Kitchen cabinetry has not been spared the modernization wave that has influenced home décor in recent years. One of the most obvious impacts has been the adoption of clean aesthetics in cabinetry constructions. This minimalism trend is likely to continue into 2019 and beyond. Modern cabinets are free of the ornate design work often found in traditional cabinet door styles. They feature a recessed panel door with smooth edge profiles and simple clean lines offering only the simplest of design elements. Even the handles themselves come in low profile styles, not demanding too much attention. Essentially, all the clutter has been pared down to the bare minimum. This type of cabinetry works perfectly with a modern styled kitchen, complementing other components like the countertop and the backsplash.
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.
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!
The appeal? Neutral color, dimension & texture, and newfound soft luxury that can be layered into any space creating a blended balance. Oak cabinetry is versatile in its look from seaside or French cottage, clean modern simplicity or a common rustic look. Often creating a connection to the natural element. This is why oak, despite its stigma with the past, is becoming more popular option in cabinetry construction. Manufacturers are crafting a variety of interesting door styles–from recessed panels to flat slabs with an inset detail and finishes using oak. You can use oak in its natural color or opt to give it a coat of paint. Shades of black, blue, & grey seem to be a rising favorite for homeowners.
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.
Pastel makes light gray pop! You can find sophisticated gray to fit any taste, and it’s one of the easiest and safest way to style. Add your favorite hue of pastel, and you’re good to go! This kitchen cabinet color scheme is a favorite for those who want to stay minimal, yet want a pop of color on their kitchen.
