While all bumpers basically do the same thing — protect your cabinets from scratches and reduce that annoying noise when doors get closed too hard — the best cabinet door bumpers are durable, easy to apply with self-adhesive backing, and blend in seamlessly with your decor.
Cabinet door bumpers are usually made from rubber, plastic, or felt. While these options all offer good cushioning, plastic and rubber tend to be more durable than felt when it comes to repeated opening and closing. On the other hand, felt offers a little more noise reduction but can pick up dust more easily. As far as size, the thicker the pad, the more noise reduction you’ll get, but keep in mind: Thicker bumpers may make your cabinet doors stick out slightly when closed.
In terms of color, most of the bumpers on this list are clear or colored to blend in with your cabinets, so they blend in well. And all of these bumpers are easy to apply with strong self-adhesive backings.
In addition to making cabinets quieter, bumpers can be used on drawers, the backs of picture frames, on the bottoms of vases, and other items for added protection and reduced noise. Most importantly, with these cabinet door bumpers, everyone in your house can open and close the cupboards in sweet silence.
