The epitome of modern design is clean lines. What better way to achieve a clean, open floor plan than by doing away with kitchen cabinets and installing floating shelves, instead? Floating shelves add straight lines that pair well with any modern or contemporary decor. Most homeowners opt for this style for the upper cabinets and then have closed cabinetry doors for the bottom half of their kitchen. This allows for storage of all those unsightly appliances and utensils.
Your kitchen cabinets set the stage for the styling and look of your kitchen, as well as how well organized your kitchen necessities are. But the latest in kitchen cabinet ideas and design trends can be tricky, since certain trends look dated after several years. Replacing your kitchen cabinets are a big investment, so making the right choice is key to enjoying a beautiful up-to-date kitchen for many years. We looked at the latest kitchen cabinet ideas and analyzed function, beauty and if the trend has the potential to be fresh but timeless.
Whites, beiges and light earth tones work great in most kitchens and with almost any wall color or wallpaper, making them the top choice for those looking to repaint their kitchen cabinets. To achieve this look, paint your upper cabinets a different color than your lower cabinets. While there are millions of color combinations, some of the more popular include black on bottom and white on top, or bold colors on bottom and neutral on top. You could also contrast colors between wall cabinets and island cabinets.
The hardware will have a significant effect on the overall picture too. Using a rustic style knob may conflict with a modern theme. Transitional styled tools are mostly combined configurations either in color or form. Hardware finishes define the cabinet style by using zinc, steel, brushed aluminum, or pewter. Take time to compare them with the cabinets chosen.
