Finding the Best Kitchen Cabinet Style for Your Kitchen

Buying kitchen cabinets online with Vevano is as simple as selecting your color, style, and budget. With many different cabinet styles and colors, Vevano carries classic, farmhouse, and modern kitchen cabinets. We have the cabinets for your dream kitchen.

Whether you’re looking for inspiration or ready to start remodeling your home, we have a variety of styles and inspiration guides to help you find cabinets to fit your personal aesthetic. Some of the best styles and colors to get started with are:

Kitchen Cabinet Styles

  • Modern
  • Transitional
  • Farmhouse
  • Classic
  • Industrial
  • Cottage
  • White/Antique White
  • Grey
  • Wood
  • Dark


Updating your kitchen cabinets makes a huge difference in the quality of your home. Mix colors and styles to create a comfortable kitchen your family and friends love.

Modern Kitchen Cabinets

Modern kitchen cabinet doors are unembellished with sharp, straight lines. Instead of decorative details, modern cabinets generally have slab style drawers and doors without recessed or raised panels. Many of the cabinets from our Wilora Paloma frameless collections work well in modern kitchens, especially the Monte Carlo Gloss White and Marquis Dark Wood.

Look for cabinets in neutral colors such as white, grey, or dark wood. For Mid-Century modern cabinets, you want to imbue warmth and simplicity, so a natural medium-toned wood is ideal. Waterfall countertops or stainless-steel appliances complement modern cabinets well.

  • Colors: Neutrals
  • Door Frames: Slab style
  • Hardware: Handles in dark metals


Transitional Kitchen Cabinets

Transitional kitchen cabinets blend classic and modern styles into one cohesive design, but there are multiple ways to achieve this look. Combine a modern slab door with classic metal hardware. Go with a Shaker style door and modern pull hardware. Pair traditional cabinets with modern sinks and contemporary faucets. If you’re mixing elements of different styles together, you’re achieving a transitional style.

The Wilora Hawthorne Eastland cabinet collection is an excellent choice for a transitional kitchen. Its raised panel, beveled door has a classic style that combines perfectly with either curved or straight modern hardware.

Color is not associated with a transitional kitchen, so you can play with white, grey, or wood cabinets. Transitional white kitchens are bright and airy, whereas dark transitional cabinets are richly textured and dynamic.

Transitional cabinet styles are clean, uncluttered, and purposeful. While transitional is a harder kitchen design to master, the chance to create a unique style adds excitement and interest to your home.

  • Colors: Any traditional or neutral colors in white, grey, or dark tones
  • Door Frames: Modern or classic door frames, often with raised panels
  • Hardware: Curved or straight edge pulls and knobs
  • Molding and Panels: Match cabinetry in style


Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinets

Farmhouse style is all about functional comfort, spacious sinks, light colors, and functional use of space. Decorative details, such as beadboard panels and natural wood, on the island lend a Farmhouse vibe. Farmhouse blends vintage details with modern details for a clean, fresh look.

Shaker style works well for farmhouse kitchen cabinets, as they’re practical. The Shaker style features a plain, rectangular frame without beveled edges, and a recessed center panel. The Wilora Hawthorne Cobbleridge White, Shaker White, or the Shaker Dove cabinet collections are ideal for adding Farmhouse flair to your new kitchen.

  • Colors: White, light or creamy neutrals
  • Door Frames: Shaker or recessed
  • Hardware: Dark metals such as black, brushed nickel, or oil rubbed bronze
  • Molding and Panels: Plain paneling on cabinets, decorative on islands


Classic Kitchen Cabinets

The classic style focuses on traditionally timeless cabinets, décor, and colors. Natural wood tones complemented by clean neutral colors are common with the classic style. Classic kitchen cabinets generally have raised panel drawers and doors with decorative beveling. Add hardware finishes like brass, polished nickel, or oil-rubbed bronze for a comfortable, antique aesthetic.

Design elements are symmetrical, without the sharp contrasts of modern styles. To do this, keep the color palette consistent. Rather than the stark contrast of black and white, opt for white and cream or grey and off-white for counters and cabinets.

