Kitchen Cabinet Trends, Don’t get left behind!

Stainless steel appliances always receive so much admiration in a kitchen design, but what about your kitchen cabinets? You know the things that hold your food, dishes, and are equally as important as anything else in the kitchen. They are beginning to get the attention they deserve. The moment you change up your kitchen cabinets, you can completely change the kitchen’s personality or vibe. It really is that simple. Below are a rundown of six trends that are happening to kitchen cabinets today.


Move over, white cabinets, there are exciting, new hues in town. Color is starting to come back in style for your kitchen. Blues tend to dominate — especially navy — but all colors are considered fair game. That would include jewel tones like sapphire and emerald, gray and black, which looks particularly good if you’ve got one of the new black faucets. Why so much interest in color? It lets you personalize the room and gives it an edge. Who doesn’t want a little bit of color to liven things up in the kitchen? After all, it is the heart and soul of the house.


No need to cram anything into a drawer that it too narrow anymore. Why? Because storage spaces are getting bigger. Deeper drawers are popular, particularly wide drawers that provide a cleaner visual throughout the space.


For homeowners, who have successfully pared down their collection of dishes, cook-ware and other essentials, a kitchen with less cabinets means a more spacious, open look. Adopting this trend is also a way to add windows or make them larger. If you can’t bear to give up such valuable cabinet real estate, though, consider another popular option: open shelving, which provides storage but with an open, airy feeling. Now, if you really don’t want to give away your upper cabinets, you don’t have to! Ultimately, the decision is all yours and if you think your kitchen look is awesome with the upper cabinets, then by all means, leave them!


The most common kitchen cabinet door has a frame and raised panel, which give the door dimension. By contrast, a flat-front door (also called a slab door) is smooth and even, which creates a more modern look.


Upper and lower cabinets in two different finishes is a trend that Pierce expects to continue for some time. When you broaden the palette to include multiple finishes, you also increase the overall flexibility of the rest of the finishes within that space.


Mesh inserts in cabinet doors serve the same purpose as glass but in a more mysterious way since you can’t see as clearly inside. Metal or wire mesh fronts work well in both traditional and contemporary kitchens but should be used judiciously — a mix of mesh, glass, closed and open shelving will create a balanced look that’s easy on the eye.
