4 Kitchen Cabinet Trends for 2016
September 20, 2016
Home remodeling trends traverse the decades as styles from our parents decades and beyond come and go. The wonderful thing about these passing trends year to year is that with better quality materials and techniques those retro styles just evolve and get better, like a fine wine over time. We think these 4 Kitchen cabinet trends are some of the best that 2016 has to offer and hope you’ll keep an eye out for or even consider them for your own Maryland kitchen remodel.
1. Shaker Cabinets
Shaker style cabinets haven’t really lost their popularity and seem to have stood the test of time since the 1800’s. At first glance, these cabinets can seem very plain and boring, but with new woods and techniques these shaker style cabinets have taken on new life and now boast a modern look that would reinvent any kitchen space.
2. Muted Color Pallets
We are seeing many new kitchen remodels choose to use clean lines as a theme. For that, muted and neutral colors compliment the best. Many homeowners are choosing these color themes and muted tones to provide a sense of warmth, allowing for more intense pops of color in home accessories.
3. Small Space Functionality
Gone are the days when you’d find a false front drawer in a kitchen that didn’t open. We are opting instead to make every inch of the kitchen functional in some way and make use of small spaces. There are now options to add to the kitchen cabinets that include custom sized drawers and hidden knife blocks inside cabinetry.
We can’t remember the last time we broke out our mother’s cookbook. In fact, with the new “tasty” videos that are sprawling social media and Pinterest Recipe boards scrolling miles long- why would we even need a cook book anymore? Because of the prevalent use of high tech equipment in the Kitchen we are now seeing innovative kitchen accessories that make using a tablet or phone a breeze in the Kitchen.
Most homeowners in 2016 are searching for a harmony of both aesthetics and functionality. The trends that come and go will continue to pass, but if they can provide beauty and function you’ll expect them to stick around longer than others.
