Kitchen Design Trends in 2017

Kitchens, along with master bathrooms, continue to be the most desired areas for home improvement projects. With the current low interest rates and increased property values, most consumers believe kitchen and bath renovations offer a good return on investment. While we believe that any remodel should reflect the style of architecture and location of the home, as well as personal tastes and lifestyle, each years brings new design trends which might be worth considering. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for kitchens in 2017.

Is Gray the New White?

While white cabinets continue to be tops, gray is closing in and could be the top kitchen kitchen color in 2017. And combining cabinet colors is a trendy look that’s holding strong.

Sinks in New Hues

A colorful sink is a great way to pop in a small amount of color in a neutral kitchen or make it more of a focal point by using the same hue in the backsplash.

Architectural Lines

On the faucet front in 2017, keep things clean and minimal by choosing a linear silhouette. The architectural aesthetic will instantly update your look and works  with a wide range of styles.

Bold Light Fixtures

Oversize light fixtures lend a great sense of depth perception and can be used to create drama in a room with a low ceiling.

Marble Mania

This classic countertop material took a backseat to granite and quartz because it is more vulnerable to staining, chipping and fading. But designers and homeowners are drawn by marble’s rich natural tones and timeless style and are returning to the material. (Find out more about what to expect with marble in the kitchen here.)

Waterfalls

A growing desire for contemporary lines accounts for the popularity of waterfall countertops, as homeowners are opting for cleaner cabinet styles, simpler doors and less molding.
