In our last blog, we discussed some of the trends taking the cabinet world by storm. Whether you are getting all new cabinets or you just want to give your current cabinets a facelift, it’s a good idea to understand the current trends so you can pick out the ones you like. At the end of the day, you should have cabinets that you love, and whether they align with current trends or not doesn’t necessarily matter. We just think you’ll find that you probably love at least one of the trends that make cabinets modern and appealing for years to come.

We’ve already chatted about horizontal orientation, clean lines, timeless motifs, natural elements, and handcrafted touches. In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss a few more popular trends that you may find appealing.

Cabinet Design Trends

Color Blocking

Contrast is a great way to add interest to your kitchen or bathroom. It’s also a way to get a beloved, vivid hue into the design without ruining the aesthetics of your room. Contain the vivid colors to blocks of cabinets and contrast them with cream or icy white to create a luxurious look. We can help you create the perfect design for your kitchen or living room. Even better, we don’t have to replace your cabinets in order to give you the revolutionary look you need. We offer cabinet refacing that allows us to transform your current cabinets. You won’t even recognize them!

Color Depth

Whether you decide to go blue, green, red, brown, yellow, or any other color, don’t just use one shade. Create depth and layers with lighter and darker versions of the color. Once it gets to the really vivid colors, you can use vases or other collectibles to add those dynamic pops of color that your kitchen or bathroom needs.

Functional Areas

Cabinets are a sublime marriage of form and function. While we’ve talked plenty about form, the function of the cabinets is equally important. The design of your cabinets should be dictated by their purpose. For instance, if you love to bake, you’ll want a design that includes a big work surface, storage for pans and tools, and easy access to supplies like flour and sugar. When it comes to a bathroom, you might need a double sink. Your laundry room might be small and benefit from a built-in ironing board. The possibilities are endless, especially when you’re building custom. However, even if you’re renewing your current cabinets, we can make adjustments to enhance their functionality as well as their appearance.


Speaking of function, your cabinets can play a whole new role these days. A cabinet with a built-in charging station or storage for a laptop can take your storage to a new level, allowing you to enjoy convenience that will be appreciated for years to come.

Style Transitionally

Today’s homes feature more and more open floorplans, which means the cabinetry needs to flow from logical space to logical space. We can help you use complementary colors and designs to create a comfortable, appealing transition from kitchen to family room or bathroom to dressing room.

Industrial Touches

Contrast evokes an emotional response and pairing industrial touches like copper pipes, concrete, and blackened materials can enhance the coziness and comfort of any space. Cabinet handles and faucets are particularly potent opportunities for incorporating those little touches.

The beauty of cabinets is that they provide consistent convenience and key aesthetic support to any space. Whether your cabinets need an upgrade or you’re ready to install brand new ones, JV Cabinet Makers is your answer. Contact us in San Francisco for cabinet refacing and more!
