CHOOSE YOUR CABINET STYLE

Trim or kitchen styles are predominantly discussed as areas of architectural influence. For instance, a “French Country” style kitchen is built using ornate, carved mouldings and natural wood tones while a “Contemporary” style is constructed with uninterrupted smooth surfaces and minimal decoration.

Door styles refer to the construction of the cabinet doors. These styles indicate overlays, inlays, shapes and cabinet coverage. Your choice of door style will often be influenced by the style of trim you select. For this reason, we recommend that you identify a trim style before you select the door style.

Affordable Kitchens and Baths offers cabinets in a wide range of trim and door styles for you to choose from. If you would like to discuss your cabinet options, please feel free to come in to our showroom today for a free consultation with one of our experienced designers.

CABINET STYLES

TRADITIONAL
Traditional design often uses a soft, neutral color palate. More traditional styles will often feature square raised-panel doors, large, stacked crown moulding, cherry wood, and warm, neutral finishes.

CONTEMPORARY
A contemporary space is streamlined with minimal excess. Contemporary designs often include melamine slab doors with high gloss finishes, clean lines, hidden hardware, and a sleek, uncluttered look.

MODERN
Often confused with contemporary design by definition, the “modern” style refers to a specific design movement that arose in the mid-20th century. Think “Mid-Century Modern” or Mad Men. Modern cabinetry features simple slab doors with wood veneers, creative hardware and glossy metals juxtaposed with wood for an organic contrast.

COUNTRY
Country style cabinetry features arched panel doors and woods that have a strong grain, such as oak or hickory.

ECLECTIC
Eclectic spaces artfully blend a variety of styles to create unexpected combinations and juxtapositions. Eclectic cabinetry will utilize multiple finishes in the same space, such as a combination of wood and painted cabinets. A variety of door styles and wood species could be utilized when trying to achieve an eclectic look.

VINTAGE
A popular theme in design, vintage inspired cabinetry can be achieved with inset doors, white paint, open shelving and glass door fronts to achieve a furniture look.

RUSTIC
Rustic style cabinetry can be achieved with knotty alder or rustic birch in any door style. The finish will be heavily weathered win any finish, paint or wood of your choosing.

CABINET CONSTRUCTION

Cabinet doors come in many styles and constructions. Below are some of the more common terms used by kitchen and bath designers to describe a door’s construction:

 

 

STANDARD OVERLAY
Standard overlay doors reveal up to 1ó” of the cabinet face behind them.

FRAMELESS
Frameless or full-access doors cover the entire cabinet face, and open flush with other doors, to create a contemporary look that maximizes open storage space.

INSET
Inset doors lay within the cabinet frame, creating a thinner profile door appearance.

MODIFIED OVERLAY
A modified overlay door features a full overlay width with a standard overlay height to allow for crown molding and trim.

FULL OVERLAY
Full overlay doors reveal at most 1/4” of cabinet face for a cleaner, more finished look.

DOOR STYLES

The style of your door can determine and/or compliment your overall style. Below are some of the more common terms used by kitchen and bath designers to describe a door’s style:

 

 

FLAT PANEL
Flat panel doors are constructed of multiple pieces, layered to create a recessed center panel.

RAISED PANEL
Raised panel doors are constructed of multiple pieces, layered to create a raised center panel.

SLAB
A slab door is constructed of a single piece of slab or wood.

GLASS INLAY
Glass inlay doors are constructed of a wood frame with glass inserts.
