Cabinet Style Guide

Your guide to kitchen cabinet styles

The design of a kitchen is complex. While there are many minor items in your kitchen to note, don’t ignore a sizeable portion of the space – your kitchen cabinets. When every kitchen company claims to be the best provider of handmade, bespoke kitchens, which do you choose, and which one is best for your budget? Before you make the important decision to install new cabinets, be certain that you’re mindful of the many types of cabinet styles and quality. Here, we tell you more about the styles and variations of each design.

TRADITIONALLY HUNG

In-Frame

All our doors are hung in-frame, meaning they are positioned inside a frame rather than on the outside, which can lead to sagging over time. This style imparts a distinctive and classic appearance to the kitchen. In-frame cabinets are renowned for their robustness and longevity, making them the preferred choice for those seeking a traditional and elegant kitchen design. They are often associated with high-quality craftsmanship and are our top choice for bespoke kitchen designs.

SIMPLE SQUARE EDGE

Shaker

Our Shaker kitchen cabinets refer to a traditional style of cabinet design characterised by its simplicity, clean lines, and functional design. Shaker cabinets have a five-piece door and drawer front with a recessed centre panel. The doors and drawers feature a flat, straightforward design with minimal ornamentation or decorative detailing. Shaker-style cabinets are renowned for their enduring appeal, blending seamlessly with various kitchen designs, from traditional to modern.

BEAD & THUMB MOULDING

Period English

Bringing together timeless design and the finest craftsmanship, the Period English collection is defined by a classic thumb mould around the panelled doors and drawer fronts and a bead running the length of the top and bottom edges of the top drawers. Traditional techniques like the mortise and tenon joint, solid steel butt hinges and dovetail drawers add strength to our handmade units and make them traditionally authentic.

FLAT FRONTED WITH HANDLES

Fusion Flat Fronted

Our flat-fronted Fusion range is a transitional style between our modern, slab-fronted kitchens and our traditional Shaker and Period English styles. By effortlessly blending the flat fronts with handles, our designs explore clean lines and bold blocks of colour whilst keeping the same, high quality of all our bespoke furniture.

SIMPLE & HANDLELESS

Modern Slab Front

Our flat-fronted (or slab-front) kitchen cabinets bring a modern touch to our collection. The handleless cabinets are finished in a low-sheen eggshell paint, which is available in over 300 colours. Our signature detailing is carefully crafted in natural oak and adds a touch of warmth and character to the cabinets.
