The Handle Debate Get the Right Style for Your Kitchen and Bathrooms

When it comes to creating incredible interior style the impact is in the little details and finishes. Your choice of handles for your kitchen, bathroom, laundry, robe or office may feel like a small choice but it can have a big effect.

Weston Kitchens + Bathrooms take you through some of the many options in handles and closing mechanisms for kitchens, bathrooms and more.


One of the most popular trends in bathrooms and kitchens right now. Recessed rails offer a minimalist, handle free look. It’s a modern approach that’s very versatile. There are so many colour and material options with recessed rail. You can choose to match door and draw colours for a clean and streamlined appearance. Or, for more of a dramatic statement create colour contrast with black or stainless steel. Recessed rail is a very cost effective option, suitable for every room in your house or office. Perfect for any modern space. 


There are so many different handle options, whether your style is modern, provincial, contemporary or somewhere in between, there will always be a type to suit every space.

The trick is choosing what’s right for you. If you like current and cutting edge the trend for right now is for slimline square edge handles all installed horizontally for a sleek and minimal effect. Neutral polished or satin chrome works beautifully with modern style handles. For a more traditional feel you may consider a more ornate style in a black, white or brass finish. Depending on the rest of your décor choosing a colour finish like white or black may create a lovely contrast that livens up the room. We can take you through all the options and help you choose a handle that not only looks great but functions the way you want too.


Like the streamlined effect of recessed rails but want to take the minimalist effect up a notch? Servo-drive, an electric motion support system by Blum offers a completely flat-faced, handle free appearance for cupboards and doors. Simply touch the door or draw and it will gently open; another single touch and it will automatically and silently close. This electronic system does require a power point at the rear of the cupboard or draw unit, however even in the case of a power failure you can take control of the system and the fittings stay fully functional. It’s a more expensive option, but one that can create amazing wow factor in your home. Take a look at Servo-drive in action:
