Popular Cabinet Styles to Upgrade Your Kitchen's Look

Posted on: 23 November 2021

Have you been thinking about giving your kitchen a new look? If so, you may want to consider starting with your kitchen cabinets. Kitchen cabinets are an important fixture in your home that really sets the tone in your kitchen, so you'll want their style to embody your design preferences. Here are a few styles you might consider for your kitchen renovation:

Traditional Cabinets

Of course, there's nothing wrong with the traditional style of cabinets. Many people like the classic look of raised panels on the front of their cabinet doors, for example. You will have plenty of wood choices to pick from as part of your renovation, and of course, you can choose the right stains or paints to enhance their looks just the way you want.

Shaker Cabinets

Today, many people are considering the Shaker style of cabinets. These cabinets are increasingly popular, not only because they look classic, but also because of their minimalistic appearance. If you want a classic and clean style, consider Shaker cabinets for a crisp, uncluttered kitchen. 

Glass Front Cabinets

If you like to show off what is behind your cabinet doors, you might consider cabinets with a glass front. Glass cabinets are made of solid frames that contain a glass door or a wood door with glass accents. You can choose amazing colors or tints for your glass, which can provide a nice view of what's inside. You also won't have to open multiple doors when searching for a specific item. The downside? If you want to impress guests you'll have to keep the contents neat.

Open Cabinets

Some people do not want to have cabinet doors at all and would rather have shelves that are completely open. If you want to replace your existing cabinets with open shelves, a contractor can help you. This style provides a minimalist look, and if you keep the shelves sparse it can also make your kitchen look larger.

Rustic Cabinets

Rustic cabinets are also a great option. Country-style cabinets are one subset of rustic cabinets. These cabinets look raw, offering a grainy or distressed look. The goal of this style of cabinet is to make you feel like you're in a farmhouse.

On the other hand, you might consider something more urban. Urban rustic cabinets are often more "clean" than the country style. They may also use darker woods and cleaner cuts.
