I am hearing a lot of buzz about shaker cabinets as being one of the top trends in kitchen design for 2022. It is no doubt that this classic look is gaining in popularity because they can be used in traditional homes or even alongside more contemporary themed elements. These grey kitchen cabinets are a fantastic example of how to bring this look into your home, whatever the existing decor theme. The shaker style brings a traditional foundation to any space, but we love how the grey finish that they chose takes the design into the 21st century. Even better they added a huge multipurpose island in a slightly contrasting shade of grey. I love utilizing unexpected techniques like this that elevate your typical kitchen cabinet ideas. They finished off the design perfectly with gorgeous marble countertops, contemporary styles chrome pendant lights and eclectic bar stools. Despite the use of the shaker cabinets, the whole space has a very fresh and modern feel.
If you are looking to bring bold contemporary design to your home, you have to consider black kitchen cabinets. This room that we recently completed is a fantastic example of how to use this decor trend correctly. You have to be careful incorporating such a jarring color like black because it can quickly overwhelm a space and make it seem very small and cave-like. It certainly is the perfect shade for modern kitchen cabinets, but you have to keep a few things in mind if you are going to experiment with this trend. First and foremost, only use a dark black shade in one element. If you are adding black kitchen cabinets, then select a light monochromatic paint palette, countertops and flooring like in this space. This technique will prevent the space from getting too dark and one note, but rather will add the perfect amount of contrast to keep the look interesting. Finally, keep the decor and appliances very simple when incorporating these kitchen cabinet ideas. This is one of those looks that can become too much very quickly, so you have to know when to stop.
I think this glazed French-style cabinetry fit that theme perfectly. We selected a lovely grey blue shade and accented it with mirrored panels in the top row and on the refrigerator doors. This makes the space seem larger by reflecting the light. We carried this design even further by painting and glazing the trim around the room in the same shade as the kitchen cabinet colors. This is our latest kitchen remodel and we think the space turned out fantastic. Our client wanted us to incorporate kitchen cabinet ideas that gave the look of opulent elegance. Because the overall look is so bold, I think this decision helped to make the whole thing more cohesive. Once we installed the kitchen cupboards the rest just flowed. We knew we had to use marble countertops and a coordinating herringbone mosaic backsplash to continue the luxe feel. The final touches were these gorgeous crystal chandeliers and monogrammed rangehood. The finished design was certainly an over the top luxurious look, but our client absolutely loved it.
Before we embarked on a recent home remodel we were in dire need of kitchen cabinet ideas. We found a house in a great location of town, but it was extremely outdated and run down. As you can see in this before photo, we had horrible cheap kitchen cabinets, linoleum countertops and an efficient layout. We knew we could do a lot with the space, it was just a matter of tearing everything out and starting fresh. The first thing we did was get rid of the old stuff. Since it is a small space, we decided to go with a simple white kitchen design complete with a neutral paint palette and simple cabinets. To style it up a bit we splurged on beautiful granite countertops and stainless steal appliances. We decided to take advantage of the peninsula bar with extra seating and kept that in there. We just extended it to make it more useful. We carried the same color scheme as in our kitchen design into the adjoining living room in order to keep the space cohesive and feeling as large as possible. We love the finished product and cant wait to tackle more rooms in the house.
The latest trend in kitchen countertops for 2022 is using these gorgeous butcher block materials. It is no surprise, because this unique countertop option is incredibly versatile and, as such, can be incorporated into any style decor from the very modern to your most traditional look. When you hear butcher block you typically picture a polished yellow toned wood, typically paired with white kitchen cabinets. Today, you can purchase it in a wide variety of colors, finishes and wood types. My favorite way to use this type of countertop is in a very dark mahogany shade paired with white cabinets and marble accents like in this space. It gives an upscale look and can actually be a fraction of the price of other solid surface options. If you prefer more contemporary kitchen cabinet ideas, there are butcher block varieties that can be incorporated into that style as well. Sleek lines with heavy grain is the perfect accent to more modern decor, and provides a very unique and unexpected accent. Butcher block is definitely one of those finishes that becomes the focal point of a space.
This is one of the most stunning use of kitchen island cabinets that I have ever seen. I have been on the look out for design inspiration for our kitchen remodel. I tend to gravitate to bold contemporary decor schemes and very edgy design elements. So many of the kitchen cabinet ideas I have been browsing are way too traditional for my personal design tastes. This kitchen, on the other hand, has it all. I have never seen anything like the wood and acrylic cabinet design. I love how the kitchen cabinet doors have a sleek no-frills structure, and are finished in what almost looks like a clouded glass material. These paired with the stainless steel and butcher block countertops is absolutely stunning. Furthermore, the futuristic range and hood looks like something out of a space movie, certainly unlike anything I have ever seen before. The entire look is offset by the gorgeous wide plank wood floors that give almost a traditional feeling. I want to incorporate each and every element in my new design, from the kitchen island cabinets to the countertops and everything in between.
