Top Trends Kitchen Cabinet Designs For 2018

One of the first things people decide when building a new home or going through a home renovation is the style of cabinets they will use in their kitchen. Cabinets are not only useful for storage and organization, but they are the major part of the kitchen, and set the tone for the whole room. If you’re planning on getting some new cabinets, here are some trends you should consider.


Homeowners and renovators are always looking to add a little luxury. While in the past hardwood was limited to only the wealthy, Nowadays they are available to almost everyone. They cost less than they used to, but still offer the durability and beauty that wood has been known for. There are many styles and colors to choose from, and wood can be designed to be modern or traditional.

Functionality With Style

Obviously, kitchen cabinets are not meant to just be aesthetically pleasing. They serve a purpose. However, you don’t need to sacrifice style for functionality. There are many features you can have included with your cabinets that increase the organizational aspects but still have visual appeal. This includes things like deeper drawers, pull out racks, vertical storage, and drawer bins.

Open Concept

Open concept seems to be all the rage these days. Kitchen cabinets play a big part in this. If you open your kitchen up to the living and dining rooms, you still need storage space and you still need some type of separation between them. Using cabinets creatively can create that feeling of separate spaces, while still maintaining the open feel.

Variety Is The Spice Of Life

Traditionally, kitchen cabinets have had a uniformity of style. That doesn’t have to be the case anymore. There’s a trend towards mixing and matching styles and colors to create a unique and appealing space. You can make interesting choices, like having one piece, such as a linen closet door, differ in design and color to add some pop to the space. Using bold colors can draw the eye to a certain door and create an appealing accent piece.

Ultimately, what kind of cabinets you choose is completely up to you. However, if you want to keep up with the trends, consider some of these options.
