If you are in the process of ordering new doors, it is not enough to decide upon the wood and design of the door, it is also important to consider the ironmongery needed. A lot of decisions need to be made concerning the ironmongery, or hardware as it is also called, including size, material, price and design.
The three things you need to consider when purchasing hardware are: functionality, style and finish. If you order a modern, designer door handle that is difficult to open, then it isn’t functional. The style you choose must fit in with your decor and of course complement the new doors, it’s a good idea to compare styles, as different styles can completely change the look of the door. The finish is another factor that can affect the look of the doors, you have different colours, shiny or matt, don’t forget it has to complement the style as well as the door!
Good hardware is functional and stylish. Quality hardware and ironmongery can totally transform doors and windows and produce a stunning aesthetic for your living space. Door ironmongery should be both functional and decorative for interior and exterior doors. Ironmongery items include handles, hinges, locks, front door furniture and other accessories.
Ironmongery was traditionally the production of iron goods, but today the meaning has expanded to mean all metal products and even plastic. Today products are made in nickel, stainless steel, chrome, brass, porcelain and even upvc and nylon.
There is a wide range of materials, colours and designs and styles to suit every taste. By personalising your doors with quality ironmongery that reflects your own style, you are making a bold statement about the style of your home, making it as individual as you.
