You may have noticed it more around the holidays but the kitchen tends to be a main gathering space for get-togethers and even everyday family time. Typically cabinets take up a significant part of your kitchen and if you have an open floor plan you might even be able to see them from the living room, dining room and maybe even from the front door. If they are old and outdated they could throw off the look of your whole first floor. If this is the case and you are looking to remodel your kitchen, now is a great time. The start of a new year means lots of exciting new design trends and we are going to show you some interesting concepts that we think are going to be a big deal in 2017.
There Needs To Be Space for Technology in the Kitchen
It’s hard to deny that for most of us, technology has become a huge part of our everyday lives. This year more and more homeowners will incorporate charging stations or, for the home cook a shelf or unit where they can display their tablet while reading a recipe. If you are planning an upgrade it’s important to consider how you use technology in the kitchen and how to best plan for it with your remodel.

This year many homeowners will be focused on including the perfect hiding spots for all of their kitchen appliances, both big and small. The days of crowded counters and shiny stainless steel appliances are coming to an end. Homeowners are now hiding large appliances behind cabinet doors and creating more “peek-a-boo” storage spaces in their kitchen designs.
Cabinets Are Changing in Shape & Color
Homeowners are channeling the past and going back to the basics when it comes to cabinet styles this year. Think updated country, British basic and shaker cabinets. Simple yet elegant designs that are not overly decorated, but feel authentic and substantial. As for popular cabinet colors, this year it’s all over the board! White is still a very popular color, gray is also expected to be a very hot color this year. In addition to that, more colored cabinets will be making an appearance. Bruised greens, toasted reds, and washed blues are quietly elegant yet still interesting enough to avoid being dull.
Going Back To Nature
More and more homeowners are moving towards more sustainable practices and pieces, and kitchen trends reflect this positive direction. Expect to see more earth tones and materials – like wooden butcher block counters, wicker furniture and accessories, and the use of cork and clays for flooring and backsplashes.
