Kitchens are an integral part of most homes, and your kitchen cabinets should reflect that. Whether you have a warm, cozy decor or a more modern, traditionalist approach, there are a variety of kitchen designs to fire up your imagination and fit into your home.
The main purpose for your cabinets is to store food, but they also serve as a focal point regarding the style of your kitchen.
If you’re looking to instal a new kitchen, there are many types of kitchen cabinets, all varying significantly in price. Prices will also differ depending on whether you choose custom-designed or semi-custom designed (flat pack).

You want your kitchen cabinets t0 tie into your entire houses decor in order to fit well. With that being said, it’s important any design you choose incorporates into the style of your countertops and floor.
There are a few main type of designs, including solid wood, European style cabinets, and veneered plywood and standard veneer. By far the most expensive of the kitchen cabinet designs are the solid wood cabinets. Whether you choose hickory, walnut or something else, expect to pay top dollar for these high quality cabinets.
European style cabinet designs are also expensive, but fit well with those who prefer a more modern style of design. These are a current, very popular choice with new homeowners.
Veneered designs are, typically, the more affordable option. Plywood and standard veneer cabinets can give you the look of solid wood, without the price of the real thing. So if you’re on a tight budget, these affordable cabinet materials may be the way to go.
You also want to consider colour. You could either incorporate colour into your cabinets, benchtop or the splash back, if you want to add a little character to your kitchen. All-white kitchens are, however, a popular choice at the moment and a great way to keep your kitchen looking more modern for longer. If you want to add some colour you could try decorating with plants, appliances or kitchen stools.
No matter which option you choose, you are sure to find a design to fit with your design scheme and within your budget. From ultra expensive models, to the look of wealth without the price tag, you can find any cabinet to suit your tastes.
