When it comes to contemporary kitchens, there is no design trait more prevalent than the use of handleless kitchen doors. Even with kitchen cabinets in a matt finish, instead of the popular gloss finish, you can still achieve a contemporary feel by using handleless doors. But why would you choose to have no handles on your kitchen cabinets? And does this not make things more complicated? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen deign professionals.

Advantages of handleless kitchens
So, why should you opt for a kitchen design that does not use handles? Well, there are a number of reasons, including:
- Smooth finish- handleless kitchens provide a full smooth finish to any kitchen space. With no handles jutting out from the cabinets to detract from the style of the room, handleless kitchens provide a stunning, clean finish for contemporary spaces.
- Safety- with handles you also have potentially sharp corners, that can be dangerous, particularly for children, who are often at head height to the handles lower down. Removing these handles removes the risk, and creates a safer environment for a family kitchen.
- Practical- handleless kitchens can be very practical, especially when you choose the touch open option. This is because you simply need to touch the door firmly, to open it, instead of fumbling for the handle. Other types of handleless door, like those with a J groove, can be less practical, especially for people with limited dexterity.
- Low maintenance- with a touch open handleless kitchen, maintenance is a breeze. There is no handle, channel or groove for dirt to collect in, so all your cabinets need is a quick wipe with a damp cloth. For those with J grooves though, you will also need to wipe the channel too. But this is still easy than scrubbing behind a typical kitchen door handle.