  • Colors: Creams, off whites, white, and traditional wood tones
  • Door Frames: Decorative, raised panels
  • Hardware: Pulls and knobs in antique finishes
  • Molding and Panels: Decorative end panels, decorative crown molding


Industrial Kitchen Cabinets

When old warehouses were repurposed for housing and offices, the industrial style craze was born. By keeping old, raw materials, like exposed brick, pipes, and ducts, the style has a unique appeal. You can create an industrial style kitchen even if you don’t live in a loft space with brick walls and cast-iron pipes. Go for slab style door frames, large islands, and open wall shelves. A surefire option is to keep your industrial kitchen cabinet color palette monochrome, with light or medium wood, or grey tones. Our Wilora Hawthorne Shaker cabinet collection in Grey, is a good fit for industrial kitchen spaces.

Hardware is key in an industrial style kitchen. Wrought iron, steel, or other raw, dark metals fit the style well. Lighting is another way to play up the industrial style, select fixtures with glass or iron features and exposed bulbs.

  • Colors: Grey, wood, or monochromatic color schemes
  • Door Frames: Modern, slab, or Shaker style
  • Hardware: Iron, steel, and knobs or pulls with black finishes
  • Molding and Panels: Very little molding or decoration, keep panels plain and simple


Cottage Kitchen Cabinets

The cottage style is like farmhouse but leans more towards rustic and eclectic elements. Lived-in comfort is a key, so choose inviting colors in white or off-white to give your kitchen a cheerful and open look. For flooring and backsplash, stone tiles match the cottage style while keeping the color palette fresh and natural.

Cottage kitchen cabinets are delicate in style, with ornate elements and intricate details, allowing you to be creative with hardware. Select unique designs in antique finishes or polished metal. Our Wilora Hawthrone Cobbleridge Dove cabinet collection fits well with a cottage style kitchen. The decorative beveling on the door and drawer front panels carries a hint of elegance without ostentation.

  • Colors: Light colors, whites, creams, or off-whites
  • Door Frames: Beveled frames with raised panels
  • Hardware: Antique finishes in charming shapes
  • Molding and Panels: Decorative and ornate


White and Antique White Kitchen Cabinets

White kitchen cabinets are among the most popular colors we carry because it’s so versatile. White goes with almost every color palette or style, offering a fresh, inviting look to your kitchen. White makes small kitchens look bigger and makes the most of the light you have. Since white is a clean color, it helps your kitchen feel sparkling and orderly, even when it isn’t. But this cleanliness does come at a price, as it requires more upkeep than dark cabinets because dirt and grime is more visible.

We offer a variety of shades and finishes for white cabinets – glossy white, bright white, or creamy antique white. Vevano carries many white collections in different door styles, such as the classic Wilora Hawthrone Shaker White, the Wilora Paloma Monte Carlo Gloss White for modern kitchens, or the Wilora Hawthorne Cobbleridge White for farmhouse kitchens. Antique white works well in cottage style kitchens as it feels vintage, but adds warmth to the bright, clean aesthetic that white is known for.

Use hardware to play up different aesthetic appeals, such as straight plain pulls for contemporary designs or playful antique knobs for cottage kitchens.

  • Colors: White, Gloss White, Antique White, Oyster Shell
  • Door Panels: Raised or recessed frames, or frameless slab-style
  • Hardware: Contrasting finishes such as nickel, black, or brass
  • Molding and Panels: Any


Grey Kitchen Cabinets

Grey kitchen cabinets range from dark cinder to light dove. The tone of grey influences how your new kitchen looks and feels. For a cool-toned kitchen, opt for a grey-blue. For a warmer feel, go with a grey red tone.

  • Much like white, grey is versatile, pairing well with other colors, from the pretty contrast of white to the cool complement of navy blue. Grey cabinets are excellent in kitchens with bold colors for flooring, countertops, appliances, and décor. Colors: Grey, Cinder, Dove
  • Door Frames: Raised or recessed frames, or frameless slab-style
  • Hardware: Contrasting metals such as polished nickel, chrome, or black
  • Molding and Panels: Any


Wood Kitchen Cabinets

Wood has long been the premium material for kitchen cabinets, and it’s easy to see why – the wood grain adds a natural and unique element to your kitchen. No two pieces of wood are the same. From muted tones to vivid multi-colored woodgrains, the comfortable texture of natural wood works well with any style kitchen, from modern to classic to farmhouse. Vevano carries primarily engineered wood, which is less expensive than real hardwood, with many of the same benefits.

Most wood cabinets are stained to highlight the unique contours of wood grain. A light stain provides a striking contrast with other elements in your kitchen while a darker stain brings out the contrast of the wood grain, providing dimension.

