Wood is more expensive than any of the composite cabinet materials available, and solid wood doors and drawer fronts are typical in high-quality cabinets. Examples of the more luxurious woods used in quality cabinets are cherry, mahogany, chestnut and cypress. These woods are durable, naturally beautiful, less common and therefore significantly more expensive to use. When considering the quality of your kitchen cabinets, the insides matter as well. The boxes of cabinets themselves are often made of particleboard or even medium-density fiberboard (MDF). These compressed-wood options are often used by cabinet builders to reduce the cost of the project. In high-end cabinetry, you might find solid-wood cabinet frames as well as doors; however this drives up the cost of your cabinets significantly. Regardless of the material used, the insides of high-quality cabinets should be smooth, not rough to the touch, with shelves at least three-quarters of an inch thick. Dovetail construction is recommended over glued joints to provide cabinets that hold up to heavy use. This mortise-and-tenon or dovetail joinery is seen in the highest-quality cabinets and will definitely drive up the cost of your remodeling project.

But for families who want to have some fun with their kitchen decor, decorative painting is the way to go. These can be in an array of distinct art styles, with the common theme threaded throughout. This way modern, classical and even DIY styles can be featured on one wall, combining to create a diverse and interesting design.

Then infuse color and pattern through window treatments, a room-anchoring rug, or upholstery in a built-in banquette. Both basics work to soften the kitchen and are a reflection of your personal design style, be it casual or formal, classic or modern. During the decorating process, remember to look up and assess your lighting situation. Although recessed and under-cabinet lights leave the smallest footprint in a small kitchen, a pair of pendant lamps above the center island or a trendy drum shade above the built-in breakfast nook will give the kitchen a finished look.

If cooks can easily access all of these kitchen features, cooking will be much more efficient and enjoyable. Galley kitchens generally achieve this design by placing two components of the triangle on one wall of the kitchen, and the third component on the opposite wall.

A convenient way to think of kitchen design style is to start by dividing the many styles available into two main categories: traditional or modern/contemporary. Each of these categories contains many subcategories and offshoots, but by first identifying which of the two appeals most to your personal style, you‘ll go a long way towards narrowing the list of styles you‘ll have to choose from.
