I’ve often said that elements like handles, knobs and tapware are the jewellery for your kitchen; the finishing touches where you add a bit of personality and show your style. While we might play it safer with our cabinetry choices, handles don’t have as much real estate in a kitchen but they do have the ability to make a real impact. Which is why flatpack experts Kaboodle’s latest handles are so exciting!
Based on trends from Europe, the 12 new handles, knobs and cup handles come in an array of lovely finishes with designs to suit traditional kitchens and laundries through to the most modern.
While I’m a big fan of flatpack as a way to save on your renovations and have a flatpack kitchen myself, before now, the range of handles available from flatpack brands has often been limited, leading people like me to look elsewhere for these finishing touches. But there are certainly several I’d be happy to pick from this range!
You used to be lucky if you got a matt black option as well as the standard chrome but these new Kaboodle handles include those two as well as brushed bronze, brushed stainless steel, brushed amber gold, brushed nickel, polished stainless steel and worn gold, with various sizes on offer. Impressive, no?!
