The kitchen is the heart of the home. This place is one of the most favorite places of moms, and for them, it is important to maximize the kitchen space so as to represent their personality and to serve their culinary needs efficiently. 

Whether the space is big or small, there are definitely plenty of ways to spice up the kitchen and do all their duties without the hassle! With that, it is important to select a suitable type of furniture for your kitchen. 

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the list of cabinets recommended for the various types of kitchen:

  1. Shaker 

Shaker cabinets are recommended for kitchens that are square and quite smaller in size. It is known for its simplicity with its basic hardware and recessed panel doors positioned like a frame. The material for most shaker cabinets are made from hardwood and are painted with a distressed finish for a traditional vintage look. 

  1. Inset 

Inset cabinets are composed of an inset-style door that is within a frame. It is one of the most expensive kitchen cabinet designs as these are measured thoroughly to ensure that the door is accurately placed in the frame. Moreover, these last for years due to its construction. They look very classic and can be best used for kitchens with wide spaces.

  1. Flat-panel

Flat-panel cabinets are best for people who prefer a minimalist kitchen design. These cabinets make use of hard lines and are frameless in structure. This type of design fits most modern kitchens, especially white ones. This is also preferable for kitchens with smaller spaces as they are built in a simple but stylish way.


  1. Louvered

Louvered kitchen cabinets are usually made up of wooden horizontal slats. This is commonly used for windows and laundry areas but is now being adapted into kitchen cabinet designs as it offers enough ventilation for utensils and items being stored in a cabinet. This type of design is most suitable for kitchens with large spaces for a more stylish look. 


  1. Custom

For home-owners that are unsure of what type of cabinets suit their kitchen, there is always an option to have them customized. You may contact local interior designers or a  craftsperson to help you ideate and implement the design suitable for your taste, kitchen space, budget, and overall home design. 

Choosing a type of cabinet for your kitchen is highly dependent on the size of your kitchen, home design, and your spending budget. Other factors to consider would be the durability and material of your cabinets. 

While it may seem to be a less priority, taking time to think about your kitchen cabinet designs will surely help you spare a dime and allow you to find comfort while preparing delectable goodies for your family.
