Inspiration gallery: slab-style kitchen cabinets

Kitchen cabinets

Are you the type of person that likes lots of choices in life? I know I am – (although if I’m given too many options, I have been know to have a mild panic and end up not picking anything at all.) If you are, then slab-style kitchen cabinets could be perfect for you.

Being both modern and simplistic, this slab-style kitchen cabinets feature a flat panel with a handle, making it incredibly versatile. It offers nearly an endless array of designs, which are the “ultimate choice” for a contemporary kitchen – win win, right?

These styles come in a variety of colours, shapes, sizes, and finishes – from high gloss and metallic to matte – and can be paired with any of the thousands of handles on the market. (So you really do have to be someone who likes a lot of choice!)

Although contemporary kitchens frequently feature white cabinets, darker colours can be used to achieve an on-trend look.

Finally, it’s important to consider materials carefully. If you’re thinking of using a monolithic marble piece, for example, complement the veining with deep grey, navy or black cabinets. To finish the look, opt for sleek pendant lighting, high-shine accessories, and structural furniture. Beautiful!
