Recessed panel kitchen cabinets are the opposite of raised panel kitchen cabinets. The primary difference between the two styles is the height of the center panel of the cabinet door face. The recessed panel kitchen cabinet style is characterized by a door design in which the flat center panel is recessed below the rest of the cabinet door and ornamented with a surrounding raised border, contour or profile. Shaker cabinet design can be classified under the recessed panel kitchen cabinet style and is considered as one of the most prominently used kitchen cabinet styles.
An inset kitchen cabinet style is characterized by a design in which the drawers and doors fully fit inside the cabinet face frame openings. Typically, most kitchen cabinet styles use the “overlay” construction in which the doors and the headers are slightly larger than the openings in the frame, thus they appear to be slightly raised. With such, the door and the headers also seem to be constructed in an overlapping manner.
These features (or lack of features, rather) draw attention to the crisp lines of the kitchen cabinets.These days you will find cabinets sold in every color. A two-tone paint job is very common, wood with a bolder color looking very different.
One major drawback of this type of kitchen cabinet finish is that it has the tendency to chip and wear over time. Acrylic – Acrylic finish is a type of non toxic finish that is mainly composed of acrylic acid. It gives kitchen cabinets a high gloss finish that is ultra smooth and has a sleek, mirror like appearance. Acrylic is available in a wide range of colors which can suit a variety of kitchen palettes. This type of finish is also known to last for years, without fading or discoloration.
