We’re in a new year, and there are all new trends to talk about. Dark wood storage is out, and tuxedo cabinets are in; along with sleep wood paneling and hidden appliances. It might sound like it’s straight from a movie, but these are the biggest trends that have been forecasted for 2017.
Kitchen Remodeling Trends
Homeowners want more from their home, and open plan kitchens that have been designed thoughtfully and blend with the rest of the home’s aesthetic are a must. It’s no longer about treating each room as a unique design experience but instead opting to have a functional and welcoming home that maintains a continuous style throughout. Kitchens must be stylish enough to entertain in, while also being highly functional for everyday life.
Check out these trends before you make any decisions on your kitchen remodeling project- you may want to incorporate some of them, especially if you’re looking to sell shortly.
The Big Trends
Hidden Appliances: while there’s nothing new about hidden devices, they are becoming all the rage. People are turning their backs on stainless steel appliances because they leave the room feeling industrial and cold. Instead, they’re opting for hidden tools that fit seamlessly into the design scheme. They offer a nice touch for buyers who may be looking for a kitchen where they can spend a lot of time.
Tuxedo Cabinets: you can mix up the color palette in your kitchen with tuxedo cabinets. It doesn’t have to be black and white either; you can mix up other colors like soft gray and navy blue to create a softer look.
Mixed Hardware Finish: more homeowners are moving towards accessories and appliances that have various finishes like pewter, gold, and copper, striking stainless steel. The final result is a unique and eclectic space.
Wood Paneling: it sounds like it’ll take you back to granny’s kitchen- but opting for white shiplap provides a clean and modern finish.
Short Cabinets: ditch this look and instead opt for taller cabinets. Not only do they make your kitchen look bigger, but they make it feel brighter, too.
Speckled Granite: there is no limit to your countertop choices now- it’s no longer just an option of granite- you can choose from marble, quartzite, soapstone, and more. Many of these options are easier to stain, thus easier to maintain.
Darkness: 2017 is the year of bigger and brighter- dark accessories, woods, and paints are on the way out.
