7 Kitchen Remodeling Trends to Look for in 2017

7 Kitchen Remodeling Trends to Look for in 2017

The new year comes with a desire to refresh yourself and your home. After consulting with our expert remodeling team, here are a few kitchen remodeling trends you can expect to see in 2017.

Kitchen Remodeling Trends for 2017

1. Mismatched Cabinets

While there's nothing wrong with a monochromatic kitchen, using multiple cabinet colors or styles in the same room adds personality to your home.

3 Ways to Mix and Match Kitchen Cabinets

  • Make base cabinets different from upper cabinets
  • Use a complementary paint or stain for the island
  • Choose a contrasting color for the range hood

Because picking cabinetry can be a difficult decision, it's helpful to get professional advice. Our designers know what combinations look best together and can help you get the perfect custom kitchen.



2. Taller Upper Cabinets

Would you like your kitchen to look bigger and brighter plus increase storage space? Ditch shorter cabinets and install taller ones. Consequently, installing kitchen cabinetry all the way to the ceiling is both functionally and visually beneficial.

3. Matte Finishes

While metallics were big in 2016, next year matte finishes will be more in demand.  Matte finishes go with every texture and color and don't clash with the rest of your decor.

3 Reasons You'll Love Appliances with a Matte Finish

  • Coordination is easy because it complements your favorite cabinet and flooring finishes
  • Smudge-proof and resists fingerprints, so it's simpler to keep clean
  • Warmer, low-gloss finish isn't disruptive to the flow of your kitchen

4. Hidden Appliances

Many people are skipping standout features such as shiny stainless steel and overhead range hoods for hidden appliances that easily blend in with their home's overall design scheme.

If you love a built-in look, there are refrigerators so shallow they line up perfectly with lower cabinets. Unique articulating hinges allow them to fully open. Integrated models can also be paneled to match surrounding cabinetry.

Also, instead of using a large range hood, modern kitchens can remain visually open with a downdraft ventilation system. Once you're ready to cook, it pops up to ventilate the space.

5. TV in the Kitchen

Whether it's to catch the news with your morning coffee or to follow along with your favorite cooking show, a strategically placed television is an attractive addition to kitchen remodels. In the photo below, a small TV fits nicely beneath upper cabinets.

6. Formal Dining Rooms

More people are choosing to keep their formal dining rooms instead of converting them into offices or media rooms. For ease of entertaining, it's important to locate the dining space near the kitchen.

7. Pantone's Color of the Year: Greenery

Greenery is a yellow-green shade that's symbolic of new beginnings. You can incorporate this vibrant shade into your decor in big or small ways.
