Top 3 Custom Cabinet Trends of 2017


We love custom cabinets because they allow you to turn any kitchen, bathroom, mudroom, or office into your dream space.

Custom cabinetry allows you to utilize your space to the max, while also looking absolutely beautiful. There is no better union of function and beauty than custom cabinets, in our opinion.

We have done a lot of incredible custom cabinet designs and installations in 2017, and we wanted to share with you some of the standout trends from this year.

Top 3 Custom Cabinet Trends of 2017

  1. Dead Space Cabinets: One of the most frequent requests we get is for cabinetry that can take advantage of dead space and increase their storage in small or cramped kitchens and bathrooms. Tall and skinny pull-outs alongside the fridge can be perfect for spices and utensils. Angled, tiny drawers where you just had faux, flat front drawers might be small, but they can store sponges, tools, and more. Full height cabinets in a corner or on the end of a row of cabinets make for great storage for mops and brooms.
  2. Appliance Drawers: Taking things off your countertops is the quickest way to make your home look more clean and expensive. But what about those bulky appliances? We can build you a custom drawer or cabinet specifically for your stand mixer or office printer. If you need a way to store a useful appliance, we can help you with that. Drawers, countertop cabinets, or sliding drawers for inside a pantry can make your appliances more accessible AND safer from nicks, dings, and dirt.
  3. Fancy Front: In 2017 it became much more popular to change up the front of your cabinets. Glass front cabinets allow for beautiful display of decorations or vintage china. Open shelving makes for a breezy and carefree kitchen with quick access to dishes you use frequently. Farmhouse style kitchens look especially custom with chicken wire fronts instead of glass. You can even get matching cabinet panels for your fridge, dishwasher, and more to make your kitchen look more custom and uniform.

Custom cabinetry is more useful and more affordable than you think. If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your kitchen or bathroom, we have some good ideas for you.
