Coeval and charismatic, these 10 kitchen cabinet designs spiff up your scullery like no other.

They say cooking is a way to one’s heart so you’d best be making that stuff simpler with adept storages. Look around a kitchen space. Storage cabinets make up most of your prep space and can truly make or break your kitchen’s interior design. With the knack for visual esthetic comes the need for flawless kitchen cabinets. Since fixating on a single design and texture can be quite an irksome process considering the number of kitchen cabinet design options available today, we’re here to grease the wheels for you with a handpicked top 10.

Steal The Show With Steel Kitchen Cabinets

Did you know that stainless steel cabinetry for kitchens originally gained popularity because of how affordable and convenient they were to maintain? To think that these glistening beauties were something people would only ‘make do’ with. See how far they’ve come today. Metal finishes for your cabinets are modern kitchen favourites now because of how sleek and stylish they make your kitchen interior design to be. Modern interior designs (more often than not) don’t agree with vivid colours and what better way to ditch a bright-coloured palette with glossy silver kitchen cabinets that are simple yet make a sophisticated bold statement at the same time? 

Easy to care for and super budget-friendly – you can have these shiny surfaces spray painted if you’d like to. But the whole single-toned rustic vibe is something you’re not easily going to want to give up.

Glow Out In Style With Glossy Kitchen Cabinet Designs

Don’t quite know how to add that extra oomph in your kitchen interiors without actually moving things around much? Gloss-up! A single coat of glossy is sure to make your kitchen cabinetry pop and steal the show entirely. Moreover, a glossy surface bounces light back into the room, making it look spacious – just like a kitchen should feel. And if you’re feeling particularly glamorous, our suggestion would be to go with deep dramatic colours in glossy finishes like a cherry/wine red or a deep royal blue. This could take grandeur in modular kitchen designs to a whole other level!

The (Pastel) Pink Panther For A Soothing Aura

For simple and elegant kitchen design, you can always choose to spruce up with neutral shades that are soothing to the eye. Milder shades of brown, pink and green appear light and fresh and add a lot of character to your kitchen cabinet designs when compared to other neutrals. The only thing that’s missing now is a couple of plants to bring out the earthiness of pastel shades and you’re good to go!

Metallic Kitchen Cabinets That Truly Mesmerise

There’s something about modern metallic interiors that instantly introduces a wave of sophistication and style to your kitchen without having to put in much effort in doing so. If making a statement with your kitchen cabinets is what you’re aiming for, don’t think twice before incorporating metallic gold gushes in between stylish stainless-steel cabinets to dress-up this otherwise mundane room.

Be Innovative With Mixed Materials

Too confused with too much to choose from? Stir things up a little by pairing textures or materials to make the most of your kitchen space. Blush-toned backsplashes call for a rather nature-inspired look with warm wooden hues and rustic brick fittings. Even otherwise, there’s a lot you can experiment with when it comes to spicing up with textures. Stainless steel works stunningly well with white wooden cabinets and gives your kitchen a very chic and contemporary vibe. A textured play doesn’t even necessarily have to involve a combination of two or more different materials, to be honest. Take the example of wood. There are a million ways you can up your kitchen cabinet game using different textures of wood to give an effervescent elegance.

Free The Floor With Kitchen Wall Cabinets

Wall ceilings are underrated storage saviours. If a lack of floor space is impeding free movement in and out of your kitchen, always consider wall cabinets to redd up (and rev up) the room.
