The true gripAs its name implies, this style lacks handles on all drawer and cupboard doors. Various options exist, but a ‘true handleless’ style is created through recessing a solid stainless steel channel into the top line of the cabinet. This creates a gap for your fingers between the top of the door (or drawer) and the underside of a worktop. Your fingers curl around the surface edge and onto the back of the door or drawer, pulling it forwards to open. The benefit of grabbing the back of the door is you don’t need to touch the front, so there shouldn’t be any fingermarks. On a run of base units containing sets of drawers one above the other (as pictured), a recessed channel is inserted into the mid-line of the carcass to allow full access to the bottom drawer. In all cases, the stainless steel channel is only inserted after the kitchen is fitted, ensuring it’s continuous throughout the entirety of a run of units and/or an island. This is best for a sleek and impressive kitchen look.
Brighten up your cook spaceThis stylish, modern kitchen proves that indigo blue doesn’t just work for bathrooms and boys’ rooms. While most of us might have played it safe with a grey or earthy neutral against the white worktops and floor, look how much energy and personality the planes of dramatic blue bring.And don’t forget, dark blue door fronts will also disguise mucky fingerprints and smudges, too – a boon for the open-plan family kitchen.
