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:


Brass and Nickel Lever Handles

Our brass lever door handles are perfectly designed for both interior and exterior use. You’ll love our sleek Codsall lever handles with round rose brass with it’s elegant aesthetic and soft feel. If you prefer a period piece, we have our reeded lever handle made with an aged brass or nickel that will have visitors talking.  


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.

We have a large selection of brass door knobs for any style of house. Whether for internal or external use, our products are the perfect way to add a little charm to any door. You can choose from a beehive design, a Burcot swirl, or a cottage door look for your brass door knob.


For the more adventurous homeowners, we have a Georgian square model that stands out from the rest. You could also choose from one of our Regency style Bloxwich products to add extra charm to your entranceways.    


Why Choose Brass for Door Knobs

As we mentioned above, brass door knobs are an excellent choice for a number of reasons. Not only does this material look nice on a variety of doors, but brass is also more sanitary than other types of wood or metal.


Our selection of brass door knobs is second to none, providing a wide range of options to suit any style. Whether you’re interested in a modern design or something more traditional, we have the perfect product for your home.  


Deciding the Best Material for Your Door Knob

When you’re trying to decide on the best finish or material for your door knob there are a lot of considerations to take into account. From the design of your entranceway to the character of your room, you need to think carefully on which product will be the best for your needs.


For example, if your preferences lean towards a traditional style you would be wise looking at one of our nickel or brass beehive door knobs. Both of these items have a classic design that is perfectly suited for a room filled with vintage furniture and breathtaking antiquities.


If you’re a homeowner who enjoys the more contemporary style of design, we recommend looking at our rosewood beehive knobs with nickel collars. You might also be pleased with a statement piece, like our hand forged round pewter door knobs.


When it comes to deciding on the perfect door knob for your home, you need to think about your personality and the design you want your house to have. If you have any questions about our products or choosing a door knob, our team of experts are always here to help.


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

We carry a large selection of door knobs that are made from a number of different materials. While brass is always a popular choice for homeowners, we also carry products crafted from nickel, wood, glass, and ceramic.


To help you decide which door knob material is right for your home, read the descriptions below:

One of the best parts of choosing a vintage style for your door knob is that there are so many products to select from. From our popular Georgian square rose door knobs to our Regency style bloxwich design, there are a number of wonderful items to browse through and purchase.


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.


To make sure that you get the product you’re looking for, you should always research the door knobs you plan to buy prior to making the purchase. At Grace & Glory Home, all of our items are guaranteed to surpass your expectations and add that extra charm to any room in your home.


We believe that door knobs are investments into your home, and we know that you’ll be pleased with your purchase when you choose one of our products. Unlike other providers, our selection of vintage door knobs are unique for any style you prefer.

Our Beehive Door Knobs

Our line of beehive door knobs have always been popular because of their unique design and signature circular pattern. From contemporary to traditional, the soft lines perfectly accent any home or room.  


One of the best aspects of the beehive products is that they’re available in a number of different styles, colours, and compositions. At Grace & Glory Home, we carry beehive door knobs made from brass, nickel or wood. With each of these materials having a unique appeal over the other.


Easily identified by the elegant rings that surround the door knob, the beehive design is the perfect way to greet visitors as they enter your house or move into a new area of your home.  


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.


During the Regency and Victorian eras, using a beehive design represented class and elegance. Due to the beautiful nature of the metalwork, these door knobs would be reserved for the more significant areas of a house, or installed on front doors.


Brass Or Nickel Beehive Door Knobs?

When it comes to these antique door knobs, you can find them in many different styles, however, the most common materials is either brass or nickel. In addition to these materials, we also carry beautiful wooden beehive door knobs.


To help you decide which composition is best for your home, check out the following information from our team of experts:


Brass Door Knobs

From aged brass to coloured aged brass, our brass beehive door knobs are available in a variety of designs. You can also choose to purchase these products unlacquered, which means that the door knob colour will naturally darken over time.


The aged brass collar and rose come in either a dark black finish or a tortoise wood colour. One of the biggest appeals to choosing an aged brass beehive door knob is that it provides an antique aesthetic that draws together different design elements in a room or house.


Another advantage to selecting brass beehive door knobs is that metal is able to disinfect itself in several hours, resulting in less germs on the surface. This self-cleaning characteristic makes brass door knobs a great addition to any home.

Available in both a silver or ebony colour, there’s nothing quite like the feel of a solid nickel door knob under your hand as you enter a room.

One of the biggest benefits to choosing a nickel door knob is that it’s able to match with most styles and colour palettes, regardless of your preferences.
