Guidelines for Choosing Kitchen Cabinets

From Shaker to flat panel cabinets, glass knobs to recessed pulls, here are some features designers have selected to help you select your ideal kitchen.

Door Styles

Your cabinet door style may be your biggest kitchen expense. Among the popular options for wooden cabinet doors are louver, flat, inset, bead board or the timeless Shaker style. Ecofriendly materials are now coming into vogue. In addition, glass cabinet doors display your lovely dishes and open up your kitchen. Other options include flip­up doors, pocket doors and corner drawers. Some homeowners opt for open shelving, while others mix and match different styles.

Hardware Styles

Your choice of drawer pulls and knobs makes a big difference in the kitchen’s finished look. Clean, simple, contemporary pulls work best with modern­looking flat­panel cabinets. Raised­panel cabinetry tends to suit traditional kitchens, and classic, old­world fixtures fit this style beautifully.

Colors and Finishes

Colorful kitchen cabinetry has made a big comeback. Try a combination of two different cabinet colors. For the not­too­bold look, contrast a single bright color with neutral finishes. Stains are a great way to get color on your kitchen cabinetry while showing off the wood’s beauty. For a low maintenance option, try a distressed finish. It offers a warm, bright look that can actually embrace wear and tear.

Molding and Details

Adding molding is an easy, great way to enhance the custom look of your cabinetry.