You can paint a wood cabinet, but we don’t recommend it unless you’re refinishing your existing cabinets. Refinishing your wood cabinets with a coating of paint is an excellent way of getting a new cabinet look without the cost of replacing your cabinets, as all you need to do is sand the surface and paint the cabinets the color of your choice. However, if you’re replacing your cabinets and you don’t want a stained look, we recommend choosing cabinets made of HDF (high-density fiberboard) over wood. HDF is the better option for paint because it holds an even coat of paint more consistently than wood and doesn’t warp.

Wood kitchen cabinets are available in a variety of door frame styles. Beveled wood doors enhance cottage kitchens, adding to a vintage feel. Plain door frames in natural wood add a modern, simple twist but also enriches the rustic feel of farmhouse kitchens.

  • Colors: Saddle, Chocolate, Conch Shell, Grey Wood, Oyster Shell, Dark Wood
  • Door Frames: Raised or recessed frames, or frameless slab-style
  • Hardware: Dark hardware on light cabinets, or light hardware on dark cabinets
  • Molding and Panels: Any


Dark Kitchen Cabinets

Where lighter hues open a room, darker tones bring an elegance, especially when paired with contrasting light colors for countertops, flooring, appliances, and décor.  They are easy to clean, as they hide blemishes and dirt better than white cabinets, but dark colors absorb light, making smaller kitchens feel even smaller.

Dark kitchen cabinets are available in a wide range of door frame styles, from modern frameless construction to transitional Shaker greys. Our frameless Wilora Paloma Marquis collection in Dark Wood features a unique horizontal wood grain that works well in modern style kitchens. Our Wilora Hawthorne Shaker Espresso collection feature a natural wood look, with deep, warm tones for classic kitchens. Colors: Cinder, Espresso, dark grey, dark wood

  • Door Frames: Raised or recessed frames, or frameless slab-style
  • Hardware: Contrasting colors and lighter metals like chrome or nickel
  • Molding and Panels: Any


What are Kitchen Cabinets Made Of?

Whether you choose to go with framed or frameless cabinets, the various components are made from different materials. At Vevano, our cabinets are durable and have plenty of character.

Box Material

The storage area is the cabinet box. Some manufacturers use particleboard because it’s an affordable material. However, particleboard isn’t made to last and tends to sag and warp under the weight of heavy dishes and marble countertops. As such, we use plywood because it’s durable, sturdy, and lasts much longer.

Our framed cabinets use plywood boards with a UV-coated wood-veneered interior. Every time you open your cabinets, you show off a natural woodgrain finish, adding to the overall style.

Our frameless cabinets use plywood with a white-grey linen interior infused with a durable thermofused melamine surface.

Framed Door Materials

With shaker, raised, or recessed cabinets in our framed cabinet collections, the door and drawer fronts are made of five pieces – a four-piece frame with a center panel.

For stained cabinets, the four-piece frame is made of solid birch with a veneered MDF (medium-density fiberboard) center panel. However, our Wilora Hawthorne Wildwood Saddle cabinets are made entirely of solid birch.

For painted cabinets, the frame and center panel are made of HDF (high-density fiberboard) for stability and durability. Since HDF doesn’t expand and contract like wood, it’s ideal for a framed door because the seams aren’t as likely to separate.

Frameless Door Material

The frameless doors in the Wilora Paloma collection are made from engineered wood with textured melamine surfaces. The single-piece slab style doors are great for engineered wood as the wood is free to expand or contract without fear of separating seams.


Pros and Cons of Kitchen Cabinet Materials

Solid Birch – a solid board harvested from a birch tree. Commonly used for cabinets and furniture because it’s widely available and durable.

Pros:

  • Real wood with unique grain patterns
  • Easy to stain
  • Can be refinished

Cons:

  • Expands and contracts with moisture and humidity
  • More expensive than engineered wood or fiberboard
  • Susceptible to bug infestation and rot


Engineered Wood with a Thermofused Melamine Surface – a slab made of several layers of sliced wood glued and pressed together with heat to create a board with a wood-grain textured surface.

Pros:

  • More affordable than solid wood
  • Doesn’t expand and warp to changes in humidity

Cons:

  • Lower quality wood material
  • Can’t be refinished

  • Stable in humid and dry environments

Cons:

  • Doesn’t have a wood grain
  • Warps and swells when exposed to water
  • Lacks the lifespan of wood


MDF (medium-density fiberboard) – a board made in similar fashion to HDF, but without as much pressure, making it lighter and less dense. Used primarily for panels.

