Door knob vs lever part 2

lindsaymccMarch 5, 2013
We are updating our 2002 built condo and debating between door levers and door knobs. We believe we want to go with door levers, we are stuck on the color. The doors and trim are painted white. What says more modern and up to date, satin nickel levers or rubbed bronze levers? Or do we nix the levers all together and go with silver door knobs that are probably the most neutral of all? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The answer depends on the style of the condo, the style of your furnishings and decor, and how long you think you'll stay.

If your stuff and the condo's look is more modern, go with the satin nickel levers. If it's old world or Tuscan-ish, go with the ORB. If it's basic/classic traditional, go with the silver knobs.

I put oiled bronze levers - but I'm 78 with some arthritis problems - preparing for getting older.

Satin Nickel will be less of a statement on white doors ... ORB has a tendency to stand out like a black dot.
