Are you considering renovating your kitchen? If so, the style of cabinetry will be one of your most important decisions. Cabinets are not just functional; they take up a lot of space in the kitchen, contributing to the overall look and feel of the space. Do you want your kitchen to look light and airy? Rustic and worn? Dark and moody? The cabinetry styles you have to choose from will give give you many options for shaping and perfecting the atmosphere of your new kitchen. Here are just a few different types of cabinetry to consider.
Face Frame Cabinets
Face frame cabinets is one of the most popular cabinetry styles. These cabinets get their name from the frame, or “face”, of wood that runs along the front edge of the cabinet doors and drawers. Shaker style cabinets are a popular type of face frame cabinets. This wood frame can be flush with the wood that surrounds each door and drawer, partly overlap the surrounding wood, or fully overlap the surrounding wood on all sides. If you are going for a rustic, colonial, or otherwise traditional-style kitchen, face frame cabinets are a great choice.
Full Frame Flat Face
If you’d rather go for a sleek, modern look, then full frame flat face cabinets will do the trick. This type of cabinet door is unadorned and flat on the front. Each door almost touches on each side. You can opt for either handles or a recessed cutout on the bottom or top of each drawer and door to open them. While face frame cabinets look great in wood, full frame flat face cabinets work well in synthetic materials, like laminate, glass, or lacquer.
For unique and sophisticated cabinets that show off your dishes, try windowed cabinets. These are cabinets that have windows in each door. This type of cabinet looks especially stunning with glass shelves and LED lighting installed inside. You can lend your kitchen a sophisticated flair with this type of delicate cabinets. If you don’t like glass but you still want a little something extra on your cabinet doors, try instead installing inserts of louvered panels, hole caning, patterned tin, or wire grating.