Pros:

  • Easy to paint
  • Lightweight
  • Affordable

Cons:

  • Not as durable as HDF
  • Warps and swells when wet
  • Short shelf life in comparison to other materials


Plywood – thinly sliced sheets of wood glued and pressed together while alternating woodgrain direction 90 degrees. Used for cabinet boxes, shelves, and drawer floors.

Pros:

  • Doesn’t warp or swell in high humidity
  • Stable and strong enough hold heavy items
  • Takes a veneer, making it easy to get a beautiful wood look without the cost

Cons:

  • More expensive than other engineered materials
  • Not as strong as solid wood

Particleboard – a board made of sawdust, wood chips, synthetic resins and glues pressed together under heat.

Pros:

  • Extremely budget friendly
  • Lightweight and great for drawer boxes
  • Uses wood by-product and recycled materials

Cons:

  • Least durable wood product for cabinetry
  • Sags under heavy dishes, countertops, or appliances
  • Easily chipped or broken


How to Install Kitchen Cabinets

Hiring a professional to install your kitchen cabinets is costly. You can expect to pay between $150 to $500 per cabinet or $150 to $350 per square foot. However, you don’t have to spend anything. While installing cabinets takes time and sweat, it isn’t overly complicated. With the right equipment, precise measurements, and a little confidence you can install your own kitchen cabinets.

  1. Take very detailed measurements of your kitchen.
  2. Find and mark wall studs with a pencil or chalk.
  3. Mark lines to indicate where the top base cabinets will go. Typically, the top of the base cabinet is 34 ½” above the floor, but it can vary with desk base cabinets.
  4. Mark another line at about 53 7/8” above the floor to indicate where the bottom of the wall cabinets will be.
  5. Finally, mark a top line to indicate the top of the cabinets at between 83 7/8” – 95 7/8” (depending on the height of your wall cabinets). (Check the design plan you received from your designer for specific measurements and a more detailed install guide.)
  6. Starting with your corner wall cabinet box (without the door), use a power drill and a screw (never a nail) to secure the box to the wall by drilling through the cabinet’s back panel and into the studs. Make sure to do this at the top and bottom of the cabinet. Drill into two studs where possible. (Reference your design plan for measurements, especially for blind corner cabinets, which need a few inches of space between side walls.)
  7. When installing the next wall cabinet, attach the side adjacent to the mounted cabinet by clamping the sides together and screwing the two cabinet sides together.
  8. Next, install base cabinets by starting with the corner cabinet, referring to your design packet for specific measurements.
  9. Repeat steps 6 and 7, secure the base cabinet to the wall studs and adjacent cabinets.

Can I Paint Kitchen Cabinets?

Yes, painting cabinets is a budget-friendly way to change the look and style of a kitchen without the cost of replacing everything. However, DIY kitchen cabinet painting is time-consuming and can get complex. The current state of your existing cabinets influences how easy your project will be.

For example, the surfaces of engineered wood, MDF, or HDF cabinets can’t be refinished and prepped for a new coat of paint. They require you to paint over the old color, which may not take the new paint as consistently, causing pooled areas, dripping, and inconsistent streaking.

Solid wood cabinets, however, are easy to sand and prime for a smoother painting surface. But prepping the surface is a lot of time-consuming, physical work. If the surface is painted, you need to remove the paint and sand the surface. If the surface is stained, you need to sand the surface until the stain is gone.

If you’re looking for an easier solution to painting your cabinets, talk to one of our designers for free about a budget solution to update your kitchen. Vevano carries a wide variety of cabinet paint colors and stain styles.


Choosing the Perfect Kitchen Cabinet Hardware and Accessories

Changing up your kitchen accessories is a budget-friendly way to add style and function. Hardware is easy to update with changing styles and adds character to your cabinets. You can also use molding and cabinet lighting to give your cabinets a new look.

Kitchen Cabinet Hardware

Pulls and knobs cap off the style you’re searching for while also providing functionality to your doors and drawers. The style of a pull helps determine if a shaker cabinet is either modern, classic, or farmhouse.

Knobs are smaller than pulls, typically designed for the fingertips. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, materials, and finishes. Glass, crystal, metal, or ceramic knobs are all options, depending on the style you’re looking for. Shapes are most often round or square but can be oval, geometric, birdcage, abstract, or more.

Pulls, on the other hand, are made to fit into your hand, providing greater leverage when opening and closing. This makes pulls ideal for heavy drawers and large doors.

Drawer pulls are usually longer than knobs. And while the shape is different, the materials, styles, and finishes are typically the same as knobs. In fact, most pulls have knobs in the same style, allowing you to easily mix and match pulls and knobs in your kitchen without having styles clash.

