Are you remodeling your kitchen? If so, your cabinetry and design should be anything but bland. Cabinetry trends in 2012 are all about style, functionality, and customization. From finishes to layout experimenting, Columbia Kitchens is here to help make the top selling part of your home desirable and valuable. Our designers will guide you into making the right style choices to fit your home, while creating a functional and practical layout.
The following trends are what’s hot on the market for 2012 and should be considered in your kitchen design project:
Customize Your Storage Space
The first thing to consider eliminating in your new design is clutter. Your designer will discuss your storage needs and find out where things are stored currently. They will offer different options to optimize your space by adding inserts to your cabinetry, eliminating the clutter, and making things easier to find. You could include rollout trays in base cabinets or pantries so that you can pull out items with ease, while organizing dry and can goods. Another option could be to include base and pantry pullouts so that you can just pull the pullout straight out with the door, making spices and storage items accessible with a simple tug on the knob. Tilt-out trays for sink bases are another popular trend that you should consider if you would like to hide the sponge away behind the dummy drawer front of the sink base.
Use A Dark Finish And Contrast It With A Splash Of Color
This year, dark, rich cabinetry finishes are extremely in demand. One very popular dark finish is the Espresso finish on maple or cherry. This could be in the whole kitchen, just the island, or on accent pieces. You could compliment this area with the rest of the kitchen being in a lighter finish, but with a chocolate or espresso glaze. Two tone kitchens are stylish and make your kitchen pop. You could also add a few eye-catching glass inserts to add even more flair.
Add Fine Furniture Details To Your Cabinetry
Another increasingly popular design trend this year is installing cabinetry with furniture-like detail. This could be with furniture legs, mantles, dummy doors, moldings and display areas. Add furniture accents to really transform your kitchen to an elegant and creative space.
Go For Non-traditional Arrangements
This year keep your kitchen hip by going non-traditional in your cabinetry arrangements. Instead of lining your cabinets up evenly and ending them at the same height, stagger them at different heights. This look creates a visually appealing and stylish effect that anyone would love to have, and is all done by changing the heights of only a few cabinets. It also creates accent areas to display items, and creates a look that will compliment any home.
