If you got kiddies running around the house causing adorable mayhem, then a handleless kitchen may help. As previously mentioned, handles can cause unlikely accidents. At the same time, it also tempts the little ones to grab and open your cabinets and drawers. So, it may be time to add a handleless kitchen to your baby proofing list. 

3. Fewer Decisions, Less Clutter

Going handleless eliminates the dilemma of choosing one of the hardest items to decide when designing a kitchen—handles. So you can cross that off your main concerns. As you get rid of your kitchen handles, not only do you ensure safety but also improve your kitchen visually. This big decision will get rid of the extra visual clutter in your cooking space, therefore achieving a modernized kitchen. 

4. Sleek and Clean Lines

Less clutter also means sleek and clean lines for your cabinetry. It’s recommended if you want a seamless look between your appliances and cabinets. Furthermore, a handleless kitchen promotes a smooth flow not only visually but also in terms of spatial relationships. 

This type of design can bridge compositions from your kitchen to the dining area. So it’s best suited for open-plan layouts. 

5. Keeping Up with the Kitchen Trends

Did you know that handles are one of the obvious giveaways that a kitchen is outdated? If you don’t want to miss out on kitchen trends, then it’s best to go handleless. It promotes a streamlined design accompanied by minimalist and stylish features. 

So if you want a kitchen that’s satisfying not only in terms of functionality but also in the design itself, then what are you waiting for? 

Types of Handleless Application

So how does a handleless kitchen work? We’ll list the most used application below to guide you on what you’re looking for. 

Push-to-open Mechanism

It’s a type of mechanism that’s perfectly concealed behind your kitchen doors. You just need to push your drawers or cabinets for them to open. In addition, some variations come with soft close integration for smooth usage.

Now, how is this baby-proofed? Although there are no tempting knobs for kids to hold, it’s possible to access them by simply pushing. So it’s still advisable to add safety hardware to prevent this from happening.

J-Pull Kitchen Doors

Instead of handles, the door itself has recessed j-like gaps that are hidden from view. It’s either located on the bottom or top of the door. A kitchen using a j-pull will have ‘shadow gaps’ between the doors or above to allow your hands access.

Handleless Door with Rail System

This type of integration is often classified as a ‘true’ handleless system. Usually, this type of variation creates a space between the doors, drawer, or countertop. It allows your hand access behind the door and opens it. Unlike a j-pull that needs to be cut into the door, this is a much straightforward alternative. 

“Handleless designs offer not just one but five reasons why it’s a must-have. It’s a perfect choice if you want a kitchen that transcends functionality.”
