            What are the design features of a handleless kitchen?

            Vertical lines

            Tall cupboards, like tower units, introduce vertical lines that will draw the eye up. This creates the impression of height for a more open feel, and is great for those with lower ceilings, or large storing needs.

            Horizontal lines

            Horizontal lines lead the eye through a room, giving the illusion of space– great if you have a small area to work with. This can be achieved using extra-wide drawers or banks of half-height wall units.

            Flush-fitting features

            Installing integrated or built-in cooking devices creates a pared-back look, whilst keeping everything easy to access. Look for models that have time-saving features for added functionality.

            Undermount bowls

            Fitted beneath work surfaces, undermount designs are great for reducing visual clutter for a minimal feel. This rimless style also stops dirt and crumbs from being trapped, making cleaning up a breeze.

            Square counters

            Square-edged work surfaces have a contemporary, geometric look and will introduce crisp lines. They will also create a stripped-back feel that is essential for creating this simplistic style.

            Profiles

            Profiles are fitted alongside cupboards to emphasise the linear lines of your furniture. Available in a variety of colours, including brushed aluminium and matt black, these pieces can be used to add visual interest.

            Plinths

            Kickboards are a great place to add another linear feature. Several colours and finishes are available, including matt black, copper, silver, and brass, all of which create an instant luxe look.

            Lights

            Lights are a great way to draw attention to key features in your design. Opt for LED strips under counters and alongside towers to emphasise the horizontal and vertical lines.
