4 Kitchen Trends For 2017

4 Kitchen Trends For 2017

I always get asked by people who are thinking about updating or renovating their kitchen:

  • “What are the latest trends?”
  • “What do I need to include in my project so that my project will last and be current for many years to come?”

While most people don’t want to be too trendy in an area as expensive and as permanent as a kitchen, everyone does want to have the latest and greatest features and style that will keep their kitchen looking fresh and up to date for many years to come. This is especially true if they are thinking about resale value in a few years.

1. Appliances

Colored appliances are in and old plain stainless steel is out. This is a good way to add some color and design to your kitchen.

                                                                     

2. Dark Floors

If you like light colors for your cabinets or walls then go with a dark floor. Dark floors can make your room pop with white cabinets. Like this kitchen:

3. Laundry Rooms

Everyone knows that kitchens and bathrooms get the big remodeling dollars, but many homeowners are seeing value in making every space look great. Homeowners know they could spend a lot of time in the laundry room so why not make it a place that’s both beautiful and functional?

4. Satin Brass

Brass finishes have been making a comeback in recent years, cherished for their ability to bring shiny golden tones to space without the high price tag. Satin brass finish is transitional and can compliment a number of styles!

With so many new options for 2017, there’s no right or wrong way to express your personal style. Let us know what trend you will bring to into your home for 2017.
