Slab cabinet doors are most often used in contemporary designs, as they are simply a flat slab of wood—smooth with no panels, contours or accents. Accent cabinet doors are more decorative than functional and are not used on all of the cabinets. They can be made of glass doors, louver doors, mullion doors, leaded glass doors and aluminum frames, among other styles. In the right setting, accent cabinet doors can blend in easily with any design style.
Having glass kitchen cabinets doesn't mean you have to replace your cabinets. If your existing cabinets are in good condition, you can install glass inserts instead. Adding muntins to a plain glass design that mimics the architectural designs and moldings of the house will add a sense of continuity and bring all the elements together for a finished look.
That said, there are "transitional" styles that can work for any size space—for example, Shaker-style cabinetry can be made to feel modern, traditional or style-neutral simply by choosing cabinet hardware, paint or stain that reflects one of those styles. Your kitchen cabinets are the centerpiece of your space, and the style you choose is a reflection of your personality.
