Most Common Types of Kitchen Cabinets

Custom Kitchen Cabinets are a vital piece to any renovation as they greatly influence the final product. The style must suit the taste and lifestyle of the homeowner. Different styles and cabinet door designs allow for endless possibilities in terms of creativity, leaving your mind blown. 

With so many different types of cabinets on the market, it’s tough to decide which one is right for you. In this article, we’ll explore some of the most popular kitchen cabinet styles and what factors you should consider when making your selection.

  • Beaded Kitchen Cabinets: The beaded inset cabinetry is a type of cottage-style kitchen cabinet known as face-framed cabinets. They come with doors and drawer fronts that have been set into the frame, classic paneling, and a 1/4 inch bead modern design around each door and drawer opening. The design consists of a bead with rounded edges inside the wood. Beads can help to define the outline of your doors and drawers, either by being attached to the face frame or drilled out of it. This extra level of detail is one way to tell genuine personalized cabinetry apart from mass-produced cabinets. In addition, beads give beadboard cabinet fronts a unique look with their vertical grooves. Choosing beaded inset cabinet doors and drawers will create a unified appearance in your cabinetry.

  • Flat Panels Kitchen cabinets: A flat-panel door style is simply a cabinet door without any additional embellishments, and is sometimes called a ‘slab’ door. Most kitchen cabinets use dimensional designs instead – meaning that the frame and center panel create raised faces rather than a flat surface. Dimensional designs give cabinets more of a traditional look. However, both styles – flat panel doors as well as modern appearance kitchens – are excellent choices for a contemporary aesthetic. 
  • Base Kitchen Cabinets: Base cabinets are kitchen cabinet types designed for countertops, sink arrangements, and cooktops. These base cabinets are installed on the floor to provide storage and define the kitchen’s floor plan. They are regarded as permanent fixtures as they are attached to the wall. Usually, base cabinets have exposed legs, or the legs are covered with long strips of wood known as toe kicks.
  • Wall Kitchen Cabinets: Wall cabinets, unlike base cabinets, are constructed to stay above counter space. Though they vary in style as much as the kitchens they’re incorporated into do, wall cabinets typically complement base cabinets to achieve a coordinated look. Even though both types of kitchen cabinetry are similarly constructed, the most distinguished difference is that wall cabinets never have drawers.
  • Corner Kitchen Cabinets: Corner cabinets are, as the name suggests, mostly cut off from counter space. To make use of all available kitchen space, these customized cabinets are designed specifically for corner placement and often have non-standard configurations so that everything is still within reach. The most common design places the base cabinet in the corner but can also include upper cabinets. Not only does this layout style aim to optimize interior space, but it also creates a more aesthetically pleasing exterior.
