Storage is essential for every household. And when you don’t have enough of it, you’ll know its effects. For busy areas of your home like the kitchen or the bathroom, you’ll definitely want sufficient cabinet designs to organize all your items and amplify your luxurious vibes. Everyone knows these areas have a ton of stuff to keep organized!  

While the bathroom will probably have fewer things or at least maybe smaller items, the essentials still need to be stored properly. And you definitely don’t want water getting to them. So you will want to be sure the storage itself will resist moisture as well so it also doesn’t get damaged in the long run. All these are practical needs, which of course are important, but we also must consider appearance as a luxury cabinet design can really level up your look!


Making Your Cabinets Grand: 10 Ideas for Luxurious Kitchen and Bath Cabinet Designs


When shopping for luxury cabinets, design is a huge selling point. Choosing suitable storage areas will depend on your taste and the vibe you’re going for. Thankfully, you’ll find a plethora of cabinet styles you’d love in trusted shops like MacLaren Kitchen and Bath and others near you.

The struggle lies in looking through many different designs and styles. It’s bound to get overwhelming, so you’ll need to have a solid idea or vision. This will make the process easier, but you’ll probably want to keep your options open if you’re going to try something new.  

To give you a taste of how different cabinets can contribute to the overall design of your kitchen or bathroom, take a look at these ideas.

1. Elegantly Simple Designs 

Luxury can look different for people, and what others think is elegant could be tacky to some. But if there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s the simplicity of elements making a space grandeur. If you’re unsure about what kind of cabinets to get, there’s no way you can go wrong with sleek cabinets, whether it’s plain shelves seamlessly blending with your walls or darker shades to give a more sophisticated look.

The key to elegance is toning down without embellishments. If you’re looking for inspiration checking out the video below is a great place to start.

2. Play With Various Colors 

If you aren’t too keen on plain cabinets, a pop of color will be perfect for you. You probably have a more adventurous taste when it comes to interior design, so go for cabinet designs standing out to reflect your personality and luxury style! 

It can be tricky because you can come up with uncoordinated color schemes in your bathroom or kitchen, so it’s best to research color schemes to help you plan out the overall design.

3. Do Without The Handles 

One way you can modernize your kitchen is to try out cabinets without handles to give you a smoother surface for a more polished and seamless look. This cabinet style might not suit all interior designs, but it’s excellent for modern or minimalistic styles. And just like elegant cabinet designs, it’s timeless, so you don’t have to remodel any time soon.

4. Emulate Opulence With Glass Doors 

Cabinet doors with glass are a great way to add a luxury look to dull cabinets. Just like other materials, glass can come in different finishes like frosted, clear, satin, tinted, reflective, and many more. If you want to make your bathroom look expensive, glass panels in your cabinet doors can help you achieve it. Plus, it’s easier to clean because it won’t get stained easily. Just make sure you get a high-quality glass to avoid it breaking.

Or if you like the look of glass but still want to hide the contents inside your cabinets you could also go for an opaque or textured glass.

5. Level Up With Open Shelving 

Closed cabinets are great if you don’t like seeing all your stuff out in the open. But if you have things worth showing off, having open shelving installed will do just the trick. They’re also easier to install and move, so you have the freedom to switch them with other cabinets if you feel like it. 

But in terms of design, open shelving can also be used with closed cabinets to prevent bulkiness. Open shelves in certain spots can bring balance and opportunity for any homeowner to put up pieces of décor worth showing. 

6. Get Creative With Free-Standing Cabinets

Some kitchens and bathrooms don’t have built-in storage, so free-standing luxury cabinets are a great way to add storage. It’s also easier for you to remodel any space because you won’t have to take down fixed shelving to change the interior design. These cabinets come in all sorts, and the best part is you’re free to place them in any corner of the room.

7. Add More Definition With High Contrast Cabinets 

High contrast has been trendy when it comes to furniture. For instance, darker cabinets and drawers against a bright countertop are going to give a striking effect. To make it even more stunning, you could choose different materials for varying textures, too. For instance, dark wood paired with marble counters can look lush and extravagant as it can make any kitchen or bathroom fitting for anyone with a refined taste.

8. Glam It Up With Hardware 

While the cabinet design is the main focus, hardware can surely catch anyone’s attention, especially if they’re exquisitely made. Against plain cabinets, beautiful hardware such as handles or knobs can make a huge difference. Some are old-fashioned, and simply changing them to newer ones can also refresh your look.

9. Use Vertical Space For More Storage 

Not everyone has an enormous kitchen or bathroom to work with, but it doesn’t mean you can’t make your cabinet design luxurious. For limited space, selecting luxury cabinets with vertical space for storage can be a lifesaver. A vertical cabinet design allows you to use an area wisely and it can also help improve the overall look of your kitchen or bathroom.

Many kitchens use vertical space because of the vast number of things for cooking that need organization. But for bathroom cabinets, it is much less common. Still, it’ll make any small and cluttered area look cozier and more organized.

10. Go Back In Time With Restored Vintage Cabinets 

Vintage restoration has become popular through the years, and nothing screams luxury like gorgeous vintage pieces. If you’re worried these are going to fall apart, look into restored cabinets. These have been made to be more durable, long-lasting, and appropriate for modern homes.

Plus, vintage cabinets aren’t just furniture pieces. They are also usually decorative because of how artistically they’ve been crafted.

To Wrap Things Up

When designing your kitchen or bathroom, you’ll have to decide on color schemes, decorative pieces, lighting, and many other things. But you can’t keep these spaces orderly without cabinets, and of course, having them match your luxury style is a must. Just make sure they don’t look dull, so you can keep your entire home’s interior design as aesthetically pleasing as possible!
