Summer is right around the corner, and the heat is practically here already! While we may like to retreat indoors into our havens, we should really get out and enjoy our endless summer weather.
Designing a custom outdoor kitchen is the perfect way to bring everything you love about your house outside to enjoy the weather. Make your outdoor living area a true statement with these trends in outdoor kitchen cabinetry from the Cabinet Chic herself.
Let’s make your outdoor living area haute!
Find The Perfect Style For You
You may want your outdoor space to blend with your interior’s current style, but you may not know how to go about it outdoors. Or maybe you want to create something entirely separate and unique to your home.
Here are some popular choices in cabinetry colors and styles to help you decide on and achieve the vibe you’re looking for!
What’s your design style? > Take our quiz!
1. Natural Wood
Natural wood cabinetry is always a popular and safe choice no matter the style you are going for! As a bonus, if you ever decide to switch up your style, you can always stain the wood or simply change the surrounding cabinets and décor.
Darker natural wood custom cabinetry would be a great choice for a rustic, country feel in your outdoor kitchen, while light, neutral woods are perfect for a crisp, clean, and timeless look.
The versatility of wood is unmatched, as it is hard to turn a painted finish into a natural wood finish, but it is easy to paint a wood any color you decide to change it to.
Mix and match your upper and lower cabinets with contrasting colors to prevent your outdoor kitchen’s style from looking entirely outdated in a few years to come.
The best rule of thumb is to place your lighter tones on top and darker tones on the bottom. Two-toned cabinetry gives you the opportunity to expand on your kitchen's color palette without seeming too overly colored.
To make things extra stylish, you may also mix textures in a complementary color to prevent overloading on color or having drastic contrasts in your space. Just remember to leave plenty of space for a range hood between uppers if your outdoor kitchen is under your lanai area.
3. Black and Deep Colors
For a more modern or even a more eclectic look outdoors, black and deep blues or greens are an excellent choice. If you are looking to achieve a modern look, mix the dark cabinetry with a light quartz countertop and metallic accents for the hardware. This look is always in style and will remain beautiful for a long time!
On the other hand, if you’re looking for a more eclectic vibe for your outdoor kitchen, mixing a deep green with sealed, natural wood counters or accents would be perfect.
4. Reclaimed Wood
If you are going for a stylish yet eco-friendly space for your outdoor kitchen, reclaimed wood walls, shelves, and even custom cabinetry may pique your interest! Your outdoor kitchen will have a one-of-a-kind look as your pieces will be completely unique to your home.
Accent these reclaimed wood cabinets with natural and durable looking materials, such as brick, metal, marble, or even quartz.
Bonus, our local craftsmen can also make the perfect reclaimed wood or other custom dining table for your outdoor living area too. Or gorgeous beams that draw your eye and make the space feel like home. The opportunities to tailor your home are endless.
