European Kitchen Cabinets

European kitchen cabinets are generally defined by a sleeker, more contemporary look than their American counterparts. One of the chief facets of European kitchen cabinet design is that they generally do not feature a frame, which is a trademark of American cabinets. This frameless design allows for a "seamless" look, which disguises the entire frame of the cabinet.

Another advantage of European kitchen cabinets is their overall ease of use. In contrast to American cabinet design, European cabinets do not feature rails or stiles, which can interfere with access to the interior.

If you're considering European kitchen cabinets, it's likely that your overall kitchen design is more contemporary or modern. In terms of materials and colors, this opens up a wide range of options, with a few popular choices standing out.

Laminate is frequently used for European kitchen cabinets. This lightweight material was once considered somewhat flimsy, but new manufacturing techniques have made it much stronger and more durable. It's available in a wide range of colors, including the bright, bold hues that can work well in modern kitchens.

In terms of hardware, most European kitchen cabinets feature fairly sleek, understated hardware, often in simple metal designs.
