The contemporary look is a favourite amongst our Kitchen Design Centre clients; the clean, modern, spacious feel it gives means your whole home can get a real uplift with the fresh, cutting edge finish that a contemporary kitchen gives you.
Whilst the furniture and appliances you choose are important to the overall look of designer kitchens, so are all those little extras, like your kitchen cupboard handles – a finishing touch you should never dismiss! When discussing kitchen design with our clients, we make sure we have every little detail covered!
So today, we’re going to explore some gorgeous designer kitchen cupboard handles, one of the more overlooked aspects which actually enhances that contemporary look; an essential element in creating the kitchen you’ve always hoped for.
Chrome kitchen handles give you that sleek, designer look and work perfectly with modern and contemporary kitchen styles. Worried about mixing colour and textures? Don’t be! Chrome looks great on wooden cupboards as well as on high gloss finishes. In fact, it’s the contrast of metal with glossy cabinets or natural wood which really help to give a kitchen that modern look.
Other popular material options for your handles include nickel, stainless steel and even colourful glass – which really does achieve that modern, bright look!
Whilst there are lots of stylish decorative handles available which can add a bold touch to your kitchen cabinets – from chrome bars, to bow handles and rounded D shaped handles – another trend is the minimalist finger pull handle. Here, a small, thin handle lays on the top of the door, protruding just a few centimetres. The goal of this style of handle is to produce less visual clutter.
Alternatively, you could go ultra minimalist and handle free, with your cupboard drawer fronts constructed with integrated handles. The subtle horizontal lip on cabinets doesn’t break up the final finish that modern cabinets give you, achieving a really clean and sharp result.
