Pick Your Perfect Cabinet Style

When designing your new kitchen, your cabinetry selection has a significant impact on the overall look. Whether you love the Hamptons style or want something more sleek and modern, the door profile- or cabinet door fronts- you choose will play a huge role in creating your perfect kitchen look. Here at Kinsman, we are proud to offer a range of stylish joinery, available in various door profiles, colours and texture, designed to suit the kitchen style you wish to achieve.

Below we explore our top 3 door profiles- Shaker, Flat & V-groove- and what kitchen styles they suit. Don’t worry if you can’t pick a favourite – you can mix and match to bring many different looks to life!

1. Shaker- style cabinets.

The Block judge and style aficionado Neale Whitaker choose Somersby Sierra Grey Shaker-style doors throughout his kitchen in his country home in Southern NSW!

Perfect for a kitchen that celebrates a Hamptons, Country or Coastal look, Shaker-style cabinets are a firm favourite in Australian interiors. Our two Shaker-inspired doors, Somersby and Camden showcase a classic five piece design, providing just enough detail without being distracting.

Our Montauk Shaker-style door profile has a 40mm rail and pairs beautifully with the grey and white hues of the stone splashback. This Kinsman kitchen celebrates whites and moody greys and effortlessly evokes a relaxed yet chic beach vibe.

Somersby offers a traditional, bold square indent design, ensuring your joinery is a focal point within your new kitchen design. Camden features a subtle and thin profile and is a wonderful choice for those wishing to create a more understated look. Both doors are firm favourites for our customers, and have been featured in several kitchens on Channel Nine’s renovation show – The Block. Available in 12 stylish colours, including classic whites, greys and blacks, it’s easy to see why these doors are so popular- they will never go out of style

2. V-groove cabinets

Add texture to rich, dark cabinetry in your kitchen by opting for a panelled design such as the Avoca Bottega Oak joinery shown.

Enjoying a recent surge in popularity, V-groove cabinets (also known as tongue-and-groove cabinets) make a visual impact with their clean vertical lines and will suit a rustic Country kitchen just as easily as a more contemporary style home.

A mixture of cabinetry in Kinsman’s classic Shaker-profile Somersby in White Matt and Avalon in Oxford provides the perfect palette for a Modern Country style.

We have recently introduced two new door profiles to our range to reflect this design: Avoca and Avalon, which come in the same 12 colours as our Somersby and Camden doors. Avalon is a luxurious panel-look door available in a matte finish, while Avoca features a thinner, vertically-fluted decorative design. We love to match this joinery with other profiles within our range; for example, pair with Shaker-inspired doors for a traditional kitchen and flat cabinetry for a more modern space.

3. Flat cabinets. 

Create a beautiful canvas for your kitchen with flat cabinetry just like Luke and Jasmin did on The Block 2020.

Flat door fronts create a strong foundation to build your dream kitchen upon, allowing you to add details through hardware for a more layered look or keeping it simple with touch catch and integrated handles. Smooth joinery will keep your design looking seamless and streamlined, making its design ideal for evoking looks from Industrial through to the clean lines of the Scandinavian style. We offer many flat door styles within the Kinsman range in various finishes, textures and colours, including our Artarmon, Ballina, Chadstone, and Oxley cabinetry. Alternatively, our Caringbah door offers a softer and unique look, featuring a 3mm pencil round edge.

Mix and match flat joinery with more detailed profiles to create a bespoke look that catches the eye.

Flat joinery acts as a blank canvas to evoke different looks for your new kitchen. For example, Luke and Jasmin from The Block 2020 selected Oxley Supa Ultra White Matt throughout their light and bright kitchen, maintaining the sleek look with a mixture of Touch Catch and integrated Marq UltraGold handles. Their neighbours Jimmy and Tam also used flat joinery but created a different look entirely! By pairing mint green Ballina Enamel doors with Camden Oyster Grey Matt and Avalon Oyster Grey, their kitchen was unlike anything the judge had seen before, and they loved it!
