How to choose door hardware

13th October 2020

Whether you’re renovating your home or updating an investment property, it’s important to make sure you consider all elements of your project. The choices you make from style and quality, to security and functionality can add significantly to the value, look and feel of your property. Each project is unique and so whether you have experience with interior design and renovations, or this is your first project, we encourage you to consider all your options before getting started, with the aim to complete a well thought out renovation or build.

Lemaar makes chosing and installing door hardware easy. Lemaar door handles are available in a ‘complete solution’ or range of matching styles from entry, passage and privacy door handles. 

The Lemaar range of door handles are available in the latest designs and colours and classic designs also. 


Style and interior design

The starting point for most is the overall design and style of the project. Be it classic, modern, scandi or minimalist, the finishes you choose will go a long way towards bringing your inspiration to life. 

Make sure you consider a wide range of products to ensure that the door hardware you choose fits seamlessly with your interior style and lifts the look of your home. 

And there are so many things to consider. Style, colour, finish, functionality and security. 


Colour and finish 

Colour and finish is an important consideration and should align with the overall style, design and colour palette of the project whilst also considering other elements such as tapware, kitchen cabinetry, and even interior window frames. Keep in mind that door hardware can blend in with other interior elements, but can also be used as feature in the home.  



Next to consider is the rosette, or the backplate of the handle that sits on the door. Rosettes provide the functional mechanisms, and also an opportunity to add a decorative finish. Rosettes are usually square or round.


The handle 

The handle itself should be considered firstly for functionality, then the design or look that you’re after. Handles are available as square or round, and either slimline or more solid profile.             


Security is mandatory. So, to keep your home and family safe, your choice in door hardware should be a top quality brand with a strong warranty. 

Choices are stand alone door entry handles, or handle with deadbolt. 

Other important considerations 

Fire ratings for door handles are important in many areas of Australia. Lemaar has fire rated products that also comply with Australia Fire Safety Door requirements. Haro DDA compliant fire rated door handle. 

Lemaar offers DDA compliant door handles designed specifically for ease of function for people with a disability.
