  • Handles4doors Employees are a Great Team! Meet our Happy Chappy Warehouseman

    Have you Ever Met Someone who has a Lasting Impression on you?

    Nigel Our happy chappy Nigel!

    Nigel is one of our employees who leaves a great impression on you! He is our warehouse man and is our memorable happy chappy employee! Nigel is renowned for his jokes (sometimes I'm not sure if he’s getting to a punchline or a real story).  He is an amazing packer and always manages to get our products out to customers in great shape.  Jokes aside, he is one of our most loyal employees, who has been with our company for nearly 8 years.

    He is always in great spirits and is more than happy to have his picture taken. So why am I sharing this information on our warehouse comedian?  Well,  everybody needs a Nigel in their lives!  Hearing the interaction with Nigel and our delivery drivers cracks us up.  The other day I went to leave the office, and he was ducking down below the driver's window.  "Nigel,  what are you doing?" Nigel replied with, “He told me to kneel?”  No Nigel, that’s the driver's name!  It never stops!  Easter is always a good time for Nigel as there are a lot of 'eggcellent ' jokes to crack!  Sorry, couldn’t help myself;   I'll stop now and leave the jokes to Nigel!

    The Rest of the Employees! 

    Our team now consists of 8 employees.  Graham and Suzanne are the Founders and Directors of the Company.  They are passionate about the company and employees, often providing treats or lunch to keep smiles on faces!  

    Mike, our purchasing assistant has been with the company for a year last month.  Suzanne ordered some pizzas to celebrate, along with some jokes from Nigel of course!  Mike is always very willing to help, and really enjoys being out in the warehouse with Nigel.  The only downside is that he is starting to pick up Nigel's 'cringeworthy' jokes and loves to tell his own versions in the office!

    Pauline is our office manager, our super speedy, hard grafter, who is passionate about her job dealing with all matters financial.  She always arrives early in the morning and goes home late.  A backlog of work on her desk after a 2-week holiday is bliss to her!  

    Jake is our newest and youngest employee (just sweet 19), taking on a customer service role dealing with Handles4doors calls and enquiries.  He is our go-to guy for anything computer-related too and has the job of adding our mountain of products to the website.

    Naomi is our newly-appointed SEO Executive who works closely with Suzanne, managing and maintaining the website and taking care of our digital marketing.  She also is a fabulous make-up artist in her spare time.

    Technical Sales Employees

    Tony has been with the company for 8 years. His position is in Technical Sales, and he is very knowledgeable, amiable and patient.  He is a great team-player and our customers seem to think very highly of him indeed.

    Arthur is our fellow American chap!   Having joined us 4 years ago, Arthur brings the American charm to the office, along with the bagel cutter and American sayings and phrases. Arthur works alongside Tony and Graham in Technical Sales and is usually the first one in the office!

    Tony, Arthur and Graham also work in the showroom at our Trade Counter, when they hear our trusty counter bell.  They all love helping customers and meet some real characters who really make their day!

    Come and Meet our Employees!

    So I thought I would give you all an insight into our working family. You never know, you may want to join us one day.  Pop into our showroom for a chat, or to listen to one of Nigel's great jokes!  Either way, we love to meet new people, so pop into our showroom to have a nosey at us all, and have a cheeky biscuit (if Graham hasn't eaten all of them!)

  • British Made Door Handles by Turnstyle Designs

    Turnstyle Designs We deal with a large amount of manufacturers, and today I want to talk to you about our British Made Door Handles by Turnstyle Designs.  They are  located in beautiful Devon. Turnstyle Designs was founded by Steve Roberts in 1992.  He started in a small barn designing and producing a small range of door knobs.  A comprehensive range of British made door handles and other products are now available to view at the Turnstyle Designs showroom in Chelsea Harbour in London.

    25 years later, Steve still runs the business which has now grown to become one of the foremost producers of design-led door and cabinet hardware in the world.  Turnstyle have always provided the highest level of service.  It has the enviable reputation of manufacturing the most innovative, unique and beautiful products.  These British made door handles and other products by Turnstyle Designs are supplied to some of the most prestigious private and commercial yachts and buildings around the world.

    Attention to Detail

    A door handle, to Turnstyle, is like a button on a coat which has to function properly as well as look really good.

