Door hardware comes in many different finishes and styles but there are three main types of interior door handles and knobs that are found on the market. Matching the correct type of door handle or knob will be fundamental in creating a finishing touch. The three main types are categorised as lever handle on backplate, lever handle on rose and mortice knobs. Lever handles on backplate are traditional door handles which sit on a backplate. Lever handles on rose are more contemporary door handles which sit on either a round or square rose and are much smaller than backplates. Lever Handle on Rose Lever handles on rose, or door handles, are most commonly used in residential houses and commercial and public buildings. Lever on Rose door furniture have concealed roses, which means the screws and fixing holes are hidden by a cover. If there is no desire for the door to lock, then the lever on rose is usually fitted with a standard tubular latch. If a door has the need to lock, then it would be necessary to fit with a key escutcheon and a sash lock. For a bathroom, that you may wish to lock without a key, you would need to purchase a Turn and Release along with a Bathroom Lock.
