Cabinets can sometimes be the most expensive element in your kitchen, so careful consideration is necessary before purchasing. Design, style, and color are brought into heavy discussion when choosing the right cabinets for your kitchen.

We will go through some very common, yet exquisite styles that you just might find interesting. Cabinet styles such as urban style, sleek transitional, and retro contemporary are just a few common and popular themes in the modern era as well as in the FM area.

The urban style infuses a traditional 1900’s look with a clean-lined modern style. Flat-front cabinets drive the contemporary scheme, while the oak construction and wood grain texture compliment the woodwork of the neighboring rooms. This look can also be mastered when dark-stained finishes as well as with stainless steel drawers to add the industrial feel.

The sleek transitional style gets the best of both the traditional and contemporary look. Typically, recessed panels inside flat-face frames showcase the two styles and their characteristics.
