How wide should cabinet rails and stiles be?
When it comes to traditional designs and the cabinet rails and stiles, it really depends on the type of theme and wood you’ve selected. Wider stiles and rails are used in true craftsmanship driven kitchens, as well as contemporary ones. It doesn’t matter what type of rail and stile you’ve selected.
Typically, the stiles and rails tend to be around 2”, with heavier models requiring wider boards. Depending on what type of cabinet design you want to go for, you can even opt for 3” wide thickness in your rails and stiles.
