Bauformat Handleless Kitchens  

If you’re looking to update your kitchen with a modern or contemporary look, handleless kitchens are the way to go. This style has become increasingly popular over the past few decades, as it lends a sleek and modern aesthetic to any kitchen. While classic designs such as Shaker, painted or natural wood grain finish are perfect for period homes or new-builds in need of added character, handleless kitchens will complement all kinds of property and interior décor. 

Sleek and streamlined, a handleless kitchen design offers many benefits, from enhancing a feeling of space in a small kitchen to being quick and easy to clean. And with everything from high gloss finishes, muted matt palettes, to stone, ceramic and concrete effects, at Bauformat we have a handleless kitchen for every taste and every home.

What is a handleless kitchen?

Modern kitchen design is now such that kitchen handles are available by choice rather necessity. Handleless kitchens are defined by their lack of visible handles or hardware. Instead, they often incorporate hidden push-to-open mechanisms that give the kitchen cabinets a clean and streamlined look. In this respect, ‘Streamlined’ refers to an uninterrupted and efficient flow of cabinetry which is minimalist and modern in appearance. 

At Bauformat we have a wide range of handleless kitchens which can be customized to suit any style or budget. Whether you’re looking for a high-end kitchen with all the bells and whistles, or a more simple and affordable option, we definitely a handleless kitchen to meet your requirements. 

Why choose a handleless kitchen?

A timeless classic, handleless kitchens appeal for their sleek, modern and tidy aesthetic, giving any space a simple, fuss-free finish. With no handles to detract from or break up the run of cabinets, the result is an ergonomic flow of furniture that complements compact kitchens as much as large, open-plan schemes. The end result is minimal and modern, allowing accent tones, appliances and accessories to take centre stage.

Benefits of a Handleless Kitchen Design

If you’re still not sure if handleless is for you, here are just some of the reasons many of our customers choose this fresh and minimalist look: –

  • Clean and contemporary, handleless cabinets create a clutter-free finish that keeps everything simple. It’s also an enduring, timeless style that will look just as stunning in years to come, so you know you’re making a good investment. 
  • Versatile handleless kitchen doors are available in a myriad of options to suit every interior. There are dark and dramatic tones for instant impact, bold brights to add a pop of colour to a neutral space, flowing curves for a softer look (which is also a great option for families as it avoids sharp edges) and two-tone designs for a mix and match approach. 
  • Handleless kitchen designs are often used to create a feeling of space in a compact kitchen. This is because the lack of handles ensures the units remain sleek and streamlined with a fuss-free finish.


  • Many customers appreciate the easy-clean finish of a handleless kitchen. Just a simple wipe down with a damp cloth is all that’s needed, with no awkward handles to work around. Great for a hygienic space, as there are no nooks and crannies for dirt and germs to hide. This makes handleless kitchens ideal for busy families or anyone who wants to spend less time cleaning! 
  • Handleless kitchen doors can also be carried through to the utility room, dining area and even a living space within an open-plan scheme. This allows furniture to create a uniform, coordinated look throughout your home. 
  • This style of kitchen is also easy to work in, as handleless doors can be opened and closed simply and easily, suitable for all ages and abilities. Bauformat’s TIP-ON mechanically assisted opening, for instance, is perfect for future-proofing your home. 
  •  It’s still possible to create a feature with handleless doors. Bauformat’s horizontal grip ledges in an illuminated, matt, silky gloss or stainless steel finish will create instant wow factor within your kitchen space.
