Traditional home decor tips from Handles4Doors

Period homes which are sympathetically restored to reflect their age and beauty are a joy to behold. Their designs are many and varied and the true beauty of the interior will often only be brought out by the style and quality of the finishing touches. Now, Handles4Doors, the leading supplier of door handles, door hinges and door locks offer both advice and a range of home decor items perfect for those people who own or look after a period property.

The three main styles of traditional property that Handles4Doors specialise in are period beamed cottages, Georgian townhouses and English country houses. Each of these styles of property has a different but very individual requirement for door and window furniture to accentuate their specific interior features.

Period beamed cottages, for example, tend to have an interior made from simple natural materials which exude warmth and comfort. The original wooden windows and old solid wood doors make this type of building the perfect backdrop for black antique or rustic handforged waxed door and window furniture. A period cottage particularly suits 'fleur de lys', 'gothic' and 'curly tail' designs for doors and windows and black antique or rustic T hinges, door studs and thumb latch sets complete the look on old and mellow wooden doors.

Suzanne Faulkner, Managing Director of the company who specialise in cupboard knobs and window furniture said "Elegant Georgian townhouses are synonymous with elegant large sash windows, panelled doors, picture rails, cornicing and ornate plasterwork. Exquisite furniture and interior fittings give these properties a classic timeless appeal and we recommend solid, traditional English manufactured brassware as this creates a sumptuous feeling of high quality as well as accentuating the simple, clean lines of the Georgian interior."

The impressive interior of the large English country house is just the setting for classic, beautifully made mortice knob sets. Manufactured in England using superior engineering methods and available in a range of beautiful finishes, such as imperial bronze and antique brass, this style complements the most traditional of interiors.

Mrs Faulkner added, "Handles4Doors stock a wide range of door and window furniture which are perfect for anyone who wants to give their period property the perfect traditional feel. Whatever type of period property you have we have door handles, knobs, light switches, sash lifts and other beautifully crafted designs that will perfectly complement your home."

Whatever sort of handles, knobs or door fittings you are looking for - whether it is for a cupboard, a front door or a wardrobe - Handles4Doors can handle it.
