Get The Top 5 Cabinet Trends and Styles for 2016
Not to be cliché or anything, but the kitchen is the heart of your home, and your kitchen cabinets are the focal point of the kitchen. So it’s pretty dang important when choosing your new cabinets that you choose a beautiful design that your family will love for years to come. Luckily, 2017 cabinet trends are full of gorgeous, timeless designs that you’ll love, now and in 20 years.
Trend #1: Custom Kitchen Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets are no longer one-size-fits-all (which is good, because one-size-fits-all pretty much never fits all).
Your kitchen furniture should be personalized to you, your family, and your home, and 2017 trends agree! When you opt for customized kitchen cabinets, you can tailor the color, design, and hardware of your cupboards to your personal and lifestyle needs.
And if completely custom cabinets aren’t in your budget, have no fear. More and more customers are choosing semi-custom cabinetry because the options are so wide.
So no matter your price point, you are sure to find a unique, personalized cabinet that perfectly suits your family’s tastes and needs.
Trend #2: Shaker Cabinets
Shaker-style cabinets have been around for a while, but they aren’t going anywhere in 2017. These simple, classic designs help keep a modern, contemporary kitchen timeless.
The best way to take advantage of this clean, simple trend is to use quality materials to showcase the high-quality wood. You can keep natural with a gloss or a stain, or you can paint them in any of today’s popular colors, which we’ll get to later in this post.
Trend #3: Sleek and Modern Cabinets
If the classic Shaker look isn’t up your alley, then a frameless, sleek cabinet is the one for you.
When you think of modern kitchen cabinets, these are the type you probably imagine; they have crisp, sleek, minimalistic designs. The clean lines of sleek and modern cabinets make sure that nothing in your kitchen design is too busy or overwhelming. And thanks to the customized cabinet trend, you can get this style in any wood, color, and finish that suits your home best. Perfect!
Trend #4: White and Grey Cabinets
White and Grey are having a big moment in interior decorating right now, and kitchen cabinet design is no exception.
No longer thought of as cold or clinical, light colors like white and grey are fresh, bright, and inviting. White cabinetry is a blank canvas for you to personalize your kitchen any way you wish. And if you want to change your kitchen’s design in a few years, white cabinets will go with almost anything that you choose!
If you have white cabinets that feel outdated, it’s probably the style, not the color that feels old. So when you do install new white cabinets, make sure to keep the lines clean and modern to ensure that your grey or white kitchen cabinets feel just as modern as they are.
Trend #5: Tech-Friendly Kitchens
This trend is a no-brainer. Today’s modern kitchens simply have to be tech-friendly.
We are always in the kitchen and always using our technology, so we have to be able to store and charge our smartphones, tablets, and other devices in the kitchen as well! Be sure to include a charging station and tech-devoted cabinet in your new kitchen plan.
Because kitchen cabinets are one of the central features of your home, it is so important that their style, color, and design are modern and contemporary. Choose whichever trend on this list suits your family and your space to keep your kitchen looking fresh but timeless.
