New details in the modern kitchen

Choosing one style of cabinets for your whole kitchen is a thing of the past. Your kitchen is a multi-faceted space with many unique spaces that each serve a function, so why would you choose the same style and color cabinet for each area? You still want the overall design to be cohesive, but you don’t want it to be static and boring.

Two-tone cabinets are trending in the modern kitchen

Lighter cabinets on top and darker ones on the bottom have slowly turned to lighter grays and neutrals on top, and then turning to a navy, green, or even black for the lower cabinets to create contrast. The mix of colors is a breath of fresh air in a world of stark white kitchen designs.

Play with texture

Playing with various textures in your kitchen, from the fixtures to the appliances to the cabinets and countertops, can also add personality and personal style to your dream kitchen. Black fixtures are a bold, modern choice, from appliances to countertops to lighting to faucets. Instead of the traditional silver shine, look for matte textures that won’t catch and reflect the light too intensely.
