Kitchen design trends are nothing new, but we’re particularly excited about what’s happening right now. The two-toned kitchen cabinet design trend is here and it looks like it will be around for quite a while. Use the ideas in this post as your design inspiration to create a look that matches your personal tastes. With just a few small tweaks, you can create an on-trend look you’ll love for years to come.
Skipping the upper kitchen cabinets entirely may seem a bit risky to some, but by doing so you can really achieve quite the open, modern space. Take a look at the kitchen in the image below — its sleek black and white styling, sans upper cabinets, is very appealing. In place of upper cabinetry, you can add an amazing back splash that travels up to the ceiling, or you have room for an ultra-modern stainless steel hood over the stove.
If you’re planning on mixing and matching in this way, remember that design inspiration is the key to success. Use your intended design style as a starting point and then use sites like Freshome to determine which materials are most commonly used together in that aesthetic. That way, you can be sure that your final product will exceed expectations.
Let's take a look at a few things you can do to whip that pantry–cabinet back into a usable space where everything is visible, accessible, and organized. This may not be for the faint of heart but it needs to be done along with it will take a bit of time. First thing is to completely empty the pantry. Yes, COMPLETELY! How can you expect to clean also arrange if it is not completely empty? Did Picasso begin painting with an already painted on canvas? Okay, I digress but you know what I am talking about. This is also a good time to discard items that are bad or broken.
One thing to consider also is: Do you really need to have all of this right here in this pantry? Remove items that are rarely used. Christmas holiday platters, cookie cutters, and decorations don't need to be in your way all year. Store those items away from your kitchen and bring them back in when you use them before the holidays. There are so many simple solutions to clearing the clutter with making your life less stressful. Your kitchen pantry–cabinet is a great place to start.
