10 Examples of Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen10 Examples of Kitchen Cabinets

It's often said that small home improvement projects can make a huge difference. By opting for simple, yet visually interesting renovations, you'll revamp a room without having to deal with demolition, blueprint designs, and everything else that goes into a large-scale remodelling project.

When it comes to kitchen renovation, people tend to go all out because of the room's purpose and practicality. However, what many don't realize is that you can transform such a space with a few simple changes to the layout and the room's overall functionality by focusing on one element in particular, like cabinetry.

Hence the importance of educating yourself regarding the different types of kitchen cabinet doors, materials that could be beneficial, their practical positioning, and the different designs that will breathe new life into your kitchen.

Renovation Ideas: 10 Kitchen Cabinet Examples

1- Modern and metallic kitchen cabinets for a sophisticated sparkle

Metal is often associated with commercial kitchens like those in restaurants or hotels. However, by opting for brass or gold colour cabinets, you’ll add a little pop to your kitchen, which will reflect the natural and artificial light in the room.

2- An uncluttered Zen space with wooden cabinets

By opting for light, smooth wood cabinetry, your kitchen will not only appear larger with ample free space, but you'll create the perfect minimalist look that can easily be paired with different colours.

3- Multi-purpose cabinets paired with small kitchen appliances

If you have a small kitchen, then you know more than anyone that the more appliances there are, the more cluttered the space will look. This is why opting for multi-functional cabinets will help to keep the space organized and practical.

For example, if you thought having a dishwasher was out of the question, with this option, you can find its right fit while simultaneously concealing it. For a perfect minimalist design, look into handleless cabinets.

4- Showcase-type cabinets

If open storage or shelves aren't your cup of tea, but you're still hoping to show off your dishware, glass cabinet doors might be the perfect compromise. These are excellent for softening dark kitchens or showcasing your prettiest kitchenware.

5- Open-shelving cabinets

By mixing and combining different cabinetry styles, you can create an interesting effect that will add dimension to your kitchen. By opting for open and closed shelving units, you can play with the disposition of your kitchen appliances, which will serve as a backdrop.

6- Floating storage

Trendy with folks looking for a light and airy visual look, open shelving has been increasingly sought-after in recent years. You can trade in your age-old cabinets for shelves or floating cubes that will help you create this design. By pairing these shelves with pot hooks and knife magnets, you'll without a doubt add different interesting elements that will give your kitchen a unique touch.

7- Sliding cabinet doors

Practical, efficient, and versatile, there are various interesting takes on sliding cabinet doors that will perfectly complement your fast-paced lifestyle. You can either choose completely enclosed or semi-concealed shelving that allows the doors to slide on either side. This design is easily achievable for any budding DIYer.

This type of cabinetry is custom-made with untreated wood, tailored to your tastes and needs, and will accentuate any kitchen for those looking to design something rustic yet natural-looking.

8- Tailor-made cabinets

Ah, the infamous lazy Susan corner cabinet that makes it so you almost have to squeeze in to get by! Such cabinets are what most homeowners' nightmares are made of. Hence the many handy cabinet tips and designs specially designed to avoid this specific problem.

One of the designs that caught our attention is that of V-shaped drawers. Mirroring the shape of your counter, such drawers facilitate storage and offer a practical solution that adopts a one-of-a-kind shape.

9- A wall full of cabinets

Should you have an empty wall and are thinking about remodelling your kitchen, make use of that space by lining it, floor-to-ceiling, with cabinets. This gives way to a quirky and practical aesthetic. By focusing most of the shelving in one part of the room, you’ll free up the space above the counter where cabinets are normally found, leaving this area free for other kitchen countertop appliances.

10- Stacked cabinets

Should you have high ceilings or enough space, installing two rows of stacked cabinets will provide ample storage for avid culinary enthusiasts, in addition to creating a practical and unique kitchen design.
