This is a continuation of the last post. Here are a collection of five contemporary kitchens, all with a recessed panel door style. Sometimes this is called a "shaker style". But when I refer to a shaker cabinet, to me it also implies a more traditional feel and a very different overall look. Like the last post, I wanted to point out the other differences and options available after selecting the door style.
- I like the style above. Notice how much more wide the edge is than the kitchen below. Also notice the different stain, species, and hardware make a totally different feel.
- A natural finish and abundant use of stainless steel give this kitchen its flair.
- This kitchen has some glass, like the kitchen above, but notice how the upper glass is not a separate door, but rather a split door- with a wood panel on the bottom and glass on the top. You might not always want a separate door, for a variety of reasons, but this split style can give you the look.
- This kitchen has not only an interesting glass selection, but also a design created by changing the stain on the center drawer. Also notice the different hardware than we have seen previously.
- This bathroom is very similar to the kitchen at the top of the post. Even a few subtle changes like wood species and hardware style can give a unique look all its own.
