Popular kitchen cabinet designs include Shaker-style cabinets and furniture-style cabinets. Shaker-style cabinets are classic square-paneled doors with a simple look. Furniture-style cabinets are designed as an extension of other rooms. The cabinets resemble the furniture around the rest of the house and often have glass doors and an elegant design.
The most popular wood for kitchen cabinets are cherry and maple. Cherry cabinets give a traditional look to kitchens and are usually paired with granite cabinet tops. Contemporary designs are also popular and often employ high-gloss cabinets with stainless steel handles. Country or cottage kitchens either have pine cabinetry or a blond wood finish.
