Handleless kitchen design principles

The handleless kitchen has risen in popularity over recent years, and is now one of the most desirable and sought after kitchen designs. With no handles on cupboard doors, this kitchen design was created to suit contemporary kitchens. However, if you want to make the most out of these impressive cabinets, that also double as a design feature, you need to follow some design principles. And here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to handleless kitchen design principles.

Handleless kitchen design principles

To create a handleless kitchen that really stands out, you should follow these three design principles:

  • symmetrical design
  • matching worktops
  • functionality

Symmetrical design

The handleless kitchen provides a sleek, smooth and impressive wall of cabinets. But, if you want to maximize the visual appeal, you should really consider symmetry. For example, if your cabinets will be broken up by an appliance, like the oven, you need to make sure that it is positioned right in the centre. With an equal number of cabinets on each side of the break. This will help keep a cohesive and flowing style.

Matching worktops

If you are thinking about installing a kitchen island, why not choose a material and colour that matches the cabinets and units? This way, your whole design will flow, from one part of the room to another. And your worktops should also be the same.


Finally, one of the most important handleless kitchen design principles is the functionality. Nothing is more important than the usability of your kitchen. And you need to make sure that your doors can open easily, even with your hands full. Otherwise it will not be very practical at all.
