By implementing these ideas in your own home, we believe you can create a more stylish and functional room design. When you’re looking into fall renovation ideas for your home, consider the following major kitchen cabinet trends of 2014:
Specialty Cabinetry Designs
Homeowners are looking for ways to make cooking easy and keep their kitchens organized—and manufacturers are responding to the growing demand. Specialty cabinetry designs can provide unique ways to store everything you need to cook and clean, while also enhancing the aesthetic of your kitchen and eliminating the clutter. Popular options include:
- Built-in spice racks
- Roll-out trays
- Inserts for hanging pots and pans
- Multi-layered pullouts
- Drawers with built-in dividers for silverware
- And more
Distressed Cabinetry Finishes
Popular kitchen cabinet trends in 2014 focus on more than just making an easier cooking and cleaning experience—they also emphasize the aesthetic of your space with new finish choices. Homeowners are leaning towards aged and distressed finishes that complement floors and countertops but aren’t an exact match. Not only can this help you create a rustic style kitchen, but distressed finishes tend to be longer lasting and more durable than other finishes.
Colorful Kitchen Cabinets
Those who aren’t opting for distressed finishes and the rustic kitchen design are instead going for color—and lots of it! Painted cabinetry is an especially popular kitchen cabinet trend in 2014 as a way to lighten up your space and create a brighter ambiance. In particular, we are seeing homeowners paint their cabinets in two different colors, using one color for the trim or painting the cabinets on the bottom a slightly darker shade than those on the top.
If you prefer to use one solid color to paint your cabinets, consider that pastels can be a good choice to complement dark floors while warmer colors can make your kitchen feel more inviting.
