Finding You Design Style: Kitchen Trends of 2017Learn
Whether you’re designing your kitchen to match the decor of other rooms, or planning your whole home’s look around the kitchen, you can make it a beautiful reflection of your personal style. Even if you aren’t interested in gutting your kitchen and starting from scratch with a new design and layout, there are a few options that have become increasingly popular in 2017.
Gray is the New White
Thanks to shows on HGTV like “Property Brothers” and “Rehab Addict”, our cabinet manufacturers say that white cabinets continue to be #1 selling cabinet. But gray is the new color they’re betting on to break white’s top spot. This kitchen using Cabico pairs soft gray cabinets with charcoal brush stroke and bronze stained upper cabinets, showcasing yet another kitchen trend — combining cabinet colors is a trendy look, and it’s holding strong.
Maximizing Cabinet Storage
Kraftmaid cabinetry offers a wide variety of storage options. Upper cabinet options include spice racks, reverse-a-shelf kits and tiered shelving. Not to be forgotten, the ever growing number of options for base cabinets include trashcan pullouts, rollout trays, cutlery dividers, even an old fashioned bread box. By using cabinet inserts like these, it maximizes the storage capacity without compromising aesthetics.
Adding a Bit of Flair
Looking at 2017 as a whole (so far), it has been a year of accessories. We often recognize that people design with trends while maintaining something neutral enough for the masses to love, keeping in mind the “resale”.
But, this year, that is all out the window! Literally.
As seen here, modifying the window to be a pass through to the exterior living space it a bold move. But, boy does it pay off. It is both a functional piece with a hang over bar for holding refreshments, as well as dirty dishes that need to be sent back inside.
