand elsewhere in your home you might prefer to choose other door handles from that brand if you are especially happy with their quality and style. Building Supplies Online stocks door handles from trusted, high quality brands including Dale Hardware, Sywell, Ultimo, Thrornton, Varthen, Welford, Drayton, IDP Ironmongery, XL Joinery, and Hiatt Hardware. So you are sure to find the right door handles for you whichever brand you choose.

Do you want a latch pack encorporating door handles, door hinges, and locking mechanism?

If you are still unsure how you want to match your door furniture you can choose from a number of latch packs that include complementary door handles and other door furniture and ensure your internal doors will have a great look.

Following our guide to choosing your door handles you can then best choose from our extensive range of over 600 hundred products, available in all kinds of style, shape, material, and finish. You are sure to find the door handles to match your style and specifications.
