Of the many features and design elements of your kitchen, your cabinetry is one of the most essential elements. It’s the cabinetry that really dictates the flow of a kitchen space, making it perhaps the main focal point of any kitchen remodel.
Here are just a few of the biggest trends we saw in custom built cabinets in Las Vegas, NV in 2019, many of which we expect to continue to be popular as we head into the new year.
Open shelving arrangements
Open shelving has become popular once again in many kitchens, though it can be a bit challenging to make it an eye-appealing feature. You’ll need to make sure you maintain good organization on your shelving, and that the items you put in the shelving are also appealing to the eye. One of the reasons why so many people prefer closed shelving and cabinetry is because it makes it easier to keep jumbled messes out of the way—open shelving requires a lot more thought and maintenance to keep it looking good, because every individual item affects the aesthetic.
However, when done well, open shelving makes a kitchen feel much more spacious and airy. It is also highly efficient, as you’re able to grab what you need without having to open any doors. You can keep frequently-used items out in the open.
Wood cabinetry and flooring is starting to make a comeback in the kitchen. From the 1970s through the 1990s, oak cabinetry was the most popular, though in many cases it was stained with a honey color that has since become an object of scorn among many homeowners and interior designers.
Today’s oak cabinetry and flooring features more neutral, natural colors and textures to provide a more luxurious and timeless feeling than the “honey oak” of past decades. There’s also the benefit of oak being a solid wood that lasts a long time and increases the value of your home.
Greater color customization
More people are taking the time to customize every element of their kitchen designs, including the colors that are used on their cabinetry. Different colors on the cabinets can help create more striking kitchen designs. Neutral colors are popular, with grays, greens, navy blues and even black becoming quite prevalent, though a classic white color will always have its place in kitchen designs. The way color is used for accent pieces throughout the kitchen also continues to evolve.
Clean, simple designs
Extremely ornate cabinetry work has become a thing of the past. Today’s cabinetry design tends to focus on minimalism and a very clean, smooth aesthetic. The profiles have smooth edges and clean lines, and the handles are often low-profile, designed to draw as little attention as possible so as not to clutter up the feeling of the room.
These are just a few examples of some of the biggest current trends in kitchen design and custom built cabinets in Las Vegas, NV. For more tips to consider for your kitchen remodel, contact Authentic Custom Cabinetry today.
