Are you thinking about getting new cabinets for your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or other areas in your home? Over time, frequently-used cabinets can get scuffed, scratched and worn. Refinishing them is a possibility, but you should also consider a full replacement, especially if you’d like to bring older cabinets up to date to match other areas in your home. To help fuel your imagination, here are some top cabinet trends to consider!
Sustainably Sourced Materials
One big trend for new cabinets is finding innovative ways to make them eco-friendly. That can take several different forms, all worth taking a look at! Some cabinets are focusing on sustainable materials, like properly sourced bamboo (which makes for beautiful cabinet patterns). Others look at recycling solutions by upcycling various types of used lumber to create unique and beautiful cabinet designs that work well for both rustic and industrial themes.
More Colored Cabinets
Colorful cabinets were out of style for a while, but they are making an interesting comeback as a splash of color in an otherwise white or gray kitchen. It’s a great way to add life to a kitchen area while also updating your cabinets – and a full replacement isn’t necessary. Popular colors include fruit and vegetable shades like lemon, blueberry, avocado and more. Match whiter surfaces or darker trim, and you’ll have a winning combo.
Glass cabinet doors accomplish several different things. They allow you to show off the inside of your cabinets and any particularly beautiful dishes (or herb containers, olive oil bottles, etc.) that you may have. At the same time, they encourage you to keep those areas clean since they aren’t exactly hidden away anymore. This also helps open up the kitchen and makes it more interesting from a design perspective. You may not want to make all your cabinets glass, but for certain sections, it’s a great renovation.
One interesting new trend building a lot of steam is minimalistic handles, especially handles that don’t stick out at all. This includes many different kinds of cut-out and cup-shaped handles. This can give a line of cabinets a very distinct, minimalistic design that looks great in many kinds of kitchens.
When people are renovating their kitchens, they’re choosing larger cabinets this time around. It’s easy to see why: Larger cabinets can hold larger dishes, including pots and pans, so they give you more options for how and where you want to store things. More storage space is particularly attractive in the kitchen, and extra cabinet space allows you to offset some other types of storage, like storing cleaning supplies or toys in a less accessible kitchen cabinet for safety.
Dark Goes Darker
For dark-theme kitchens, new themes are pushing colors even dark – straight on to black. This can create a very striking kitchen, although dark cabinets will probably need to be balanced out with light colors elsewhere. If you like the idea of black cabinets, go for it – but plan your other kitchen design around this.
