What Houzz contributors are saying:
Mix finishesThere’s a combination of rustic and industrial in this kitchen. The sawn wood base units contrast with jet black features, and the crisp white tongue-and-groove panelling adds another rustic element. It provides a strong contrast against the angled wall lights and the modern metro tiles inside the glass cabinets.The monochrome colour scheme is simple and minimal, so the wood panelling helps to add texture to the space.
Colours and finishesIf you’re concerned that handleless kitchens only come in a limited range of styles, don’t be: There’s a plethora of colours and finishes available. Not only do handleless designs come in a large range of colours, but available door and drawer finishes include gloss, glass, matt, curved and wood options, including rough-cut wood, as seen here. As mentioned earlier, with a true handleless option, your fingers won’t touch the front of a door as you open it. However, if you’re still worried about fingermarks – especially if you have small children in the house – it’s worth noting that they will show less on lighter, matt or textured finishes as compared to glossy dark tones.
