Top Knobs’ Top 2024 Kitchen and Cabinetry Trends

Has the start of the new year stirred up the idea of renovating your kitchen or refreshing cabinetry? Keeping up with emerging fads can be challenging, but is essential for curating spaces that are both visually appealing and highly functional. Start planning your next home project with our  guide to 2024’s top kitchen and cabinetry trends!

Cheers to Dedicated Beverage Centers!

From the first cup of coffee in the morning to a relaxing happy hour cocktail, dedicated beverage centers are taking over modern kitchens. Homeowners are seeking ways to efficiently store, access and prepare an array of drinks such as coffee, lattes, wine, cocktails and more. These beverage centers often include appliances like espresso machines, in-cabinet mini-fridges and ice makers.

Beverage centers are strategically positioned near living rooms and entertainment areas for seamless and convenient hosting. To create cohesion between these ancillary spaces and the kitchen, we recommend decorating with the same cabinetry and decorative hardware. With an extensive array of knobs and pulls in a number of sizes we offer perfect pieces to establish impeccable balance.

Green with Envy

The desire to connect our homes with nature is here to stay in 2024. Expect to see kitchen aesthetics to shy away from neutral, monotone palettes and lean towards softer, Earthy tones, with green leading the way. From shades of sage to emerald, green is the dominant choice for cabinetry this year. For flawless harmony, consider pairing green cabinetry with hardware in our Honey Bronze finish.

Tactile Textures

Many designers and homeowners are veering away from exclusively smooth surfaces and instead are embracing raw finishes and tactile details. By integrating a range of textures like fluted materials and knurled detailing, basic kitchen designs are transforming into dynamic environments. Our latest addition to the Top Knobs family, the Garrison Collection, features six suites of knobs, pulls, appliance pulls and backplates, each piece featuring knurled texture. It’s the perfect choice for those looking to add coarse finishes into their next refresh or remodel.

Contrasting Cabinets

Looking to infuse color into your kitchen but unsure of where to begin? Using cabinets with contrasting tones is a simple way to introduce color into your space without overwhelming the whole room. Straying away from the shade on the main cabinets, designers and homeowners are now selecting a more striking hue for the island cabinets. We recommend also incorporating a variety of knobs and pulls for added visual intrigue.

Out with White, In with Wood!

In 2024, the all-white kitchen trend is undeniably on the decline. Instead, there’s been a shift to wood tones for added warmth and structure. Throughout kitchen designs, we’re seeing a resurgence of wood accents among cabinetry, flooring and architectural detailing. Opting for lighter wood finishes like white oak or natural oak is ideal to ensure your choice remains contemporary and isn’t outdated. We suggest pairing lighter wood cabinetry with hardware in our Flat Black finish.

Kitchen Cabinets and Decorative Hardware, a Perfect Pair

Kitchens have become one of the most significant rooms of the home when it comes to interior design. With so many components to consider, their versatility in function and style is a large part of what makes kitchen design so exciting!

There’s always a surprising number of decisions to make, and as the defining layer of a kitchen’s layout the cabinets you select might arguably be the most important. The options for style, size and color are just so abundant, and many kitchens need a carefully thought-out combination of cabinetry and decorative hardware to convey the perfect look.

Whether your interior taste leans more towards sleek and modern or you find yourself longing for a vintage farmhouse look, Top Knobs is here to help you find the perfect cabinet and hardware paring for your kitchen. Below, we highlight the most popular styles of cabinetry among today’s homeowners with complementing hardware that are sure to elevate your home.

Traditional

The most formal style of cabinetry, traditionally designed cabinets embody elegance and sophistication. The doors often feature raised panels with intricate woodwork. Traditional cabinets can be found in rich wood tones such as cherry, mahogany and chestnut.

Elaborate hardware in bronze and copper tones add a distinctive finishing touch to traditional cabinets. Detailed embellishments like those found on the knobs and pulls in our Somerset Collection, further enhance the finesse of traditional cabinets.

Shaker

Popular with today’s younger generation of homeowners, Shaker-style cabinets showcase a timeless design with a simple and clean look. These cabinets have a five-piece door with flat recessed panels and a thin frame and are available in just about any color.

Thanks to their versatile design, Shaker cabinets can be paired with a wide variety of hardware. For a classic look we suggest opting for simple hardware with a flat design in a subtle finish like our Brushed Satin Nickel or Polished Chrome. For a look with added interest, we suggest adding contrast to the cabinets with hardware featuring ornate details such as pieces from our Cobblestone Collection.

Contemporary

Featuring a streamlined overlay surface, flat doors and little to no details, Contemporary cabinetry lends to a modern, high-end kitchen design. While their details may be minimal Contemporary cabinets can be found in a bevy of vibrant hues to create a bold and glamorous look.

When selecting decorative hardware for contemporary cabinets, we suggest maintaining their sleek design with tab pulls from our  Europa Series or Minetta Series in on-trend finishes like Flat Black, Ash Gray or Honey Bronze.

Glass-Front

Meant to be paired with traditional styled solid cabinetry, glass-front cabinets are a great way to make a statement in the kitchen. Generally used as upper cabinets, they serve as a functional place to show off your personal style and display glassware, bowls, vases, cookbooks and more.

For this style of cabinetry, we love a matching look and recommend paring with hardware inspired by glass. The soft delicate details of our Emerald Crystal knobs or a selection from our Crystals Collection, complements the refined design present in glass-font cabinets.

Farmhouse

A modern take on traditional design, farmhouse cabinets feature charming characteristics with rustic influences. Often made from reclaimed materials such as shiplap and beadboard Farmhouse cabinetry are almost always painted white or a soft neutral shade and highlights the natural textures found in wood.

Farmhouse cabinets are best adorned with bold hardware that makes a statement. Hardware like the cup pulls from our Channing Series, knobs from our  Kingsbridge Series and pulls from our Arendal Series in finishes like Flat Black and Tuscan Bronze add to the allure of a vintage farmhouse design.
