What’s great about seeing these trends is that kitchen renovations are typically the highlight of any new home improvement trend that’s occurring.

We know that the heart of any home starts with the kitchen and the focal point, or rather the deciding factor in achieving a certain kitchen design style will be based on the kitchen cabinets.

Let’s take a look at what the popular kitchen cabinets are this year.

Matte Black Cabinetry for the Eco-Friendly

This space, in particular, comes from the Kungsbacka Sektion and is a combination of recycling wood and bottles.

While still new, it’s gained a lot of popularity within residential developments in places like Tulum, Mexico, and other destinations.

Concealed Hood Vents

Residential homes are starting to create concealed spaces with cabinets to match in order to create a more elegant and sophisticated space for the new homeowner in mind.

Paint colors for this style come most often in white in order to maintain a clean and minimalist appeal, especially in rentals or high-population cities where kitchen space tends to be smaller. The most common type of cabinet found in this trend is the Shaker cabinet.
