Kitchen without handles: opening mechanisms, advantages and disadvantages

A modern comfortable kitchen is a lot of placesfor storing everything you need. Lots of cabinets, shelves, drawers, and, accordingly, a lot of handles to open and close them. Can they become an interior decoration or, on the contrary, will they bring visual clutter to a trendy minimalist design? Some are already inclined to abandon them altogether - read the details in our article Visual conciseness of facades, ease of cleaning, clear lines - these are just some of the advantages of kitchen cabinets without handles. With such, you can feel that the future has already come: now there are technical possibilities for installing doors that open as if by magic, from a slight push. They are famous for this first of all, it is the engineers of Germany who make every effort to improve the design of such a seemingly simple thing as a wardrobe, using modern achievements of science and technology. Olga Lesina, interior designer: - Kitchens without handles have been in demand on the market for about three years. Yes, they require the installation of additional elements - mechanisms, electric drives, but there are many options and a reasonable price can be found really. If earlier many perceived accessories as decoration and devoted a lot of time to choosing it, now convenience and functionality have come to the fore, and such cabinets help both save effort and emphasize the ultra-modern minimalist design with smooth surfaces and clear lines. Disguised handles If you do not want to give up the handles completely, but agree that very often they visually literally "cut" the silhouette of the kitchen, then choose options that are almost imperceptible, merging with the surface. They can be made of the same material as the furniture, and have the same color. Another way is the recessed handles formed by the beveled edge of the facade. Convenient, the interior looks, the eyes don't "cling", and the edges of the clothes don't cling either. The only difficulty is that the equipment for such a production is not cheap, so such an edge is a sign of elite kitchens.

Most likely a German invention, the Push-to-open system. From light pressure - by hand, shoulder, elbow, knee, hip - the door silently and smoothly opens by about a third. The advantages are obvious: the contents of the cabinet are available even if your hands are busy at some point. Minus one: from touching, noticeable traces can remain on the glossy surface. However, they can be removed much easier and faster than cleaning complex handles in a classic kitchen.

The fact is that a door that has been slightly opened by the Push-to-open system still has to be opened manually. This is where a smart electric drive comes into play, capable of smoothly bringing the opening to the end. Moreover, if he senses an obstacle - a cat or a child for example - he will stop. It also closes cabinets easily, just a push. Kitchen Gracio factory Intuo, salon "Kitchen interiors" Practicality and convenience Of course, the systemscabinets without handles are also used in other rooms - hallways, bathrooms, dressing rooms. But it is in the kitchen, especially a small one, that their use is most justified. Where else do we often need to do several things at the same time - washing vegetables, disassembling dishes, pouring food for the cat, making sure that the child does not pinch his finger? It would be convenient to have a couple of extra hands, but sometimes the ability to close or open a door with just one dexterous movement of an elbow or knee helps out. And it is also the only option for the device of corner doors, where the handle on one sash will interfere with the opening of the other. Do you want your kitchen to always look neat? Choose a trendy one, and hide all unnecessary things in cabinets with doors without handles. Kitchen Horizon factory Zeyko, salon "Kitchen interiors" Fashion for conciseness Wardrobes without handles - one of the.Discreet interiors with an emphasis on lines, neutral colors and quality materials are at the height of their popularity. Most likely, the situation will not change in the near future - simplicity and clarity in decor and arrangement is now valued more than pretentiousness, as well as saving time and effort. Handleless fronts are easier to clean, not to mention how much quicker buying decisions are made when you don't have to pick one of the millions of fittings available. Inga Azhgirey, interior designer: - Handleless cabinets immediately give the kitchen a modern look, do not distract from the ultra-fashionable design. Nowadays, wonderful mechanisms are being made that allow not only to slightly open the door by pressing, but to open it optimally. If there is no handle, then you will never accidentally hit it or the child will not drop the pots on himself by opening the drawer. It always closes smoothly: pinching your finger is not so easy. Even if your hands are dough, you will be able to open the drawers. I would recommend, even if you are a fan of kitchens with handles, to make the lower drawers, for example, under the oven, with just such a system - opening by pressing. You can easily take out the frying pan without bending over again. inga-art.ru Kitchen Horizon factory Zeyko, salon "Kitchen interiors"
