Elements of Style
European-Style Kitchen cabinets are among the most sought-after cabinets in re-modelling projects today. Defined by their sleek, contemporary designs, the primary characteristics of European-style Kitchens are the use of clean, sleek lines and a minimal amount of cabinet detail. The frameless cabinetry construction method is used and regularly features a flat panel or “slab” style door and drawer front.
Cabinets will display simple, flat surfaces that are unadorned with little or no hardware and flush doors. They will rarely use ornamentation and moldings, wood carvings and raised panel doors. Smaller kitchens can be made to feel more spacious with less visual stimulation. Therefore, the flat surfaces of European cabinets help to make smaller kitchens appear roomier.
Finally, the defining element of the European kitchen is its efficient use of space. European kitchens tend to be highly functional. As you will see below, when designing your contemporary European-style Kitchen… it’s all in the details.
What inspires someone to decide to redesign his or her home with new cabinetry. For some it is a desire to reinvent a particular room. For some it is a longing to create a more valuable, more aesthetic feeling in their home that can be enjoyed by family, friends and neighbors.
For others, it is simply a need for better-built cabinets with more storage space and a more efficient layout.
