As the end of the year quickly approaches, you may be wondering what you can do to give your kitchen a new look for the new year. Over the last three years, many of us have gained a new appreciation for our homes and want to make them as comfortable as possible. A kitchen cabinet makeover can be just what you need to make your kitchen beautiful and inviting. CabinetNow has predicted these top 4 cabinet door styles will be the sensation of 2023.
1. Shaker Slim
There is no denying it. Shaker cabinet doors are just about everywhere you look and they are not going anywhere. Shaker cabinets are one of the most well-known and recognizable cabinet door designs on the market. However, the classic shaker-style cabinet door isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. And so, it should be no surprise that this style that has remained so popular has also been adapted and experimented with by interior designers.
Shaker slim cabinet doors are a modern twist to the original shaker cabinet doors. Only thing is, the stiles and rails are much thinner than the first generation shaker style. These cabinet doors are perfect for a minimalist kitchen or bathroom by bringing a clean and contemporary design.
Maybe people opt for the traditional shaker cabinet door for their kitchen or bathroom design. This can be a great choice for a variety of design aesthetics. For example, shaker cabinet doors are often used in farmhouse kitchen design. In this style, you will likely find the cabinet doors painted in a bright white or possibly a light blue. In these colors, the shaker is perfect for creating a light and airy appearance that still has the coziness we expect from farmhouse designs.
Alternatively, classic shaker doors can be stained for stunning effects. This design falls into the traditional kitchen category with its emphasis on construction and quality of materials. Stain finishes highlight the beauty of the natural material, which we have several to choose from, and also bring the details of the joint construction into focus. Darker stains can also be used to create rich, sophisticated kitchen designs.
3. Reeded Cabinets
Reeded or beaded cabinets have become a sensation because it adds character rather than traditional smooth panels. This design begins with the traditional shaker cabinet door and then adds new elements to give it a modern spin. The Bradford goes a step further than the Shaker slim or and adds a beaded panel to the design.
Surrounded by 2” stiles and rails, the Bradford modern thermofoil cabinet door features a panel with vertical beaded detailing that gives the appearance of wood planks. In addition, this design also adds subtle detail to the inside edge of the frame that gently slopes down. These details create a lot of eye movement and interest. Whether you choose rustic light oak, navy blue, or antique white, the Bradford modern door is sure to make a statement in your kitchen or bathroom design.
4. Slab Style Cabinet Doors
Slab cabinet doors and drawers are perfect for a modern, minimalist kitchen or bathroom. With the right finish and decorative hardware, they can also be great in transitional spaces. If you are planning or already have attention-grabbing features in your kitchen like granite counters or decorative tile, slab doors make the perfect complement with their subtle sophistication.
A slab cabinet door is a sleek, one-piece, solid door with no frame or panel. Classically, the slab door is referred to as the “European Style of cabinetry.” This style is often used with full overlay for frameless boxes or inset with framed boxes because the flush, straight lines are perfect for modern designs. CabinetNow offers a variety of wood styles and Thermofoil options each with a range of colors to choose from.
