Kitchens is one of the most important, if not the most important space in any home – here you get your first cup of coffee every morning, here you can cook and dine, receive guests and chat with your family, even work and read books – this is a very multifunctional place today. If you are looking for some ideas to give your kitchen a fresh new look, I have a solution that may interest you: try flat panels!
What Are Flat Panel Kitchen Cabinets?
Flat panel cabinets are cabinets that feature a completely flat front. Flat panel kitchen cabinets have no trim at all. They may or may not have hardware, depending on the overall design of the kitchen. A line of flat panel cabinets will look like a seamless plane, unlike a set of trimmed doors. You can still distinguish between the doors, but they have an overall smooth appearance, ideal for contemporary and minimalist spaces.

Flat panel doors are easier to clean than any other style as they are absolutely sleek and plain. Flat panel doors require less material, and that means they will be a bit less expensive. Flat panel cabinets look nice in any colors and stains, so any kitchen will can fit them easily.
The plain appearance is great for many designs and styles as it’s universal and it looks especially great in mid-century modern designs, which are trendy in many areas. If you have a complicated and quirky kitchen design, flat panels will be a perfect backdrop that won’t draw all the attention. Slab kitchen cabinets are easy to upgrade with time, should you choose to paint or stain them. Hardware stands out strongly on flat cabinet doors, which is great if you want to accent your kitchen with that.

Cons Of Flat Panel Kitchen Cabinets
Flat cabinets and doors might be too simplistic for some kitchen designs, especially if you have everything else plain here. You may see fingerprints on flat panel doors, though that’s largely based on the color and finish.
