It is often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s not only the place where food is prepared and enjoyed, but it’s often the place for families and friends to connect.
With all this emphasis on the kitchen, having a gorgeous, modern kitchen is becoming more and more important. Here are the top 10 kitchen trends for 2017. Which is your favorite?
1. Gray Cabinets to Top White?
Although white will never go out of style, gray cabinets and other earthly tones are starting to make an appearance. For 2017, gray cabinets may top white. Which do you prefer?
2. Pops of Color
Whether the kitchen island is a nice blue or the bar stools are covered with yellow fabric, having pops of color integrated throughout the kitchen is becoming a more popular trend. Just remember, that this is a “pop” of color. Be careful to not go overboard. You don’t want an entirely purple kitchen. All things in moderation right?
3. Bold Fixtures and Appliances
Have your kitchen fixtures make a statement. Install large lights that add to the pop of color or generate a conversation all on their own. Range hoods are another fixture making a bold statement in 2017. Find ways to make these fixtures and appliances fit your theme yet stand out. Have fun with it!
4. More Storage
Storage is becoming more and more important. Whether you use pull-out shelves, or double-layered drawers, there are many different ways you can add more storage to your kitchen. Open shelves are another big trend.
5. Quartz Counters
Watch out granite, quartz is coming through! With various options in colors, quartz counters are becoming the new “must-have.”
6. Farmhouse Sinks
Farmhouse sinks have always been loved, but they’re making an even stronger comeback. Their look says “trendy,” while their size says “functional.” And with various options and colors available, you can have a little extra fun with your kitchen sink. Make this part of your kitchen something to be envied.
Adding texture is a trend coming up in 2017. Texture can be implemented with the backsplash, counters and fixtures. It gives your kitchen some dimension while giving it that “trendy” look we all want from our kitchen.
8. Copper Accents
Having metal accents are big right now, especially copper. Copper can be incorporated with cabinet knobs/handles, range hoods, lights, faucets, bar stools, etc. There are so many different ways you can add metal accents to your kitchen!
Flooring is always important. Dark wood or “statement tile” are having a big say in 2017.
Like with any trend right now, there’s not really an exact mold to fit into. Personalize your kitchen to fit you! What do you like? You want to make sure your kitchen is functional, yet beautiful. Because it is the most important room in your home, you want it to be a place that people enjoy. How will you do that?
