We all know there will be hot new fashion trends this fall, but did you know kitchens can have trend, too? While these styles may be off the runway, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep them in mind while stylizing.

With the holidays in mind, many homeowners choose to redo their kitchens in the fall. In fact, white kitchen cabinets are the most popular choice among kitchen renovators this fall.

“Our most popular door style this year has been the white shaker kitchen cabinet, which gives your kitchen a clean and inviting feeling,” explains Benjamin Gordon, Vice President of Kitchen Resource Direct. “White kitchen cabinets also give you tremendous freedom to paint your walls a bold color and add strong accent features to your kitchen. Almost like a blank canvas for your kitchen design.”

Rustic themes are also very popular for fall of 2012. Combining chocolate or coffee glazing to a cabinet door painted white accents the grooves with an antique look. Another rustic style for your new kitchen is to purchase painted cabinets that are rubbed or weathered.

“Don’t be afraid to combine completely different style cabinets with one another in your kitchen,” Gordon recommends.

The paint colors for white kitchen cabinets can come in many shades including bright white, vanilla, buttercreme, linen, antique white, and creme. This makes it difficult to choose when shopping online, so you may want to consider popping in to your local kitchen retailer for a hands-on style session.
