Kitchen Cabinet Trends in 2016

August 10, 2016

The cabinet style, wood type, color and hardware you choose for your kitchen are as personal as the clothes you wear. When it comes to your kitchen cabinets there is no right or wrong; there’s only what is right for you. At the same time, you can get great ideas for crafting the kitchen of your choice by seeing what others are doing. Here are some kitchen cabinet trends we’re seeing this year:

Full access European-style kitchen cabinets– This style of cabinet has exploded in popularity, characterized by its absence of frame, contemporary simplicity, and easy accessibility. At Osburn Cabinets & Design, we’ve been crafting frameless cabinets for over 40 years and specialize in custom designing and manufacturing this cabinet type.

Lazy Susans in kitchen cabinets– The addition of lazy susans in cabinets is nothing new, but as homeowners look more to efficiency and organization in their kitchens, the lazy susan has become more popular than ever.

Pullouts and rollouts– Decluttering is a hot trend right now, and pullouts provide options for getting organized and maintaining a clean, uncluttered look. Our expert staff of cabinet designers can help you make the most of these popular cabinet organization accessories.

Shaker-style cabinets– Characterized by their simplicity and lack of ostentation, shaker-style kitchen cabinets have become very popular. Whether you want to showcase the natural beauty of the wood or prefer the clean look of a white painted cabinet, shaker-style cabinets are a top choice. This style of cabinet works well in just about any type of kitchen. It can look traditional, modern, contemporary or retro, depending on the hardware you choose and other surrounding elements.

Open shelving– This trend allows people to artistically display dishes and keepsakes. This option does require additional cleaning, so if that isn’t you, think twice before abandoning the safety of your cabinet doors.

Painted white kitchen cabinets– White is currently the most popular color for kitchen cabinets and it is not necessarily a bright, sterile white. White offers many different hues with undertones of yellow, brown, blue or gray. Gray is still a noteworthy color for every room, but it’s become an especially popular choice for decorating the kitchen.
