2020 Kitchen Design Trend | Custom White Cabinets

2020 Kitchen Design Trend | Custom White Cabinets

Simple, elegant and timeless – Custom white cabinets are a must-have kitchen design element heading into 2020. With their clean lines and “blank canvas” of color, white cabinets are the perfect backbone for your modern kitchen design. Whether you wish to keep your kitchen design simple or play with bolder elements, white cabinetry provides a reliable anchor for the rest of your kitchen.

We turned to the official Instagram of Peter Salerno Inc. for kitchen cabinet design inspiration. Since 2001, no North American custom kitchen design company has won more awards than Peter Salerno Inc. – for their ingenuity, their personal touches, and their expert craftsmanship. Peter Salerno and his team are renowned for their Maestro Rosolino line of custom cabinetry, and their Instagram features some elegant white cabinet design work.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s white cabinetry designs teach us that simplicity doesn’t have to be simple-minded. Clean lines and an expertly applied layer of white paint provide a delicate canvas upon which to make subtle, effective design choices. We love the interlocking mullions on the glass cabinet doors above – they create an eye-pleasing design while still allowing plenty of sight into the cabinets’ contents.

Obviously, white is a great option when playing with natural light and light fixtures. Adding recessed lighting into white, glass-door cabinets creates an elegant tone, as well as a glow that radiates throughout your kitchen. In a kitchen with plenty of windows and natural light, white cabinetry reflects sunlight (instead of absorbing it and dulling its effects).

Creative mullion design on white, glass-door cabinets is key to exceptional kitchen design in 2020. The flowers carved into the mullions above reflect the birth month of their owner, adding a personal touch to the cabinet design.

The floral white kitchen cabinets shown above sit on either side of a statement range and backsplash. The cabinets are backed by a gray & white subway tile design. As a result, the gray and metallic silver elements of the range, backsplash and subway tile are allowed to shine and ‘pop’, turning a simple color scheme into a dazzling kitchen feature wall.

White doors aren’t restricted to cabinets or glass in today’s modern luxury kitchen designs. Custom molded tin panels are flanked with white on the French doors of the refrigerator shown above, turning a simple appliance into a luxurious statement piece.

That is the beauty of designing kitchen cabinets and storage space with white doors and features – the rest of your design can go virtually anywhere!

PANTONE Home + Interiors 2020 Color Forecast | A First Look

PANTONE Home + Interiors 2020 Color Forecast | A First Look

In the latest edition of what has become a must own series for home and interior design enthusiasts, PANTONE explores “Color for a New Era: Trends, Twists and Tweaks.”

PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020 is an essential style guidebook to color trends for the upcoming year in home design. From the official PANTONE release:

PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020 guides us into this new era reinforcing the notion that muted and vibrant tones can co-exist, and that a traditional style, especially when tweaked with futuristic touches, offers an unusual and original approach to a product or an interior.

PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020

PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020 is more than the ‘book’ itself; it comes with an enclosed USB drive featuring forecast imagery separated by color family and projected color palettes. In addition, each book comes with a complimentary PANTONE Color Software Manager download which allows you integrate PANTONE colors into digital designs. It’s the perfect way to ensure that your digital design presents the exact color palette you will see in your finished home design space.

What can we learn from the colors presented in this PANTONE forecast? Primarily, that we can throw some staid, traditional color design “rules” out the window. Of particular note to our team at ‘Design Your Lifestyle’ was the re-imagining of traditional neutral tones – taking their place as ‘anchor’ tones in color palettes are more diverse shades like Infinity (a gorgeous dusky blue), Plum Kitten (a gray with very faint reddish-purple undertones), and the classic Maroon.

While ‘neutral’ takes on a different role in this collection, green and floral tones are dominant. We are enamored with the two green colors in the set (Smoke Green and Watercress), which open up a myriad of pairing options. We love the green tones with the light mustard-yellow Acacia, the peachy Dusty Pink, and the punchy Super Pink.

In all, there are 72 forecasted colors in the PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020 guide; we’ve narrowed our preview of this collection to 8 of our very favorite from the “Beyond the Pale” series. We’d love to know what you think about the color palette – leave us a comment!
