It's the finishing touches that bring a bedroom look together, so it's important that you pick the perfect handles to complement your beautiful new bedroom.

Handles are a bedroom feature that sometimes go overlooked, but the handles you choose to complement your bedroom decor could have a big impact on the overall look. The style, finish and material all come together to make a statement with your furniture and sometimes just changing up your handles can help breathe new life into a space.

To celebrate the brand-new introductions to our handle collection, with now over 150 beautiful styles to choose from, we’ve pulled together this guide to help you pick the best handles to accompany your new Kindred bedroom.

1. Finish

Gardiner of England handles come in a range of twelve different finishes, from bright Chrome and muted Nickel, to warming Copper and sleek Matt Black (check out the full range here). It’s important to consider which finish of handle will get the desired result you’re searching for. For example, a Matt Black handle against a Porcelain door is sure to create a striking, contemporary statement, but if it’s a sophisticated, classic look you’ve been dreaming of, a Stainless Steel or Antique Bronze finish would be more suited.

Another thing to consider is whether your finish needs to match or complement any other metals/finishes in the room, such as a bed frame or a light fitting. If you already have an Antique Bronze bed frame, you will have to decide which handles will best go alongside this, avoiding a clash of metals.

2. Style

The style of your room, your furniture choices and the overall style you want to portray should all be considered when picking your handles. Does your bedroom have a theme and does this need to match the feel of your whole home? If your decor is mainly modern with contemporary features, then it wouldn’t be fitting to decide on traditional handles or knobs, just as it wouldn’t suit a traditional space if you opted for a contemporary handle design.

3. Design

The design of your handle will not only determine aesthetic, it will also determine functionality. Our handles come in a wide selection of designs, from sophisticated bar handles and traditional cup handles, to industrial-style, knurled t-bar handles and crystal knob handles. In terms of functionality, you need to decide what design of handle you would find more accessible for your furniture. Do you prefer a bar handle or D handle, to provide more grip, or do you find a cup or knob handle more practical? You’re going to be opening and closing your wardrobe doors and drawers for years to come, so it’s important that you find a design that works well for you practically.

When it comes to aesthetic, some handles make a bigger statement than others due to their size, style or colour, so it’s important to consider how you want your design to appear in your bedroom. Do you want it to be eye-catching and bold? Do you want it to be a classic style that blends elegantly with your bedroom design? Do you want a selection of different handles that complement each other (for example, a D handle on your wardrobe doors and knobs on your drawers). Getting the balance right will mean you have handles that work effectively with your lifestyle and your tastes.