Kitchen Cabinet Lights

Add functionality and ambiance with under-cabinet and in-cabinet lights. Under-cabinet lighting is a strip of lights or a puck installed to the underside of wall cabinets, illuminating the wall and countertop. This helps with food preparation, cooking, and cleaning. It also brightens up the kitchen since the areas under wall cabinets are generally shadowy and dark. If you have glass-front cabinets, adding in-cabinet lights creates a sophisticated look, like museum display cases, to highlight your favorite decorative dishware. They also make finding what you want easy and fast.

Kitchen Cabinet Molding

Added to the tops and bottoms of cabinets, molding adds a bit of panache and helps make your cabinets look complete and cohesive. Here are some different types of molding:

  • Crown molding encapsulates many types of molding, but it’s a decorative piece installed to the top of the wall cabinets, either to make the cabinets look taller or create a decorative transition between the cabinets and the ceiling.
  • Angle Crown Molding is a decorative piece placed between the bottom of the wall cabinet and the wall, creating a nice angled transition from the cabinet to the wall.
  • Light rail molding goes on the outside bottom of wall cabinets, adding decorative edges while concealing under-cabinet lights.
  • Toe-kick molding covers the space between the cabinets and the floor.
  • Scribe Molding is a small piece of wood used to cover inconsistencies, such as small gaps between two cabinets or where a cabinet meets a wall.
  • Shoe Molding is a rounded piece of wood used to cover inconsistencies between the toe-kick molding and the floor or the wall and the floor.
  • Apron Molding is a decorative piece of wood used as trim on the underside of wall cabinets or for windows near the cabinets. It’s used to conceal joints.
  • Batten Molding is a thin strip of wood used to cover seams between panels or cabinets.
  • Rope Molding is a decorative piece of wood carved to look like rope. It’s used to cover seams or add decorative details.


Kitchen Cabinet Panels

Kitchen cabinet panels are affixed to the exposed sides of cabinets, islands, and appliances to cover the exposed, unfinished sides of a cabinet box. Panels are available in decorative end panels, refrigerator end panels, dishwasher panels, and more. Designed to “finish” unfinished cabinets, panels are necessary to ensure a consistent look throughout your cabinets.


How to Organize Kitchen Cabinets

With so many styles, configurations, and options available, it’s easy to customize your cabinet organization to your lifestyle. Organization is key to making your cabinet storage practical.

Shelves

While most cabinets come with shelving, there are many additional cabinet parts for making your life easier.

  • Shelf organizers for pots, pans, and their matching lids.
  • Floating shelves for your most used items (bowls, mugs, etc.), on eye-level shelves.
  • Rollout shelves as a terrific alternative to traditional shelves, making it easier to access large items.
  • Pulldown shelves for accessing high items, so you don’t need a step ladder and can access items safely.


Lazy Susans

A Lazy Susan is a swiveling shelf ideal for corner cabinets where accessing the space is awkward and difficult. Perfect for containers, pots and pans, Tupperware, or snacks, a Lazy Susan provides an easier way to reach for kitchen necessities because you can turn the Lazy Susan, bringing the items to the front.

When storing containers on Lazy Susans, store lids with them or on the same shelf. These shelves are also great for storing snacks like crackers, canned food, or healthy afterschool treats.

Drawers

Drawer organizers provide a great solution for safely storing utensils, flatware, and dishware. Large drawers are designed to accommodate stacked plates, food storage containers, mixing bowls, and more to keep your countertops free from clutter.

Store cooking utensils in drawers by type of cooking, for easy access. Drawers close to the stove are perfect for oven gloves or pot-stirring spoons. Island drawers are great for flatware, close to seating or dining areas.

Spice Racks

Keep herbs and spices arranged neatly with a spice rack. Vevano carries a variety of spice rack organizers. Choose a door-mounted spice rack for upper shelves to keep your spice shakers at eye-level. Pick a drawer organizer spice rack to easily customize any drawer and keep your spices within reach. Vevano also carries spice rack base cabinets – slim 6” cabinets with rollout drawers to store spices.

Trash Can Pull-Outs

Maximize your storage space with a pull-out trash can. Many pull-outs also work for recycling and compost bins, or for storing cleaning supplies. A pull-out trash can also free up floor space in your kitchen and keeps trash out of reach from pets and children.


FAQs About Kitchen Cabinets

Do you have a question about your kitchen cabinet remodel? Don’t see your question below? Contact our design team at design@vevano.com to get your questions answered.

