When it comes to stylish, contemporary kitchens, we are the experts you can rely on, here at MLS Kitchens. And one of the trends that is currently incredibly popular, as well as practical, for contemporary kitchens is to use handleless doors. But a kitchen with no handles, doesn’t sound all that practical. So how does it work? And what are the benefits? Well this is our guide to the advantages of a handleless kitchen.

What is a handleless kitchen?

Is a handleless kitchen really lacking handles? And if so, how do you open your cabinets. Well, a handleless kitchen removes the exterior handles from cupboards and drawers. And instead these are replaces with inset grooves, for you to open the door, or touch open cabinets.

Touch open cabinets

In a handleless kitchen, there are a range of options that can help make sure that the kitchen stays practical. Touch open cabinets are one such practical consideration. By simply pushing the cabinet door, the door will easily pop open. And in terms of practicality, when you are carrying a stack of plates, this touch open mechanism can be far more useful than a traditional cupboard handle.

What are the advantages of a handleless kitchen?

There are a range of advantages to a handleless kitchen. Some of these are practical advantages, while others are purely aesthetic. The advantages include:

  • easier to navigate in a small kitchen- no more bumping into metal door handles when carrying hot food or the washing up
  • creates a truly smooth finish to emphasize the contemporary style of the kitchen
  • easier to clean your cupboards as food and dirt will not get stuck in the handle grooves
  • easier to open cupboards when your hands are full if you opt for the touch close cabinets
