Trends in Cabinetry

Cabinetry is always changing. Whether it’s style and finish, overall design and functionality or even material, cabinet trends change constantly. That’s why it’s important to choose trends you know fit your personal decorating style and lifestyle.

Right now a few trends are floating around for cabinetry. Here are a few

1) Floating Shelves

Floating Shelves seem to have become extremely popular. A floating shelf is just what it sounds like. It’s a shelf with no visible support or surrounding cabinetry.

Here are more creative ways to use floating shelves.

2) A Design for Wine

Wine has never really been in or out of fashion, but if wine were ever trending, it’s now. Wine is one of the top things bought online at the moment. It’s also hitting the kitchen design industry pretty hard. Whether you want to add a bar space to your home or a space for wine in your kitchen cabinetry, designing around the love of wine is trendy right now.

Some spaces include slots for wine glasses and bottles. Some include a space for a particular wine fridge. In a lot of cases, when designing cabinetry for a new kitchen or a remodel, keep your wine in mind!

3) Hard Working Cabinets

Condensing cabinets into one wall, making them hold as much as functionally as possible is a huge trend right now. It probably spilled over from the tiny house fad. Those small spaces need cabinetry that works hard to keep spaces uncluttered.

Even if it’s not a singular wall of cabinets, having efficient cabinet spaces is hot. Built-in spice racks and lazy susans are just the beginning. Pull-out trays, customized drawers, bread boxes, cookie sheet slots, etc. are all on the rise. The limit to what you can do with your cabinet space seems to be as big as your mind can make it. (BHG)
