As we reach the dog days of summer, nothing feels more refreshing than sprucing up an old tired kitchen. Recent trends in cabinetry design and cabinet colors have introduced a wide variety of fresh colorful hues from the softest of grey to myriad of forest greens.
These new traditions transform into classic designs that will withstand the ages of change. Here at Avanti Kitchen and Granite, popular choices among customers have been more utilitarian with the emphasis on practicality, architectural inspirations, and space utilization, all the while keeping up to date with industry favorites.
Consumers tastes in kitchen designs have changed in the last two decades, with plentiful cabinet storage options being a priority. These days cabinet designs can create hidden treasures like roll-out trays to bread boxes hidden in places where one would expect to find swinging door openings. To reveal storage inserts, there are pullout doors attached to shelving units for pots and pans, openings for garbage bins, and even canned and dry good are stored on hidden racks. These pull out units are connected with gliders that smoothly and efficiently store dried goods with no struggle in hard to reach cabinet spots.
Modern appliances with fancy gadgets are no longer the focus because it has now become easier to hide dishwashers, trash compactors, and ice makers behind panels that match adjacent cabinets. It is even possible to hide refrigerators with built in cabinet matching wood. In fact, cabinet insert can be designed to stow everything from mixers to coffeemakers out of sight. The bonus is more surface space to display granite countertops.
Finishes on cabinets can help turn a drab kitchen space into a work of art. Still current are distressed finishes in a range of colors creating the effect of aging wood that feels natural and gives it an old world look; both beautiful and timeless.
In addition, the kitchen designs of today are mimicking furniture as designs for kitchen cabinetry. Some pieces are freestanding, like islands or china hutches.
These freestanding pieces compliment your kitchen style while maintaining space and utility in design, making the kitchen appear as an architectural masterpiece.
