If you’re thinking of swapping out your kitchen cabinets for a new and improved look OR a more trendy choice OR both — then read about these 12 hot trends in kitchen cabinetry.
Dark Cabinet Finishes
Chocolate and espresso hues are hot right now. This flexible treatment can be incorporated into traditional and contemporary kitchens.
Natural Look Textured looks are in.
Glazed looks are giving way to texture. Wood grain peeking through brushed finishes are especially hot right now.
Cabinets for Country-Style Kitchens
If you have a country or cottage style kitchen, light colored cabinetry is a great choice.
Classic Cherry Cabinets
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), Cherry is still the most popular wood for kitchen cabinetry, followed closely by maple. Traditional cherry cabinetry matched with cherry floors and granite cabinets can give your kitchen a timeless appeal.
Exotic Touch With Bamboo Cabinets
Bamboo cabinets are very unique. You can also maintain an “exotic” look using alternative woods such as mahogany, sapele and anaglade.
Flat-panel cabinets are perfect if you want a modern or contemporary kitchen. High-gloss bisque cabinets with sleek stainless steel handles can provide a very slick appeal.
According to the NKBA, Shaker has overtaken contemporary as the second most-popular kitchen cabinet style.
Base Cabinet Drawers
Many homeowners are utilizing base drawers over wall cabinets. Drawers are far more accessible than cabinets and can be used to organize dishes, pots, pans, utensils and more.
Specialty Storage Cabinets
Mid-priced fixtures now contain pullout spice racks and built-in utensil dividers.
Many cabinet manufacturers offer gorgeous panels that will fit over your refrigerator, oven and dishwasher. This allows them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the kitchen.
Maximized Cabinet Storage
If you have the space, install wall cabinets that extend to the ceiling. This allows you to make use of higher-up space for storing infrequently used specialty serveware and cookware.
Kitchens are being designed as an extension of the other living spaces. Kitchen cabinetry is now mimicking furniture styles found throughout the rest of the home.
