3 Benefits of Soft Close Cabinet Drawers and Doors
How often do you go to close a cabinet door or drawer and it slams shut, making a seriously loud noise and throwing the contents of the cabinet or drawer all about? If you're like the millions of people without soft-close hinges, then it probably happens more often than you'd like it to. Not to mention, the hip-bump technique to close a cabinet drawer usually results in a loud bang and that's like your go-to move.
Luckily for you and everyone else who hates it when their cabinets slam shut, it's relatively easy to install soft-close hinges or dampers. But before you decide yes or no, take a minute to look over the benefits of installing some soft-close hardware for cabinets.
Slamming doors is impossible
Starting with the obvious benefit, with some upgraded soft-close hardware products, you never have to worry about slamming your cabinet doors shut ever again. That means late night trips to the kitchen can be your secret, a little too much strength doesn't make a loud noise, children don't have to be told not to slam the doors, and just about any other byproduct benefit that you can think of.
Contents stay in place
As stated before, when you slam a drawer you often send everything inside flying about, making your utensils drawer into a junk drawer in seconds flat. Moreover, if you have glass inlays in your cabinet doors or fragile household items behind those doors, you can potentially be cleaning up some broken glass after a hard close. Soft-close door and cabinet hardware can make sure your china stays intact.
No pinched fingers
You slam the drawer shut without realizing your finger was in the way or worse, your child's finger was in the way. Not a fun or pleasant experience by any means. Soft close cabinet door hinges and soft close drawer slides can help protect everyone's fingers from an accidental and painful pinch.
Adding soft close drawer runners and slides along with cabinet hinges can provide numerous benefits to your kitchen and the integrity of your cabinetry. You don't have to add to the 10.2 million kitchen remodels or 14.2 million bathroom remodels for some update cabinets. Opt for soft close drawers and cabinets instead.
