Do you feel overwhelmed when you are browsing through cabinet options for your kitchen? You are not alone. Choosing cabinetry is among the toughest decisions a homeowner has to make while remodeling their kitchen.
Here are some of the most popular cabinet designs in kitchen remodels for you to get inspired.
Before you opt for an all-white kitchen, hear us out. More and more homeowners are going for two-tone cabinet design. It is a combination of a light and dark color theme for upper and lower cabinets respectively.
Since lower cabinets are more likely to get messy, it becomes easier to maintain them if they’re gray or black, as opposed to sparkling white.
A popular design trend is to stick to the middle ground. Homeowners are adopting transitional design as a way to hold onto the old while accepting the new.
Transitional design is ideal if you want to incorporate two or more design themes into your cabinetry.
Solutions for Smart Tech
Speaking of incorporating… Our needs are changing rapidly and so is how we design our cabinetry. The requirement to find a way to incorporate smart technology into our kitchens is increasing day by day.
Modern cabinetry design has to make room for tech requirements such as charging ports and docking stations.
It’s not just about smart tech. Our kitchens need to accommodate appliances, as well. Popular cabinet designs have made it possible to do so. The appliances are installed in custom panels to give them an integrated look to avoid any interruptions in the overall “flow” of cabinetry.
Not only does it serve the purpose but it also provides a clean design to the kitchen cabinetry.
Keeping It Clean
A lot of focus has shifted in terms of giving the kitchen a “clean aesthetic.” What does this mean? Cabinet design has moved towards a minimalistic approach. Many homeowners are staying away from ornate designs, but opting for a plain and clean look for their cabinets.
It may seem odd, but having no cabinets is also a popular cabinet design. Hear us out. Open kitchen shelves are slowly replacing upper cabinets in kitchens all over the country.
Tip: Be careful about the items that you store on open shelves. Opt for durable, light, and small items. Leave the expensive china in lower cabinets.
A popular cabinet design trend is to move the focus away from the cabinets and shift it to the hardware. Accent hardware like brass handles has been a hit among remodelers.
Not only does it provide a focal point in your kitchen but it also acts as a cheap remodeling hack if you don’t want to replace the entire cabinetry.
