Kitchen Cabinet Trends – and Today’s Personalized Choices

We had fun going through an article at This Old House that shared kitchen trends over the decades, and here are some interesting observations about cabinets.

  • 1920s: How many of you remember your grandmothers having a hoosier? This stand-alone piece of furniture had metal-lined drawers for flour, pull out spice racks and more to organize the kitchen.
  • 1930s: This decade saw splashes of color with painted cabinets (although this picture doesn’t show the colors).
  • 1950s: The cabinets, like the rest of this kitchen, formed the shape of a U.
  • 1970s: Note how the cabinets conformed to the prevailing kitchen color scheme of brown, gold and avocado. (And it wouldn’t be surprising if the entire house used that color scheme!)
  • 1980s: The kitchen, including the cabinets, took on a brighter, more streamlined look.
  • 1990s: Cabinets took on the role of a showpiece, as did the entire room.
