You can also read on to learn about some of the main options to help you narrow down your choices.

Consider a modern and minimal style

If you’re a fan of more modern looks, then you’ll want your style to following a minimalist style. For example, you may choose a frameless cabinet that has a full overlay door. Consider options that are less rather than more ornate. Another example is a slab type door with an unusual veneer or laminate. Depending on the colors you’re planning to decorate in, you may choose to have a door painted a solid color or you may choose a door made from a wood type with a grain or pattern you like.

You’ll want countertops that are subtle and that have clean edges. This helps them better blend in with the simple lines you’ll have your cabinets. We recommend choosing stainless steel appliances with your minimal style as well.

Take a look at keeping it traditional

On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you tend to prefer traditional styles then you’ll want to bring that into your kitchen design as well. With this option, you may want framed cabinets that have inset doors. You may choose from darker woods, like walnut, cherry, oak, or mahogany. Any of these will add nice warm tones to your kitchen to give you the classis feel.

A traditional kitchen would also have extra attention paid to the details. For example, you may want unique moldings, orange door styles, or traditional hardware. As to the counters, you’ll want something classic such as granite, wood, marble, or an engineered stone.

If you want the best of both worlds choose transitional

If you’re having trouble deciding if you’d prefer traditional or modern, then it may be that you simply fall in the middle of these options. The good news is that it can be quite beautiful to combine modern and traditional styles. If you do take this route, make sure that you have a clear theme before you get started. You should know exactly which elements you like from a modern perspective and what you like about traditional design.
