Kitchen Cabinet Trends

Usually what prompts homeowners to take the plunge and redo the kitchen is the worn out countertops or dated cabinets! When it’s time to pick out new cabinets for your kitchen, it’s time to get in touch with the experts at the Poulin Design Center in Albuquerque. Here are some tips on the latest kitchen cabinet trends to help you get started on your search for the perfect kitchen cabinets!

White Cabinets

Classic white cabinets will give your kitchen a fresh, clean look and will make your kitchen feel bright and welcoming. Consider adding an antique finish to your off-white cabinets; this is a popular trend right now to give your kitchen a unique, shabby-chic, comfortable style.  White cabinets pair nicely with dark countertops or a darker backsplash.  With the flooring, you can choose bright hardwood flooring or beautiful natural stone as well.

Cherry Cabinets

The warm tone of cherry wood suits a kitchen perfectly. You can choose the finish to determine if you want your cabinets to have a hint of red, or a bold, deep red hue.  Cherry pairs beautifully with granite or tile countertops. In terms of flooring, you’ll want to find a hardwood species that contrasts enough from the cabinets. Or, go for a brighter tile, stone, or luxury vinyl option.

Dark Espresso

If you’re looking for the clean, sleek look in your kitchen, consider adding in cabinets with a dark espresso finish. The natural earth tone of dark, rich brown is the perfect addition to a kitchen design.  A popular trend with dark wood finishes is to add a pop of color with green or blue wall paint. With your flooring options, brushed, rectangular tiles look great with dark cabinets.  Or keep with the natural tone and install marmoleum, or a distressed wood look.

Glass or Exposed Cabinets

A classic way to decorate your kitchen is with the various dishes and utensils you use on display!  A great way to make your kitchen feel larger and more open is to have exposed cabinets in all or part of your kitchen.  Often homeowners will choose one cabinet or set of cabinets to leave exposed.  This is a great place to put cookbooks on display, large decorative bowls, or even artwork.
