2021 Kitchen Cabinet Trends  

Kitchen cabinetry is one of the most underappreciated art forms. At its core, a  kitchen is a place where the occupants of the home gather to nourish both their bodies and souls with good food and companionship. To create the perfect ambiance to enjoy your meals and conversations, you need a perfectly designed kitchen. Kitchen cabinets are, therefore, not just a place to store your utilities;  they are also an integral part of your kitchen’s aesthetic. As a style-conscious homeowner who keeps up-to-date with the latest design trends, this guide will provide you with ideas to take your 2021 kitchen cabinetry to the next level.

The salvaging process involves taking your old outdated cabinets and transforming them into trendy pieces of art by changing their color, replacing their doors, or adding new hardware. And what’s more, you will not only be left with shiny modified cabinets, but you will also have solidified your status as an eco-conscious warrior in the year 2021, who reuses materials to reduce their environmental footprint!

Transitional Kitchen Cabinets 

In keeping with the trend of invoking the future by referencing the past,  transitional-style kitchen cabinets merge both contemporary and traditional designs. The transitional cabinet is, therefore, the median that lies between sleek modernity and classic conventionality. It is an ode to times gone by but remains thoroughly modern in its presentation.  

Stylistically, the key features of transitional cabinetry include a traditional style face, neutral foundation, simplistic yet vibrantly colored decorative trim, and contemporary fittings or accents. Transitional kitchen cabinets are, therefore, the perfect choice for homeowners who despite their current tastes are eternally nostalgic by nature.

Open Shelving 

Say farewell to outdated cabinets with their screws coming loose and hello to clean, modern lines with open shelving. Leap into conspicuous living and instantly transform your kitchen into a fresh, open, and welcoming space with nothing to hide – literally, as all your kitchenware is laid out in full view for all to admire.  

What’s more, by displaying your kitchen supplies on open shelving, you save money on kitchen décor. Additional perks of using open shelving in the kitchen are that it is cost-effective, as it requires the use of less material for construction than conventional kitchen cabinets, and it is space-effective for smaller kitchens in contemporary urban homes that are all the rage this year.

Slab Door Cabinets 

Step fully into modernity with slab door cabinets. Despite the variety of materials from which slab doors can be constructed, such as wood veneer, solid hardwood, and finish-grade plywood; they have one major characteristic in common – their lack of door frames (some designs are so streamlined that there is not even a pull or knob in sight). While some would find this titbit to be somewhat disconcerting, it is the aesthetic feature that has transformed slab doors into the coveted kitchen cabinetry design that it is in the year 2021.  

A minimalist’s dream, slab door cabinets are defined by their clean lines and smooth design. Depending on the look that you want to create, slab door cabinets can either be used to draw attention to a focal piece, such as a brightly colored kitchen appliance, by serving as a neutral background; or create a bare utilitarian look by pairing them with an industrial countertop and backsplash.
