We are all familiar with the old adages ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ or ‘it’s what’s inside that counts’. For drawer solutions from Blum, this rings true when referring to the fittings and hardware that hide behind the façades of the drawer fronts. Whilst the drawers may be beautiful to look at, are the drawers beautiful on the inside too?
Beauty also lies in the design of the drawer sides eg. raw wood, metal, glass design elements continuing the outer aesthetic to the interior. Fittings are the heart of furniture and provide the main function. A beautiful looking drawer won’t be remembered for its outer appearance should the inside look tacky or if it doesn’t function properly. However, if the drawer glides open and looks good on the inside too, chances are that the additional feel-good factor will add to the overall experience.
1. Original Blum quality
Blum has total confidence in the superior quality of its hardware. All Blum products undergo intensive motion and load testing, under extreme conditions, to produce products that are functional, durable and can withstand everyday use.
2. A wide range of solutionsBlum offers a wide range of solutions for all drawer types. Wooden drawers can be equipped with concealed runners fitted on the underside of the base, keeping the sides clear of exposed hardware. (eg. TANDEM and MOVENTO) Metal drawer box systems offer a range of elegant designs with various design options for the drawer sides. (eg. TANDEMBOX and LEGRABOX). The drawer runners are hidden from view and operate with extraordinary quality of motion. Even heavily laden drawers have a feather-light glide and high stability.
3. Unique soft-close motion technology
Blum’s unique technology, BLUMOTION, provides smooth running action and ultimate soft-closing for drawers. BLUMOTION adds that extra special feel-good factor. Whilst this may seem like a luxury, once you’ve experienced it you will never go back.
4. Drawer interior organizationBlum has practical solutions to organize the interior drawer space. The inner dividing systems allow you to sort out the contents so they can be neatly arranged and easily found. (eg. ORGA-LINE and AMBIA-LINE)
5. Lifetime Guarantee
Blum drawer systems have proven, reliable functionality and are tested to 200 000 opening and closing cycles. Blum fittings carry a guarantee against product failure for the lifetime of the furniture.
It is important to choose high-quality, functional fittings to ensure longevity. When choosing your drawers, test samples in a showroom to experience the motion firsthand – open, close then decide. Never underestimate the important role that fittings play in making your drawers work. Investing in good quality, functional fittings will ensure that your drawers will work perfectly for a long time.
