4 kitchen cabinet trends – and lighting to match

Just like the latest fashion fads, home decor trends come and go. Plan your kitchen remodel with cabinet designs that account for a updated – yet timeless – style. Plus, enjoy a look at lighting styles that best pair with today’s most popular cabinet choices.

Light, bright and white

White or off-white cabinets contribute to a country chic atmosphere with an element of simplicity and brightness. The white kitchen has been around for decades, and is not going out of style anytime soon.

Lighting Tip: Pair white cabinets with Brushed Nickel or Polished Nickel fixtures for a bright and modern appeal. Or, for a bolder look, a dark finish such as a rich Oil Rubbed Bronze provides striking contrast.

Efficient and task-oriented

Today’s multi-functional kitchens are well equipped with efficient storage options. Pull out trays, breadboxes and narrow spaces are designed to enhance the functionality of your cabinetry.

Lighting Tip: Enhance efficiency with under cabinet lighting to assist you in completing tasks such as chopping vegetables, preparing meals or reading recipes.

See-through style

Another popular trend for kitchen cabinets is to outfit the front of cabinets with clear glass. See-through cabinets offer a light and airy look, as well as endless design possibilities. Display your favorite dishes, or dress up the back of your cabinets with a bright accent color or pattern.

Lighting Tip: Mimic the look of your peek-a-boo glass cabinets with clear glass fixtures with exposed bulbs – a popular look for today’s interiors.

Embellished to perfection

Today’s most interesting cabinet styles mimic the designs of adorned furniture – complete with moldings and cutouts – that contribute to a sophisticated, yet stylish, disply.

Lighting Tip: For cabinetry that is heavily embellished, pair with simple lighting choices that accent – rather than overcomplicate – the cabinetry design.
