Top Kitchen Cabinet Trends of 2016
Trends come and go, but there is one room of the house where this statement doesn’t apply so readily, and that is the kitchen.
To be politically correct, kitchen cabinets haven’t changed, but other parts of the kitchen such as countertops have been evolving constantly. Nevertheless, there are kitchen cabinet trends that have stood the test of time and continue to be sought-out features for those looking to buy a home.
Subtle, Yet Clean, Designs
One important trend for cabinets is maintaining a design that doesn’t stand out and has clean lines all throughout. This is to make sure that designs are flexible in the long term.
Having clean lines allows the cabinet to go especially well with black and white kitchens to provide a clean and sleek design. Plus, they can counteract the styles of rustic, modern, and transitional kitchens.
Gray, White, And Neutral Colors
In addition to clean lines, white-colored cabinets haven’t gone away, and they have been joined with a slew of other colors like gray and neutral ones.
Neutral colors help give kitchens an overall warm feeling and give you the freedom to add bold colors anywhere else you like.
Cabinets That Are Personalized
One thing that will always precede any trend is that homeowners are increasingly fond of cabinets that have the styles, colors, and functions to fit their needs and desires.
There is no pre-set ideal kitchen cabinet design. Instead, personalized and custom designs are becoming the new standard in the kitchen. When you make it yours, you upgrade your kitchen’s overall look and feel. A kitchen, after all, is quite an intimate setting.
The Infamous Shaker Style
It’s been proven time and time again that homeowners jump when they see that a home includes Shaker style kitchen cabinets. In fact, it is one of the most highly desired features when looking for a house.
With a simple minimalistic design that embodies the Shaker philosophies, Shaker style cabinets stimulate the imagination while still exerting considerable influence on the overall kitchen décor.
It’s no surprise that square and vertical cabinets are still the most preferred design in the kitchen, but homes are starting to warm up to the idea of having horizontal cabinets.
Horizontal cabinets are wide, meaning you don’t have to stack anything. You’ll have easier access to things and make your kitchen look more distinguished and refined as well.
These trends haven’t gone away for a while, and looks like they won’t for the foreseeable future.
