Muted neutrals and tasteful 80s-inspired accents were all the rage in kitchen design last year. If you’re like us, then you’re excitedly awaiting the new kitchen trends for 2017! We did a little digging and found a few key elements that designers are expecting will be big in 2017 kitchens. Without further ado, here are the top kitchen trends to watch for in 2017!
The Tuxedo Kitchen
Have you heard of tuxedo kitchens? These are kitchens that are outfitted with black-and-white cabinets. Paired with a frameless and/or handleless cabinetry style, you’re left with a kitchen that looks sleek and modern. But you don’t have to stick with stark black and white if you don’t want to. Zillow Digs’ design expert Kerrie Kelly suggests mixing it up by utilizing two other complementary neutrals. Try navy blue and soft grey or a velvety purple and eggshell white for a softer contrast.
Pantone’s Color of the Year
Pantone is a trendsetter for the interior design and fashion industry. Every year, Pantone chooses a Color of the Year, which is then seen everywhere from inside the home to on the runway. This year, Pantone chose the bright green “Greenery” as their Color of the Year. This color inspires creativity and is symbolic of new beginnings (a great color to begin the new year with, in our opinion!).
Since Greenery is such a bright color, we recommend using it in your kitchen as an accent color and pairing it with complementary houseplants. Consider green curtains for your windows with a few windowsill plants. A green accent wall or a single green cabinet door makes for a bright and optimistic statement for your kitchen without being too overwhelming.
The open concept kitchen has been trending for a while now, and it looks like the trend is here to stay. More and more homeowners are enjoying fewer traffic jams in the kitchen and a more open and airy space from their open concept kitchens. It looks like this trend is one that’s worth investing in, since it seems like it is here to stay.
