Mixing It Up with Drawer Fronts:

Years ago drawer fronts on kitchen cabinetry were most often a slab drawer of some type, either wood or metal.  As design preferences and with today’s popular Transitional styling, wider rails and stiles on doors and drawer fronts are common which decreases the available space in the center panel of a top drawer and can make finding the right knob or pull challenging.  Often times the width of the rails on the top drawer front are modified in to maintain a resemblance to the door style. Solid, slab drawer fronts on the top drawers with five piece drawer fronts below is a look that has been around for a while. Specifying solid slab drawer fronts for the top drawers provides a uniform look across the top of the base cabinets yet keeps the design detail of the larger drawer fronts below.
