3 Reasons Soft-Close Drawers and Hinges Improve Cabinets

Have you or your children gone to close a kitchen cabinet only to have it slam shut? That loud noise was probably bothersome for any guests or other people who didn’t expect it.

As a contracting design group, WSG Kitchen & Bath continually looks out for new improvements to offer our clients. Soft-close drawers and hinges have become more common in kitchens across the US. This new option for cabinets allows people to have quieter cabinets that look cleaner. Let’s take a closer look.

Quiet the Racket

If someone in the house is a light sleeper, they have an option to sleep through the night. Soft-close drawers slow the slide of shelves to prevent a slamming noise. Soft-close hinges similarly soothe the cabinet doors from banging closed.

Soft-close fixtures are great if someone in the house has to get up early or stays up late. They will no longer disturb other members of the house. Without the added noise, people in the kitchen will no longer have to stress about making a racket.

Clean Up the Look

Soft-close hinges keep the metal parts hidden from view. With the hinges on the inside, the beautiful exterior of your wood cabinets is visible. The wood grain or color theme will not be marred by out of place metal.

Clean up is simple with soft-close hinges. You will be able to wipe down the cabinet doors and frame without catching your cloth.

Make it Simple

Do you or the kids forget to close the cabinet doors? Not a problem with soft-close hinges. The cabinet doors can now swing shut to keep you from running into them. If you have a lot in your hands or multitask as you put together a complicated meal, you won’t need to worry about the cabinet doors being left open.

Easily take advantage of all the shelving space with soft-close drawers. Stop stacking or taking out items and let the shelf roll out to you. After you have what you need, slide the drawer back in without damaging it.


Soft-close hinges are more popular than ever - and for a good reason. Enjoy the comforts these new additions bring to your kitchen. WSG Kitchen & Bath offer cabinet design and installation complete with soft-close hinges if you choose. Contact us today for a free consultation.
