If you are planning to renovate your kitchen, some of the most important decisions you’ll have to make concern your kitchen cabinets. Not only do your cabinets serve an essential function, but they also help define the overall look of the space. Our team at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center wants to help you make your new kitchen the best it can be, so we have put together this overview of kitchen cabinet styles to help you decide which is right for you.
- Shaker- One of the most popular styles of kitchen cabinets is the Shaker style. The doors feature a flat center panel surrounded by a raised frame, a classic silhouette that works well with both traditional and contemporary styling. This makes Shaker cabinets a highly flexibly choice and contributes to their continued popularity.
- Slab- If you’re looking for an even simpler, sleeker look, you may be interested in slab kitchen cabinets. Slab cabinets are also called flat cabinets, and as both names suggest, the doors consist of single slabs or flat wood with only the hardware for decor.
- Beadboard- Beadboard kitchen cabinets are characterized by the vertical planks that make up their doors. Each plank has a small ridge or indentation, aka “bead,” between it and the next, giving the cabinet door some visual interest and texture. This type of cabinet works well with farmhouse and cottage style kitchens but can complement other styles with a little creativity. Beadboard does take more effort to clean, but many homeowners find that a small price to pay for its cozy appeal.
