A front door handle is an important piece of hardware that adds both security and style to the main entrance of your home. Because it is such a crucial component there are many options out there to choose from. Some factors you should consider when picking out your new door handle include what type of appearance you like, what style of handle you prefer, and what type of lock you need or want. Door handles come in a wide variety of styles and finishes to complement any entry design. Naturally all of them are made of metal, but with variations ranging in style from classic to contemporary, and finishes including bronze, chrome, copper, nickel, and pewter veneers, there is still ample room to make a design statement.

When it comes to choosing hardware for the front door, there are many different options in terms of exterior door handle types. A few of the most popular design styles for entry door knobs include knob, lever, thumb-latch, and dummy door handles. The knob is just what it sounds like, a traditional door knob shape, made to be used on a main entry door. Lever handles consist of a horizontal lever to operate the mechanism, and are frequently seen as hardware on interior doors as well. Thumb latch handles are the type of handle that have a longer vertical grip mounted to the door with a small protruding button that you push down on to open the latch. This style is a traditional choice for a front entry as their larger appearance makes a bold design statement for a grand entry. Dummy door handles are another option that can come with the appearance of any of the other styles of handle, but function only as a push handle.

The large majority of front door handles also come with a matching lock to keep your home secure. However, there are a couple of different types of locks, and if you are replacing existing hardware it can be important to choose one that matches the existing holes. A tubular lock is the most common type of exterior door lock, consisting of a solid metal cylinder that slides into an inset hole in the doorframe. This style of lock, also frequently referred to as a deadbolt is the most popular type of latch in new construction due to its combination of price, function, and ease of installation. A mortise lock is a style of bolt that requires a “mortise cut” or pocket to be drilled into the door itself. This lock style is all one enclosed piece, as opposed to the separate latch and deadbolt of the tubular style. And while this makes it more secure than a tubular lock, the mortise is less popular because it can cost much more, and the shape of it usually requires a professional locksmith to properly install it, as the process requires specialized tools.
