If you are a fan of the modern and sleek look in kitchen designs, a handleless kitchen could be the style for you. With handleless cabinet doors or push to close upper cabinets, you can create a clutter-free and sleek kitchen design. Read on to help you decide whether smooth finished, handleless kitchen cabinets are what you need to put the finishing touches to your kitchen renovation.


A handleless kitchen is a great option for a small kitchen as handleless cabinets create more room to maneuver, promoting flow and a smooth transitional design. The simple yet functional cabinets with a lack of handles create the illusion of more space and a streamlined flow of kitchen elements, especially in a white glossy material.

Without handles, your kitchen design is a much safer environment for families and young children. There are no handles for small children to grab, or for clothes to catch on to and they are much harder for children to open.

Timeless Style
The effortless design of a handleless kitchen is one which will never go out of style. The elegant and minimalistic look sleek cabinets create will never date and are a beautiful addition to a modern kitchen and home.


Because handleless kitchens are a little more difficult to manufacture and have soft close features and lift-up systems, handleless kitchen cabinets and drawers are a little more expensive and require a slightly larger budget to achieve the wow factor they create.

Most handleless cabinets and drawers have a groove at the top of the door opening which can be hard to clean and easy for dirt and grime to get trapped under. Some may argue that without handles, your whole cabinet surface is covered in fingerprints and may require more cleaning than units with handles.

When deciding on a handleless kitchen, your choice will depend on your individual requirements, your budget and your kitchen style. Nothing is more important than choosing the right kitchen design that best suits you and your lifestyle. This is all taken into consideration when Harrington Kitchens designs your dream kitchen.
