The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where family and friends gather to laugh and exchange news of the day. Whether you are a gourmet cook or an enthusiastic novice chef, today’s kitchens are built for entertaining, a far cry from yesteryear when kitchens were relegated to the back of the home and mainly used for cooking and washing purposes. Thankfully, today’s open kitchen plans allow the cook to socialize and join in the fun while preparing meals. Oh, how kitchen styles have changed over the years. Today, many are outfitted with every state-of-the-art gadget and appliance to rival even the best equipped kitchens on the popular TV cooking shows. Another thing that is also changing is the aesthetic of the kitchen. Stunning cabinetry, countertops and flooring have become a staple of a well-designed kitchen. Whether your style is modern, contemporary, rustic or shabby chic, there is something for everyone in the latest looks and styles in cabinetry that also serve to convey your personal style. So, just what is your style? If you haven’t discovered it yet, let Delorie Countertops and Doors help!  We are a leading kitchen designer in Pompano Beach serving all of South Florida with the latest trends in kitchen cabinetry and door designs. 

New Kitchen Cabinet Trends 

If you were hoping to remodel your kitchen this year then you’ll want to stay abreast of the latest design choices or, if you’re a traditionalist, then you will still have so much to choose from our existing inventory. Here are some of the latest trends in cabinet design: 

  • Out of the light into the dark – yes, kitchen cabinets are trending back towards darker richer hues. But not just dark brown and ebony—you can mix it up with grays, dark blues and velvety mocha colors—really anything to suit your taste and style. 
  • The lowdown on cabinets – those really high cabinets on top are being taken out to allow for a more open space. While some might not like this option, those who could never reach the high cabinets anyway will love the option of utilizing lower shelving for storage.  
  • Opening things up – since we are talking about shelving–open shelving in the kitchen is the latest trend and there are so many materials and textures to choose from. You can even mix and match your cabinetry and shelving to achieve a unique look.  Open shelving is the perfect alternative to higher storage and a wonderful place to display some of your interesting kitchen-themed collectibles.
