2016 Kitchen Cabinet Trends

Important cabinet meetings (non-political!) have been held to determine trends in kitchen cabinet designs for 2016.

Cabinetry streamlined with clean lines is a popular look. A prominent example is the shaker cabinet design.

Dog loves kitchen

“’Close quarters’” describes my former kitchen,” says Marion, a Coast Guard Veteran. Marion always wanted to renovate the kitchen in the home that she and her husband, Warren, purchased from his family in 1978.

Therefore, he preferred his family home the way he remembered it, and Marion admired Warren’s sentimental side. Warren, who passed away just two years ago, was a retired United States Coast Guard Senior Chief. Marion is originally from Connecticut where Warren was stationed at the US Coast Guard Academy.
