Kitchen cabinetry is not just for storage. It is an essential element to your kitchen’s style when doing a kitchen renovation.
While simple clean cabinetry will keep getting popular, some homeowners will prefer unique customised styles that will make a clear statement. Here are the top trends for kitchen cabinet design.
Open shelves look beautiful in the magazines, but not necessarily a “must-have” for most homeowners. Lets face it, you have to have a matching set of dinnerware or specialty pieces you want on display. But with good organisation and the right kind of shelves, you can create a really unique cutting edge style for your kitchen.
Multiple Colours in the Kitchen
For cabinetry, homeowners are favouring customised colours that perfectly fit their kitchen spaces. Neutral colours are currently big favourites with tones like grey, but don’t count out the darker colour.
You might have the upper cabinets finished in white while the base cabinetry is a natural wood look. An interesting kitchen cabinet design is to make the island a different colour than the perimeter cabinets. Since the island is more like a piece of furniture, it’s an easy breakaway piece that you can feel comfortable being bold.
Under Cabinet Lighting
LED lighting has had a particularly good run as homeowners change over from traditional incandescent bulbs. It provides good lighting for activities, comes in a variety of colours and the bulbs last for a really long time.
This has made it a popular option for under-cabinet lighting. Under cabinet LED lights come in different forms including pucks, strips, and bars. When fixed under the wall cabinetry, they help add light to the working area as well as improve the overall ambiance.
Kitchen Sinks and Tapware
Focused on functionality, today’s kitchens are being designed with large single bowl sinks or with multiple sinks.
Large single bowl sinks are popular mostly for their large deep sizes, that allows for more comfortable use, and style. These sinks are perfect for larger items such as cookie sheets, stockpots, and skillet handles.
We are also seeing a rise of unique and fun kitchen tap designs. Today, kitchen tapware come in all shapes, curves, and twists.
