Your choice of kitchen cabinets is so important. They will account for a significant proportion of the cost of your Melbourne kitchen renovation. Plus, the style and finish you choose will have a big impact on the look of your new kitchen.
Quality is crucial and the best combination is well-built cabinetry using the best materials.
You're doing yourself no favours if you opt for one but not the other.

Cabinet doors, drawers and handles have a strong influence on the look and feel of most kitchens. And they're among the first features people notice.
It's vital to get these aspects just right and, fortunately, you have a wide range of options.
Sometimes it's pretty straight-forward – for instance, ultra-high gloss, flat, handleless doors are likely to look out of place in a French provincial style kitchen.
Most people have an overall kitchen style in mind, which helps to narrow the range of options and whether or not a profile or flat door is best.

Flat speaks for itself. There are no door features – it's perfectly flat (which makes it easy to just wipe over with a cloth). The clean, minimalist style makes it a good choice for modern and contemporary kitchens.
Glass-front doors are great for displaying items inside cabinets. They can also be used to add variety to your cabinetry – just one or two glass fronted doors will add interest.
