Why you should opt for a handleless kitchen design

Why you should opt fora handleless kitchen design

When it comes to contemporary kitchens, the handleless kitchen reigns. Sleek, chic, and fashionably minimalist, it looks great in every home. While style is undeniably important, there are a huge number of reasons to choose a handleless kitchen design – as you’ll find out today’s blog…

A handleless kitchen is essentially a kitchen where the drawers, cabinets, and units are handle-free. Instead of handles, the units are fitted with one of a number of designs, including grooves, a continuous rail style, or a push-to-open door. The effect is both stylish and practical – a must in any modern kitchen.

Reason #1 Promotes flow through the kitchen

Handleless kitchens offer a much smoother transition from dining room to kitchen than a kitchen with handles. Handles can often interfere with the composition of having both rooms next to each other and make a space feel closed-in, while handleless design opens up spaces and is perfect for open plan living.

Reason #2 More hygienic than a kitchen with handles

The absence of handles means there are no awkward places for dirt and grime to hide and gather. This not only means your kitchen will be more hygienic, it also minimises the work you’ve got to do during your weekly clean.

Reason #3 One less detail to worry about

Sometimes it’s the finer details such as taps, light fittings and handles that can take the longest time to decide on. Choosing a kitchen that doesn’t require handles means one less decision to make and more time to focus on other areas of your kitchen space.

Reason #4 Perfect for little ones

One of the best things about a handleless design is that it’s very much tailored to the adults in the home and is pretty much kid-proof. If you’ve got young children you’ll more than likely want to remove anything that could potentially harm them i.e. handles sticking out, or dangerous cleaning products within your kitchen cupboards. A handleless kitchen allows this with its grown-up design.

Reason #5 Ideal for kitchens of all sizes

While many wow-factor kitchen features work best in larger kitchens a handleless design is an equally great option for smaller kitchen spaces. If you’re tight on space, choosing a handleless design in a white or light colour will make your room appear larger and less cluttered, as well as bringing it up to date with modern-day trends.
