4 Most Popular Kitchen Cabinet Styles
Keep in mind that this list of cabinet styles is not exhaustive. However, it does provide an excellent starting point for you to center in on a style that you love. The following are 4 popular kitchen cabinet styles for any home.
Based on traditional Shaker-style furniture, Shaker cabinets feature clean lines and a minimalistic look. Much like a picture frame, each drawer and cabinet is framed by 4 pieces with a 5th flat piece acting as the “picture” in the middle. Shaker cabinetry is extremely versatile and goes well in kitchens of all types, including modern, rustic, large, and small. Additionally, Shaker cabinets look great in a wide variety of colors, making it easy to match your kitchen to the rest of your home. Or, you can create a kitchen that is a total contrast to the rest of your home! It’s all about the freedom to express creativity.
For many people, traditional cabinets provide a feeling of warmth or nostalgia. Originally made popular in Europe, traditional cabinets often feature beautiful woods and rich earth tones. Decorative carvings typically add a little “flair” to the corners and knobs of the cabinets. Most of the time, traditional cabinets fit best in classic homes. They are beautiful without being overly sleek and modern, and they appeal to old and young alike.
3. Country or Farmhouse
The farmhouse look has grown increasingly popular in recent years, and cabinetry can help seal the deal. Generally speaking, country or farmhouse cabinets feature slightly distressed or reclaimed wood, often in varying shades of white, tan, and gray. Iron knobs provide additional decoration. Overall, the goal of a country cabinet is to create a bright, sunny feeling in the kitchen. Farmhouse cabinetry goes particularly well with hardwood flooring and lends an air of casualty to a home. The farmhouse look is great for entertaining!
When it comes to modern cabinetry, the sleeker the better. Modern cabinets boast clean lines, sharp corners, and little decoration. Typically, modern cabinets come in shades of charcoal, black, navy, etc. Many homeowners pair their modern cabinets with stainless steel appliances and granite or Corian countertops. One benefit of a more modern look is the freedom to decorate with other items, as the cabinets won’t clash with additional ornamentation.
