Kitchen Cabinet Culture: What's in style for 2016!
Staying on top of the latest kitchen trends is no easy task. We live in a fast-paced era of come-and-go. People might rave about something one day and then completely disown that endorsement three weeks later. Thankfully, every so often something will come around that completely changes the way we approach renovation projects. 2015 was a great year for kitchen cabinetry. Personalization and functionality were brought into the forefront, and these ideals only look to grow further as we continue through 2016 and beyond. Below are just a few of the kitchen cabinetry design trends that have taken hold on the market this past year and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon!
- CABINETS WITH CHARACTER. The kitchen is the most used room in the house. Kitchen experts will tell you that the days of "go-to styles" for cabinetry are mostly a thing of the past. What works for one person doesn’t always translate the same for someone else. Tailoring color, style, and overall function to your very own specific needs and tastes leaves a distinctive imprint of you that will be hard for others to ignore when they visit. You will use this room every single day; having the design and function of this room catered to anyone other than yourself can be a mistake. Here at LaFata Cabinets, we have an excellent group of designers that will work with you to ensure that you get everything you want out of your kitchen.
- SIMPLE & CLEAN. These days, simplicity is key. The modern styles of today use clean lines, neutral tones, and subtle design elements to emphasize simplicity. Embracing modern design gives you plenty of flexibility moving forward. If you think you might want to make any changes to your kitchen further down the road (color, hardware, flooring, backsplashes, countertops, etc.), modern styled cabinetry allows you to incorporate complimentary accents and unique materials into your kitchen as a whole, not just your cabinets.
- KEEP IT FUNCTIONAL. Function and design are two pieces of the same puzzle. You shouldn’t be sacrificing one for the other in your kitchen renovation plans. We embrace this balance and help ensure that your kitchen looks amazing, while also emphasizing functionality. When renovating your kitchen cabinets, you should not only be considering it’s appearance, but also looking to improve upon storage options, organization, and access to every square inch of your cabinets. We have some great convenience and storage add-ons that will help to tackle organization issues head on.
Some trends come and go, but we are confident that the items listed above are here to stay for a while. Having a kitchen that reflects your personality, has a timeless beauty, and functions exactly as you need it to is never going to be out of style.