What color cabinets make a kitchen look bigger?

Light colors are best for making kitchens feel bigger because they reflect light, making rooms feel brighter, airy, and more spacious. White is the most reflective but colors like cream and light greys also reflect more light than darker colors.

Check out our white kitchen cabinet collections for a bright kitchen, or our grey kitchen cabinet collections for a slightly warmer kitchen.

What is the best height for kitchen cabinets?

The standard height for base cabinets is 34 ½” (without countertops). The bottom of your wall cabinets should be about 54” above the floor. These measurements leave enough space between your wall cabinets and your counter for appliances and cooking space. Wall cabinets themselves are typically between 30” and 42” high, depending on the design of your kitchen, the cabinet style, and height of your ceiling.

When do you need a cabinet contractor?

Hire a cabinet contractor when you’re ready in start your kitchen remodel. Whether you book an installer before you order cabinets or after, have them contact us at Vevano Pro. We work with your contractor throughout the shipping, assembly, and installation process to ensure your overall satisfaction.

We recommend hiring a cabinet contractor if any of the following apply to you:

  • You don’t have another person to help you. Wall cabinets require at least two people to safely and accurately install.
  • You’re unable to lift more than 20 pounds. Cabinets are large, so leave the heavy lifting to an expert.
  • You have a time constraint. Installing cabinets prior to a holiday party or selling your home? Professional installers can complete the project quickly.
  • Your kitchen’s floorplan is complicated. Professionals know how to better handle an uneven floor, non-standard sizing, and electrical or plumbing issues.

Depending on the size of your kitchen, it usually takes at least 2 to 3 days for a professional to install kitchen cabinets. Give yourself plenty of time if you need your cabinets installed on a deadline.

How much does it cost to replace kitchen cabinets?

The average cost to replace your kitchen cabinets is between $2,000 and $4,000. A general rule is to plan about $100 per linear foot of kitchen. So, if you have a 10 ft wall and another 10 ft wall, that’s 20 feet for base cabinets and 20 ft for wall cabinets, or 40 linear feet and $4,000 total.

Vevano carries RTA, or ready to assemble cabinets. With these, the cost of replacing cabinets in a 10x10 kitchen is generally between $2,000 and $3,000 for a 10x10 kitchen. We’ll send you detailed instructions for you can assemble cabinets yourself or hire a professional installer to do the work for you.

Preassembled cabinets are a bit more expensive, as you are paying for the assembly rather than doing it yourself. They also require more storage space so prepare a section of your home or garage to house the cabinets while you wait to install them.

Custom cabinets are the most expensive type of cabinetry and can set you back $7,000 to $9,000 (or more) for a 10x10 kitchen. They are best for unique layouts.

How much does it cost to install kitchen cabinets?

Installing Your Own Cabinets

First, you need tools: a hammer, ladder, miter saw, drill, stud finder, line level, clamps, and more. The average cost for tools to install kitchen cabinets is about $300 to $700. You can also save money by renting tools from your local hardware shop as well.

Pros: Save money and learn a new skill.

Cons: Installing your own cabinets without prior experience could result in costly mistakes, injury, or damage to your home.

Hiring a Cabinet Installer

For a professional installation, plan on at least $75 per linear foot. Pricing depends on the market in your area, but for a 10x10 kitchen with 40 linear feet, installers charge about $3,000 - $5,000.

Pros: Trained contractors work quickly and install with more accuracy. Many installers also remove and dispose of your old kitchen cabinets for you.

Cons: Adds significant cost to your renovation.

How many cabinets are in a 10x10 kitchen?

Most 10x10 kitchens usually have 10-12 cabinets: four to five base cabinets and six to seven wall cabinets. Your unique kitchen may require different quantities or types of cabinets. Some products are more common than others, such as sink base cabinets and corner cabinets for both base and wall. A bridge cabinet for over the refrigerator is also a common design element. Less common are desk, oven, and tall cabinets, since 10x10 kitchens are often too small.

Why are kitchen cabinets expensive?

Kitchen cabinets are expensive because they’re designed to be an integral part of your home for decades. Quality cabinets are built to last up to fifty years or more. Even though it’s easy to change your cabinetry, kitchen cabinets are more permanent than ordinary furniture.

Vevano’s cabinets are solid, durable, and can add value to your home to recoup some of your original investment. We even carry a few cabinet collections for 10x10 kitchens under $2,000. Contact our design team to receive a kitchen design plan that works with your budget.
