Choosing Door Handles to Suit Your Home Interior Style

Choosing Door Handles to Suit Your Home Interior Style


Choosing the right door handles to suit your interior style at home is an important task. Door handles are a vital part of the aesthetic of your home and can add character to any room. Whether it is a new build or some home redecoration, it is essential that every detail works in harmony to create your ideal interior space. Even choosing between a door handle and door knob, or a lever on rose and a lever on plate, can significantly impact your interior style.

Here in this blog, we discuss the many types of door handles within our Fortessa Door Handle Range to help you decide what will suit your home the best.

A Warm and Timeless Interior

The secret to a warm and timeless interior design lies in finding the perfect balance between different styles and combining them in a practical and meaningful way for your home. Polished Brass is ideal if you want to create a warm space in your home.

Fortessa Verto and Fortessa Bulbus are available in a Polished Brass finish and both are distinctive and stylish door levers that underwent specialist lacquer treatments to provide high resistance to shocks and abrasions. This will help to maintain their natural shine long into the future.

An Elegant, Modern Touch

Achilles & Wave are two distinctive and stylish door handles to suit any modern interior. The curved lever of the Fortessa Achilles handle is both sophisticated and elegant, while the Wave handle has a more subtle elegance to it.

A Traditional Look

Traditional interior design is just what it sounds like — a classic, warm, comforting, familiar home décor style rooted in traditions without being restricted to any period. A lever on plate door handle is the perfect match for traditional home interiors. Fortessa Versailles and Fortessa Royal are the perfect finishing touches for a traditional look. Versailles offers a chunky lever on a rounded plate, while Royal is a more compact option with door lever on a rectangular plate.
