1. White cabinets

White cabinets are a popular choice because they can be paired with any colour scheme and they always look sleek and modern.


  • They are versatile and can be used in any type of kitchen.
  • They reflect light which makes your kitchen appear brighter and bigger.


  • They are likely to show dirt and fingerprints more easily.
  • They can make a small kitchen feel clinical.

2. Dark cabinets

Dark cabinets are perfect for a traditional or rustic-style home, and they add a touch of elegance to any room.


  • They are ideal for hiding scratches and fingerprints.
  • They add depth and dimension to your kitchen.


  • They can make a small kitchen feel cramped.
  • They can require more regular upkeep than white cabinets as you'll need to dust them regularly.

3. Glass-front cabinets

Glass-front cabinets are great for displaying your favourite china or dishes, and they make the kitchen feel more open and spacious.


  • They allow you to show off your pretty dishes!
  • They make the kitchen feel more open and airy.


  • They require more upkeep than closed cabinets (you will need to dust them regularly).
  • They are not ideal for hiding clutter.

4. Cabinet Lighting

Cabinet lighting is a great way to accentuate your kitchen cabinets and add ambient lighting to your kitchen.


  • Lighting can highlight open shelving or open cabinets.
  • It is a great way of having some ambient light when the kitchen is not in use.


  • It can add extra expense to your kitchen fit-out.
  • Power is required so it is sometimes difficult when renovating or retrofitting.

5. Cabinet knobs & pulls

Don't forget about the hardware! Cabinet knobs and pulls can really make or break a design.


  • They can add a touch of personality to your kitchen.
  • They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.


  • They can be a bit tricky to find if you have specific cabinet dimensions.
  • You'll need to drill new holes in your cabinets for installation.

6. Pull-out shelves

Pull-out shelves can help you reach items at the back of the cabinet without having to move anything else around.


  • They make it easy to reach items with ease.
  • They help you to organise your cabinet space.


  • They can be a bit tricky to install.
  • They can add cost to the kitchen fitout.

Bonus! Cabinet organisers

Cabinet organisers are perfect for storing pots, pans, and other kitchen gadgets.


  • They help you to organise your cabinet space.
  • They make it easy to find what you're looking for.


  • You'll need to do maintenance periodically to keep them organised.
  • They can be a bit pricey.
