5 Different Styles of Starmark Inset Cabinets

Jul 29, 2022

Are you considering getting some Starmark inset cabinets but aren’t sure about the style? Let us help with our breakdown of some of the most popular types of kitchen cabinets you’ll find in homes today!

Raised Panel

The raised panel door is one of the most popular cabinet styles in homes. Raised panel cabinets are what they sound like—a cabinet with a door featuring a raised panel, typically a square-shaped design with grooves completing a profile.

The design and profile of raised panel cabinets can be as straightforward or as intricate as the owner would like. Raised panel cabinets are most common in traditional and transitional homes due to their classic aesthetic.

Recessed Panel (Shaker)

Another typical style for Starmark inset cabinets is the inverse of raised panels—recess panel cabinets. Also known as shaker cabinets after their originators, recessed panels feature a straightforward design of a depressed profile outlined typically in a simple design.

Shaker cabinets are about as traditional a cabinet design as you can find—they’ve been around for over 200 years, after all! You can’t go wrong with the recessed panel if you’re looking for a timeless and classic cabinet to fit your kitchen or bathroom.

Slab (Flat-Front)

Slab, or flat-front cabinets, are what their name suggests—simple cabinets with flat front doors featuring no carvings or panels. The advantage of slab cabinets is their simplicity and clean lines, especially paired with inset cabinets and craftmanship.

Due to their clean lines and simplicity, homeowners looking to achieve a modern or minimalist aesthetic for their kitchen or bathroom love slab cabinets. A bonus for slab cabinets is they’re effortless to clean due to their simple design.


Glass-front cabinets are like shaker cabinets, but instead of a recessed panel, they feature a glass or set of glass panels. They’re a notably unique design that’s been around forever and is undeniably convenient since it allows homeowners to see within the cabinet without opening the door.

Pro Tip: Install lights within glass-front cabinets to add more light to the kitchen and illuminate your belongings in a soft glow.

It’s a bold choice for cabinets, which is why many homeowners will mix and match with glass-front doors—combining this style with something more traditional. It also offers another design opportunity as homeowners can add another design element to the back of the cabinet, like a different color or beadboard.

Natural (Unfinished)

Many more homeowners are choosing a unique choice for their Starmark kitchen cabinets, the natural, unfinished look. It may seem odd initially, but more homeowners are utilizing raw and organic materials in their homes. The natural cabinet style instantly makes a kitchen stand out uniquely.

If you decide it’s not for you, it’s easy to change it by adding a finish or paint color!
