These top tips from The Big Fitout will save you time and money when installing new door handles in your Dubai home!
When redesigning a home’s interior in Dubai, you’ll usually spend a lot of time on flooring, cabinetry, and furnishing.
However, you shouldn’t neglect the hardware in your home, especially the handles and knobs on your doors. With the multitude of choices available today, you can make selections that will add charm and elegance to your rooms.

Let’s get to it.
To enhance the look of a bathroom door, try something different. A crystal or ceramic doorknob will add a distinctive look. You can pair a clear or tinted crystal knob with a chrome base for a contemporary look or select something in crystal with a bronze base for a more traditional style. A white ceramic knob with a floral pattern will look beautiful with French country décor or rustic interiors or in any vintage-styled home. A ceramic doorknob in a bright color, or even multiple colors, makes a fun choice for a child’s bathroom.
For the doors to any bedroom, instead of a standard knob, try a gorgeous door lever instead. If your home has traditional décor, try a design in bright brass or an aged bronze for a sophisticated look. For contemporary homes, a lever in satin nickel or chrome will look fabulous and modern. With transitional décor, choose a design that combines the best of both traditional and contemporary styles, such as an oil-rubbed bronze lever. You can even select a crystal lever paired with a metal base in your choice of finishes for a dramatic glam look in your home.
An excellent choice for an office is a wooden doorknob. Though this might sound a bit dull, many different styles and types are available. You can select a maple or hickory wood for a casual look. Or choose a dark walnut or polished oak doorknob for a more luxurious appearance. You can also combine a wooden doorknob with a brass or chrome base to enhance the overall look. For a more custom appearance, and to highlight the entry into your office, choose a wooden knob with a gorgeous carved design.
Don’t settle for ordinary accents in your home, not even with your door handles and knobs. Choose designs that will reflect the style of your décor for a look that everyone will admire.
