Craftsman style kitchens are always directly associated with stunning cabinetry. Classified under the traditional style, the craftsman kitchen cabinet style originated during the 19th century as a result of the popular Arts and Crafts Movement. (Take a look at our gallery of craftsman kitchen cabinets on this page). Craftsman style kitchen cabinets are known for their utilitarian nature. This type of kitchen cabinet style is geared towards functionality rather than ornamentation. It gives more emphasis on craftsmanship and puts premium on simplicity. Although utilitarian in nature, the craftsman style still became one of the most visually captivating and stand out design styles in history. It is the perfect marriage of form and function.
Cabinet doors are the components which you use to close and open the cabinets or storage systems, while the drawer fronts pertain to faces of the drawers. Just like the frame, these components are also made up of solid wood and must have a thickness of at least ¾ inches. Cabinet doors and drawer fronts are also made up of rails and stiles that have a thickness of ½ inches to 3 inches. These rails and stiles make up the cabinet door frame which holds the center panel in place. The cabinet door center panel material and design varies depending on the overall style of the cabinet.
Similar to contemporary kitchen cabinets, the modern style typically makes use of man made and synthetic materials like plastic, metal, glass and concrete or in some cases, mixed materials. Modern kitchen cabinets are also usually finished with laminates, wood veneers or frosted glass panels. Wood is also used in this style, but instead of using one type, modern kitchen cabinets style combines different finishes. Prominent horizontal graining patterns are also prevalent for this style. When it comes to color, natural wood and bold colors are part of the palette. Bold accents like deep reds, oranges, green and blue are also added to give a splash of color.
