Every year, doors and handle styles change as new styles are discovered, and old styles are rediscovered. Let’s look at some of the door handle styles predicted to be in vogue for 2023.
Understanding Door Hardware
If you're like most people, you think about the big picture: entryways, exterior and interior doors, window placement, dimensions, and even lighting. Then, you’ll consider the interior finishes and functionality, like kitchen and bathroom cabinets, flooring, and paint or wallpaper.
Still, most people forget about the door hardware, which includes the handles, hinges, and opening styles. The types and styles of door handles and hardware can increase or decrease your home's or commercial building's visual appeal.
Minimalism VS. Maximalism
We have good news to announce for 2023 trends. For years, we’ve seen a trend toward clean lines and simple design, known as minimalism. For the upcoming year, maximalism is making a comeback in home and business decor, which involves intricate designs and bolder colors to show off your true style.
If you want to think of these styles in door handle pulls, minimalism is foregoing door handle pulls in favor of carving a hand-sized notch inside the cabinet door. Maximalism is installing a filigree door handle powder-coated in a bright color to stand out against its background.
Best Door Handle Styles for 2023
The good news about minimalism and maximalism trending in 2023 is that you can pick from your favorite styles and mix and match them to create truly unique designs for your home or business.
Choosing the right finish is imperative because it often designates how easy or hard it will be to clean and whether fingerprints and dirt will show up immediately.
Satin finishes are always in style. This is because they’re easy to clean and hide fingerprints well. They work best with modern styles.
Matte finishes are commonly used with the color black. These are non-glossy, hide fingerprints well, and when chosen in black, they can be used with any interior and exterior color scheme.
Glossy finishes have a luxurious shine and smooth feel. Glossy door handles work well in high-end homes, apartments, condos, and luxury businesses. However, since glossy finishes, especially on metal, can produce a mirror-like finish, they need to be cleaned regularly to remove dirt and fingerprints that could distract from the style.
Chrome is in a class by itself. It’s timeless and trendy in homes and businesses that utilize a classic or mid-century design. It’s typically easy to clean and smooth to the touch.
In addition to thinking about the type of finish for your door handles, you’ll need to consider the shape. While most door handles are round, it’s not necessary to choose a handle shaped like a ball in 2023.
Squares and octagons are all the rage in 2023. Choosing a shape other than round can help add visual interest to the door.
Door handles that are actual handles are still in style, especially for homes and buildings where hand mobility may be an issue for the occupants. This is because they’re easy to operate by simply pushing down on the handle. The good news is that you’re not limited to the color silver. Reynaers Aluminium offers a full range of colors.
Round handles offer a classic look, feel and operation and never go out of style. To add interest to these handles, choose ones that have roses that are shaped differently than the knob.
The material you choose for your door handle can impact its look, feel, function, and sustainability. Popular choices for 2023 include aluminum, glass, wood, and copper.
Aluminum is a great choice for door handles. It’s timeless, durable, and sustainable, and it can be powder coated and finished in various colors. They can seamlessly blend in with windows, especially if you choose our Horizon handles.
Copper is a classic material and color. It’s exceptionally durable and can be purchased with coatings that prevent it from developing a patina, or it can be left natural. Copper is valued for its longevity and sustainability.
Glass is another timeless material that can be crafted into various shapes. It can also be manufactured in a variety of colors to contrast or match the door and existing décor.
Wood is an excellent choice for handles and pulls because it can be stained in various colors and formed into various shapes. Homeowners love wood because of its warm tones and the fact that it’s recyclable.
Another modern feature of interior and exterior doors involves adding magnetic contacts and sensors to improve the smartness of the door. With these contacts installed, you can use them with an IoT system to set or trigger alarms and improve the safety and security of your building.
When designing a building, it’s important to consider solutions for individuals with mobility issues. You can always choose a mechanized door with a zero threshold. These doors can be opened with the push of a button or via sensors, and the zero threshold option ensures that those who use wheelchairs, walkers, and canes can move through the doorway easily.
