The Best Door Handles for Your Home
One of the most exciting parts of being a homeowner is the freedom to renovate the rooms in your house so they better suit your personality. From a remodeled living room to a new kitchen, the only limits are your budget and your time.
When designing an area of your house, it’s likely that you’re looking at the big picture. From paint colours to flooring and countertops, it’s not uncommon to miss the little things that bring a room together when taking on a large renovation project.
However, it’s the small touches that make a big difference in any room and one of the best ways to bring charm into your house is by investing in high-quality door handles. While most people spend a lot of their budget on the larger parts of their renovation, it’s important to set some money aside for the signature pieces that help each room stand apart.
Door handles are a timeless addition to any space because they add an extra bit of character and elegance that everyone is going to interact with. They also help bring a room together by supporting a specific theme or design choice.
Our Door Handles
Here at Grace and Glory Home, our door handles perfectly match any room’s style or personality. From metals like brass and nickel, to forged metal, each of our door handles is expertly crafted to surpass your expectations.
The following information will give you a better idea of the type of door handle that will suit your needs:

Forged Metal Lever Handles
Transform your doorway with one of our forged metal levers. Available in both pewter and black, our metal handles bring an old world charm to your door with their sturdy constructive and gothic design.
Who Will Be Using the Door Handle
When you’re deciding on which handle to install, it’s a good idea to think about who’s going to use the door most often. If the door handle is going on a child’s room, then you’re probably going to want to find a durable and easy to use product.
This amount of thought also applies to bathroom doors and younger children. It’s the doors you don’t want children to open where you need to install a harder to use handle. Some examples of these types of doors include the basement, or the front and back exterior doors.
Another factor to take into account, especially with young children, is choosing a handle that’s easy to clean. Whether in a daycare or a school, children have a lot of germs on them that can be transmitted through door handles.
A study of hospital doors found that brass impedes the growth of bacteria and will disinfect itself after several hours. This means that this material is a great choice for door handles for bathroom doors and in children’s rooms.
Is A Lock On Every Door Necessary
External doors should always have a lock equipped in them. Most homeowners use a deadbolt lock on their outside doors to protect from unwanted guests or intruders. Storm doors usually come built with a smaller lock to prevent entry into a sunroom or other external area connected to the house.
Interior door locks are usually less secure than outside doors with deadbolts, and are usually installed on bathroom and bedroom doors. Having a lock on bedroom doors can be risky in emergency situations or if you need to access your child’s room for any reason.
When it comes to deciding on door locks, there are a number of considerations you should think about. From the placement of the door, to safety and access, it’s important that you take your time before installing locks.
Complete Your Home with an Elegant Door Handle
When you’re planning to renovate or remodel your home, you should always remember the small details. A room is made up of more than just walls, floors, and ceilings. By taking the little touches into account, you’ll transform a house into a home.

Helpful Tips To Help Disinfect Brass Door Knobs
People carry a lot of germs on their hands, and whenever they touch an object a lot of those germs spread to it. Of course door knobs aren’t an exception to this rule and can become filled with bacteria causing sickness.
If you decide that brass door knobs are the perfect choice for your door, we have some advice to help you keep your family and friends healthy and happy when they come for a visit.
As we’ve discussed, brass has the ability to disinfect itself after several hours have passed, reducing the number of germs found on the surface of your door knob. However, to make sure that your product is able to perform this function, you need to remove the coating applied by the manufacturer.
When you buy a brass door knob it has a special coating already on it that helps the product retain it’s shiny design. To take advantage of the disinfecting agents of the brass, you’ll need to strip off this coating by applying paint thinner to the door knob.
Types of Door Knobs

What is Vintage Brass
Vintage brass, or antique brass, is a metal that has been treated to look as though its over 100 years old. Often distinguished by an almost copper-like appearance and tarnish, this metal is crafted to showcase a style set in an older time.
One of the interesting aspects of vintage brass is the detail work that goes into each door knob. From intricate designs to breathtaking patterns, the metal has been expertly crafted to appeal to any homeowner.
Choosing Brass for Your Home
The reason that so many people decide to use brass for their door knobs is because the metal is fairly easy to keep clean and it lasts for a long time. Also, as you can see from our catalogue of door knobs, there are a number of diverse products to choose from.
While each of the items is made from brass, the design of the door knobs are as unique as you are. Whether you want a modern product or something more vintage, each of our door knobs are crafted with durability and quality in mind.
Aesthetic aside, the other advantage to using brass is the disinfecting nature of the metal. Used in hospitals and nursing homes, the germs and bacteria found on the surface of brass is drastically reduced when compared to other materials. This disinfection process takes several hours, but makes your door knob much cleaner than competing models.
How To Care For Your Vintage Brass Door Knobs
Over time, oxidation and other chemical changes can take place in brass and other metals. When this occurs, the brass develops a unique sheen or patina, which looks nice on antique brass because it makes the metal appear more vintage.
Once you have your brass door knobs installed, you’ll want to make sure you know how to maintain their unique appearance. Using the wrong cleaning method can damage the brass and remove the patina, which is what helps give the metal that antique look.
The most effective way to clean your door knobs is to wipe them down with vinegar or lemon juice. These solutions are gentle enough that they won’t damage the metal, but will still clean the surface.
Avoid using cleaning products which contain caustic acids or ammonia because these chemicals will erode the metal and can destroy any details in your door knobs. You can use commercial cleaners, however, you have to be careful not to scrub or polish the door knob too hard.
Buying Vintage Brass Door Knobs
If you decide to purchase a vintage brass door knob you need to remember that the metal shouldn't be shiny or have a lacquered finish. Unlike modern brass, if your vintage door knob has this polished appearance it’s not authentic.

The History of Beehive Door Knobs
Beehive door knobs became very popular when it was first designed in the Regency era. This sort of metalwork was also very fashionable during the Victorian period, well into the 20th century.
When this style was first manufactured, the beehive door knob consisted of rings that ran along its length. This design wasn’t only meant to be decorative, but was functional because of the superior grip it offered of the door knob because of the reeding details.
