Balancing style and function can mean the difference between a space that’s nice but rarely used and a room where years of memories are made. An efficient layout will make your new kitchen convenient to use, but an inviting color scheme and a few comfortable seats will encourage guests to linger long after the meal is done.

FULL OVERLAY: If you want a similar look to inset doors without the high price tag, full overlay is a great alternative. Doors and drawers completely cover the cabinet face, creating a seamless look.

“IF YOU HAVE THE MEANS TO DO IT, SPLURGE ON CABINETS. YOU MAY SPEND MORE IN THE BEGINNING, BUT GOOD-QUALITY CABINETS WILL ALWAYS BE CHEAPER IN THE LONG RUN.” Fabrice Garson, Bilotta Kitchens designer FRAMED » Framed cabinets have face frames that cover the front of the cabinet box, concealing the joinery and giving the cabinet strength and stability.

wood types

CHERRY Cherry is recognized by its red tones, which deepen over time with sun exposure. This is a popular choice for cabinetry due to its ability to hold up in humid climates.

WALNUT This wood type is identified by the distinct contrast of color in the wood’s rings. Want more drama? Apply a stain to change the cabinet’s color while retaining the grain pattern. RED OAK Hard, heavy, and strong, red oak can withstand even the most chaotic kitchens. Light brown with a hint of red, this wood type has visible growth rings and prominent straight grains. ALDER Alder’s soft grain and subtle color mellow over time with light exposure. An even…
