Con: Handless doors require more cleaning
Handless kitchens have a channel at the top of each door or drawer allowing enough space to be able to pull open. Unfortunately, this channel becomes a bit of a dirt collector. If you decide handless doors are for you, you’ll find yourself regularly cleaning out dust and crumbs from the channel – this is something you need to consider if you prefer to keep your home as low maintenance as possible.
Pro: Handless doors don’t hurt
We’ve all been there, rushing around the kitchen to bash our hip or head on a cupboard or drawer handle. It hurts. Handless doors bring you no pain. We deserve to be able to rush around our kitchen without having to dodge handles.
This is something that parents will certainly appreciate, having one less thing for you to worry about your kids walking into is a plus. It’s a no brainer really.
Con: Handless doors might come at an expense
This may come at a surprise to some people, but handless doors generally cost more than conventional doors with handles. The additional labour involved during the manufacturing process, paired with the specialist hardware needed to create handless doors and drawers are the reasons for this. Price is something that needs to be considered, if you’re working to a tight budget, we recommend pricing up a handless and then a conventional kitchen for an accurate comparison. If you’d like help comparing prices, contact us today, we’d be happy to help.
Pro: Handless doors complement accessories
Kitchen accessories play a huge part in the overall look of your kitchen. The simplistic look that handless kitchens offer will highly complement modern coffee machines, toasters and kettles. If you’re a homeowner that owns a stunning set of kitchen accessories, a handless kitchen is perfect for you.
To wrap things up, a handless kitchen brings a stylish, modern and safe kitchen into your home, for only a little extra money and maintenance. At Happy Doors, we believe a handless kitchen is a great choice for anyone looking to upgrade their kitchen.
