Simplifying Kitchen Cabinetry Styles

The biggest statement in a kitchen is the cabinets. When often remodeling the cabinets are the first things to be revitalized. They are the concrete declaration of any design style that you choose, but they come in a wide range of options and prices. To make your remodel glide smoother here is a basic rundown of kitchen cabinetry styles.

Cabinet Doors

Inset cabinet doors are very common in houses built in the early 1900s. The face of an inset cabinet door or drawer is in the same plane as the leading edge of the cabinet box. Also, the inset reduces space inside the cabinet, which means smaller drawers. When it comes to the price they tend to be more expensive than other options.

Partial overlay cabinet doors are a modern upgrade from the inset, they offer a partial overlay on the doors and drawers, since they are mounted on the face of the box. This construction allows the ability to install more functional hardware, though the face frame still reduces the amount of accessible space inside the cabinet.

Full overlay or euro-style cabinet doors are the most modern version of cabinets. The door or the drawer face completely overlays the box. The cabinet shows no visible frame face when the doors are closed. This means that the doors open without hitting adjacent doors or drawers. These cabinets offer a consistent and continuous appearance and allow bigger drawers, smaller drawer guides, and more space for storage.

Each of these cabinets comes in a variety of woods and finishes to better accent your home and bring it to life. The type of cabinet boxes should be chiefly driven by design style.
