Reader question: where can I buy a stylish door handle?

Q: I’d like to replace the door handle on my filing cabinet.
I have a filling cabinet that I bought quite a few years ago and I would like to give it a quick update.  The cabinet is white and in good condition but I think the wooden handle makes it look really traditional.  What I am looking for is something stylish and modern that will bring this piece of furniture up to date.  My only requirement is that it’s not too expensive!  Can you help?

A: I think it’s a great that you are updating rather than replacing as this is a much more cost effective way to update
For your filing cabinet I would recommend the following product from Handle World, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of handles, and I think it’s pretty reasonably priced.  The handle has a brushed metal base with a sleek and modern perspex top and will totally transform the look of your cabinet.  The handle costs £13.23 and so you are saving a very large sum if you think about how much a new filling cabinet costs.  I hope you like our suggestion and please let me know if you need any further information.
