Replacing your kitchen cabinets is a significant investment, and making the right choice for the styling and look of your kitchen is vital to enjoying it for many years. Design trends can be tricky, not only because over the time the cabinets can look dated, but it can make you remodel your kitchen again.
We are continually looking for the latest kitchen cabinet ideas to analyze the organization and its necessities, and to help you with ideas for your kitchen.
Kitchen Cabinets with Color
Forget traditional cabinets in wood tones and go with color to add personality to your kitchen. If you do so, over time, there is no need to replace them; repaint them.
Bright yellow or saturated primary colors are not the boldest color choices. Neutral colors are today’s modern-yet-classic statement:
Textured Kitchen Cabinets
Consider a fresh update with exotic striped woods; they will add texture and visual interest to your cabinetry.
High Gloss Kitchen Cabinets
They are easy to keep clean using a soft, damp rag. Your kitchen will look brighter thanks to their reflective surface, and the enhance color.
Two-Tone Kitchen Cabinets
Let’s get creative with your cabinet choices. Select one of two approaches to get the look you want:
High and low two-tone effect. On your lower cabinets, use one tone and try a different color on your upper cabinets. Achieve a fresh and lasting look using complementary colors. If you find that you’re color-challenged, use a deeper, more vibrant shade on the lower cabinets, and a much lighter shade of the same color or white for the top cabinets.
Actual two-tone. Instead of mixing and matching color cabinets, select cabinets that have a two-tone look to them. Careful with choosing cabinets in a repeating two-tone effect — they may look too busy. Our favorite, contemporary look that will withstand the test of time, involves two-tone cabinets that are one color for the actual cabinets and doors, with a second color around the exterior frame.
Rustic Modern Kitchen Cabinets
For some unique, high-design kitchen cabinet ideas, look for rustic kitchen cabinets. The juxtaposition of rustic cabinetry with the latest appliances and contemporary counters and touches creates a warm and inviting, modern kitchen space.
Whitewashed Wood Kitchen Cabinets
Whitewashed wood has been making the rounds at the top European kitchen design shows for years. The effect lightens the color of the wood grain and adds a high-end look to your wood cabinets, all while looking fresh and modern today and in ten years.
Floating Kitchen Cabinets
The contemporary effect of floating cabinets makes a kitchen space memorable. Floating lower cabinets showcases your flooring while opening the space up. The look is surprisingly functional and ergonomic since a cabinet’s storage area near the floor is often hard to access or difficult to use for those with back problems. To showcase floating cabinets, add lighting beneath them to cast a contemporary vibe and glow.
Bamboo Kitchen Cabinets
Going green is here to stay. And nothing says green like solid, low-VOC bamboo cabinets. Because bamboo proliferates, installing bamboo cabinets means less deforestation in the environment. Look for high quality, solid bamboo cabinets (instead of ply or veneer), and ask for recommendations from friends. Bamboo is harder than Oak. Your bamboo cabinets will look as good as new for years to come.
