A kitchen cabinet is always designed with storage and space in mind. Its design and aesthetic is secondary. Yet, taking up a large part of the kitchen, it definitely adds to the space’s décor, and is often the easiest fitting to makeover.

If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen cabinet design with the latest colour ideas and trends, here’s a round up of chic ideas we are eyeing these days.
 

1. PLAY UP YOUR KITCHEN CABINET DESIGN WITH METALLIC DETAILING
When we think of any form of cabinetry, we always visualise wooden doors, drawers and panelling. However, if you’re looking for something unique to recreate the latest kitchen designs in your home, think of using unusual materials for the front of your cabinets. Metals such as brass or copper will add a glamorous spin to these storage spaces. You could either go all out by covering the entire surface area with it or add minimal detailing along the edges of the frame.

STYLE TIP: Have a look at all the different metallic textures and finishes before deciding which one you want. If you think glossy metal may be too loud for you, you could always use a more distressed or oxidised version.

2. CREATE A STRIKING FOCAL POINT WITH YOUR KITCHEN COLOUR IDEAS
Sometimes, you can use a single colour for your kitchen colour ideas or kitchen cabinet design in a small way to create a focal point in the room. The shade you pick could be your favourite colour or a hue that’s recently caught your eye. When painted on your cabinets or drawers, it will immediately add warmth and vibrance to the room, drawing the eye of anyone who steps into it.

3. ADD UTILITARIAN FEATURES IN YOUR KITCHEN CABINET DESIGN
Being a room in the house that has to be the most functional, a kitchen with nifty utilitarian details can make working it in even easier. Besides cooking, there are always notes being scribbled around for important things. Be it a grocery list, important details to remember in the near future or a message for the rest of your family to see while you’re away—having a small notepad in the kitchen always comes in handy. But if you want an easier option that’s unique and more visible, consider creating a chalkboard finish on one of your cabinet fronts. Not only is this an unusual

idea that will make your latest kitchen design stand out, it’s the most reusable and sustainable option for taking down notes.

EXPERT EYE: If you don’t have cabinets overhead, and want to install this design in the kitchen, create a chalkboard on the stovetop hood.

4. A MONOCHROME PALETTE WILL ALWAYS CREATE A TIMELESS KITCHEN CABINET DESIGN
If you’re always faced with the task of decluttering your kitchen or find it the busiest room in the house that looks too cramped, a simple colour palette can help create a sense of openness. As a rule of thumb, white or cream is the safest and brightest colour that can immediately make the smallest of spaces look bigger. If you’re worried about an all-white kitchen cabinet design looking too plain or washed out, intersperse it with black for a monochrome palette. As a combination that’s timeless and never goes out of style, a black-and-white kitchen design is a safe option you’ll never tire of for years to come.

5. THE LATEST KITCHEN DESIGNS HAVE AN INTERPLAY OF COLOURS AND MATERIALS
To not make your kitchen look too dated or boring, it’s a good idea to give it a quick makeover every now and then. It could be a fresh layer of paint or installing a new modern fitting that may do the trick. Or, for a less messy idea, you can change the fronts of your cabinetry. To upgrade your kitchen cabinet design, swap out the old laminates or stain the wood in a new polish. If the entire room looks a bit flat, create layers with a mix of colours and materials on your cupboards and drawers.

EXPERT EYE: The raw wood drawers under the countertop have been paired neatly with the eggshell-hued cabinets above.

Using a neutral colour always makes pairing easy. To add a hint of glamour, the hood above the cooking range has a glossy copper finish.

6. USE YOUR HOME’S SURROUNDINGS TO INSPIRE THE KITCHEN’S COLOUR IDEAS
Your home’s surroundings can be echoed in the décor in each room, especially if you live around an abundance of nature. For example, if you’re close to the mountains or hills, raw wood for your cabinetry can replicate the charm of the forests in your kitchen. Similarly, if your home is next to the ocean, a lake or river, shades of azure can be incorporated in your kitchen colour ideas to create the latest kitchen designs.

7. THE LATEST KITCHEN DESIGNS IN ONE SINGLE STATEMENT COLOUR
If you’re scared about using bold colours in the kitchen, wondering if they’d made the space look too busy, try picking one statement colour for the entire space. This will create a sense of neat uniformity without being too overpowering. Simple tricks for working with a statement colour—such as painting it in a matte shade and pairing down the accessories and fittings around it—will tie kitchen together. If you’re looking to create a statement with the colour green that’s on-trend right now, we are partial to Asian Paint’s colour of the year Cherish.

8. A DARK KITCHEN CABINET DESIGN WILL CREATE A POLISHED SPACE THAT’S HIGH ON STYLE
For a stylish kitchen design that’s also extremely stylist and contemporary, try a darker theme for your kitchen cabinet design. You could choose all-black laminates for your drawer and cabinet fronts or something slightly softer like slate or steel grey. For an ultra modern kitchen, continue this colour palette across all the fittings and the countertop. 

9. A KITCHEN CABINET DESIGN FOR AN OPEN KITCHEN
For kitchens with an open floor plan that share their space with the living room, picking the right cabinet design might seem a bit tricky. Contrary to being a hidden space relegated to one end of the home, an open kitchen blends with the interior design of the living area (usually the living or dining room). It is meant to showcase the same elements of style and design as the rest of the room. When choosing a design for the cabinets of an open kitchen, pick details such as a colour, material or texture used in the rest of the room.
