When the time comes to have a new complete kitchen unit then you will also have to decide if you want to use soft closing kitchen drawers. At Kitchen Warehouse, all the soft closing drawers we provide are produced by renown manufacturer Hettich.

Available in a number of designs and styles, our soft closing drawers can be used to store a multitude of kitchen items such as cutlery, pots and pans.

There are many benefits to choosing soft-closing kitchen drawers for your new kitchen units and the team here have listed them below so you can see all of the advantages of having them installed in your kitchen.

Soft Closing Kitchen Drawers Benefits

Drawers do not slam
Soft closing drawers can be fitted in any style of kitchen. The mechanism that makes the drawer soft closing allows the drawer to shut smoothly and without slamming, unlike older, non-soft closing designs do. As you push the drawer shut, when it is nearly fully closed the mechanism comes into to action to slow down the shutting to prevent slamming and to close the drawer fully, but much more quietly than drawers without the mechanism.

As well as soft-closing kitchen drawers we also provide soft closing hinges. They are an accessory that can be applied to existing kitchen doors and cabinets to ensure that all your kitchen storage spaces shut as quietly as possible.

You Protect Drawer Contents
Naturally, if you slam a kitchen drawer then you increase the likelihood of the contents inside flying about and then breaking. Slamming a drawer without a soft closing mechanism can in fact also damage the drawer itself which will prove costly if you are consistently breaking your kitchen drawers. A slow or soft close hinge prevents fast, rough closures to protect your drawer and cabinet contents.

Less Maintenance
A kitchen drawer that is soft closing will always close safely and gently meaning that over time, compared to regular drawers, there will be much less damage to them and therefore your kitchen units will require less maintenance. Through the use of the hinges, we supply you will similarly put less stress and strain on your kitchen cabinet doors, which massively extends the lifespan of your entire kitchen layout.

Because your kitchen units will last so long, should you ever wish to move house the soft close hinges and drawers in your well-maintained kitchen will make for a great selling point to any prosecutive buyers of your home.

Children Friendly
By having soft-closing kitchen drawers installed in your home you can protect your little ones from getting their fingers trapped in a slammed drawer. Because the mechanism slows the closing of the drawer your children will not have their fingers pinched as even if their hands are still in the way the as the drawer shuts. They do not close as viciously as a regular drawer that had been slammed would. A soft closing mechanism also stops over-enthusiastic children from being able to slam kitchen doors, cabinets and drawers.
