The benefits of handleless kitchens

At Cutting Edge Bathrooms and Carpentry, we’ve designed and installed all varying types of kitchens throughout Worcester, Bewdley, Stourport and Kidderminster. Modern or traditional, bespoke or standard, the usual dilemmas over worktops and cabinets abound.

In more recent years, we’ve noticed that one of the prevailing concepts customers ask us about is handleless kitchens. So we’ve put together a little list of the advantages of handleless kitchens.


One of the most striking aspects of handleless kitchens is they can fit seamlessly into any style, modern or classic. They provide sleek, straight lines that enhance the continuity of living space. They work exceptionally well in open-plan style kitchens with a flowing aesthetic.

Additional space

Although you may not always be conscious of it, kitchen handles take up a sizable amount of space. The way we walk around our kitchens accommodates for this, but handless kitchens enable you to move around freely when cooking, cleaning or hosting.

They are safer

We’ve all done it. Whacked our head on the handle when opening the cupboard door, or banged our knee when walking past the base unit. Handles can be even worse for little children as they can be the perfect height for walking into headfirst. Handleless kitchens eliminate this problem and provide a slightly safer environment you and your family home in Worcester, Bewdley, Stourport or Kidderminster.


Typically handless kitchens are more expensive. Touch open cupboards and drawers provide finesse and practicality but at a price. There are options to mix and match. You can have handless base units and handles on the kitchen cupboards to not blow the budget.
