1. Open Shelving
No longer meant to just display your top culinary pieces, open shelving adds a modern look to your kitchen cabinetry. Keep things organized and neatly stacked to ensure a clean aesthetic that is both visually appealing and practical. Ideal for showcasing your everyday items, you’ll never have to worry about finding your favourite mug again!
2. Minimal Upper Cabinets
Eschewing top cabinets draws the eye up, making your kitchen feel more spacious. Having plenty of storage in lower cabinets or an island ensures that everything has its place. More wall space means opportunities to highlight great colour, texture, or art.
3. Black Cabinetry
Black is the new black! For some time, white and more neutral-tones have dominated kitchen colour palates. Black is timeless and will instantly update any kitchen. Sophisticated and sleek, opt for black to create a moody, more personal space.
4. Furniture-Style Details
Add furniture-style details to give your kitchen a polished feel. Cabinets with paneling are unexpected and create a more formal look, or update your island by adding legs to it. More refined details will make these items the focus of the room, both for functionality and its design.
5. Modern Vs. Traditional
Contrasting modern and traditional looks creates instant visual interest in a kitchen. Try modern lighting like sleek pendent lights or minimal chairs with traditional cabinetry and moldings. The contrast will create a timeless balance in your kitchen.
