Help me decide on cabinet style


Starting on my kitchen remodel and Im about to order my cabinets. Im trying to decide on shaker style flat panel vs raised panel. Im going with maple. Here are what the 2 options look like - sorry for the crappy pictures but all i had on me was my camera phone.
Shaker style

or
Raised Panel

I will also be going with granite countertops.
My home is a 1948 duplex and already renovated the upstairs kitchen. Here is what I did upstairs.

Did cheaper cabinets upstairs and laminate countertops.
My plan with renovations is to make it eventually sell it as an owner occupied duplex.
So just need some opinions on what style cabinets you think is best.

Picking a design style is strictly a personal choice. But some of the things to consider are other design features of the house. Dark wood in a dark kitchen is not a good choice. French style design is not a good choice in a plain modern house, etc., etc.

Wow, those cabinets are pretty similar in style. At first glance I would have said I like the first link better. This is just based off preference, I don't know that either is better for any reason, just opinion.

I like knobs on cabinets though, so I am sure that makes me biased towards the first link.

Good luck!

I agree. It doesn't matter what we think because you're the one that has to live with them day in and day out. Take a week and think it over and trust your first mind, the one that you favor should be the one you go with.
