For a seamless and modern look in your cabinetry, concealed profile handles are the perfect choice. These handles are embedded into the edge of the door or drawer, creating a sleek and minimalist aesthetic. While they may seem intimidating to install, with the right tools and a bit of patience, you can achieve professional-looking results.

Tools You’ll Need:

Concealed profile handles


Drill with a Forstner bit (diameter matching handle)

Measuring tape or ruler


Optical center finder (optional)

Step by Step Guide:

1. Determine Handle Placement:

Use a measuring tape and pencil to mark the center of the door or drawer where you want the handle to be. If using an optical center finder, simply align it with the edges and mark the center point.

2. Drill the Hole:

Using the Forstner bit, drill a hole at the marked center point. The depth of the hole should match the depth of the handle recess.

3. Insert the Handle:

Fit the concealed profile handle into the drilled hole. Ensure that it is facing the correct direction and that the screws align with the predrilled holes in the handle.

4. Secure the Handle:

Using the screwdriver, insert the screws into the predrilled holes and tighten them until the handle is securely in place. Do not overtighten the screws.

5. Adjust the Height:

Some concealed profile handles allow for height adjustment. If your handles have this feature, simply use a screwdriver to adjust the height until it is level with the surrounding cabinetry.


Use a sharp Forstner bit to create a clean and precise hole.

Test the fit of the handle before drilling the hole to ensure it aligns properly.

If the hole is too deep, use shims to raise the handle to the correct height.

Wipe down the handles and cabinetry with a damp cloth to remove any debris or fingerprints.


Installing concealed profile handles is a great way to enhance the look of your cabinetry. With a little bit of care and attention to detail, you can achieve a professional finish that will last for years to come. By following these tips and using the right tools, you can seamlessly integrate this modern and sophisticated hardware into your home decor.
