The handleless kitchen is a trend that has been on the rise over the past few years, offering homeowners the opportunity to introduce smooth, clean lines within their kitchen without the need for “pesky” handles.
It’s a winning contemporary look that works equally well in a high gloss or a matt finish. There are also a wide range of colour choices too.

Are there handleless appliances to match?
If you want to create a totally handleless look, you can! The idea of a handleless kitchen now extends beyond the cabinetry and doors of standard kitchen design.
Great appliances to match your handleless kitchen
To this end, you will now find more appliance manufacturers who are producing built-in appliances with great features that fit flush with kitchen cabinetry. Some have glass finishes, and the ‘touch to open’ mechanism is certainly becoming more popular in integrated appliance design.
What kind of cabinet fronts are best for handleless kitchens?
Kitchens with a lower sheen tend to show fewer marks. Similarly, lighter colours don’t tend to show marks and fingerprints as much as darker colours. For this reason, incorporating natural wood and steel into a design can create a superb and durable finish.
Steel or wood? What’s the best look for handleless kitchens?
Steel, with its streamlined modern kitchen sounds right on the money – but you’d be surprised just how good painted wood units can look in a handleless setting.
Not only do they look good, but they are also easier to maintain and keep clean. Additionally, any wear that occurs over time only adds to the character and charm of the finish.
