A Quick Guide to Types of Kitchen Cabinetry

Grey kitchen cabinets

Have you taken on a kitchen remodeling project this summer? Or perhaps you’re working on designing a new kitchen altogether? Everything should either complement or beautifully contrast with each other and the rest of the design elements of your house.

Consider kitchen cabinetry as one of the important design elements of a kitchen. Instead of treating it as an after-thought, get a clear picture of different types of cabinetry. There’s more to kitchen cabinets than the basic ones.

This guide will help you decide.

1. Base Kitchen Cabinetry

These are the basic cabinets installed on the floor. The purpose of these cabinets is to support the kitchen countertop. You can place the sink within these cabinets for a neat look. Base cabinets are versatile because you can put in pull-outs, drawers, shelf space, and more.

Often, base cabinets define and shape the floor layout. Since they’re multipurpose, they’re also costly. The storage is enough to keep crockery, utensils, cutlery, and other daily items in the base.

Quick Tip: Don’t spend a fortune designing parts of cabinets that don’t come in a direct view line. Invest in improving the utility space of base cabinets.

2. Wall Cabinetry

As the name suggests, these cabinets are installed on the wall using screws and sturdy brackets. Put more thought into the design element of these cabinets because they’re in the direct line of view and serve as a decorative part of the kitchen.

The common practice is to extend wall cabinets to the ceiling or mount additional cabinets of the same finish. The purpose of these cabinets is to store less frequently used products and items. You can improve the design aesthetics of wall cabinets with glass. Our custom cabinet glass can perfectly blend in with your kitchen cabinets. Lighting fixtures can further enhance the overall look of your kitchen without spending a fortune.

3. Tall Cabinetry

Tall cabinets aren’t a novel concept, but they’re making a comeback into modern kitchen design. These pantry cabinets are flexible in terms of size. The high utility value of tall cabinets is another reason for their growing popularity.

You can put away everything in them. Whether you have tough-to-manage or bulky items, you can tow them away in your pantry cabinets. You’ll never face storage issues with these cabinets.

4. Shaker Cabinetry

Shaker cabinets are seen in modern kitchens these days. Five flat panels are used to make shaker cabinets, of which four panels are used in creating a frame. The flat panel is the fifth piece. These are classy and minimal. They can slip into any traditional or contemporary design. Shaker cabinets are made from top-quality wood, which gives them a sturdy look.

5. Slab Cabinetry

Flat-panel or slab cabinets are for people looking for an extra style element to their remodeling project. These designs are simple but elegant and can be customized to create subtle curves or sharp edges. The lack of frame and solid slabs make them the top choice of homeowners.
