Choosing the right kitchen cabinetry is like choosing the perfect dress. You may want something classic that you can accessorise, or you may perfect to have your dress or kitchen cabinets be the showstopper! Whatever you choose you need to remember like a beautiful dress your kitchen cabinets are the foundation of your space. So, whether you choose traditional white shaker style doors or sleek modern navy flat door kitchen cabinets. Without a doubt your cabinetry will set the tone for all of your other kitchen elements.
Thankfully undergoing a custom kitchen renovation means you can choose everything – splashback tiles, handles, flooring, splashbacks, benchtops, clever kitchen features and those stunning (or traditional) kitchen cabinets!
Kitchen cabinet styles
There are a few different types of kitchen cabinetry to decide between:
Sleek flat kitchen cabinets are best suited for modern or contemporary kitchens. Easy to clean and usually affordable. Flat kitchen cabinets can be installed with or without handles creating a modern or contemporary look.
Typically found in country-style kitchens, beadboard cabinets are often likened to wall panelling, making them also at home in Hampton-style kitchens.
Shaker style cabinets
Named after the Shakers, who produced well-made, functional cabinets in the 1800s, shaker cabinets are elegant and timeless. Easily identifiable by their five-piece design – single timber back with four smaller slats creating a border around the edge, the shaker-style cabinets are often found in Hampton-style kitchens.
Intricate, sleek, sturdy – there are many ways to describe custom timber cabinetry. Timber kitchen cabinets can be designed for your kitchen and style preferences, making them an excellent choice if you want unique woodwork or prefer to paint them a specific colour to match your desired aesthetic. Plus, custom cabinetry allows you to maximise your space with curved cabinetry or custom-made shelves for small or unusual spaces.
