Choosing the Right Cabinets for Your Kitchen – The Kitchen Cabinet Buying Guide

The Right Kitchen Cabinets.


Choosing the right cabinets for your kitchen is an important decision and one to put some thought into. Your choice of kitchen cabinet generally determines the look and feel of your kitchen, so depending on what look you are going for, here is a guide on the different styles of cabinetry from which to choose.


The Shaker styled cabinet continues to be one of the most popular kitchen cabinet choices, with its simple and stylish design. The design consists of clean lines, a simple frame and inset panel, which lends itself well to any style home and interior. Whether contemporary or traditional, the shaker style can adapt to suit perfectly. With a simple base, you are able to design the rest of your kitchen freely. Keep it minimal or dress it up with colour stains, painted colour or interesting handles.


Handleless cabinets are exactly as the name suggests – handleless. This style lends itself perfectly to the contemporary and minimal home, with an uninterrupted, sleek design combined with a cleverly integrated opening function.  This design has a subtle groove built in at the top of the unit, allowing you to open easily with just a gentle pull.


Closely inspired by the classic shaker design, in-frame cabinets sit neatly flush within a sold frame, offering a modern element to a traditional style. The unique in-frame design is a combination of modern and classic, lending itself well to any style home.


Slab design refers to a solid, flat surface without any frame, detail or panel. The simplicity of this design acts perfectly as a blank canvas, allowing you to add your personal touch to the rest of the space. The style is so versatile, so it can be kept minimal and contemporary with a high gloss finish, or soften the clean lines with a warm, wood finish.
