Recently, Houzz conducted a survey on the most popular kitchen design trends, and it revealed a lot about how the pandemic has changed design. According to the survey, 63% of homeowners replaced their kitchen cabinets, and many reached out to professionals for help in making the kitchen more functional.
Are you ready to replace your kitchen cabinets? If you are, you should consider some of the top kitchen cabinet trends. Not only does this help give your kitchen personality, but you can add your own personal touch to the design.
Below, we go over the latest trends and kitchen cabinet door styles so you can get started with your renovation or remodeling plans.
When it comes to the different types of kitchen cabinets, flat cabinets are one of the simplest. They have a streamlined, minimalist look and are easy to clean. If you love contemporary or modern kitchens, flat cabinets make an excellent choice.
Since COVID-19 had such an impact on design, many homeowners switched to this style as it’s easy to keep clean. Flat kitchen cabinet doors are available in laminate or wood. They are also available in a variety of colors and styles.
When envisioning kitchen cabinets, shaker cabinets are perhaps the most common style found in homes.
Shaker cabinets have a five-piece door with a recessed panel. They are visually distinctive while still retaining a classic look that fits in any style kitchen.
Shaker cabinets derive their name from the Shakers. This cabinet style saw a revival in the early 20th century, and this functional, efficient, and stylish design is still popular today.
If all-white kitchens aren’t your style, you might like the color cabinet trend. Trendy kitchen cabinets in colors like grey, blue, and green are rising in popularity.
Flat-style cabinets come in many colors and look both modern and stylish in unusual colors, but you can get custom cabinets for your kitchen as well. For instance, if you love the shaker style, you can work with your designer to see if you can get green shaker cabinets.
If committing to color cabinets seems like too big of a step, consider adding texture and smaller pops of color instead. The backsplash is a great place to add a touch of color and interest to a kitchen.
Another way to add color to your kitchen is with colorful bar stools or other accessories.
Another popular trend for 2021 includes black cabinets in the kitchen. Homeowners are shifting from the all-white trend toward adding more drama and color in the kitchen. Art Deco vibes seem to be making a comeback, meaning you’ll see black cabinets with gold and brass hardware.
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to take advantage of this trend, consider mixing the colors of the base cabinets and upper cabinets.
Black and white cabinets mix well and let you add more personality to the kitchen. Other colors that match well together? Start with white cabinets and add in a dash of contrasting color, such as cobalt blue, navy, or gray.
You have other options other than color as well. Natural, rustic-looking wood and glass go well together.
You can also choose a kitchen island in a different color (or a different material) to add a pop of interest. Consider some of the color combinations we mentioned or choose something bright and cheerful like yellow.
Yet another rising trend in kitchen design is mixing and matching metals. Although matching hardware and metals have been the favored method for some time, we’re seeing some designs with a more flexible approach. Consider mixing complementary metals, like nickel and cool brass.

If colors and black cabinets aren’t your style, but you’re tired of the white cabinet look, you might love this next trend. Rustic and distressed cabinets are making waves in the design world.
Natural wood looks beautiful in many types of kitchens, and it can bring some warmth into the room. The general trend is to use lighter woods, such as light oak. The lighter wood trend may be a reflection of the current love of minimalistic design.
As an added bonus, light wood can help create the illusion of a bigger kitchen and brighten up the space.
Glass-Front and Open Cabinets
A newfound love of simplicity seems to be driving this next trend. Open shelving is a straightforward way to store dishes and glasses. Whether you keep your dishware simple and display only the dishes used most often, or you want a way to show off family heirlooms, this trend could be for you.
Open cabinets make it easy for everyone to find what they need, but you will need to keep your kitchen and your dishes clean as they’re exposed to the elements. Consider combining open cabinets with another type to add diversity and interest to the kitchen.
If you like the idea of showing off your favorite dishes, but you don’t want the hassle of cleaning them so often, glass-front cabinets are an ideal compromise. This classic design adds a touch of elegance to your kitchen design. You can also get glass-front cabinets in varying colors and styles.
