Fridge handles need to be more sturdy and bigger than most other kitchen handles, due to the weight of the door they are attached to. Due to this, it is important to get a well-crafted handle, to avoid it looking to chunky and upsetting the balance of the room. It is also necessary to get a handle that can deal with the weight of the door.
The highest quality fridge handles tend to be finished with either polished nickel plate (PNP) or polished chrome plate (PCP).
The full range of finishes includes:
- ANT - Antique brass finish. Works well in traditional kitchens.
- PBL - Polished brass. This is similar to antique brass, but with a cleaner looking finish.
- PCP - Polished chrome plate. The quintessential look of the modern kitchen design.
- PNP - Polished nickel plate. Similar to the polished chrome plate, the difference is mainly down to personal preference.
- SCP - Satin chrome plate. Like the above, but with a more brushed-looking finish.
- SNP - Satin nickel plate. Similar brushed finish to the SCP, but a very slightly different hue. Again, down to preference.
The styles of fridge handles
Fridge handles tend to fall into two main groups. They are generally either a large, chunky handle, or a smaller latch-style american handle. The latter are making a surprising come-back in modern kitchens, but really both can be used in either modern or traditional-styled kitchens.
