Do door knobs or levers have to match hinges?

Thursday, 19 September 2019 13:50:52 Europe/London

Do door knobs or levers have to match hinges?

At Atlantic UK, we firmly believe the finish matters. So much so, that we believe every item of hardware throughout an interior should match and coordinate in style, including hinges, latches, deadbolts, and even other items of ironmongery such as door stops and flush bolts!

Finishing an interior well involves attention to detail, and matching the colour of a hinge may seem like a small detail, but it will really 'complete the look'. When choosing a bold urban finish like Urban Satin Copper, a unique contrast is created with the door furniture. This is accentuated with the matching hinge and latches.

With some door hardware, a different texture may be chosen for a more practical reason. When Polished Chrome door handles or mortice knobs are chosen, Matt Black hinges and latches may be fitted as the matching accessories if the door colour is black. Matt Black, may be seen as a more practical alternative in this instance as hinges and latches would match the colour of the door.

In most people's opinions door hardware is a small thing, often overlooked amid major items like furniture and paint colours when designing an interior. But the power of hardware should not be underestimated.

Items like door handles, matching hinges & latches and other items or ironmongery can really add style and sparkle to any space and often seen as "the jewellery" of a space, says the New York-based interior designer Young Huh. Just like the right necklace can turn a simple dress into a fashion statement, a striking set of mortice knobs on an rustic door, or a crystal encrusted lever in a modern dwelling can bring an glamorous air of style to your home with minimal expense.

Why is it good to match ironmongery?

Why is it good to match ironmongery?

Door furniture really creates the finishing touch for any interior. We believe, wherever possible, door furniture throughout an interior setting should match and therefore create a harmonious conclusion to the design.

By matching, we don’t just mean colour and finish. We mean style also. Matching hardware to the interior's form and style is fundamental to creating a well-designed environment. Different rooms within interiors may have slight variations on a style that should be catered to for example bathrooms or kitchens. These rooms will often have other fixtures and fittings that would closing link to the door hardware and therefore play a part in determining the style chosen.

Matching door furniture may not all be the exact same finish & colour. A blend of variations on a colour may be chosen, for example satin chrome and polished chrome. This combination would create contrast and interest to an interior setting and yet keep consistency within the setting.

In certain interior's a combination of different types of door hardware. A popular choice currently is a combination of door lever handles and door knobs in different areas of the home. Some choose to use lever handles downstairs and knobs upstairs.

The functionality of door furniture also needs to be considered when choosing door hardware. Bathrooms and areas that need to be resistant to water are better suited to hardware made from certain metals such as stainless steel and chrome.

From modern blacks, satin chrome's and nickel's to rich bronze's there is something for every modern dwelling. Traditional interiors which are more suited to warm brass, antique copper's and distressed silver's also have exuberant ranges within the Atlantic portfolio.

With every item of hardware, we truly believe the finish matters.
