One trend that fits into both modern and traditional kitchen cabinet design is creating an all grey kitchen. There are many grey hues to choose from, opening a wide spectrum of design options. For example, you can combine charcoal grey cabinets with lighter grey kitchen countertops, such as 5212 Noble Grey. Another option is pale grey cabinets with a 5003 Piatra Grey dark grey backsplash. Whichever combination you choose, imagine how well the grey will offset your stainless-steel sink and appliances.
One top kitchen design trend I love is to have sections of the upper cabinet extended onto the counter. Let's face it, we all love our small appliances (i.e. toaster oven, espresso machine) but we may not want them on display all the time. A multi-purpose kitchen island has been the go-to solution to disguise the microwave and dishwasher, but unless the island is 10 feet long, it is challenging and perhaps impractical for the island to house the small appliances we use daily off the counter. By having the upper cabinets extended to the counter and small appliances sitting behind doors, you can achieve a sleek design statement without sacrificing your morning coffee!
