Despite what your network feed might be telling you, Shaker style isn’t the only direction for your kitchen cabinet designs. Of course, your kitchen cabinets are a long-term, often expensive commitment—you don’t want to go too trendy for fear you’ll hate them six months later. However, you also don’t want a cookie-cutter space that mirrors your neighbor’s (and her neighbor’s) kitchen. Rather than force yourself to choose one route or the other, meet in the middle.
We’ve found gorgeous cabinet designs that straddle unexpected and timeless. Take a look.
