Neutral Wood Finishes

  • According to Plain & Fancy Cabinetry, the most popular wood finishes for cabinets are Walnut and Oak, two classic and beautifully grained materials. 
  • For painted cabinets, white is still the top choice of homeowners, with gray and black making a strong showing as well.  
  • Gaining in popularity is Navy Blue, the new neutral that pairs well with both bright focal colors and other neutrals that allow it to stand out.

Engineered Materials

  • Engineered Quartz is now the most popular countertop material, with white countertops leading the way. Engineered material is showing up everywhere in the kitchen, from countertops to the floor to the sink. 
  • Sink manufacturers like Elkay are staying ahead of the trend by developing engineered quartz sinks in exciting colors like the beautiful blue of their Jubilee, which is the perfect accompaniment to a kitchen with Navy Blue cabinets.
