Ironmongery may be the last thing you consider for your beautifully crafted joinery, but it’s an important finishing touch to complement those doors, windows, cabinets and other projects.

The designs and materials available for door handles, hinges, locks and latches will leave you spoilt for choice.

Do you go for a contemporary or classic look, shiny chrome or polished brass, rustic or industrial? Balancing the need for security with appearance is part of the decision.

It does all come down to personal preference but it helps to do some research, see what’s available and what styles appeal before you make your choice.

It is advisable to opt for ironmongery that reflects the style of the window or door that you have chosen. So a Georgian style door for a period home, for example, will suit a certain look. Trends in interior design change all the time so why not complement them with your choice of ironmongery.

The range of materials include brass, chrome, wrought iron, acrylic, aluminium, stainless steel, porcelain and glass so you should find something you like. As a general rule, chrome, nickel and stainless steel will fare better outside than other finishes like polished brass.

It is the fine details that can really help to add a premium finish, so it’s worth taking time to consider what ironmongery is best for you and your home.

Making the choice can be daunting, so please ask the experts in the joinery team working on your project for guidance. They have the experience and will be happy to help.
