When it comes to remodeling the kitchen, you will find that kitchen cabinets may well be the largest expense in your budget. That is why it is so important to make the correct choice, after all, they will play a huge part in the room's overall style and its functionality. So if you are thinking of remodelling the kitchen this year, you need to be aware of the latest trends in kitchen design including everything from hidden storage solutions to integrated handle designs and high gloss laminate finishes.

Integrated handles are one particular trend which is really hot at the moment. They are available in a number of different formats, but the most common is to have a continuous line across the cabinet bank. It is likely you will need to opt for custom, or at least semi-custom doors to make the most of this particular option. With the handles integrated into the doors and drawer fronts themselves not only is there less chance of them coming loose, but the kitchen looks altogether sleeker and more contemporary.

That is also one of the reasons that hidden kitchen cabinets are popular right now. Storage in these kitchens can be all but invisible as the cabinet doors are designed to blend seamlessly into the décor and it often appears that they are just a wall. This has the effect of making the room appear much more spacious.

Perhaps the overall hottest trend in kitchen design this year is the European style frameless kitchen cabinets. These combine European chic, with mass market affordability and are being adopted by many American cabinetry specialists. The benefits are many, but for consumers, the most prominent is that cabinets in this style are more accessible and have wider drawers. From the manufacturer's point of view the style uses fewer materials making it more cost effective to produce. With the boom in European frameless style cabinets reaching new heights we are turning to our friends on the continent for other design trends too. It is now common to find cabinets available in all manner of beautiful wood veneers including both traditional and more exotic wood grains. At 27estore.com we offer a large selection of those wood veneers to choose from.
