Decor Handles: handles or knobs?

Hardware such as handles and knobs are often overlooked, but these components play a crucial role – not only in the functioning of doors but also in the overall look of your home, adding that finishing touch to a room.

When it comes to choosing door handles, there are several factors to consider: Do you want handles or knobs? What style of door hardware do you want? Which hardware finishes should you choose?

Luckily, the expert team from Decor Handles can help. Here they share how to choose the perfect door handle for your home.


Deciding on new internal door hardware can be challenging, so start by evaluating your home’s overall style.

Handles with clean lines and contemporary curves or a sleek, geometric design are best suited to modern homes, while classic designs in warm, aged metal finishes are better suited to traditional homes.

For a striking contemporary design, try the Neptune Handles – Slim Cupboard Handles in Matt Black. A classic design that fits perfectly with almost every decor style is the Oval Solid Brass Knob.

Knobs vs handles

Both knobs and handles come in a range of styles, from classic and traditional to bold and contemporary. A classic, knobs are a timeless choice. They offer a discreet look and work well in both classic and modern settings, adding a touch of elegance.

Handles, on the other hand, are a more modern choice. The addition of levers makes them easier to operate, providing a better grip that’s particularly beneficial for individuals with mobility issues.


From matte black to shiny chrome, brushed gold and beautiful rose gold, door hardware comes in a variety of finishes, which means you are sure to find a design perfectly suited to your style.

On-trend options currently include satin and matte finishes, like the Entrance Grip Handle with Dead Bolt – Satin Nickel and Italian Matt Black Lever Door Handle on Round Rose “Roboquattro series by Columbo Designs, as well as warm metal finishes such as the Straight Victorian Lever Handle on Plate and Georgian Knob on Back Plate. Designs with unique finishes and combinations, such as the Two-tone Designer Lever Handle on Rose, are also popular.

Decor Handles stocks a wide selection of premium door handle designs – placing luxury within your grasp.
