Have you thought about updating the cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom recently? If so, you should be aware of 4 current trends in cabinetry before purchasing new cabinets. These trends include floating cabinets, color flair, cabinets up to the ceiling and, believe it or not, no cabinets at all. We break down each of these trends in the paragraphs below. Once you learn about them and are in the know, you will have a better idea of what you want to install in your home.
1. Floating Cabinets
Floating cabinets are a great way to elevate your cabinet game. They mount directly to the wall and, as their name indicates, appear as if they are hovering above the ground. Floating cabinets provide a clean, modern look to bathrooms and save much-needed space. They can even be designed as vanity pieces that include one or two sinks, adding an extra degree of sleekness.
Since floating cabinets hang about 1 foot above the ground in most cases, you can vacuum or mop the floor underneath with ease. The elevation also allows you to smoothly retrieve any items that fall to the ground below and safeguards your cabinets if flooding occurs. You never want to walk into a bathroom full of water, whether from a storm event or plumbing issue. But if you do, floating cabinets are far more likely to avoid damage than their gravity-bound peers.
It is incredibly important that floating cabinets are installed properly to ensure maximum safety and functionality.
2. Color Flair
Maybe you've always had one uniform cabinet color. White, brown, or wood-stained perhaps? Consistent, neutral colors have long defined cabinetry, but change is on the horizon. Adding a flair of color to your bathroom or kitchen cabinets infuses the space with life and enhances its visual appeal.
You can start with a moderate color splash by painting one feature, such as your island or bar, or dive into the trend headfirst by brightening all of the lower cabinets in your kitchen. Fortune favors the bold, right? If you decide to take the color plunge, keep in mind that black and blue are very popular options right now.
3. Cabinets up to the Ceiling
Standard size cabinets are becoming a thing of the past. Previously, almost all cabinets were 30 inches tall and relied on soffits to fill space between the top of the cabinets and the ceiling. Cabinets of this size were very practical and made it easy to access all of the items they stored without straining to reach them.
Now, cabinets that extend up to the ceiling are becoming more and more common. Tall cabinets can measure up to 42 inches high and maximize the storage space in your kitchen. If you choose to join this trend, consider placing less frequently used items like serving platters and seasonal kitchenware in your new, tall cabinets. That way you won't have to get to them too often.
4. No Cabinets
Wait, one of the 4 trends in cabinetry is no cabinets? Yes, you read that correctly. People are opting to use open shelving concepts or no shelves at all to create a clean, modern look in their kitchen. For example, a kitchen island can be a wooden table that is used for eating and food prep rather than including storage space below. A no cabinet or open shelving approach allows you to find what are looking for easily and makes the kitchen look bigger, as long as you minimize clutter.
