White is still the preferred color for kitchen cabinetry. Gray finishes remain a popular, neutral choice that goes well with a variety of colors.
We offers crisp, classic whites such as Macadamia, White and Marshmallow Cream.
Popular grays include Peppercorn, Slate, Driftwood and Graphite.
Many people enjoy stained cabinets because they are easier to maintain and keep clean in a busy kitchen.
Design and style
Contemporary kitchen design is quickly gaining in popularity, but transitional remains the top choice.
Look for the addition of decorative cabinetry elements such as corbels, cutouts and legs that add interest and create the look of furniture.
Open shelving and glass front cabinet doors are excellent choices to help create an open, spacious feel in your kitchen.
Panels on refrigerators and on dishwashers conceal appliances and create a furniture look.
Countertops and fixtures
Granite remains the first choice for countertops. Challenging granite’s popularity are durable composite quartz materials with non-porous surfaces that resist staining.
Black countertops are a chic, dramatic choice for 2015 and work well with a variety of cabinet colors.
Backsplashes of glass and natural materials are a focal point around range hoods and sinks. They often extend to the ceiling, creating interest and complementing your kitchen design.
Touch-activated kitchen faucets are a top choice for their convenience and reduced water usage.
Satin nickel is the preferred finish.
Efficient LED lighting is gaining momentum for undercounter lighting; inside glass door cabinetry to showcase collectables; and along the base cabinet toe-kick area.
Proper lighting serves as task lighting and accent lighting, adding beauty and practicality.
