Fortunately, the kitchen trends of 2017 are taking that importance into consideration by offering clever storage solutions, minimal aesthetics, and a wide range of other design options meant to make your everyday life easier.
For the time being, long-time popular stainless steel is taking a backseat to sleek and chic black appliances. And kitchens far and wide are getting an extra dose of sophistication as a result.
In addition to contributing more visual interest with their unexpected colour, black appliances are also surprisingly easy to clean. And any trend that combines form and function is okay by us!
Bright and shiny metals aren’t necessarily out, but their more subdued, brushed counterparts are definitely in.
If you’re looking for a simple way to update your kitchen, you just found it. Incorporating brushed brass hardware is a super easy and economical way to revamp the whole room in almost no time at all.
Now, this is the kind of trend that will make your space look better and your daily life easier, so there’s basically no reason not to get on board.
Lots of people are becoming privy to the sanity-making benefits of custom storage, and kitchens everywhere are happier for it. Everything from produce to silverware to pots and pans can be made more organised and accessible by incorporating this simple solution.
Improving the quality of daily life is a common thread among 2017 kitchen trends, and the popularity of glass cabinets is no exception.
Whether you go with brushed glass or transparent, incorporating these cabinets will not only look great, but it will improve the functional flow of your kitchen. It’s also an added incentive to keep those cupboards organised.
(Fifty Shades of) Grey
Move over beige, there’s a new neutral in town and it just so happens to carry more styling capabilities than neutrals of years’ past.
Opting to go with the highly versatile grey as your kitchen’s dominant colour will pave the way for endless decor options. And it also happens to pair perfectly with the black appliance trend we mentioned earlier.
With the rise of Scandinavian style, it’s no surprise that hidden appliances are popping up in the trend forecast.
Choosing to hide your major appliances is a no-fail way to minimise visual clutter and create a sense of peace and tranquility in the hub of your home.
Speaking of Scandinavian style, the minimalism so characteristic of it is taking over all kinds of kitchens, and they’re all tidier for it.
If you feel like you spend too much of your day straightening this space, take a page from a minimalist’s book and pare it back, leaving only the essentials. Anything extra can be put into storage until you need it.
Proving that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to style and design, mixed and matched finishes are getting the trend treatment, and we’re kind of in love.
Layer up copper, silver, and brass to create a look that’s as elegant as it is dynamic.
You can go the glass cabinet route, or you can really show all your cards by adopting the open shelving trend.
Give your prettiest dishes the presentation they deserve by letting them do double decor duty on an open shelving unit.
As technology moves full steam ahead, more and more of us are craving the healing energy of Mother Nature. And the organic materials trend is a stunning reflection of that.
Adding elements like wood, stone, and cork into your kitchen will create an aesthetically warm atmosphere that invites people to comfortably congregate after a long day.
If you like the impact a statement wall can make, then you’re going to love what a statement floor can do. Particularly in the kitchen.
Opting for tile in a bold pattern on the kitchen floor will eliminate the need for extra decor that’ll clutter up your workspace while it infuses a ton of personality into your design.
