Transitional styling is the “Goldilocks” zone of home décor. It’s the one true constant that can travel throughout all styles. Dabble in contemporary elements without straying too far from the warmth of traditional design. It can be the combination of natural stone-look tiles with gleaming white walls and 50’s style sofas or a match between wood wainscoting and modern leather and glass furniture. When it comes to kitchen cabinetry, transitional styling isn’t new, It’s become the mainstay. You will find a combination of differing degrees within this style from the subtle to the dramatic.
To design the perfect kitchen, it is important to understand what is imperative to you and then incorporate the latest trends around that. Here are the 9 hottest trends that will dominate kitchen cabinetry design in 2018.
Homeowners are no longer satisfied with cookie-cutter kitchen designs. They want something unique that builds character and personality or provides a bold statement. Color is one of the most effective ways to take notice. A different color of paint on your cabinets can make all the difference and separate you from the pack. Manufacturing companies are taking notice too. Even though they provide the latest and greatest finish colors, they are still appealing to the masses. So, they have teamed up with paint companies to provide a limitless array of color for you to be inspired by.
With hundreds (even thousands) of lovely paint colors to select from, no trip to the hardware store would be complete without a bit of buyer’s hesitation. Picking the proper shades for a room in your home can be a strenuous and baffling errand — particularly if you’re picking something for your kitchen cabinets. What if you go through all those steps to paint your cabinets and you end up despising the color? What if you wished you had picked a more white than a cream white? They say you can always repaint, but ‘that’s a lot of work! Save yourself the inconvenience and read this before you go shopping for your next project.
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!
LED lighting has had a particularly good run as homeowners change over from traditional incandescent bulbs. It provides good lighting for activities, comes in a variety of colors and the bulbs last for a really long time. This has made it a popular option for under-cabinet lighting. Under cabinet LED lights come in different forms including pucks, strips, and bars. When fixed under the wall cabinetry, they help add light to the working area as well as improve the overall ambiance. LED is not the only type of lighting that can be fixed under the cabinet. You could opt for fluorescent fixtures, which are almost as energy efficient as LED and produce minimal heat. Xenon lights give off some heat but they can be dimmed and have an attractive warm glow. You could also go with halogen lights, but this is not always a good idea. They give off too much heat which could affect foods or drinks you have stored inside the cabinet.
