Then, you will want to be in the know of what is hot and what is not in the world of kitchen design so you can stay on trend and gain the best return on your remodeling investment. In our article 2019 Kitchen Trends According to Houzz, we provided the top takeaways from the site’s latest study. While it touched on popular cabinet styles and colors, we wanted to provide some more info on what is currently trending in kitchen cabinets from a variety of sources. Just as there are many style preferences, there are a range of trends. No single trend is right for every person (that’s why we have our own in-house designer on hand to help our clients select the right styles to match their preferences.) So, you will notice an assortment of style and color trends in the list.
Neutrals Still Rein
As Houzz noted, white cabinets are still the top pick, with gray coming in a close second. It seems these neutral colors will continue to be the go-to choice in the upcoming year.
Natural wood cabinets are having a moment. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about the orange oak tones of the 80’s or the knotty pine of the 70’s. Today’s wood tones are focused on subtle ash; dark, rich walnut; and pecky cypress. These options are a great way to add warmth, dimension and texture to a space.
Love neutrals but want to mix it up? Not a problem. Incorporate two tone cabinets in your kitchen design. White and gray is a popular combination or you could opt for a blend of painted and natural wood tones.
According to CountryLiving.com, painting a kitchen island with a pop of color is right on point right now. You can go with a bold color that really contrasts with surrounding neutrals or select a hue that adds just the right of amount of character and personality.
Custom and Semi-Custom
De-cluttering and personalization are driving cabinet design. Consumers are looking for adjustable shelves to fit what they want where they want. They are also desiring ways to hide necessities, like built-in pet feeding stations.
Organization and ease of use is at the forefront in cabinet design. Pull out waste and recycling along with specific drawers for pots and pans, cutlery, spices and cooking sheets are in demand.
Whether built-in or freestanding, pantry cupboards optimize kitchen design by consolidating everything into one cabinet for organization and easy access. You can store groceries just steps from prep areas while maintaining a cohesive look.
The shaker style is still hands-down the most popular cabinet choice. This door style blends minimalism and elegance and works with traditional, contemporary, farmhouse and transitional décor.
We are definitely seeing our clients following many of these trends. It will be interesting to see how these trends play out throughout 2020.
