Our door handle trends for 2025

In 2025, the themes of security, naturalness and outdoor living will determine the feeling of living. In concrete terms, this means brightness, wood and a tactile feel, peppered in places with colored and darker surfaces.

Wood in the form of vertical slats will increasingly adorn the walls and give our rooms a modern ambience that is both close to nature and straightforward. Wood regulates sound and humidity and thus ensures a pleasant living climate.

The mid-century style is trending in 2025 because it embodies a time when the world was on the move and at the same time still functioned in an analog way. For many, mid-century is therefore a reminder of less fast-moving "good old times" that functions like a safe haven in a disorderly world. The home as a safe retreat to feel at ease continues to gain in importance.

The home as a place of retreat also includes the "outdoor home": outdoor spaces need to be redesigned or even discovered in the first place, so that inexpensive sunbathing or a well-deserved coffee in the countryside is accompanied by the right feeling.

This goes hand in hand with a trend towards flexibility: we live and work more flexibly, so we also need more flexible living spaces that can be easily redesigned. Sliding doors are the solution of choice here, as they offer flexible room division, sound insulation and light in all corners.

Surfaces for all the senses, calming colors and lots of light are the trend

We are interacting more and more with AI - and yet we still want a simple life like "back in the day". The symbol of this paradox is reflected in the combination of earthy colors and natural green tones - above all a watery turquoise: this color symbolizes water, green nature and also dominates cyberspace. It gets to the heart of our modern way of life, so to speak.

Kitchens as an additional living space will be more colorful and atmospheric in 2025, with lots of yellow, orange and red, while the other living spaces will envelop us in calming beige and pastel shades. This will be complemented by surfaces in different qualities and with different haptics so that we can live with all our senses: Light wooden walls, flokati, roughcast or stone on the walls, plus dark wooden floorboards on the floor.

Door handle trends

Easy-to-handle furniture and doors take account of the fact that we are getting older and older. This is also reflected in the emerging door handle trends:

  • The CAROLA PIATTA S door handle in cashmere gray with its slightly conical shape and subtle decorative applications is the perfect handle for that "good old days" feeling. In graphite black, CAROLA PIATTA S also fits in with eclecticism, the "non-style" that has been "in" for some time and will remain so.
  • Our LUCIA SELECT door handle in graphite black brass or graphite black copper goes well with both mid-century and eclectic ensembles. The metal accents play with the retro elements of the home without standing out too much, while the simple shape brings the whole thing into our time. This door handle also fits particularly well as the icing on the cake in the new kitchens in the feel-good colors red, orange or yellow.
  • Thanks to its retro shape and brass look, the MARISA door handle is perfect for combining with mid-century elements such as woven rugs, floor lamps and coffee tables.
  • The cashmere gray version of the REMOTE door handle with its wonderful feel suits both mid-century and natural, modern and minimalist ambience, for example with a vertical slat design, and is wonderfully ergonomic in the hand.
  • Our smooth-running sliding doors are ideal for people who want or need to make their four walls more flexible - and for people with limited freedom of movement. The gentle and ergonomic handle bars in the ELEGANZA, RONDO or LUCIA ranges offer them a secure grip that blends into any ambience.
  • With its large, matt surfaces, our AVUS door handle range reflects the trend towards large surfaces and a stimulating feel. This design in velvet grey, just like the color turquoise, visually combines naturalness with our tech-savvy world, while in cashmere grey it focuses more on the natural elements.

These were the door handle trends for 2023

When it comes to living, 2023 came to us with feel-good trends and wellness - but also with light and color. And: lots of wood, lots of nature.

Plants are taking on a new significance in homes and offices. Plants not only dampen the sound in our rooms, but they also promote well-being, concentration and a better indoor climate - exactly what we need in the home office, living room and feel-good corner. Greenterior is the magic word!

One important trend for 2023 is actually not a trend at all: eclecticism is a mixture of many other trends. But this mixture is so well done that the perfect mix of existing colours, old furniture and revived accessories from the attic, modern accents, XXL artwork and bold wallpaper becomes something completely new. You can create this non-trend very easily and inexpensively with a little imagination as well as a trove of unearthed "treasures" - with the right door handles.

Door handle trends: matt surfaces, lots of light and dark details define the image

Those who like it quieter will love the new maritime trend: Linen fabrics, wood in natural colours, maritime decorative elements and lots of light create the "Coastal Granny Style": Grandma's times, reinterpreted. This style really comes into its own with black fittings in the kitchen. Important: a matt finish best underlines the rustic, cosy and fresh ambience.

In the bathroom, the trend is moving further and further towards the spa look. Freestanding bathtubs are an eye-catcher for this style, but also simpler changes such as rattan or sisal baskets; matt, large-area tiles, warm, light colours, wood and discreet eye-catchers such as black or dark fittings with a satin finish define the image.

In short: 2023 will be colourful, cosy and flooded with light. You don't have to renovate the whole flat to achieve this. A little redecoration and some new details are often enough: door handles, for example, set amazing accents and can subtly change the character of an entire flat. Our special Griffwerk colours graphite black and cashmere grey are a must in 2023. Read here which Griffwerk door handles match the emerging trends on the horizon:

The PLANEO handle shell in graphite black brass or graphite black copper is the secret star in any eclectic ensemble. It gives the actually invisible, light-giving sliding glass door just the right accent, the icing on the cake of style and colour that provides the absolutely successful finishing touch. Those with hinged doors achieve the same effect with our Lucia Select door handle in graphite black brass or graphite black copper.

A bathroom should not only look like a spa, but also feel like one. Our LEAF LIGHT door handle from Sieger Design in matt cashmere grey or graphite black therefore matches this trend - depending on the colour of the fittings. Its horizontal top line gives it a modern, understated look, while the rounded bottom contour is naturally flattering in the hand.

Our CAROLA PIATTA S door handle is THE perfect partner for the Coastal Granny Style: more "Granny" is hardly possible. The classic cone shape with discreet applications for the antique look is pleasant to hold and gives your home just the spark of cosiness that goes perfectly with wood, linen and shells.

In graphite black, this Griffwerk classic also goes well with eclecticism.

The REMOTE door handle is a perfect blend of the two aforementioned door handles: Slightly "rounder" than Leaf Light and slightly "more modern" than Carola Piatta S, it fits both the spa bathroom and the Coastal Granny Style. In the living area and kitchen, it takes out some of the "granny" and brings in modern freshness, while in the bathroom it emphasises nature and cosiness.

The door handles of the AVUS series offer a lot of matt surface. Clear lines with rounded ends combine modernity with nature, making AVUS door handles the ideal accessory for Greenterior Style homes. Where plants grow wild and untamed, Avus brings calm to the picture without creating too much contrast. In this case, it does not necessarily have to be cashmere grey or graphite black - depending on the colour of the furnishings, the elegant look of velvet grey also fits in very well with the Greenterior trend.

Handle bars for hinged or sliding doors accentuate modernity. To maintain the cosiness and the trend towards the natural, the LUCIA handle bar offers a combination of a round bar that feels natural in the hand and a rectangular door fitting. In this way, LUCIA matches all the major trends for 2023, depending on the colour.
