Kitchen cabinets can make or break a kitchen. If the cabinets are outdated then the entire kitchen is outdated as well. There are a number of way to make your kitchen cabinets trendy while also being upscale. Here are some of the common ideas:
Exotic Wood Veneers
People use wood veneers to generate interest in their cabinets because it displays the wood’s natural grain. Veneers have been around for a while now, but there are so many different types of wood to choose from that the possibilities are nearly endless. They can come in shades of tan, light grey, warm red, rich chestnut, and many more. The wood grain can also go in a vertical or horizontal direction. Veneers can be used in a variety of ways, from full cabinet to treatments to accent pieces.
White kitchens may be popular forever, but the most recent trend is to use a bright white paint on the kitchen cabinets. The bright white combined with clean lines throughout the kitchen works very well with a modern style, traditional style, or contemporary style kitchen.
A milk-paint finish is a hand painted style that is applied in two layers. First the base, then the topcoat making it have a tone-on-tone look. This is becoming increasingly popular, and it is easier to touch up yourself since it already has that hand painted look.
Mixing Light and Dark
This is generally done with two-tone cabinets or an accent island. For two-tone cabinets, the below-the-counter section of cabinets will be a dark color, whether it be a wood grain or painted a darker color, such as grey. The upper half section of the cabinets are usually painted white or even a light neutral color such as green or blue. For an island accent the majority of the cabinets are painted white or have a wood grain while the island is generally a darker color. There are so many different combinations you can do with color and wood grain to really make your upscale kitchen cabinets unique.
