There are several different types of handles available, each with it’s own purpose and favoured location.

Types of door handles:

Pull handle – a bit of a self explanatory name, the pull handle is a handle used to pull open doors and are available in a wide range of materials and finishes.

Flush pulls – these are handles that sit inside a groove, sitting flush in a door. These are commonly used for interior sliding doors such as cupboards, wardrobes and some ensuites.

Doorknob – one of the most common types of door handles, a doorknob is a circular knob that is twisted to open a door. These are popular for both interior doors made from timber materials and exterior doors made from metal materials.

Door levers – these are handles that are pushed down to open a door. These are easier to grip than doorknobs and can be better for older wrists or those with arthritis. These are typically made from metal materials.

Entrance handle – specifically designed for exterior doors and entranceways, entrance handles are large, sturdy and high quality handles that are built to battle the elements. These can also be found on the inside of an exterior door, or just the outside. These work exactly the same as a pull handle but are built to last.

The style of door handle is also something to consider. If your home currently has metal handles and other fittings, it’s probably best to maintain consistency.

However, don’t let this guide stop you from being creative – any type of handle can be used in whatever situation you choose!
