Determine Your Kitchen Style
Kitchen cabinet design ideas can seem almost countless, but kitchen cabinet styles generally fall into a few main categories, one of which is sure to suit your design tastes. You should have no trouble settling on the style that's right for your home by browsing design ideas and helpful kitchen cabinet pictures.
A few main factors will likely help guide your kitchen cabinet design choices. The first is whether or not you wish to reflect the overall design of your home in the kitchen design. Most kitchens do follow the overall style of the house, but it's not rare to find a kitchen that owns its style, which reflects a design departure in whole or in part. Once you've decided the solution,it's time to think about the scope of your kitchen cabinet project.
When it comes to your kitchen cabinet design,there may be a long way to go from the space you have to work with and overall budget to the final product. Large, open areas tend to tolerate elegant, sweeping and traditional designs better, while small spaces are often better suited for the clean, compact lines of modern design.
That means there are "transitional" styles that can work for any size space.For example, Shaker-style cabinetry can be made to feel modern, traditional or neutral simply by choosing cabinet hardware and paint that reflect one of those styles. Accents like backsplashes and furniture—chairs, stools or tables—can either complement or contrast with cabinetry to create an impressive design combination.
