Handleless Kitchen Cabinets

By 18th October 2014Advice

Consider for a moment, the handles on your kitchen cabinets. It’s not something you likely think about very much, unless you’re cleaning the cabinets at the time. Then, they become cumbersome. They’re a magnet for food particles, an invitation for little ones to bump their heads on, and a pain to clean. The good news is, Handleless kitchen cabinets are becoming more popular every day.

Not only does doing away with handles make your kitchen more efficient, it also give it a minimalist, modern style. If you’re considering new kitchen cabinets, here are a few handleless models to explore.

Handleless Kitchen Cabinets on Houzz

Sometimes known of Pinterest for the home, Houzz has several kitchen themes that use the handleless kitchen cabinets. A really splashy one is the Bohemian apartment kitchen with a fabric back drop. The back drop is enough to talk about, very surprising and eye-catching in an otherwise sleek and monotone room. But the cabinets, with no handles to speak of, really enhance the colour. They’re a subtle gray shade that is easy to keep clean.

Another eye catching handleless kitchen on this site is the Tilden Street. This is textbook minimalist, with just a few hints of accessories. There is no colour in the design but white, which really brings in the natural lighting. If you’ve got a kitchen without a lot of windows, this is a good design to look at, because all the white really magnifies whatever lighting you’ve got to work with. And of course, with the handleless cabinets, it’s a very modern look.

Apartment Therapy

In a small space kitchen like this, handleless kitchen cabinets are a must. If you’re trying to make your way through here, knowing that you’re not going to get caught on a cabinet doorknob is a relief. Even the fridge is handleless in this kitchen. It’s worth mentioning that there are a significant number of handleless appliances within our range.

Doorbox

The Doorbox website is packed with photos sure to take your breath away. They pair handleless kitchen cabinets with a high gloss finish that sparkles. Though, again, they like to pair them with wood counter tops and shelving, which keeps it from being too overpowering, and gives the whole look a more homelike feel.

Cleaning

Cleaning will be a breeze with a handle-less kitchen- for starters, there’s no more worrying about bumping into handles or greasy fingerprints on the handles themselves. With a handle-less kitchen, brushing up against the cabinets and drawers will no longer leave you black and blue.

To make using handle-less drawers and cabinets safer, you can install a J style metal grip, which makes it easier to grasp the edge of the cabinets and drawers, reduces wear and tear on the edge, and helps maintain the strength of the edge. This money saver will prevent breakage on the weaker edges of these units, increasing durability and leaving the drawers and cabinets looking smooth for years to come.
