The ideal kitchen for each of us is going to look different, but the common features of what we will call the best kitchen are practicality and maximum comfort. For example, cabinets should have a multiplicity of sections for storing kitchen appliances, utensils and gadgets, but it does mean that their doors will be fitted with an equivalent number of handles. At the same time, these do not always look good in a design and accessories may not always be favourably combined with modern minimalist facades. Therefore, one of the most fashionable and current trends in kitchen design interiors is the complete absence of handles. What can be justified by such a decision, and what mechanisms are used today, we will now explain further.

Kitchen furniture without handles for your kitchen: advantages and disadvantages

  • Concealed Handles

Perhaps you might not easily agree and accept the fact that a kitchen can be devoid of usual decorative elements such as door handles, but you still have a great desire to improve the appearance of the kitchen furniture while making it more modern and practical. In this case you should use handles that seemed to merge with the surface of the façade, because they are made of the same material, or even just the same tone.

Another, no less original version of the concealed handle, is that with special grooves on the edges of the facades. They are not visible and do not spoil the surface of the kitchen furniture doors, the kitchen consequently looks more stylish.

Disadvantage:   Their manufacture is not cheap, so such  facades are naturally more expensive than otherwise similar more basic products.


  • Push – to – open

Hidden mechanisms that make it possible to open a door or drawer by slight pressure on it have become very popular lately. Such a miracle was originally a German invention called push-to-open. Under soft pressure the door smoothly and quietly opens up to a certain degree, and the mechanism helps them close easily again by just a touch.

Disadvantages:  It’s most likely, from the constant touching the surface of the facade, that there will be left traces, spots and stains. At the same time, cleaning facades is much easier than conventional handles.



Everyone is familiar with German scrupulousness in matters of inventions of quality mechanisms, materials and other items. With the same care and diligence these German developments are not only suitable for large-scale projects, but also for the improvement of technical innovations and a variety of consumer devices.

The push-to-open mechanism is equipped with a special electric drive, allowing smooth opening of doors to the very end, to recognize items that prevent closing drawers, and are also make cupboards and drawers easy to close


Advantages of furniture without handles

  • Modern appearance

Kitchen furniture without handles looks very much modern, is easy and aesthetically pleasing as nothing superfluous interferes with the smooth surface of the facade. Laconic and lacking unnecessary details, they are more popular today than the traditional abundance of decorative accessories, besides, minimalist design of a kitchen can significantly save your time and effort.

Small cabinets without handles visually expand the space of your kitchen, especially if the colour of the facade reflects the tonality of the walls


  • Convenience

In the kitchen, we often need to busily perform several tasks at once, and doors with integrated opening mechanisms will help us quickly and easily get to the contents of any drawer or cabinet at the touch of a hand, shoulder, knee or foot.

Also, if you have previously kept continually hitting protruding handles, then a concealed mechanism will a priori prevent that, and pinching  your fingers will even be quite difficult.

So, kitchen furniture without handles is a new world in design, which will be with us long enough that fans of the such mechanisms will be replacing them with the same in the future.
