If you'll be remodeling your kitchen in the coming months, it's important to take recent trends into account. Nowhere is this more important than with your cabinets, which are generally a focal point in the kitchen. Here are five kitchen cabinet trends to consider including in your design.
For the last decade or so, natural wood cabinets were all the rage. While wood is still stylish, painted cabinets are coming back into style too. Jewel tones, especially, are becoming very common. Ruby red cabinets will make a bold statement, as will deep blue ones. You could echo the jewel tone from the cabinets in other kitchen decor, like your rugs and curtains.
Shaker-style cabinets are cabinets that feature raised outside panels with a sunken center panel. They were popular in the 1980s, but lost traction for a while when flat-door cabinets became so popular. But shaker-style cabinets are popping up again in 2018. Sometimes, they are paired with glass-inlay cabinets. You can use glass-inlay cabinet doors for cabinets that house things you want to display, and solid, shaker-style cabinets for the cabinets that contain things you want to hide.
Useful Corner Cabinets
Gone are the days where Lazy Susans are basically your only choice for corner cabinets. Cabinet makers today are creating new, innovative ways to fit more into the corner cabinets in ways that make things easy to access. You can choose pull-out shelves, drawers on rotating hinges, and more.
It's becoming more and more popular to work some open shelving into your cabinet plans. You don't have to replace all of your cabinets with open shelves -- just a few of them. Perhaps you could use shelves on either side of the sink, making it easy to set things on them after you wash them. Or maybe you want to leave some open shelves by the window so you can set plants on them.
Antique Brass Hardware
When it comes to hardware, nickle and satin brass are always safe choices; but this year, antique brass is amazingly trendy. It looks nice with just about any color of cabinet finish, from wood to jewel tones. While antique brass hardware may not stay in style for too many years, that's not a major concern. You can easily replace the hardware on your cabinets without making any bigger, more expensive changes to your kitchen design.
