When you decide to remodel your kitchen there are almost no limits to the options you have when it comes to cabinets. This is why choosing the style of your cabinet door first is recommended by the experts. This is because your kitchen cabinets are the center of your design. After selecting your cabinets, it is so much easier to coordinate the other design elements, such as countertops, backsplash and flooring.
Popular Kitchen Cabinet Designs
White cabinets are still very popular, but our consultants at Innovative Kitchen and Bath are seeing an increase in the use of natural wood grains and other colors for remodeling and refacing projects. Here are some popular kitchen cabinet designs to help inspire you with your kitchen project choices.
Maintenance Free, Wood Grain Cabinets
Wood grain cabinet doors give the kitchen a natural warmth feel. With the convenience of maintenance free laminate doors, you can achieve the look of real wood. They come in a whole range of many colors and styles that will continue to look stunning for years to come.
Classic Styles in Bold Colors
Cabinet refacing provides you with a great opportunity to include more color in your kitchen design, although some homeowners have uncertainties about bold, and particularly dark shades. When using color in your kitchen design, the trick is to choose a single shade as the base of your color palette, either to use as an accent color or as part of a two-tone combination.
Our recommendation is to pair a darker color for the bottom cabinets with lighter upper cabinets. This will make your design more visually appealing. Besides, lower cabinets usually take on most of the mess and darker colors tend to be easier to keep looking clean.
Add Interest with Gray Cabinets
Often homeowners who still want a neutral color palette but prefer something other than white find that gray is a shade they love. It is a warm and inviting choice of cabinet color allowing for inspirational pairings with backsplashes and countertops.
Storage Solutions with Custom Cabinets
Custom storage solutions with endless possibilities are becoming very popular this year. The way they can be integrated into their kitchen cabinetry is what many homeowners love, as well as the functional organization provided by these products.
