Soft Close Features: Are they worth the money?

So, you’re starting your kitchen remodel and planning out the budget. You remember someone mentioning soft close doors and hinges as something to be added to your cabinets. You think to yourself, do I really need them? Is it worth the extra money?

Well, I am here to tell you it is absolutely worth the extra money. Today people are looking for the best and most up-to-date features for anything and everything in their home. If you’re looking to start a family or have little ones crawling around, I would definitely suggest adding the soft close features to your cabinets. They not only help with sound plus wear and tear on your cabinets, but they also are very safe.


You know those children who go into kitchens and just open and shut every door they can get their hands on? (Most children usually!) Adding soft close to your cabinets means you’ll never have to hear a door slammed again. These hinges will ensure the door shuts smoothly and silently. In addition, they also prevents fingers from being slammed in doors due to the door closing too quickly. This is a major bonus for families with young children. A kitchen can be a dangerous place for a child, so this feature is here to help make it a little safer. You won’t have to constantly remind your children to be gentle when they close a cabinet door or drawer. It will take away a lot of the frustration and worry you might have when your little one is running around.

It assists with the maintenance and longevity of your kitchen cabinets. They lessen the stress on the hinges and hinge plates over the years. In turn, you will extend the life of your beautiful new kitchen cabinets. If you’re going to spend a little extra money on a new kitchen, adding soft close hinges is definitely something you should consider.
