Your Guide to Choosing Kitchen Cabinets

Building a new home or updating your kitchen? There are so many options and ideas to consider for kitchen cabinet styles, hardware choices, colors, finishes and more.  The right kitchen cabinets can make or break your kitchen’s functionality and style — not to mention your budget. Let our team help you select the kitchen cabinet that will make your kitchen a focal part of your home.  Our team can walk you through the process, from start to finish.  There are many resource guides online covering everything from Shaker to flat panel, from corbels to aprons, from glass knobs to recessed pulls.

Door Style

Shaker, flat or inset? Your cabinet door style is important — it may be your biggest kitchen expense, after all — but choosing it doesn’t have to be stressful. Which of these popular cabinet doors fit with your home’s style.

Who says cabinets have to be all wood?  Installing some clear glass doors allows you to put your best dishes on display and open up your kitchen to light and space with glass cabinets.

Get creative!  Go beyond the standard swinging door in your new kitchen. Flip-up doors, pocket doors and corner drawers can make your cabinets more functional and your life easier.

If you’d rather stick with something more traditional for your cabinets, then the timeless Shaker style may be for you. You can make this look work with different counter, hardware and backsplash materials.  Add a more traditional furniture style to your kitchen storage with a countertop hutch. Glass fronts make these the perfect place to put pretty dishes on display.

Open shelving feels as much at home in modern kitchens as it does in traditional ones. See how to make this simple, clean storage style work in your home.

Can’t decide between two different styles? Mix and match — two different cabinet styles can make an even bigger impact.

Hardware Styles

Of course, once you have your cabinets chosen, you have a whole other task ahead of you: choosing hardware. Even if you’ve got simple Shaker cabinets like these, your choice of drawer pulls and knobs makes a big difference in your finished look.
