Gilbert Kitchen Cabinet Styles, Colors and Materials

When deciding on a new set of Gilbert cabinets for your kitchen in Gilbert AZ, you should try to pick a set that matches your current or future kitchen design. You should choose Gilbert cabinets that can fit into multiple kitchen designs should you decide to change your kitchen up again in the future.

Wood is by far the most popular choice for Gilbert cabinets, as over 90 percent of cabinets are wood throughout the United States and in cities like Gilbert. Woods like maple, oak, cherry, alder, birch, pine, and other less common woods are a very popular choice for kitchen redesigns. These woods each have a wide range of stain, door style and glaze options that can be customized to fit into any kitchen.


There are also laminate, melamine, thermofoil, and lacquer cabinets which are increasingly popular budget choices.  Thermofoil cabinets are the second most popular in the U.S., followed by melamine and lacquer. Thermofoil cabinets are an affordable alternative that come in many different textures and can be used for budget Gilbert cabinets. Thermofoil is susceptible to heat and water damage and this should be taken into consideration.


Stainless steel and aluminum are less common choices that are used in European kitchens and have been spotted in some Gilbert kitchens. Both aluminum and stainless steel can be used with a number of different finish styles available for Gilbert cabinets, and some incorporate glass windows.


Lacquer cabinets are an increasingly popular choice for Gilbert cabinets because they can resist stains and they are less susceptible to damage over time. Lacquer finishes are available in an unlimited number of colors and are also easier to clean and more resistant to water damage, as long as the lacquer finish is of a good quality.


With your Gilbert cabinets being a more permanent feature of your kitchen, you might also pick an option that can improve the resale value of your home.
