Kitchen cabinets are a huge part of any kitchen design. They’re what make up most of your kitchen, after all! It’s important that you choose kitchen cabinets that are practical, efficient and make your kitchen space look great. But, if you’ve never chosen kitchen cabinets before, you might not know where to start – and even if you have chosen cabinets before, you might be wondering how to find ways to make your kitchen cabinets unique and set apart from all the other designs out there. Here are some of the most unique kitchen cabinet ideas for your space.

Ways to Make Your Design Unique

The cabinets in your kitchen are just one of the many ways you can make your design unique. Here are some tips for making your space one-of-a-kind! 

  • Prep them for glassGlass cabinets are beautiful in a variety of kitchen designs. Whether you’re going for rustic farmhouse or French chic, getting your cabinet doors prepped for glass will let you show off different plates, accent decor and anything else in your kitchen you’d want others to see.
  • Find interesting hardwareMany homeowners forget that the hardware they choose for their cabinetry can go a long way in creating an aesthetic with their design. Consider glass knobs, metal bars or even brass cup-shaped handles for an interesting design feature.

  • Consider open shelvingSimilar to prepping for glass, open shelving simply means that you have shelves in your kitchen with no cabinet base or door. This is great for people who frequently use their kitchen. Make sure you put the items that you use frequently on your open shelves so that you can access them easily and they won’t get dusty from sitting out.

  • Use different colors: Did you know that colors can elicit emotions? That’s right! Different colors can make you feel different ways. From temperature to emotion, color is an important part of any design. If you’re looking for a way to bring something unique to your kitchen design, consider using two different colors in your cabinets. We recommend having one color for your uppers and another for your lowers, or have one color for the cabinets lining your walls and another for your kitchen island. Don’t overdo it, though. Choose colors that complement each other and use the hardware to tie them together. 
  • Get creative with your islandA lot of homeowners will focus on having a sink, oven, cooktop and seating at the kitchen island. But, while you consider these options, why not think outside the box to create an island that is both functional and unique? Your kitchen island is a space for innovation, and bringing in open door cabinets, varied height cabinets and cabinet drawers of all different sizes can really increase the efficiency of your kitchen organization.
  • Hide your fridgeEver thought about hiding your fridge seamlessly in your kitchen design? If not, now’s your chance! An integrated kitchen design that’s sleek and modern includes a hidden fridge. Instead of traditional stainless steel doors, you can get fridge doors that mimic your cabinet doors, blending seamlessly into your kitchen design. How cool is that? It might take you a bit to remember which doors are for your fridge, though – just look for the ones that run the length of your kitchen wall!
