What are Soft Close Cabinets?

Soft close cabinets are what self close cabinets wish they could be like. With specially designed hinges, they allow drawers and cabinets to not slam shut, and instead they slowly and silently close. These hinges have a hydraulic system built into them, so when you close the door these hydraulics take charge by slowly and silently closing the door in somewhat of a gliding motion. And the best part is, not only can you incorporate soft close cabinets, but you can also invest in soft close drawers to complete your ultimate silent kitchen!

It’s best to purchase cabinets with soft close hinges already built in. This means that they will integrate seamlessly with the design, and you save some time by not having to worry about ordering hinges.

Try thinking of one reason as to why you would not want soft close cabinetry. That’s right, there is not one possible reason as to why you would not want that added peace and quiet!

Soft close hinges are amazing for more reasons than just the convenience of quiet cabinets. If you are thinking of starting a family, or maybe you already have little ones wandering around, soft close cabinets only add to the safety of the kitchen. If they were to open or close a cabinet, there won’t be a chance of little fingers being caught and potentially hurt.

Soft Close Cabinets Increase Resale Value

When looking in the long term, soft close cabinets also have the potential to increase your home's overall value for resale. Not by much, but for the certain home buyer, soft close cabinetry can be a big component on whether or not the kitchen works for them, which also is a big component to whether or not they will want to purchase the home.

Incorporating soft close hinges will also benefit your cabinets in the long term. These hinges allow cabinets to close softly and gently, so there is no blunt impact of the door hitting the cabinet box, decreasing the chances for any damage. With self close cabinets, the cabinet frame can get scuffed and marked up from the door slamming.  This can also cause damage to the front cabinet door over time.
