We have had kitchen handles made by Dimitri to give our current kitchen a tougher look. Our kitchen already had holes in the doors and drawers of the old handles so the new handles had to be made to measure. This turned out to be no problem at all and within a short time the handles were ready with the desired result. All in all, very satisfied!

Advantages of handles on your kitchen
Do you actually know what the advantages are of using handles on your kitchen?
The advantages of handles are:
- More robust - handles are more robust than, for example, a pressure system in a handleless kitchen. Pressure systems are very sensitive and still regularly break down.
- More storage space - when using handles, you don't need the extra space for the internal system with a pressure system.
- More direct - with handles you know what is happening. You pull a door or a drawer open or closed. A push system that you have to push closed or open with exactly the right force at the right place. Only then does the system really work.
In addition to the above-mentioned advantages, handles are also very attractive in a rural, industrial or modern kitchen!
Types of handles for kitchens

Craft process from design to production
Each handle is handmade. To get a unique kitchen, you have to use unique handles that have been created in a unique way.
Dimitri is a true artist.
He invents and manufactures many of the necessary machines himself.
This is also the case with the oven below, which is used, among other things, for the manufacture of the kitchen handle "Old Skool".
If you want to step into Dimitri's shoes or just take a look at the production process of the oven above, watch the videos on YouTube "Ribbon forge burner".
Are you still in the orientation phase for the handles of your kitchen? Maybe the following blogs can help you in your search for answers:
- How do you fit handles to a kitchen?
- Do I choose a kitchen with or without handles?
- Plate handles horizontal or vertical on your kitchen?
- How can I replace the handles on my kitchen?
Other questions we get from customers with the answers are:
QUESTION - What length should I use for the handles of our kitchen?
ANSWER - We are not a kitchen designer, but a designer and creator of the most beautiful handles for your kitchen. The choice in length is your own choice/responsibility. However, we can share our experiences. The length of the handles depends on various factors. Among other things, it depends on taste and space. All doors and drawers should be able to be used properly. We know from one of our partners that they use the following basic guideline: if you add 12 cm to the length of the handle (2 x 6 cm on each side), you get the most common widths of doors and drawers. Please note: this is only a guideline. It is also a good idea to decide for yourself what length handles you need for your kitchen.
