Choosing Ironmongery? Q&A's

Thursday, 25 June 2020 10:47:42 Europe/London



Door Hardware may be considered as a minor decision when building or updating your home, however, door hardware enhances any space, when the finish is chosen correctly.

The wrong choice of ironmongery can be distracting and deter from other beautiful design selections within your home.

Can I mix different finishes within my house?

Yes, mixing finish is considered acceptable, on the condition that the finishes coordinate rather than clash with each other. This would mean that the colour temperature is maintained the same, just as you would with paint or other finishing's.

When mixing finishes it is generally considered that no more than two or three finishes per space should be used, and those finishes should ideally be used within at least two or three areas within the space. That way, each metal finish has a coordinating partner in the same space.

Contrasting finishes may be used to create a dynamic with punch. The main thing is to make sure the mix looks intentional instead of haphazard.

Does my colour palette influence my ironmonger choice?

Yes, to some extend your colour palette should influence your ironmongery choice. If your existing or desired colour palette is warmer colours, then we would recommend you choose warmer finishes like Polished Brass, Antique Copper, Urban Satin Copper, and variations of Bronze finishes. For a more subtle warmth, options like Satin Nickel and Polished Nickel could be chosen.

If your palette is cooler, we would recommend opting for Chrome finishes. Matt Black is an option that would suit well for a bolder result.

I think of my hardware as jewellery of the houseā€¦ How do I create this statement?

If you are like us and love hardware and want your ironmongery to make a statement, you will need to choose hardware that contrasts with the door that they are situated on. Consider using darker finishes like Matt Black, Matt Gun Metal, or Urban Bronze on white or light coloured doors. For darker finish doors, use finishes like Polished Nickel, Satin Nickel, Satin Brass, or Polished/Satin Chrome.

I regard my hardware as functional, not decorative, and don't want a statement... What should I choose?

If you don't think of your hardware as decorative, purely functional, you may want your ironmongery to blend into the doors they are situated on, rather than standing out. In this case, you may want to choose more subtle hardware.

If your doors are darker choose darker hardware (blacks, bronzes, or greys). If you have lighter or white cabinets choose silver or light hardware (polished/satin chrome/nickel, Satin brass)

Another way of making a statement is by choosing a larger scale or oversized hardware for the item it is fitted too. Larger levers are also a benefit as they are easier to use for elderly people and children.

Satin Nickel

Thursday, 28 May 2020 12:19:41 Europe/London





Satin Nickel, with its soft metallic look, is growing in popularity. Its soft silvery hues and ability to stand out yet blend in seamlessly with most interiors makes it a firm favourite with designers.

It is a highly durable finish, lasting longer than a live finish or polished chrome. It is less likely to wear and doesn't show finger prints or water spots.

Its ease to keep clean is also seen as a massive plus point.


Satin Nickel can look great with chrome and is easy to match with other accessories and fixtures.

Our Manufacturing Process

Thursday, 14 May 2020 08:52:18 Europe/London




Here at Atlantic, taking care of people and their environments is regarded very seriously. At every stage of our manufacturing process, being socially wear and protecting the environment is critical.

The Ecotech manufacturing process used to finish our Forme Italian products, is an innovative method using nanotechnology. It is a coating that takes place in a vacuum environment. This proceeding is characterised by a dry, cold and whiteout chemical finishing process. This pollution free manufacturing technology produces negligible waste, and minimal energy is used to produce a finish that is strong, durable and environment friendly.

In contrast, electroplating or galvanization involves toxic chemicals. These procedures are harmful to the environment and potentially harmful to personnel. The production costs and health inspections required, the huge use of water and electricity to maintain a standard production plant are almost 10 times that of Ecotech.
