There are a few essentials when it comes to designing your kitchen. Of course, the worktops are crucial and the layout is a fundamental, but to really pull the design together it is the joinery that must be considered and deliberated.

Kitchen cupboards are the bricks and mortar of your cooking area. They offer storage for all the essentials, and impart a huge stylistic impression on the entire space. However, with such a wide range of options and possibilities, it can seem almost impossible to choose the right design. Colours, textures, styles and accessories are all vital, while the cabinets also need to fit your space, and reflect your aesthetic sensibilities.

If you’re planning a new kitchen or a makeover of your existing space, check out our 45 practical cabinets and joinery below. We’ve got colourful, dramatic and aspirational examples that are sure to impress and delight. Let’s check them out…
