Handleless Cabinets – Let Experts Handle Them

It might not be easy for you to imagine and accept the fact that the kitchen might be deprived of the usual decorative elements, such as door handles. However, there is a great desire to improve the look of furniture and make it more modern and practical. Handleless kitchen units are part of a trend that has been on the rise over the past few years and offers homeowners upgrading their kitchens the opportunity to introduce smooth, sleek lines within the kitchen without the need for “pesky” handles.

One of the great benefits of handleless kitchen units is that they fit in very well with most contemporary or classic kitchens, bringing an effortless looking “smoothness” to the overall aesthetic. Additionally, a handleless kitchen gives you more space, as there is no “overhang” which allows you to navigate around your kitchen more effectively while you cook and prepare food, making it an ideal choice for those with a smaller floor space. The hidden mechanism that allows opening the doors or the drawer by a slight push has become very popular lately. And this is exactly what we are going to focus on: push-to-open solutions. That being said, there’s more to focus on than just looks when it comes to choosing the style of kitchen doors that will suit your lifestyle. Whether you’re thinking about having handleless kitchen doors with a push open mechanism, or handleless kitchen cabinets with soft closing hinges, Titus experts will help you find the right solution for you.

The advantages of a handleless kitchen cabinetry

Here are some of the advantages of the handleless design:

1. Handleless kitchen cupboards are safer

How many of us have snagged our clothing on drawer and cabinet handles? Everyone knows what it’s like to bash their hip or head on kitchen cabinet knobs and kitchen drawer handles. It hurts, and quite frankly we could all do without it. Handleless doors remove this issue, as there is nothing to catch yourself on. For young children, handles can be a safety hazard since they are at the same level as their heads. Moreover, children seem to love to hang onto the kitchen cabinet door handles and play, which might be very dangerous.

2. Great for small kitchens

Due to the limited space, handleless kitchens are a great option for kitchens that are space challenged. Handles take up extra space while handleless kitchens don’t as they are integrated within the cabinet.

3. A modern and timeless look

It’s easy for cabinetry to become dated over a matter of years. With handleless kitchens, your kitchen will retain its clean, timeless elegance thanks to its super sleek profile.

4. Complementary to integrated appliances

If you have modern appliances in your kitchen that have been integrated into its layout, handleless is the way to go. Its simplistic design can even suit older appliances, depending on their features.

5. Less dust and grime on handles

Handleless kitchens will attract less dust than handled kitchens. Handles tend to collect dust compared to handleless kitchens. On the other hand – if you’ve ever spent time awkwardly scrubbing behind a tricky to clean handle, you may consider that a quick wipe over of your kitchen units and removing debris a breeze in comparison with getting rid of ingrained dirt on or behind the handles themselves.
