Choose the right handles for your bathroom
A bathroom ought to merge functionality with beauty, creating a harmonious and inviting space. The selection of cabinet handles, though seemingly minute, can be the finishing touch that perfects its ambiance.
After selecting your bathroom furniture, it's time to refine the look by adding the perfect cabinet handles as a finishing touch.
When choosing these handles, keep in mind these three essential considerations:
- What style are you aiming for?
- What complements your bathroom furniture?
- Which handle is most user-friendly for you?
Different types of bathroom handles
There are many different types of handles available for bathrooms. We have gathered the variants here:
Enhance the style of your bathroom
When envisioning a particular aesthetic for your bathroom, the right handles can enhance and epitomize that look, be it modern, classic, romantic, or any other distinctive style.
For instance, knob handles seamlessly pair with the Sense bathroom model, amplifying its delightful French-inspired charm.
The small details bring joy
A bathroom adorned in white hues and natural elements offers a pristine canvas. Introducing metallic-colored handles can beautifully disrupt the pure lines, adding a touch of elegance. Pairing dark bathroom furniture with brass cabinet handles, on the other hand, exudes a contemporary flair.
For a cohesive aesthetic, consider harmonizing the material and hue of your cabinet handles with elements like your mixer tap, drain plug, shower frame, soap dispenser, and other accessories. This unity in design details elevates the overall ambiance of the space.
Functionality and aesthetics
must work together
When crafting your bathroom design, balancing functionality with aesthetics is crucial. True well-being emanates from a harmonious blend of the practical and the visually pleasing.
From a functionality perspective, it's vital to match the handle size to the dimensions and weight of your doors and drawers. Petite knob handles are ideal for lighter doors, whereas heavier drawers benefit from longer, sturdier cabinet handles to ensure ease of use and longevity.
For those aiming for a sleek, minimalist aesthetic in their bathroom, considering handle-less furniture is a commendable choice. This design direction not only streamlines the appearance but also lets other design elements—like striking floor and wall tiles or impactful colour schemes—take centre stage, ensuring an undistracted and refined overall impression.
The VH-7 concept is built around a single grip track that is available in multiple colours and can be mounted both horizontally and vertically.
The Tendens and Tendens Veneer models are exclusive designs where the door handles are elegantly milled into the front.
Model Next is a popular choice for the bathroom. The lacquered doors have horizontal grip grooves that are milled into the doors.
Does your bathroom need a freshening up?
Swapping out handles is a cost-effective and straightforward method to rejuvenate your cabinets and drawers. This seemingly minor change can remarkably transform the overall ambiance, giving your bathroom the refreshing update it might crave.
Additionally, introducing a chic mirror, plush towels, or verdant plants are other economical strategies to infuse freshness and vitality into your bathroom space.
Install your bathroom handles yourself
Switching out bathroom handles is a straightforward task. Typically secured with screws, all you'll need is a screwdriver to manage the replacement on your own.
One crucial consideration when selecting new handles is ensuring they align with the existing holes from the old ones. This ensures your doors or cabinets remain undamaged and the transition is seamless.
