Bumper pads in kitchen cabinets are small, often circular or rectangular, cushions made of materials like rubber, silicone, or felt. They are typically added to the inside corners of cabinet doors or drawers to reduce the noise level of closing the cabinet, and to prevent damage to the cabinet from repeated contact with the door or drawer.
When cabinet doors or drawers are closed, they can often create a loud noise due to the impact of the door or drawer against the cabinet frame. Bumper pads help to absorb this impact, resulting in a quieter closing experience. Additionally, without bumper pads, repeated impact can cause the wood or finish of the cabinet to wear down or become damaged.
Bumper pads are available in a range of sizes, shapes, and materials. They can be self-adhesive, requiring no hardware or tools to install, or they can be screwed in place for added stability. Bumper pads are a simple and cost-effective solution to reducing noise and protecting your cabinets.
