The Kitchen Matches The Style Of The Home

The kitchen has become the cornerstone of the home. Homes are now seeing a shift in the way homeowners are styling their kitchens. More often we’ll see the kitchen’s features matching (or closely resembling) the rest of the home. This new kitchen trend is creating a higher demand for custom cabinets in Calgary. That way, homeowners can match their kitchen styles with the rest of their homes.

Modern Kitchen Functionality

No matter the way a kitchen is styled, modern functionalities are hugely popular. These functionalities include hydraulic, easy-close doors that fold up and out of the way. Even the modern soft-close doors eliminate slamming and damage.  These modern functionalities are increasingly popular for custom cabinets in Calgary. Especially when it comes to small kitchens, having modern functionality also means more space!

Maximize Kitchen Storage

The only way to get great storage in your kitchen is to design custom cabinets that fit your unique space. When it comes to kitchen storage, there isn’t a person in the world who can say they have “too much.” The kitchen is home to not only cooking supplies and food, but to other knick knacks as well. Preventing clutter on counters is hugely popular among kitchen trends, therefore having lots of storage with modern functionality means your belongings are out of the way.

Neutral Colours

Painting a kitchen with neutral colours allows a homeowner to use accent colours in other areas. The accent colour could be shown in kitchen towels, pot holders, placemats, even in the floor or countertop. Neutral colours allow for the ultimate personalization of the kitchen. Cabinets are more frequently being painted in neutral colours for this reason.

Grey Is The New White

While neutral coloured cabinets are on the rise, white cabinets are still king. However, grey cabinets are slowly creeping up on the classic white. As a cool colour, grey is still a little more flexible than white. Grey is the softer colour, and it’s more unique. Homeowners are out doing themselves and wanting to create a unique environment within their homes. This is why grey is on the rise in regards to custom cabinets.

Black & White Is King

Black and white kitchens are completely classic. They strike a balance between classic and modern while still allowing personalizations and accent colours. The tension between light and dark creates a dramatic space in which a pop of colour will flourish. Between countertops and backsplashes, we’re seeing more neutral colours with a simple pop of eggplant or even gold. The greatest thing about this kitchen trend is that homeowners can completely customize it. From the handles to the styles, black and white kitchens have very different looks across the board.
