Design Trend 2018: Flat Front Cabinetry

A traditional shaker cabinet with clean trim work has been the go-to for a while now. It is the look that I go for in most my kitchens. However, lately I’ve been seeing a lot of beautiful flat front kitchens cabinets. Flat front, or slab, cabinets have no trim work or recessed panels, just a simple solid door. It is a look that has always been popular in modern design, but I am seeing them more and more used in transitional spaces. The clean cabinets, when paired with otherwise traditional finishes and styling in a kitchen, feel like a fresh update.

If you like the clean look, but are worried about your kitchen feeling too modern for your aesthetic, consider keeping trim to a minimum or using flat front in part of your kitchen, while sticking with shaker in the rest for a beautiful layered look.
