For most families, the kitchen is the heart of the home.
Needless to say, we like to take pride in its appearance. On average, most people budget between $25,001 and $50,000 to update their kitchen. You want to ensure everything is exactly how you want it.
This is why we’ve put together a mini guide on the latest kitchen cabinet trends. Hopefully, this will help steer you in the right direction!
If you’re thinking of redecorating, you should check out these kitchen cabinet trends. Without further ado, let’s dive on in.
1. You Can’t Go Wrong with a White Cabinet, but Grey is Nice!
If you’re considering buying new kitchen cabinets the safe bet is always white. Everything matches whites, and resell always likes a white. This is true when I started and even now. Pick up any decorating magazine and you’ll see over half the kitchens are white….and that’s true year after year.
Industry experts predict that while white cabinetry will stay on trend, grey is increasingly likely to win the second spot in the near future. This is especially true when you pair gray cabinets with vibrant colors and textures like stained wood, quartz, or granite. However, be careful with grey — it tends to pick up the hues around it. So your grey can look like a blue, a green. For cabinetry, look at a Fossil Grey. For walls you’re talking either Subway or Pewter (Benjamin Moore)
2. Don’t Be Afraid to Opt for Bolder Choices
We love bold colors; there’s no better way to create a little drama and excitement to your kitchen than by adding a bright feature cabinet (like an island)
Or you could try adding kitchen storage that’s larger than expected for the kitchen space.
Using either of these methods is an excellent way to add depth to a room, especially if the kitchen has a low ceiling.
3. Prioritize Kitchen Storage
There’s nothing worse than a cluttered kitchen. Not only is this an eyesore, but it it’s also a health hazard. Running around with hot pots and pans with nowhere to put them down is an accident waiting to happen.
With that in mind, choose kitchen cabinets that prioritize storage. By this, we mean deep drawers and multi-tiered cabinets.
This is the perfect solution to stashing away all of your kitchen accessories.
4. Quartz Counters
For higher end kitchens, Quartz is still number one. Granite is great, but Quartz comes in countless colours so you can find a style that will suit just about any design. While Quartz used to have more of a speckled or repeating pattern (called particulates), new technology has allowed manufacturers to add realistic stone patterns like elaborate swirls or veining.
Plus, quartz is so popular (and will remain that way for a while) because it is non-porous, is practically maintenance free.
As for sinks, the stainless steel undermount will always be king, but the composites (black, grey, white) are becoming quite trendy. Be warned: from my experience, the composites stain very easily and begin to look aged quickly.
5. Sleek style
Remember the golden oak raised panel? Of course you do. Maybe that’s your kitchen now. Now, the look is trending toward whites and greys, with an eye for sleek and timeless. For cabinetry, we’re looking at a panel door, more specifically the shaker. What is a panel door?
A shaker style cabinet is characterized by a five-piece door with a recessed center panel. Some shaker cabinets are very clean and simple, while others have decorative edge detailing.
For backsplash, there’s the timeless subway tile (though they come in various colours other than the typical white).
Then instead of knobs there’s the bar pull.
