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.
If you need a spark in your kitchen cabinet paint colors, why not go for yellow? Yellow is a bold color, and it can make your space bright, sunny, and happy. Imagine walking into your kitchen and having a glimpse of the golden sun. There’s never a cloudy day at your home!
We are also seeing a rise of unique and fun faucet designs. A faucet is no longer just a faucet. Though a relatively small component, a unique faucet can add a pop of style or color to your kitchen. Today, faucets come in all shapes, curves, and twists. Pot filler faucets are mounted on the wall with a long arm that can extend over cooktop to fill large pots. Others come with unique spray mechanisms while others are embedded with sensors to get water flowing automatically. You can even expect to see designs that look like they came straight from your favorite restaurant.
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.
Today, above anything else, there is a rising movement towards a streamlined look that focuses on simplicity and minimalism. Here and there however, you will find some wild and bold options popping up. 2018 will see both styles get their fair share of love from homeowners. While simple clean cabinetry will keep getting popular, some homeowners will prefer unique customized styles that will make a clear statement.
