The Eton Matt Carbon True Handleless kitchen creates a sleek, quality look that oozes style. Teamed with the Eton Matt Dove Grey it gives a striking, premium finish.
The popularity of handleless kitchens has blossomed across the premium kitchen sector, largely due to the beautifully sleek and clean lines it offers. Now, adding this luxury style to its latest collection, Benchmarx Kitchens has unveiled a True Handleless range that allows you to recreate this look with ease.
The True Handleless collection features nine of Benchmarx Kitchens’ new and existing slab fronted doors but, as so many of these doors work together, it opens up the possibilities to mix and match styles, colours and finishes, to create countless looks that reflect your style. Choose from industrial chic greys, stunning textured pale oak effect, fresh whites and delicate pastels to create a look you will love.
The True Handleless system works by incorporating a top rail on which the worktop sits, allowing your fingers to slot into the top of the cupboard or drawer.
Unlike many versions currently on the market, Benchmarx Kitchens has worked hard to ensure that you only need one rail fitting at the top of the cabinetry. Subsequent drawers are push open, leading to a stunning, neat finish and removing need for a second rail which can break up the clean lines. Continuing this sleek look to top cupboards and around appliances, the opening bar is positioned to the side of the cupboard to maintain a handle-free effect.
The True Handleless range also lends itself to creating a stand out feature island too, as it only requires one simple bar at the top, ensuring that the streamlined look can continue across its entirety.
Upgraded drawer boxers include Blum Intivo inside, which has a dark grey, slim profile and soft close that again increases the all-round, premium feel.
The Full True Handleless Range:
Eton: Matt Carbon, Matt Dove Grey, Gloss White, Gloss Light Grey, Gloss Cream
Benchmarx Kitchens’ popular Eton range lends itself perfectly to the clean, sleek look that True Handleless can create. Choose from matt finishes that diffuse the light softly for a very premium look to a gloss shine that bounces light around the room giving the impression of airy space.
The new Matt Carbon hue has a rich depth that looks great offset with the slightly lighter shade of Matt Dove Grey, for a mix that has a top of the range look with an affordable price tag.
For a fresh look, Gloss white remains the obvious choice. Working perfectly with muted shades through to brighter backdrops, its appeal is timeless. With the addition of the handleless feature it becomes the epitome of simple sleekness.
The Gloss Cream and Gloss Light Grey options provide the softer side of the new neutrals palette for those who feel white is too stark for their look. Great for open plan areas, these shades can be easily accessorised with the latest blush pinks, greys and delicate pastel shades for a welcoming final style.
New to the Benchmarx Kitchens collection, the Richmond Oak range features a striking, of-the-moment pale oak colourway that works perfectly with the contemporary handleless frame for a truly modern take on a wooden kitchen.
What stands this range apart is its stunning textured finish that echoes the feel and warmth of real wood combined with the practicality and durability of a PVC wrap finish. The matt surface mimics the naturally occurring knots and grains you’d expect in a wood finish to ensure the perfect 3D quality.
Use alone or mix and match with the Eton collection to create your own unique style.
Nordica Blue – (Nordica White and Grey – Coming Soon)
Fresh pastels maintain their appeal in the kitchen as they are so easy to live with, and the Nordica Blue kitchen from Benchmarx Kitchens adds the ideal amount of colour without being overpowering.
Its sleek acrylic finish has an inherent contemporary feel so works perfectly in the True Handleless format to create a look that is crisp and energising. Team with white for a bright, airy impression or add touches of natural wood and black appliances and taps, for a look that has unmistakable contemporary chic.
Which Worktop Works Best?
As the worktop is raised off the cupboard doors it become a feature in its own right.
As you can see under the worktop, this needs to be taken into account when choosing what to opt for. Solid surfaces such as granite, quartz, or the Apollo Slab Tech and the advanced Zenith laminate offer the best finish as it looks just as good underneath as it does from above.
You also have the option to choose the profile which best suits your style. Square-edged worktops instantly give a contemporary feel however, we are seeing alternatives such as Shark Nose styles coming through to open up the possibilities.
For extra interest, the addition of under-counter lighting can make the worktop look as though it is floating too.
As with all Benchmarx Kitchens’ products, The True Handleless range comes as a rigid format. This range is also pre-notched to make installation easier and quicker for your fitter.
