A functional and aesthetic kitchen is the ultimate vision for most homeowners. Cabinets play a significant role in kitchen remodeling because they have a big job to do; they need to be visually appealing while keeping us organized. You can expect the kitchen cabinets to be the most significant investment of your renovation, comprising about 35% of the budget.

Shaker cabinets:  the most popular

There’s nothing like a classic design that never goes out of style and is versatile enough to fit into any decor, from the most traditional to contemporary or California beach.  Shaker cabinets have a clean and uncluttered style that works with any countertops and kitchen flooring, and they look just as good in a black hue as they do in white, blue or gray. Typical woods are cherry, maple, hickory, and oak.

These consist of flat panels with square frames and, while they avoid ornamentation, you can modify them with various finishes, beveled edges, or fixtures to personalize them. Construction is sturdy, so you can count on them lasting a long time.

Other cabinet styles 

Louvered cabinets are another option with horizontal wooden slats, like the ones we often see on windows or doors, louvers instead of center panels.  They are pricey but aesthetically worth it.  While most cabinets are contouring, slab cabinets have no door frames and no recessing raised panels or arches.  These lie flat and offer a modern, contemporary, and minimalist look for the kitchen or bath. 

As the name implies, inset-style cabinets have the doors sit inside the cabinet frame instead of the typically outside cabinet doors. This cabinet style is expensive, but it has a classic design that will last for years. Others include distressed cabinets, perfect for an antique-style kitchen; headboards with ridges or “beads,” which give the door texture;  raised panels, where the center is a little higher than the sides and glass front ones, often referred to as mullion.
