How to Find Your Modern Kitchen Cabinet Style

Cabinets are the backbone of the kitchen.

Configured cabinetry makes the most use of your kitchen’s size, but custom ones emphasize your personal style. Today, most savvy homeowners want to choose kitchen cabinets that will do both. Get started with these three simple points to help figure out how to choose kitchen cabinets to best fit your needs!

Considerations for Choosing Kitchen Cabinet Styles

  • Tall vs. Short Upper Cabinet Height – More and more modern kitchen cabinet styles we install lately extend to the ceiling, making use of high-up space for storing infrequently used, but all-important, appliances, serving ware, or antiques. Having tall upper cabinets is a great way to maximize storage in a kitchen with small square footage!
  • Stained vs. Painted Cabinet Colors – When it comes to modern kitchen cabinet colors and pairing them with your countertops, it’s all about creating balance. If your countertop is patterned, our cabinet experts recommend a light-colored painted cabinet. On the other hand, you could take advantage of a wood stain cabinet if your countertops are more of a solid color.
  • Drawers vs. Cabinets – Practically speaking, will your kitchen items store better in a cabinet or a drawer? While drawers are great for organizing, cabinets are great for storage! Despite cabinet’s popularity in the past, we’re seeing more modern kitchen designs beautifully incorporate both drawers and cabinets.

Because computer screens can inaccurately represent colors, stains, and styles, we strongly suggest you visit our showroom in New Holland, PA before committing to your new cabinetry. Schedule your appointment today!
