Stop Your Cabinets Slamming Shut



There are few things more aggravating than the constant slamming of cabinets and doors, but your home shouldn’t be a stressful atmosphere. In a follow-up to our previous blog about Peaceful Bedroom Design, this blog will help you to craft peace into your house design with some handy tips, tricks and tools.



Blum Cabinet Hinges


Our Blum cabinet hinges are easy to install following our detailed instructions and are well worth your time and resources. Often used to remodel and upscale kitchen cabinets for the home, they should be something that every designer incorporates into her or his ideas. We put a priority on creating spaces which are cohesive, peaceful and, perhaps most importantly, will last for many years to come.

For this reason, you might be interested in purchasing these cabinet hinges in bulk for creating a seamless experience in the properties that you renovate, or you could be carrying out some simple home D.I.Y. to fix problems that your designers left when you first moved in.

To de-stress your home, we recommend using Blum cabinet hinges; they are long-lasting and can be combined with soft close technology like Blumotion dampers to ensure stress-free no-slamming homes.














Planning a Great Kitchen


If you’re going to be replacing the hinges on your cabinets, you might benefit from stopping to consider your kitchen as a whole before you get stuck in. If you understand how your space is currently used, you will be able to tailor your equipment to better suit your experience. For example, replacing the hinges of your cabinets is the perfect chance to consider how the doors of your cabinets are opening – do they obstruct any kitchen features when they open?

If you are finding that opening your doors are indeed impeding your use of the kitchen – if opening the cupboard obstructs a microwave or drawers – then perhaps you should be considering the Blum Aventos Lift Systems which we sell from our online store. These beautiful ergonomic designs allow you to access cabinet space by lifting-up the door.

Automatically designed to be quiet closing and effortless to open, these designs could be a welcome upgrade to your kitchen’s upper cabinets. We even wrote a blog on the beauty of Aventos Lift Systems: Perfect for Upper Kitchen Cupboards.



Don’t Forget the Doors


Cabinets aren’t the only things that slam shut, doors are often responsible for the occasional slam. For this reason, we recommend investing in door closers in corporate buildings, as well as finger guards to provide safety measures against an accident occurring in the future.



Too Much Stuff


Having too much stuff can stress out any homeowner and while not every homeowner can stand to live a minimalist life, a little de-cluttering can go a long way. This mindset can be applied to home designing too, however, as you should always be looking to avoid creating cramped and severe spaces.

If you know you need to fit a set of drawers, an island, an oven and a hob into the kitchen but the overall feel of the room is starting to look like a bit of squeeze then you need to take a step back and put on your thinking hat. Not every problem is solved by cramming all the necessary items into the room, sometimes you just need a little innovation, like our smart Blum Space Tower.


Overall, there is lots that you can do to make your next home a centre for relaxation and peace. Inhabitants will love the extra thought and care apparent in the execution of each room. We have plenty of innovative home design features available in our store that will enable you to create long-lasting and comfortable homes.
