Is a kitchen upgrade on your to-do list for the New Year? One of the best ways to add value to your home is with a kitchen renovation. Kitchen trends seem to come and go more quickly than other home renovation trends, which makes it easier to pick a couple interesting upgrades for your own home.
Even if a full kitchen renovation is not in the budget this year, there are still a few small changes you can make to breathe new life into your space. Here are the top kitchen trends for 2017:
The future is here with fixtures and faucets that feature automation. There are numerous gadgets and gizmos that make meal preparations and clean up easier. From meat thermometers that sync with your smartphone to tell you when dinner is ready to faucets that work with a motion sensor, these futuristic features will feel like your kitchen has been transported to the year 3017.
Neutral Tones with a Pop of Color
In 2016, we saw a rise in neutral colors for kitchens and bathrooms. These tones evoke a sense of tranquility, which is appealing for most homeowners. In 2017, we’re going to see more neutrals with a pop of color. Grey is going to be a popular choice to replace the crisp white kitchens we saw over the past year. Bright and cheerful sinks will also be popular. Are you brave enough to incorporate Greenery – the Pantone Color of the Year – to your sink?
The foodie generation is taking over! Nothing beats an industrial-grade range for preparing delicious meals for your family and loved ones. These commercial-style appliances are a top choice for homeowners heading into 2017 because of their function and classic style.
Open Concept Shelving
Is there anything more aesthetically pleasing than a stack of perfectly lined-up bowls or plates? Do away with stuffy cupboards and store your dining items on an open shelf. Floating shelves look particularly striking in the kitchen for a clean and symmetrical look.
Opt for Bold Fixtures and Architectural Lines
In past years, fixtures were meant to have an organic look to them. Rounded corners and smooth curves are making way for a new generation of kitchen fixtures. Now, we are seeing bold lines and square faucets making a statement in the kitchen. Replacing your fixtures is one of the most budget-friendly and instantly impactful upgrades you can make; so if you are working on a tight budget, start with shiny, new fixtures.
