The dominant trend in cabinetry for 2016 is clean, subtle lines. This simple, modern style is just gaining steam and should be popular for years to come, making it the ideal choice for those looking to upgrade their kitchen cabinets. The Society Shaker Series from Willow Lane Cabinetry is right on trend for the upcoming year, in attractive finishes like Dove Gray, Steel Gray, Black, Khaki, and Society Shaker White.
With numerous styles to choose from today, many homeowners are passing on expensive custom cabinets and opting for more affordable semi-custom cabinets instead. With free online kitchen design services, the designers at Willow Lane Cabinetry work with you via email or phone to create the perfect kitchen for your unique home.
Along with clean lines, white kitchen cabinets are still all the rage. But other neutral colors like gray, beige and “greige” — the newly coined combination of the two — are quickly gaining steam. These warm, understated hues work well in any part of the home, including the kitchen. Neutral colors are also in when it comes to countertops. Choose light colored granite in tones of gray, beige, and white.
Black and Blue
Black stainless steel is quickly becoming the hot new trend in kitchen appliances. Slightly darker than stainless steel but lighter than the traditional black appliance options, black stainless is an elegant alternative for any kitchen. And while black is back in 2016, an all black kitchen would be overwhelmingly dark. Pair touches of black with lighter colors, such as white, or a light grayish-green. Blue tones are also in this year, and a great choice for kitchen walls.
Functionality is just as important as style when it comes to your kitchen. Smart homeowners use every inch of storage space available by installing inside cabinet accessories like pullout waste containers, door mounted spice racks, and cookware organizers, just to name a few. You will also see the Lazy Susan making a comeback in 2016.
Hard Wood Floors
Hard wood is the top choice in kitchen flooring for 2016. Currently more popular than tile, hardwood is especially nice in an open concept home (also on trend this year), seamlessly blending living spaces. The most popular hard wood finishes include white washed, dark espresso, blond, gray, and light brown.
Contemporary Farmhouse Style
Transitional kitchens are hot, incorporating classic elements with up-to-date convinces. With that in mind, the Contemporary Farmhouse Kitchen by far takes the cake this year — when done correctly. Skip the country kitsch, and focus on timeless farmhouse style with open shelving, a butcher-block kitchen island, a white ceramic or copper apron sink, and tasteful vintage accents.
