24 May The Benefits Of Soft Close Drawers & Cabinets? | Barbury Kitchens
Normal Or Soft Close Drawers? That Is The Question
Soft close is now available on drawers, door hinges, most internal storage options and even on some appliance doors.
The soft close mechanism allows drawers and cabinets to close silently and smoothly. When you close anything with a soft close fitted, just before it’s completely shut, the soft close mechanism takes over and closes the drawer or cabinet the rest of the way, slowly, safely and quietly. This feature is becoming more and more popular in kitchens and is now pretty much standard because of the many benefits.
Safe, no more little fingers caught in drawers and doors
The soft close mechanism closes cabinet doors and drawers slowly and softly, preventing little fingers from getting pinched. The feature also keeps exuberant children from slamming doors and drawers shut.
What a quiet life
The soft close feature ensures cabinet doors and drawers close gently and silently, keeping the drawer contents safe and in place. No more cutlery jumping out of the drawer or fragile items breaking as this is slammed shut.
Longer service life
Anything fitted with soft close ensures these are closed properly, lessening the need for maintenance. It also puts less stress on cabinet door hinges, door and drawer stops, and drawer rails, greatly extending the life of your cabinets.
The soft close feature is a great way to add a bit of luxury to your kitchen. We usually recommend them because of their many advantages. They can also be an attractive selling point if you decide to sell your home in the future.
