Unique Kitchen Cabinet Styles

The best kitchen cabinets are ones with their own stories: inspiring, making us dream up a creative spaces for our homes. I’d like to show some really unique cabinets I’ve seen lately. You can read here about it.


‘Shabby chic’ is an up-and coming trend, DIY cabinets are for the creative ones (you can check them at this website). Shabby chic is a form of design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear (sometimes the older the better) or new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, minimalistic, and feminine feel is emphasized to differentiate it from regular vintage decor; hence the “chic” in the name.

Materials are as varied as you can imagine, from shipping crates to thrift-shop finds to old metal filing cabinets. Best of all, it’s dirt cheap!


Drawing on the bright colors and high-gloss of Italian contemporary style, this Kitchen Suite (by Lago) takes minimalism to a new level. Wall-mounted kitchen cabinets and additional structures maximize floor space and results in a slick, geometrical pattern reminiscent of pixelated video games. The concept is striking, yet new and practical.

Mid-Century Modern

The mid-century design theme is making a comeback. These are mid-century cabinets in an original southern Californian home. The homeowners refinished the cabinet doors in bright orange and green to make them even more attractive. They also sanded and stained the wood trim, then installed original mid-century light fixtures to complete the look.

Luxury Glass

This kitchen blows me away and probably you too. The Isola Linear (by Toyo) features cantilevered structures for a kitchen that seems to be stacked yet floating at the same time. Cabinets are finished with Venetian glass mosaics and five types of etchings. It can come with a complimentary chandelier and a standing mirror too. You can get redirected here to know more about the installations.

Concept & Futuristic


Okay, this is my favourite: these fascinating concept kitchens sometimes do away with cabinetry. Designed for homes of the future, these kitchens are compact, curved yet outstandingly efficient. Some even grow their own food. Probably the best example is the Futuristic Kitchen by Ora-Ito which went on tour across Europe in 2007, stopping in historical city centres to give passersby a glimpse at high-tech design.

21st-Century Rustic

Contemporary rustic offers the best of both worlds for those who cannot decide – or want to live countryside life in the city. The idea is simple: merge rustic furniture with the clean lines, sleek design and modern technology. This kitchen from Apartment Therapy does just that. Wooden beams from old-growth trees shelter a bright kitchen with contemporary-style cabinet design. A simple stool ties the whole look together.

Arts & Crafts

Besides shabby and rustic, Arts & Crafts kitchens are making a comeback too. Unlike the cookie-cutter cabinets in many homes, the Arts & Crafts style is famous for durability, rich details and a craftsmanship that has survived for centuries. This kitchen by Crown Point contrasts a pale blue kitchen island with fantastic artisan Wholesale cabinet and matching range hood.

Gothic kitchens are hard to get right. Delve too deeply, and you could end up with coffins for cabinets.  Keep it chic, on the other hand, and you’ll get arched glass-front cabinets like the ones above. The owners of this kitchen  hand-stained their cabinets before meticulously texturizing them with steel wool. They even installed dark wood trim around the microwave and refrigerator to keep everything antique-style. Now that’s dedication.
