Below are four of the main types of kitchen cabinets homeowners can choose from when building or remodeling their kitchen.

  2. Wall. Wall cabinets are a great way to create more space and organization in your kitchen; they are also more easily accessible. These cabinets are 12 inches deep and can be increased to 17 inches deep in some cases.
