Why are handle-less kitchens a great design solution?
Handle-less kitchens are one of our most popular designs and it’s easy to see why. You can create a sleek and subtle design, with maximum impact to the surrounding environment. A handle-less kitchen will blend seamlessly with other rooms and styles in your home, whether you have an ultra-modern house or a converted barn. Handle-less kitchens have an effortless, timeless look, so you needn’t worry about them looking dated in years to come. The absence of handles also means the doors are a lot easier to clean and dirt won’t gather in those hard to reach places. There’s also such a wide selection of colours and materials to choose from in handle-less designs.
Is there a dining set you would recommend for regular use as the al fresco dining season ends?
Ceramic top dining tables are the perfect modern solution for everyday living, giving the aesthetic beauty of real stone, without the hassle of having to worry about heat damage or staining as many ceramic tops are non-porous.
The Cantania Table teamed with the Jordan chair make a perfect combination, with the chrome legs of the Jordan chair perfectly complementing the stylishly angled legs of the Cantania table.
