Buying Cabinets? Knowing Current Trends in North Texas

Buying Cabinets? Knowing Current Trends in North Texas


When contemplating remodeling a kitchen or purchasing a new home, knowing current trends in cabinetry  is absolutely essential.  Cabinets are one of the most important and expensive elements of any kitchen.    As more and more homes are being built or remodeled to open the kitchen to the family room, the choice of cabinets creates a design element in the family room, too.

Remember these recommendations when choosing kitchen cabinetry:
  • Sleeker, more contemporary lines have gained popularity, replacing fussy details

  •  "Pickled" looks and dark stains that deepen shadows are being phased out by painted cabinets in colors that reflect light and work well with glass tile backsplashes

  • Too much wood in a kitchen, such as hardwood floors and matching cabinets, seems too heavy for the hub of the home where so many activities take place 
  • Slimmer hardware for drawers and doors creates a modern, open look
  • Cabinets that extend to the ceiling for additional storage make much more sense than a gap between the top of the cabinets and the ceiling filled with dusty silk plans and knickknacks
  • Specialty storage cabinets such as multi-tiered lazy Susans, slide out drawers for pots and pans, and pullout racks for spices, paper towels, and dish towels add efficiency and reduce clutter.

The cabinets chosen for a home when it is built often stay in the home for decades.  Many homeowners don't even consider replacing kitchen cabinets because of the cost, amount of time required to design and choose cabinets, and upheaval with installation. (Even flooring can be easier to replace.)  Choose the highest quality cabinets that you can possibly afford because they will be with you for a long, long, time.
