Handle House will be closed for stock take on Friday 01/07/2022 sorry for the inconvenience.
We have seen the trend of the handless kitchen is slowly fading out as the design and feature of your entertainment hub is becoming a key element. Gone are the days of the bland and dull kitchens as people want a unique kitchen that sets them apart from others and creates an inviting feel as soon as you walk in. This uniqueness can simply be adapted into your kitchen with your correct choice of handles. People are using accessories as inspiration or to connect with for example matching to their copper lighting, chrome tap ware or black bench tops etc.
Some popular trends of 2016 are shown below:
Modern Traditional Kitchen
Hampton Style Kitchens
Streamline Modern Kitchen
Copper Inspired Kitchens
Black is the New Silver
Other disadvantages of the handless kitchens are
– Smudges on the door fronts and dirt and crumbs getting trapped in the grooves required regular cleaning.
– The handless kitchen actually requires a bigger budget with clients needing to spend anything from 15-50% more on an equivalent kitchen with handles.
– People with arthritis and older people tend find it difficult to pull the drawers and cupboards out with the handless kitchens as they need a handle that is comfortable and easy to grip.
– Handles also centralize the pull and push action on the draws so the runners last longer in good shape.
