Traditional Black D Handle Fitting Ideas
The traditional black D handle is often used on kitchen cupboards and drawers. You do not need to use the same size handles on these; in fact what can add to your overall aesthetic of the kitchen is to use different sizes. Generally you would use a larger handle for drawers than you would use for cupboards, so larger handles in the horizontal and smaller ones in the vertical. Again, if you were using these handles on a chest of drawers, you might use larger handles for the longer base drawers and shorter ones for the top split drawers. One thing to remember is that if you are using a cupboard or drawer on a regular basis, make sure that you buy a handle of a sufficient size that will accommodate your hand comfortably.
The traditional black D handle is coated in a black oil, which is a traditional Finnish to cast iron. With regular use indoors they will stay in perfect condition. If, however, they do need a lift, just a wipe with some olive oil will bring them back to life. The handles are suitable for outdoor use where they will naturally rust, or they can be painted if you so desire.
If you wish to paint these handles, please clean down with white spirit before you paint them.
