Handles and recessed grip profiles, we compare solutions


Handles lend a touch of style, while recessed grip profiles offer a simple yet striking appearance to the setting: two door opening solutions compared.

Nothing is simple when it comes to building your own domestic haven and even the most mundane decision becomes decisive for furnishing spaces with personality. The door opening must be practical and functional, and blend in seamlessly with its surroundings, to become a genuine aesthetic and design element.


There are various types of recessed grip profiles and handles to choose from, which make for an incredibly wide choice to meet all needs, to be carefully assessed when designing a kitchen and creating a welcoming living space.

Functional, even in their aesthetics, handles become genuine decorative details.

Whether the handles are for the kitchen or for the living room, they are elements that lend a touch of absolute personality to their surrounding environment.


Handle design has evolved with time. Today, in fact, they come in all shapes, sizes, materials and colours. They are well suited to industrial or elegant kitchens, but are just as suitable for classic or modern living rooms. However, it is essential that they always match the rest of the furniture to perfection, in order to afford extreme harmony for all our surroundings.

Recessed grip profile opening systems are very trendy and popular and should also be considered when designing kitchens or living rooms.

Recessed grip profiles are recessed into the inside the doors or drawers. They appear compact, while remaining practical, and are a valid alternative to handles.


They also feature various grips and sizes, and are usually the preferred solution for fans of minimal style and clean-cut design, where all materials come together, without interruption. In fact, in a setting where clean-cut styling is a must, recessed grip profiles are just the right system to achieve this kind of result. They blend perfectly with the surfaces, highlighting the beauty of the materials, which thus become the undisputed star attractions of impeccable compositions.
