Choosing Your Kitchen Cabinets for 2016
For 2016, you may want to spice up your kitchen and remodel it. After all, the kitchen is the most important room in the home for many homeowners, so it makes sense to give it the style and class you’ve always wanted for that room.
Choosing kitchen cabinets involves knowing what types are available and what trends are coming up for the New Year. What will be popular in 2016? And how can you select the right cabinets for your kitchen remodeling project?
Here’s some advice for you as you choose your cabinetry.
Trends for 2016
Custom cabinetry is definitely in this year and will appear in many homes throughout Southwest Florida. This is the best way to get something unique in your kitchen that fits in perfectly with the rest of your home and your overall aesthetic.
As far as materials go, homeowners will likely shy away from cherry and oak to a more modern look with painted and stained wood. The goal is to create a modern, stylish look with a streamlined look. You want to use the look of your cabinetry to make the kitchen appear larger than it really is, and moving away from the classic wood choices will help accomplish that.
Choosing the Right Cabinet
For your kitchen remodeling project, you have several options for cabinets.
One style is an inset cabinet, which features a cabinet door with visible, small hinges on the frame. Most vintage-style cabinets have inset cabinet doors
Another style is partial overlay. This type features cabinet doors that are partially overlaid over the storage space, completely covering the opening and partially covering the face frame. This is a more modern look and works well with cabinet accessories.
You can choose full overlay cabinet doors. This is a modern look which the cabinet door completely overlays the box. You can’t see the frame nor can you see the hinges when the door is closed.
Finally, Frameless cabinet construction is a European way of manufacturing cabinets that has become popular among American homeowners seeking simple, contemporary cabinet designs. Frameless cabinetry is sometimes called “full access” cabinetry because it offers greater accessibility to the interior of the cabinet by eliminating the face frame. Only full overlay doors can be used, with hinges attached directly to the sides of the cabinet box. In frameless construction, cabinets do not have a face frame attached to the front of the cabinet box.
If you want a continuous look across your cabinetry, we recommend full overlay doors in either the framed or frameless styles. The other two styles offer other advantages as well. It all goes back to your aesthetic.
