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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
