If you’re like most homeowners, your kitchen is the heart of your home. It may not be where everyone enters, but it tends to be where everyone gathers.  

Additionally, it’s where you spend many hours every week preparing meals for you and your family, socializing, and enjoying quality time with the ones you love. At Gulfstream Homes, kitchen remodels are one of our most popular requests. Of course, cabinetry is an important consideration during any kitchen remodel.  

5 Kitchen Cabinet Trends to Consider During Your Next Kitchen Remodel 

Perhaps you’re looking to start from scratch and design custom cabinetry from square one. Or maybe you simply want to refresh and update what you already have. Whatever kind of remodel you’re considering, these current kitchen cabinet trends will help give your kitchen a fresher and more updated feel.  

1. Creating Contrast with Dark-Colored Cabinets 

You’ve heard the saying “opposites attract.” Although this usually refers to people, it applies just as well to kitchen design. If your kitchen features lots of light colors and open space, consider adding some contrast with dark-colored cabinets. Dark wood grain patterns or solid colors can create a more relaxed and comfortable feel.  

2. Adding Visual Interest by Mixing Cabinet Colors 

Kitchen cabinets are traditionally a single color or pattern, but many homeowners are bucking tradition and adding visual interest by mixing cabinet colors. One popular method involves choosing different colors for each area of your kitchen.  

For example, you may choose to install white wall cabinets and light green base cabinets. Alternatively, you can add visual interest with two-toned cabinets.  

3. Making Cabinets a Focal Point with Bold Colors  

Many kitchens lack a strong focal point that commands attention as soon as you enter them. There are plenty of ways to create a focal point for your kitchen, but one of the easiest is to make the cabinets pop. Choose a bold — not necessarily bright — color to make your cabinets the star of the show.  

4. Embracing Natural Finishes 

If you already have a very busy kitchen or you prioritize a more peaceful feel or natural look, natural finishes are the way to go. Wood grain finishes provide a simple yet classy and cozy feel that many homeowners crave.  

Light-colored wood offers a brighter and more modern feel. Alternatively, if you’re seeking a rustic charm or simply a warmer space, you might go with a nice darker wood.  

5. Adding a Touch of Elegance with Metal Accents 

For a more sophisticated and elevated feel, swap out your regular cabinet hardware for metal finishes, such as: 

  • Gold 
  • Silver 
  • Rose gold
  • Brass
  • Bronze
  • Brushed nickel
  • Copper

Whether you’re trying for a sleek and minimalist feel, industrial chic, or even a more bohemian look, these metal accents stand out in any kitchen.
