New Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

Kitchen islands are the star of most kitchen remodels. Nearly two-thirds of home remodels include a kitchen designed with an island as the main feature. The two most popular choices of colors for kitchen islands are shades of gray and blue. Many of them use the island’s contrasting colors to provide a pop of color to white kitchens.

How Do I Choose Kitchen Cabinets?

Selecting kitchen cabinets can feel like a daunting task, but the process allows for customization of the space. Focus on what design style you want your kitchen layout to reflect: do you want a contemporary kitchen or a traditional kitchen?

Next, select your cabinet material. If you are considering a stained finish, Cherry and Maple have lovely grain lines and a natural luster. If you want a dramatic, rustic look, Character Cherry, Character Maple, and Hickory have unique characteristics and grain patterns that make them ideal. Maple and MDF are excellent choices for today's top trending white, gray, and blue painted cabinet finishes.

Finally, consider appliances: stainless steel appliances are extremely popular in today’s trends, with smaller stainless steel appliances like microwaves, dishwashers, and beverage coolers being housed in kitchen islands. However, don’t fret if your small kitchen cannot accommodate an island and the three feet of clearance space required around them. Instead, ask your local Wellborn Dealer about the wide variety of wall appliance cabinets available.

Oak Cabinets – Oak is one of the most durable materials for cabinets. Wood cabinets made of Oak are a good fit for traditional and farmhouse-style kitchens.

Hickory Cabinets – Hickory has distinctive contrasting colors from light to dark and strong wood grain characteristics. Hickory by nature is heavy, hard, strong, and stiff - producing durable cabinetry.

Character Cherry and Character Maple Cabinets – Cabinetry made from Character Cherry or Maple has unique characteristics brought out by randomly occurring, variously sized knots, mineral or gum streaks, and pitch or bark pockets. The amount of streaks and knots will vary from each piece of wood, making each door different and the kitchen unique.

MDF Cabinets - It is a high grade, composite material made of wood veneer and is much denser than normal particle board. This is a durable and tough type of wood product commonly used in the construction industry.

What Are The Different Cabinet Styles?

Cabinetry design styles are unique to every homeowner. Some prefer the clean and modern lines of a modern kitchen design, while others may prefer the rugged, traditional look of a farmhouse design. While every design style can be customized to each homeowner, below are some guidelines for trending design styles:

Contemporary kitchen cabinet designs characteristically contain “open floor plans” and lead into other rooms. Clean lines and ample storage space locations allow for the space to remain clutter-free. Contemporary designs often combine natural stylized finishes with modern materials, such as a decorative laminate veneer mimicking wood grain.

Country farmhouse cabinet designs have become increasingly popular in the last 15 years. The farmhouse design combines the comforting nature of traditional designs with the open spaces of contemporary designs. Popular cabinet door finishes include light or natural stains and tones of white and light grays.

Transitional room design styles offer the best of both worlds by combining a blend of comforting traditional design and the clean lines of a contemporary design. This style usually contains neutral colors; such as whites, grays, beiges, blue tones, shaker style cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances.

Traditional room designs are characterized by ornate designs with a variety of finishes and rich colors. Arched doors and elaborate hardware help solidify this kitchen design.

What Is A Good Color For Kitchen Cabinets?

By far, the most trending kitchen cabinet color is white. White cabinets offer a blank canvas for you to create your dream design. Colored cabinets, those which are painted or stained darker-toned finishes like Onyx or Drift, are typically used as focal points in a kitchen design. Finishing kitchen cabinets in a dark tone can make a small kitchen feel dark and cramped.
