Mixing and matching cabinet and wood styles can give an eclectic feel to your kitchen.

Choosing the Right Kitchen Cabinets for Every Style

What's your kitchen cabinet style? Well, that likely depends on your personal style and the look you're trying to go for in your kitchen. Keep in mind that while the cabinets will affect the style most, accessories like cabinet knobs, drawer pulls, and backsplashes can be the icing on the cake.

If you're interested in a classic look, you might choose the basic kitchen cabinets. The ridged style of these cabinets gives them that traditional feel. More classic finishes include light and dark wood or painted white cabinets.

On the other end of the spectrum, you could go with a modern style. Rather than ridges, these cabinets tend to have square geometric ridges. Modern finishes tend to be painted rather than wood and could be painted black, dark gray, or light gray. These options could also provide a more industrial feel depending on the hardware you choose.

An increasingly popular style is the rustic kitchen. Rustic kitchen cabinets tend to be off-white and have details such as additional ridges and a darker tint around those ridges. Again, you could add a stone backsplash, farmhouse sink, and dark metal hardware to enhance this look. For a slightly more country style, you could go with a lighter wood basic cabinet and gold hardware.

If you're picking out cabinets for a beach house or want a home that's far from the ocean to feel like a beach house, we recommend painted white cabinets. A squared ridge gives a cleaner look and more opportunity for you to complete the look with cabinet accessories and nautical decorations.

Or maybe you want to completely change it up and have a unique kitchen style like no other. One approach to this is to mix and match cabinets that you like together. For example, you might have medium-stained hardwood floors, a white island, and then espresso cabinets surrounding.