    Turnstyle pays attention to every little thing it does.  Even their door handles are sent out in protective cotton sleeves inside their beautiful branded boxes.  Every detail counts and every part of the business follows this ethos.

    All designed British made door handles are completed in house. All design and craftsmanship is completed in-house.

    Small, Beautiful and British Made Door Handles

    Turnstyle is still a small business by many standards.  This is the way Turnstyle likes it and they have not been tempted to move production to China, preferring to carry out all manufacturing processes in wonderful Devon.    They definitely know who they are and who their customers are.  They can really listen and fulfill their customers' expectations. Contact us to find our more about our Turnstyle Design range

    British made door handles in a luxury range of leather finishes Turnstyle Designs purchase their leather from a traditional tannery in Tuscany, Italy, producing the finest, naturally tanned leather using vegetables.

    Other British Made Door Handles

  • Update your Home with Door Handles from Handles4doors

    For an easy and affordable way to update your home with door handles have a look at our styling tips below.  You can do this with minimal effort  and cost to you.   These small differences  can make a big impact on the look and feel of a room. Add to this a bit of paint and some well-loved accessories and the update is complete.

    Living and Dining Rooms

    In 2017 understated luxury will be seen in many living rooms, with welcoming and warm interiors mixing antique and vintage furniture into modern designs. The open communal living spaces where friends and family gather to eat, work and entertain giving a relaxed and inviting feel to your well-loved home.

    Green is to go-to colour for 2017 and anything goes from fresh lime green to muted shades of olive and jewel-like green-blue. To add that finishing touch we can help you choose the perfect door handle, door knob or furniture fittings to complement your beautiful interior.

    For your luxurious, comfortable living space furnished in light, muted tones, choose a luxurious finish for your door handles too, such as antique brass, burnished bronze, antique silver or real pewter. For a warm feel and look you can't go wrong with quality leather, hand-stitched and made with care by Turnstyle Designs in beautiful Devon. Taking on a natural patina over time, the leather will age gracefully and give your room that wonderful traditional and authentic feel of a classic British home.

    A more modern door handle can also work with this interior. Mixing vintage with modern can really work in a home where comfort and practicality are key. Muted tones in furniture and on walls can look wonderful mixed with chromes, nickels and stainless steel. Match your door handles to your furniture, window and light fittings to achieve a cohesive look, blending seamlessly with the features in the room.

    If your doors are large or feature period style rim locks, then door knobs are the natural choice. Brass is always a perfect choice for a period property with polished nickel now being the favourite to achieve a modern, yet classic look. As well as the finish, don't forget the shape of the knob as this is also really important when choosing your door furniture. Oval, round and ball shaped knobs are often seen, but don't forget about the 'sausage and pea', 'beehive' and Georgian rope' designs which give that splendid period feel to a classic interior. Porcelain too has always been used with rim locks and has remained a truly authentic and popular choice to this day.

    Master Bedroom

    We all want a quiet sanctuary to escape to at the end of a busy day. A bedroom that is warm and cosy with a touch of elegance is most people's idea of heaven. So don't forget that the finishing touches, like door handles, wardrobe knobs and handles for bedside cabinets and chests of drawers make a real difference to the look and feel of the room.

    A beautiful cut crystal cupboard knob adorning your free-standing or fitted furniture will give your bedroom a touch of glitz and glamour in a cool and understated way. Choose a knob with a chrome or nickel rose for a modern feel and pair this with door handles in the same finish, giving the scheme a 'pulled together' look. Match these with your bedside lights and chandelier-like light fitting to complete the scheme.

    Prefer a more traditional feel to your bedroom? Then go for pewter, antique brass or bronze to add warmth. Simple designs such as the Victorian scroll on a backplate or an elegantly-shaped handle on a round rose will complement an antique or vintage-style bedroom in an unobtrusive way, giving the room a calm and comfortable ambience.

    To add some warmth and texture, choose a fabulous wallpaper from the stunning designs trending in 2017. Raffia and rattan are materials making a comeback in 2017 and these are not only natural and warm but also help to achieve a beautiful layered setting which complements a luxury bedroom perfectly.

    Now, position your most beautiful and most beloved pieces in the room to add character and personality unique to you and the job is done!
