Updating your kitchen cabinets is one of the easiest ways to capture a fresh look and feel to your kitchen. Create your dream kitchen with NEW kitchen cabinets. Below are some suggestions to get your ideas flowing and leave you feeling inspired.
First and foremost, despite any of these trends, many homeowners are adding cabinet styles, colors and functions that fit their needs and desires. As time has evolved, cabinet companies have come up with numerous styles that match any home design or style. As a result, even homeowners who can afford them are passing over custom cabinets for more affordable, yet design-friendly, semi-custom cabinets.
Overall, in today’s world, there is no cookie-cutter kitchen cabinet design. Ask any kitchen expert for hot designs and they will almost certainly say that personalization and tailored designs are sticking around through 2015, into 2016.
Clean Lines & Subtle Design
Two other dominant trends for kitchen cabinets are clean lines and subtle designs. To ensure design flexibility in the long term, cabinet door styles have become simpler, using clean lines. As the modern style continues to gain steam, clean lines and subtle designs make ideal sense for anyone looking to upgrade their kitchen cabinets.
Matching another kitchen remodeling trend, clean lines go perfectly with black and white kitchens. As I noted in Kitchen Remodeling Trends For 2015-16, black and white kitchens tend to offset each other and give the kitchen a clean, sleek and visually appealing design. Clean lines, along with black and white kitchens, can also offset the tension between rustic, modern and transitional kitchens.
Along with the classic black and white, shaker style cabinets have remained in vogue for years. At first glance, some associate shaker as a plain, square design that doesn’t leave much room for imagination. However, many more attractive versions of the shaker have come to life since the 1800s.
One way to install terrific shaker cabinets is by using premium quality wood. With its simple design, shaker cabinets let the wood or material do the talking. Just like a knife does the work when you’re cutting an onion, the wood tends to speak the loudest when it comes to shaker cabinets.
Just how prevalent are shaker cabinets?
“Ninety-nine percent of the time, it’s a white painted-wood shaker door with a square picture and simple recessed center,” Anthony Maucieri, president of East Hill Cabinetry said.
White, Gray & Neutral Colors
Along with the clean line theme, white kitchen cabinets are still quite popular, as you saw above, but gray, along with other neutral colors have began to set up shop.
Many homeowners are opting for refined neutral colors and earthy tones that work well with a variety of design elements. These colors not only provide a sense of warmth, but give you more design freedom to add bold colors elsewhere, providing a seamless blend throughout the house.
If you don’t want to replace your kitchen cabinets, but want to add a different pop of color, try painting. We even outlined the Best Way To Paint Kitchen Cabinets.
