If you have experience with a kitchen renovation, you will know the many decisions that have to be made.

Choosing a kitchen style, selecting tap ware and bench tops that compliment the style, there are endless choices.

One of the most important factors for achieving a kitchen is the selection of cabinet fronts / doors.

Cabinet door fronts - or cupboard door profiles - come in a variety of designs, textures and materials. There are a few styles you'll have seen everywhere but never really noticed, until now!

The interior style of your kitchen – whether it is modern, rustic or coastal - should always guide your choice of cabinets.

We have compiled a list of 5 cabinet styles which are popular in 2019 and will help you distinguish between them easily.

1. Shaker Cabinets

These cabinets are extremely popular and are characterised by their simplicity and elegance.

Fun fact – They’re named after a religious sect in the called the ‘Shakers’ who were renowned for their well-made, simple furniture in the 18th century.

If you’re looking for a Scandinavian or traditional kitchen design these cabinets should be your first choice.

Tip 1 – If you’re confused whether to get a contemporary or traditional or minimalist kitchen design? Shaker cabinets are the way to go!

2. Glass Cabinets

These types of cabinets are meant to be mixed and matched with solid door cabinets to give your kitchen a more practical look.

They are generally used as wall cabinets to showcase expensive and fancy glassware or range of cookbooks and rare china.

Tip 2 – Lighting is key with glass cabinets to illuminate and make the stored items stand out and add to the ambience of the kitchen.

3. Contemporary Cabinets

These cabinets are primarily characterised by sleek, flat surfaces and minimal ornamentation which means, yes, you can ditch the handles.

It helps give the kitchen space and the entire home a clean, non-fussy look.

Tip 3 – If you have a small kitchen, these cabinets can be used as a floor to ceiling option and can provide more space vertically, if there is a lack of horizontal space.

4. Open Shelving

This is not exactly a cabinet style, but it is an extremely popular concept which can be applied to your kitchen to improve storage and reduce clutter.

This concept of open shelving works best when paired with wall cabinets and require a certain level of tidiness and organisation skills to give the kitchen an aesthetic feel.

Tip 4 – Open shelving is a good idea right above the cooking area to store regularly used utensils and spices at arm’s reach.

5. Rustic Cabinets

Rustic cabinets exude a feeling of the country side and gives a good feeling of a laid back setup away from all the city-side commotion.

This style is characterised by large cabinets with warmer tone of colours.

These cabinets don’t have a glossy, sleek look and are given an old, rugged finish to give an authentic wooden feel.

Tip 5 – For hardware options, use wrought-iron or brass hardware to authenticate the look even more.
