Kitchen CabinetsOverall, some of the most significant home design styles are as follows:

Here in Michigan, traditional and transitional styles have been popular lately, but there’s high demand for kitchen design work in each of these major styles.

Kitchen cabinet door designs often fall into one of several main categories:

Flat Panel Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Just like you’d expect from what the name suggests, flat panel cabinets incorporate a flat panel into the center area of the cabinet door. This style of cabinetry is appealing to homeowners for its simplicity. If you want your cabinets to be appealing, yet not the first design element that people notice in your kitchen, then flat panel cabinets might be the style you’re looking for.

This simple design feature is surprisingly effective in a variety of different kitchen environments.

If you’re upgrading your cabinetry in a modern style kitchen, you might want to consider installing flat panel cabinet doors, along with matching flat panel drawer fronts. Flat panel cabinets offer a clean, minimalist look that coordinates well with the modernist aesthetic.

Flat panel cabinet doors are versatile. They can also work well in contemporary, transitional or traditional kitchen designs.

Raised Panel Cabinetry

If you’re remodeling a classic or traditional kitchen, raised panel cabinetry give you the look and style you want to consider. This type of cabinetry also works well with some regional kitchen styles, such as Americana style or French country style.

Slab Doors

If you prefer a modern or contemporary look in your kitchen, plain slab cabinet doors might appeal to you.

Mullion Doors

A mullion is a type of door that incorporates both glass and other materials in a pattern that’s decorative as well as functional. For example, you might have a mullion configuration that includes a grid of glass windowpane style elements, divided by aluminum strips.
