Depending on what decor style suits you and your home, you can find a kitchen cabinet style that reflects your design interests and lets your personality shine through.

Most kitchen cabinets styles fall in the traditional or modern category, with many subcategories within these styles to choose from. Traditional cabinet styles can incorporate a variety of looks from cottage to country, old world to Shaker. Traditional cabinets tend to have decorative doors with raised or recessed paneling. They may also use special finishes or distressing techniques to bring about a more comfortable and inviting design aesthetic. Their color palette tends to be neutral or take advantage of historical colors that will provide a warm and cozy feel in your home.

Modern kitchen cabinet styles may incorporate contemporary materials such as European-style sheet-glass and lacquered wood. This style may also use bold pops of color in cabinetry to express a homeowner who isn't afraid to show his or her vibrant side.

There are also some kitchen cabinet styles in the design world that don't really fit into a traditional or modern category but rather express a unique design view. Some of these styles include vintage or retro kitchens, which provide a historical or nostalgic vibe to your home by using cabinets with decorative moldings and beadboard or bold colors to suggest the look of past decades.

Another unique kitchen cabinet style is seen in the log home look where rustic woods and natural colors are used to bring the outdoors into your home. Wood beams and exposed wood grain are key features in this unique kitchen style that isn't quite traditional but definitely does not fall into a modern kitchen category.

Finally, homeowners with global design goals may choose to feature a kitchen cabinet style seen in specific regions of the world. French country, Tuscan, Italian and Mexican cabinet styles are all unique to the regions they originated from and can be translated into a unique style in your home as well.
