There are so many different styles of kitchen cabinetry to choose from when you are renovating your space, each with their own pros and cons. We’ve broken down the top 5 styles, and some things you should consider when selecting your kitchen cabinetry.
Raised Panel Kitchen Cabinets
Raised panel kitchen cabinets are a super popular choice among our clients, and it’s easy to see why. Raised panel kitchen cabinets are a blank slate, and with the right hardware and appliances, can shape shift from traditional too eclectic. This is a great option if you’re looking for a more traditional kitchen cabinetry design. It’s best to use more modern hardware, like the kitchen pictured above, to keep raised kitchen cabinets from looking too traditional.
Slab Kitchen Cabinetry
Slab kitchen cabinets (also referred to as flat-front cabinets) are the modern minimalist dream. This kind of cabinetry can come completely flush, with opening handles hidden at the base, or with hardware to add a bit of interest. Slab cabinets are also cheaper than some of the other options on this list because they don’t have as much detail. As you can see in the image above, this kind of cabinet really makes grained wood stand out as the star of the show.
Inset Kitchen Cabinetry
Love the look of a raised panel but want something a little more unique? Inset kitchen cabinetry is the perfect option. Inset hinges add beautiful detail, however they may come at a higher cost, and you may be able to see the hinges, so make sure you pick something that matches your hardware.
Glass-Front Kitchen Cabinets
Glass-front kitchen cabinetry is the perfect way to show off your favourite dish ware. When working on a kitchen design for our clients, we recommend using glass-front cabinetry for some of your cabinets, not all of them. This makes it easy to show of your best items while keeping messier areas hidden.
Shaker Style Kitchen Cabinets
Shaker-style kitchen cabinets are a popular choice for kitchen renovations. This style is traditional, but maintains its modern feel, which makes it a great investment over time. Shaker cabinets fit with pretty much any design style, and can be easily combined with other styles like slab or glass-front kitchen cabinets for a more interesting overall look.
No matter what your style is, having the right kitchen cabinetry to compliment it is a step towards achieving your dream kitchen. If you like what you see here, check out our Instagram for more of our recent projects, or click here to contact us for more information.
