While the architectural ironmongery budget of a new or renovated home can add up to a fair percentage of the overall building budget, a new set of door or cupboard handles can also give a room or home a magical facelift.

Bildware’s capable showroom assistants can assist you in formulating a budget based on the plans for your home and the style you want to create.

Here are some helpful hints to keep in mind the next time your purchase handles:

  • Solid brass handles that are plated to different finishes are more durable
