Whether you are hoping to improve the function and look or add value to your home, a bath or kitchen remodel can be a great investment. From replacing floors and adding new appliances to changing out fixtures, there are many ways to update the look of these spaces. New cabinetry may seem like an overwhelming project, but replacing cabinets can be a great option for achieving all the benefits of a remodel. This guide will teach you a few cabinet trends to consider during your bath or kitchen remodel.
Gone are the days of standard white or wood-tone cabinets. Today, more and more homeowners, builders, and designers are adding color to the cabinets in surprising ways.
If you are hoping to create a spa-like retreat in one of your bathrooms, you may think white cabinets are your best option, but that is not necessarily true. Bathroom cabinets come in a variety of colors, such as grey, blue, or even green, are available to help you create the bathroom of your dreams.
For your kitchen, skip the ordinary white, cream, and wood tones and install sage green, royal blue, or even fire-engine red cabinets in certain parts of the space.
If you do not want all of your cabinets to be one color, go for a two-tone look. Two-tone cabinets are becoming more and more popular because they allow you to use two different color options in one space.
You can choose dark black cabinets on the bottom with crisp white cabinets on the top or bisque cabinets throughout the main part of your kitchen and an island composed of green cabinetry.
Color is important, but different finishes for your cabinets will help you add personality to your bathroom and kitchens. Cabinets can be distressed or antiqued if you prefer a rustic look that works great with farmhouse décor. Reclaimed wood from old barns or shiplap can also be installed on the cabinet doors or sides of your cabinets. These unique finishes do add a custom touch to your cabinets, but they also add texture and definition that will be appealing and valuable to potential buyers if you ever need to sell your home.
Finally, make sure to incorporate customized spaces for organizing your belongings in the cabinets. In the bathroom, cabinet drawers and doors that have spaces specifically used for storing makeup, hair accessories/tools, and towels. In your kitchen, make sure your cabinets and drawers have spaces specifically for pots/pans, utensils, long platters and pans, and waste bins. Customize your cabinets according to your family's needs as well. If you are a wine drinker, include a wine fridge and specialized cabinets for storing your wine glasses. If you have a pet, consider a pull-out drawer and cabinet for food bowls and storageShare
