Oak wood cabinetry is starting to creep back into the kitchen and bathroom marketplace with Cerused and driftwood finishes. In the 1970’s well into the early 90’s, they were the cabinet of choice. Usually seen in a honey spice stain, a version of a raised panel cathedral door with wild grain patterns became the mainstay in many homes at that time. After a much-needed departure, the popularity of maple, cherry and a rise of engineered wood alternatives reduced the use of oak cabinet constructions. Materials like wood veneer and painted MDF are now more common in cabinet door construction than ever. But as with other parts of the house, many homeowners are seeking connections to their past and a renewed attention to vintage, with kitchens being no different.
Red kitchen cabinet colors are bold, daring, and fearless. When you have this color in your kitchen, you will feel like nothing can stop you in achieving anything in life. Surprise your guests for a wine and cheese night, and we bet everyone will be talking about how gorgeous your kitchen cabinets are!
Green, by nature, is the most calming color in the color wheel. Emerald green, on the other hand, adds boldness to your kitchen cabinets. It encourages reflection, steadfastness, and balance. This kitchen cabinet color will give your home exquisite and precious feels, just like the gem where it got its name.
There is something innately tranquil with this shade of blue. The color of the ocean is a natural hue for the heart of the home. When choosing kitchen cabinet colors becomes a daunting task, find your peace by putting some beach vibes at the heart of your home.
Open kitchen shelves instead of wall cabinetry is becoming an even hotter trend for 2018. While you may find it hard to go without your beloved closed door wall cabinetry, open shelving has plenty of benefits. It introduces a light and airy feel offering the illusion of more space which is especially great in smaller kitchens.
Focused on functionality, today’s kitchens are being designed with large single bowl sinks or with multiple sinks. Since handwashing dishes isn’t a regular occurrence in households these days, the need for a double bowl sink is less important. In part, the farmhouse design has become extremely popular. Farmhouse sinks are popular mostly for their large deep sizes, that allows for more comfortable use, and style. If the apron front sink doesn’t fit into your design, then opt for a single bowl undermount sink in the same width as a double bowl. These sinks are perfect for larger items such as cookie sheets, stockpots, and skillet handles. For those of us that receive unexpected guests, you can quickly stow dirty dishes out of sight in these generous sink basins. In addition to the main sink, you might find an additional prep sink at the end of a run or in the kitchen island. This allows multiple people to work in the kitchen at the same time.
Many interior designers prefer blue when it comes to kitchen cabinet colors. It comes in various shades, and it works well with both white and wood tones. If you want a simple and minimal kitchen, you can never go wrong with soft blue. It’s a subtle shade that is safe, yet brings life and freshness to your kitchen cabinets.
