21 Jun Kitchen Cabinet Trends for 2016
All home remodeling trends come and go, but when you’re talking about the most trafficked room of the house, some say the heart of the home, it’s vital to know what others are doing in case you ever decide to sell.
People think cabinets are the most expensive part of remodeling your kitchen, but they’re not. They ARE the first thing your eye is drawn to when walking into a kitchen, though. That means cabinets have a big impact on both your kitchen’s appearance and the value of your home.
We have put together a few 2016 cabinet trends.
1. Personal Cabinets
We all like to put our own personal spin on our cabinets, many homeowners are adding cabinet styles, colors and functions that fit their needs and desires. No one wants cookie cutter cabinets anymore. People want personalization and tailored designs.
2. Grey Is the New White
Gray has become the most popular of the neutral shades in cabinet design because it pairs well with other neutral paints and many stains.
3. Contrasting Light and Dark
For a great cabinet design and tile backsplash to work they need have a good contrast. A new trend for 2016 is a darker stain on the cabinets with a light backsplash tile that shadows it. A great way to make this design work is by adding Vasi Chose Ceasarstone “Blizzard” for the countertops and using a glass mosaic backsplash that combines milky white and eggplant colors with a mirrored tile.
Keeping the cabinets in a dark finish may worry some homeowners because they think it will make the kitchen look smaller when, in fact, it creates a dramatic look that works well if the backsplash is kept light or white to balance the light and dark in the space.
4. Maximize Kitchen Storage
Kitchen storage is always an issue with homeowners whose kitchens are short on space. Wi†h all the new designs available today, finding storage has become a lot easier. Swing-out units bring items into full view, and shelves organize cooking gear to keep everything neatly stacked. Pull Out Pantries make the most of the awkward space and bring the cabinet contents into full view.
For your next kitchen remodel make sure you utilize your cabinet design to its fullest potential.
