Are your kitchen cabinets starting to look dated and out of style, but are otherwise in excellent condition and fully functional? If the answer is yes, it could be time to consider refacing rather than installing new kitchen cabinets.
Rather than spending the money to install new kitchen cabinets, by refacing, you'll be able to choose from the latest kitchen cabinet styles and finishes without the giant price tag that often comes with replacement.
New Kitchen Cabinet Trends
Keeping your kitchen looking "up to date" needn't be an expensive proposition. Here are a few kitchen cabinet styles to consider.
- Dual Cabinet Finishes--Why settle for a single kitchen cabinet style when you can have two? According to Better Homes and Gardens, having two new and different kitchen cabinet finishes isn't just a hot trend, it will bring new life to your kitchen. One option: pairing red and yellow finishes.
- Glass--Another hot kitchen cabinet style, according to Better Homes and Gardens, are cupboards that feature glass. Installing new kitchen cabinet doors featuring glass makes a wall of cabinets seem less heavy while adding a bit of sparkle. If you prefer more privacy you can also choose from stained, seeded, beveled and ribbed glass. These kitchen cabinet styles offer the light of glass, without guests being able to see the contents of your cupboards.
- Casual with Color--If you have an excess of cupboards, another current trend is to remove your upper cabinets and refinish the remaining kitchen cabinets in a different color.
