Design trick to make your kitchen look bigger
Open the door to the benefits of designing a scheme with handleless cabinets
Handleless kitchen cabinets and drawers look sleek and contemporary, creating a uncluttered scheme that can be more or less minimalistic, as you wish.
There are different handleless cabinet options to choose from. A J-pull design has a door or drawer with an integral handle that is shaped like the letter J. You simply pop your fingers into the recess and pull to open. Another option is where there is a rail behind the door or drawer that creates space for your fingers to grip and pull. Lastly, there is the push-to-open type where pressing will prompt the door or drawer to spring gently ajar.
Choose flush fronts
Go for plain, slab door and drawer fronts in a pale colour to maximise the impression of space and light. Ideal for small kitchens, this is also a useful ploy in a multipurpose open-plan room. Why? Minimalistic cabinets make it easier to blend the kitchen area into the overall scheme.
Create an illusion
J-shaped handleless kitchen doors and drawers enhance the design of cabinets that have a textured surface or patterned finish. For instance, timber boards allow the J shape to be an integral element of the overall design. The technique is perfect for a wall of cabinets with pocket doors, which creates space-efficient storage in any kitchen.
