Changing your cabinetry can transform the look and style of your kitchen. New or repainted cabinets will quickly update your space and bring you the joy of expressing yourself in decor. Here are four popular trends in kitchen cabinets that will have your space looking amazing.
This practical trend can give the kitchen an airy, open feel, making it ideal for smaller kitchens. With open shelving, there is no need to open and close cabinet doors, and it’s as easy as installing shelves. Try a color that’s different from the walls so the shelves pop. You’ll want to keep shelves well organized so they don’t look cluttered. Display matching dishware or make a statement with a fun eclectic collection of dishes.
Glass-Front Upper Cabinets
This trend lets you display your pretty kitchenware while keeping it safely enclosed. There are lots of options for glass-front cabinets, so the look can be either casual or formal. Choose glass fronts on all the upper cabinets or just a few as an accent. The glass can be transparent or opaque, frosted glass—design options even include textured or etched glass.
Traditional cabinets stop a few feet from the ceiling, but there is a trend to extend cabinetry all the way to the ceiling. One advantage of floor-to-ceiling cabinets is more storage space for dishes and appliances. Taller cabinetry brings height to your kitchen and gives it a clean, classic look.
Traditionally, the bottom cabinets in a kitchen would match the top cabinets, but there is a current trend shaking up that style. Split the kitchen visually and add a unique style by choosing different colors for top and bottom cabinetry. Choose different shades of the same color or use colors that are different but complementary.
