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.
Using open shelving instead of upper cabinets can be a great way to add a dual-tone look to your kitchen. This also makes it easy to change up the color, as you can simply repaint the wall behind the shelves instead of the cabinets. It’s also a great way to showcase your favorite tableware.
Second, wood offers more flexibility in terms of design. If you like the look of the metal cabinets available, that is not necessarily important. If you want to make a decision from the widest array of options, however, wood is clearly the construction material of choice. Wood is also easier to cut along with to customize.
