Enjoy the Many Benefits of Soft Close Hinges and Drawers
Kitchen technology has certainly advanced in the past few decades. We have gone from simple open and close cabinets and appliances with basic countertops to multiple types of cabinet options, countertops and appliances. With all this new technology in your kitchen, it is easy to overlook one of the more helpful innovations this past decade — soft close cabinets and drawers.
What is Soft Close and How Does it Work?
Soft close is a technology that prevents your drawers and cabinet doors from slamming closed. It is a special hinge or slide technology that shuts without an excessive or loud bang. Instead, the drawer or cabinet reaches a set point of closure, slows down and then closes with a soft click.
What are the Benefits of Soft Close Cabinets
There are many benefits of installing these new soft close hinges and drawer slides in your kitchen. The first advantage is noise reduction. The slamming of cabinets creates a commotion that can ruin the atmosphere of your kitchen--not to mention how nerve-rattling it can be after awhile! This is even more annoying when you have a noisy partner that gets up early in the morning to make coffee and is always slamming cabinets.
But there are more practical advantages as well. Soft close cabinets can save your cabinet facing and hardware from unnecessary stress. It can actually prolong the life of your cabinets and preserve the fresh, new look of the kitchen. One other practical advantage is safety. If you have children in your home, you know they are liable to pinch their fingers in cabinets and drawers. The soft close feature can help prevent this by giving you little ones more time to move their hands out of the way.
These new and useful pieces of hardware come in all different styles and fit any kitchen. Choose from premium models that handle more weight and are quieter, or less expensive models that have comparable abilities.
