Decorate Your Doors with Decor Handles' Door Handles

Door handles are a great way to update your home. However, there are a ton of options out there for door handles and it can be hard to choose. In addition, the different types of door handles have different pros and cons (some are easier to install, and some look better). So here is our quick guide on all things door handle related!


Levers are the most common type of door handle and can be found on a variety of different door types. They are usually used in public areas, but they can also be found in private homes. For example, most modern kitchens are equipped with lever handles because they’re easy to use (and your hands probably touch them more than any other surface in the house). Levers are made of metal or plastic and come in different styles and sizes. You might also see levers that have been shaped like a lion's head or an eagle’s talon—these fun designs add personality to a space while still being functional!

Pull Handles

Pull handles are the most common type of door handle, and they come in many shapes and sizes. They're often used in bathrooms and kitchens, but also have their place as a pull handle in any room. The most popular designs are privacy sets (the kind with the triangle on them) or tubular latches (the kind where you can't see the latch when it's closed).

Door Handles on Plate

Door handles on the plate are a popular choice for many people. The handles on a plate are often used on doors that are frequently used. They are usually made from brass or chrome and they can come in many different shapes and styles.

The door handle is designed to match the size of the door knob that it's paired with. For example, if you have a small wooden door with an 8" diameter, you might choose a handle that has an 8" diameter as well; this will allow both items to look proportional when they're used together in your home or business property.

Control Door Knobs 

Control door knobs are a type of knob that has been used in homes, businesses and other areas for many years. These knobs can be found on the front doors of most houses, as well as on some interior doors such as closets and bathrooms. There are two main types of control door knobs: single cylinder and double cylinder.

A single-cylinder control door knob has a locking mechanism inside the knob itself, while the double cylinder is controlled by two separate cylinders inside the handle. Each type has its own set of benefits and disadvantages when it comes to security or convenience:

Entrance Grip Handle Sets

Door handles for sliding doors are generally easier to use than those on non-hinged doors. They usually consist of a push plate with an attached lever handle or a plate that pushes with an integral handle.

Easy to clean and maintain, door handles for sliding doors are available in various finishes and styles to match any décor. They are commonly used in homes or businesses where there is limited wall space or where security is paramount (e.g., military bases).

Tubular Latches and Privacy Sets

The tubular latch is more commonly used on bathroom and bedroom doors. It's a simple design and it comes in many different colours, so you can customise your door handle to match the rest of your room. The privacy sets are used for closet doors or any other type of door that needs an extra layer of security or privacy.

Stainless Steel Door Handles 

Stainless steel is the most popular type of door handle for good reason. It's strong and durable, making it ideal for high-traffic areas.  Plus, you can find a colour or finish that matches your décor without spending a fortune. 

However, if you live in an area with harsh winters or do not take care of your home well, it may not be the best choice for you because it can quickly rust over time. Brass and bronze both have this problem as well, which means they're best suited for coastal homes or properties where you can keep them dry regularly.

Royal Antique Door Handles 

Royal antique door handles are another type that can add a touch of elegance to your home. These handles are made from high-quality materials and are designed to last for years. Antique styles of door handles are typically made from heavy brass or bronze and are designed to replicate an old style. They come in many different designs but often have a more ornate look than other types of handles. They also offer some nice colour options so you'll be able to find something that suits the rest of your decorating scheme. 

Door Handles on Rose 

Rose door handles are a popular choice for those looking for a traditional and elegant option. These handles are usually made from brass or bronze and feature a decorative rose on the centre of the handle. Rose door handles can be used on both interior and exterior doors and can be matched with other brass hardware for a coordinated look.  They come in different shapes and sizes, depending on what style you prefer. 

Concealed Door Handles 

These work in much the same way as traditional door handles, but they hide or conceal a portion of their latch inside their handle. This gives your home a sleek, modern look while maintaining functionality and protection from outside elements. Depending on what you prefer, there are lots of different styles and designs available for these, such as single and double pulls that use opposing latches that allow you to push on one side or pull from either side of your door. 

Other options include pivot handles that mount directly onto an existing surface with a pivoting hole for your latch as well as enclosed access handles. This can be used by those who live with small children or pets because it prevents little fingers from getting stuck in gaps between components.
