Arts & Crafts Kitchen Styles
Hahka Kitchens Design and Cabinetry, 2009
Grounded in form and function, Arts & Crafts kitchens rely on a natural personalized look with a strong emphasis on craftsmanship. Recessed panel doors with thick frames are dominant; consider letting the doors into the frame by using flush frame cabinetry. For an interesting accent, contrast the finishes or woods of the frame against those of the door and panel.
Shaker: Look to maple, birch, beech or oak veneered woods. For this simple, puritan style, choose inset flat panel doors. Wide rails and stiles are fairly typical in the cabinet frame.
