As we start out the new year that means new kitchens for many home owners. As the kitchen quickly becomes the highlight of the home in the interior design world, there are many cabinet styles to consider when designing a modern kitchen. Below is list of the top 5 styles that are hot this year and sure to stick around for many years to come. They are simple yet sophisticated and I am loving the direction that kitchen design is heading.
- The Clean-Lined Cabinet
Clean-lined cabinets are a must these days. They are simple and classy giving a clean and minimal look. Gone are the days of finished woods and ornate cabinets. This clean style is Shaker a 200 year old design style that is making a big comeback in modern homes. Paired with simple clean hardware they are a lovely upgrade to any kitchen.
2. Colored Cabinets
Colored cabinets are being widely used in new kitchens and for good reason…they are stunning! Having colored cabinets especially paired with neutral countertops, backsplash, and paints gives a whole new depth to the kitchen. Grays and deep blues are popular choices along with greens and black. I adore this uplifting blue cabinet color from Lowes below.
Driftwood is such a lovely and elegant look to a more natural styled kitchen. Clean and minimal is in and these cabinets are a beautiful addition to any kitchen. Paired with white countertops and stainless steel they would be a sophisticated and charming look to a modern home.
The modern wood of the design world today is maple. This simple clean-lined wood adds a delicate and natural touch. A light maple adds warmth and brightness to a kitchen and goes great with dark or light countertops.
5. No Cabinets
As the open floor plan continues to dominate the design world, and with good reason, it is becoming more and more desirable to have an open and airy kitchen. This means saying goodbye to upper cabinets and replacing them with open shelves. This makes the space feel larger and can be a big help in row and galley kitchens. It also fits into the contemporary need for clean lines. With so many brands today making lovely and colorful dinnerware and appliances it gives people a chance to display their decorative kitchen ware.
