Kitchen cabinet design: what’s trending

When it comes to picking out kitchen cabinets it’s easy to get lost in all of the design options currently available. Cabinets, paint colors, and flooring are essentials when beginning to map out your new kitchen upgrade. Here’s a guide to the trendiest ideas when it comes to cabinets this year.

Grey instead of all white

All white is always in style, but go for something a little bit different this year to add an in style cabinet design that will further polish your kitchen upgrade. There are many shades of grey available (more than 50) that will compliment just about any kitchen layout. Look for sleek hardware-less cabinets to accent your modern kitchen or more rustic painted cabinets for a homier feel. The neutral ability of grey makes it perfect for essentials in any room, but this year especially for kitchen cabinets.

Stainless steel and metal

Metal is easy to clean, easy to install, and on trend design wise this year! Pick out stainless steel cabinets for a professional kitchen look or a patterned metal for a lower key upgrade. This option is great for budget conscious projects and leaves room for essentials, like the gorgeous quartz countertops, to be showcased. If you are in the market for budget friendly, attractive cabinets add metal to your list of materials to scope out.

Hidden appliances

Sleek, effortless design is on the trend list this year. Clean architectural lines and modern hardware are great ways to add to your kitchen upgrade, but if you want to take it to the next level add in hidden appliances! When installing your new cabinets hide essentials like your refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave in them. This clutter free look will keep your kitchen sleek and clean looking while also being functional.


Add wooden cabinets to your upgrade list for a warm feel and cottage or farm house look. You can find these for a reasonable rate at many of the big box stores, or find a reclaimed design to really add character to your new kitchen. Try solid wood or even styles with wood veneers. There are plenty of sizes and panel designs to choose from, from simple to more ornate. Wood comes in many natural tones, and can be painted any color. Be sure to take care of your wood cabinets by keeping them clean and free of standing liquids so that they last longer and stay in great condition.
