One of the benefits of having a custom kitchen fitted is being able to take advantage of a greater variety of options than could be offered if you decided to go 'off the rack', so it's well worth your time to consider some of the more unusual ideas, including handle-less cabinet doors and drawers.
Eliminating handles from your kitchen might sound like an odd move, but it's a great way to reinvent the space. Here are just four advantages of going handle-less.
1. Cleaner and More Modern Appearance
People generally choose to create a custom kitchen because they want it to look stunning and unique. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that handle-less kitchens are becoming so popular. Without handles, your cabinets will offer a more modern appearance, with lines flowing unbroken across entire surfaces. If you're looking to foster a modern and eye-catching appearance, handle-less is the right way to go.
2. Easier Cleaning
Isn't it great when you can combine great looks with phenomenal convenience? That's just the kind of combination you'll benefit from when you go for a handle-less kitchen. Because surfaces are unbroken, cleaning is both easier and faster. You'll just need to quickly wipe down each cabinet door and drawer with no need to work your way around the tricky ins and outs of a handle. Of course, the fact that handles aren't creating any tight angles means that it's harder for dust and grime to develop, and it's far more hygienic to go handle-less since people won't be laying their hands on them right after handling food.
3. Added Ease of Use
It might seem like handle-less kitchen cabinets and drawers wouldn't be very easy to use, but this isn't the case at all. In fact, many handle-less cabinets and drawers come open when you press against them, making it far easier to access them when you have your hands full. Those that don't will have an inconspicuous groove running their entire length; instead of moving to where the handle is, you'll be able to open longer drawers at any point.
4. Better for Limited Space
Many kitchens are a lot smaller than their owners would like them to be, but going handle-less can help with this problem. Firstly, the lack of protruding handles will make a room appear larger, and the fact that they won't be there to stop light from falling means that there will be fewer shadows across your kitchen. Finally you'll never have to worry about catching yourself on or banging against a handle while you're navigating a smaller kitchen.
