Popular Cabinet Styles For Your Home

When designing your kitchen, one of the most important areas to focus on is your cabinetry. There are a wide variety of types and styles of cabinets, and deciding on the style to fit your décor and personal taste can go a long way to making your home timeless. Some of the most popular door styles currently include Shaker, Flat Panel, Bead Board, and Inset.


The Shaker style is the most common door style in today’s kitchens. Shaker style cabinets are made from four pieces and a single flat center panel. It gets the name from the distinctive Shaker style furniture, which uses simple clean lines and emphasizes utility. The rise in popularity has derived from simplicity and can work with all types of décor from contemporary to traditional. This is also a budget friendly option since it can work with a a variety of budgets, depending on the type of wood wanted.

Flat Panel

The Flat Panel door style is a nice simple design that works well with most decors. It doesn’t have any expensive details and works well for contemporary or modern interiors because of the hard lines and minimalist form. Because of the simple design, flat panel doors come in a variety of colors and sheens and can be budget friendly because it can come in decorative laminate or wood. The laminate tends to be a more budget-friendly option while still giving a simple clean look to your kitchen.

Bead Board

Bead board style cabinet doors can add some nice detail to your kitchen. It gives your kitchen a nice cottage style look by making the doors look like traditional bead board paneling. Before plaster, drywall and paint became common, a lot of homes were built using bead board paneling on the walls. This style has lost it’s popularity for walls but has been transformed for a nice detailed look for cabinet doors. One downfall to consider is that the cracks and crevasses can be difficult to clean.


Inset style cabinetry tends to be one of the most expensive options because of the elegance and detail that goes into crafting these doors. This style is designed where the cabinet doors and drawers sit precisely within the frame., which is where the style gets it’s name. Because traditional cabinets rest on the outside of the frame, the inset style needs to be constructed with extremely precise measurements so that it opens and closes properly, especially when the wood expands and contracts. The hinges on this style are typically exposed, and are something to account for in your total budget.

Whichever style you decide is right for your kitchen, keep in mind your existing décor as well as your potential future décor. Choosing the right style and look that you want can give you a kitchen that you will love for many years to come.
