2017's Top Trends: The Perfect Kitchen Cabinets for Your Next Remodel

Remodelling your kitchen? Let's start with the cabinets.

According to a study by Houzz.com, a website dedicated to all things interior design and decorating, there is an unexpected benefit to remodelling and redesigning your kitchen: you become healthier. Apparently, over 33% of people eat healthier, order less take out and cook more meals after they’ve invested in a new kitchen.

But a new kitchen isn’t just great for your health; it’s great for the value of your property too.

And if there’s one aspect of a kitchen that can have the biggest impact – both in terms of the aesthetic appeal and value of the property – it’s the kitchen cabinets. 

But they’re not a cheap investment.

In fact, according to improvenet.com, you can expect to spend roughly $4,305 to replace your kitchen cabinets. 

That’s why it’s important to make sure you pick the right ones for your next kitchen remodel.

Minimal white kitchen cabinets

Clean, sleek and minimal; white cabinets are one of 2017’s top kitchen cabinet trends. Not only do they give the kitchen a modern finish, but they reflect light around the kitchen, making it seem brighter and bigger. (So, if your kitchen is a little on the cozy side, white cabinets are a solid choice.)

The SEKTION cabinets from IKEA start at $239 for a base cabinet and are perfect for a minimal (but practical) finish. 

Cool gray cabinets

Gray comes in just behind white as the second most popular kitchen cabinet color across the USA. (And, if you limit that survey to the under 30s, it takes pole position.) 

It’s easy to see why, too. Gray cabinets are classy, understated and cool.

But the best thing about them?

Gray cabinets go with almost anything. They’re equally at home in a sleek modern kitchen or among the exposed bricks of a farmhouse kitchen.

Which means that these Hampton Bay cabinets from Home Depot (starting at $148) are the perfect choice to make a huge difference to the look of your kitchen (without breaking the bank).

Midcentury cabinets

If you’re looking to give your kitchen a cool, vintage vibe (think more Mad Men, less Leave It to Beaver) then you’ll be pleased to know that midcentury kitchen cabinets are back in style. 

And, because the term ‘midcentury’ is quite broad, there are tons of options to help you achieve that enviable retro feel, from easy-to-maintain metal cabinets to Scandinavian-inspired walnut doors.

SemiHandmade are a great option for adding a touch of midcentury cool to your kitchen, but for an authentic vintage feel, you might want to head to eBay and hunt around for some genuine kitchen cabinets from the 1950s. (Although, they might not come cheap.) 

Farmhouse cabinets

According to People.com, farmhouse cabinets are becoming increasingly popular for younger (25-34) homeowners. And, because farmhouse kitchens are extremely adaptable to their surroundings – think lots of exposed brick, tiles and stripped back woodwork – they’re a good fit for almost any house. 

For bespoke farmhouse cabinets, try Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry. (They also do white cabinets, if you want a step up from your one-size-fits-all IKEA kitchen.)
