Choos­ing the right style for your new kitchen can be a daunt­ing feat. Start by look­ing at the over­all style of your home. Frame­less cab­i­nets with glossy doors could be a per­fect match for con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture, while an older-style home might suit a more tra­di­tional kitchen with Shaker-style face-frame cab­i­nets, pan­elled doors and fea­ture han­dles. Then con­sider how your cho­sen fin­ishes will im­pact the wider room. “A crisp white kitchen can brighten up the space, while a com­bi­na­tion of dif­fer­ent fin­ishes and tex­tures can in­tro­duce some per­son­al­ity,” says Carmel. Black and other dark hues have gained new pop­u­lar­ity in re­cent years. Matt fin­ishes seem to ab­sorb the light, while high-gloss cab­i­nets will bounce light around the room – great if you have limited nat­u­ral light or a small room.

Moody hues are the or­der of the day in this so­phis­ti­cated kitchen. Near-black ve­neer cabi­netry is com­ple­mented by the dark tones of the Cala­catta mar­ble break­fast bar.
