Cabinet & Casegoods Hardware: Trends & Wish List Items

Posted: 03/08/2012 4:40PM


Listed below are some trends for drawer slides and hinges for cabinets and casegoods, and what's on the horizon for these hardware items.

Drawer slides: In addition to quiet closing, smooth-running action and full extension in their drawer slides, consumers continue to want easy-closing action integrated into more products. Also on people’s wish list: the ability to use the same slide for all applications, including overlay or inset drawers, face-frame and frameless cabinets, and side mount or bottom mount applications. Greater adjustability — side-to-side, height, depth and rear tilt ­— also make consumers’ list of requests.

Blum Hinges: Consumers want to see soft-closing options expanded to wider range of door styles, thicknesses and sizes, for face-frame, frameless as well as doors made from glass or other media. Hinges that offer wider angle openings are also becoming increasingly desired. Also increasingly popular are hinges with adjustable soft-close dampers; where the dampening mechanism is fully integrated and concealed in the hinge housing, for cleaner, sharper look.
