With the end of the year approaching, now is the perfect time to start planning your 2017 home remodel. And what better way to welcome in the new year than with a brand-new kitchen that not only looks amazing, but includes all the design aspects and features you need to make cooking and entertaining a breeze. If your goal is to stay on the cutting edge of kitchen remodeling design in 2017, it’s crucial to research the latest trends in kitchen remodels. Here we’ve collated a short guide to what’s up and coming in kitchens in 2017, and which styles we’re leaving behind in 2016!
Cabinet doors and closed-in kitchen spaces are a thing of the past! Open spaces and free shelving are the kitchen storage trend for 2017! This trend has been fairly popular over the past few years, with many kitchens using an open shelving design above bench top level. This keeps your kitchen open, light and airy, and creates the illusion of more space while providing ample storage where you need it.
The 2016 trend of blending natural elements into residential and commercial spaces continues in 2017. Integrate greenery into your 2017 kitchen remodel with a small bench top kitchen garden of herbs and micro-greens, or incorporate planters or even a greenery wall into your kitchen remodel. The effect brings beauty, brightness and life into your kitchen space, not to mention a fresh addition to your meals in the case of edible plants.
Two Tone Color Choices
Tuxedo and two-tone kitchen cabinets are going to be on trend for kitchen remodels in 2017. While darker colors have been more popular in the last year, combining these deeper tones with a lighter color, especially contrasting black and white, provides a stylish and eye-catching effect. Two-tone cabinets can feature related colors, such as two pastel colors, or they could be a striking contrast of a lighter and a darker color. Add style and distinction with two tone cabinets in your 2017 kitchen remodeling.
Sleek European Cabinetry
Kitchen cabinets are an essential for storing away your pots and pans, and in 2017 it’s all about the sleek European look. Appliances that fold effortlessly into cabinetry are a must for busy kitchens, and European design knows how to maximize the space you have with hidden features and additions. While the seamless look of integrated kitchen cabinetry is the current style, try adding a touch of your personal taste and style with unique handles and drawer grips.
Along with your sleek cabinetry, appliances, mixing stations and kitchen fixtures that are hidden in cabinets, draws and alcoves are ideal for your 2017 kitchen remodel. While fridge, microwave and other appliances with finishes that match your kitchen are going out of style, keeping it as compact and seamless as possible is the name of the game in 2017.
If you’re planning a kitchen remodel next year, keep these kitchen style and design trends on hand as a guide to your perfect kitchen remodel.
