2017 Design Trends for the Kitchen
Embrace the new functionality.
Modern and contemporary kitchens mostly have edgy kitchen cabinets designed for functionality and storage. Innovation soars to a new level of cabinet designs and can now be opened with a touch of a button! What a functional and impressive change for cabinet doors and drawers.
Keep it neutral.
Neutral hues and tones allow a homeowner to personalize the kitchen space to his or her personal style. It’s easier to add a burst of colors if the overall kitchen design palette is in soft creams, whites, browns, and grays.
Decorative tiles are making headlines.
Add a touch of flair and interest in a monochrome room or small areas in the kitchen using decorative tiles. It makes a great decor accent to give a brand new look to your old kitchen without having to upgrade much else.
Gray is the new white.
Gray has grown as the most popular choice of color in interior design this year. Due to its minimalist and calming appeal, many designers predict the color gray will remain on the top choices of colors and kitchen design trend well beyond 2017.
Soft curves and more round shapes.
One of the rising kitchen design trends is having a kitchen island in oval or oblong shape. It gives a kitchen a distinct style and openness to the overall space. Not only do you keep your kitchen kid-friendly without sharp edges, but you also take your design up a notch!
Some homeowners have embraced the idea of open shelving in their home. People will likely mix this trend with cabinetry to boost appeal and functionality. One of the main advantages of open shelving is the ability to showcase beautiful china, serving pieces, and beautiful dishware as decor accents.
