2017 Kitchen Trends Exposed!

Anytime is a great time to update your kitchen which will likely update your life too! Here are some of our favorite kitchen updates to make work in your home.

Mixed Materials

These days, mixing patterns, fabrics and raw materials is okay if well executed. Mix the color of your cabinets, light colors on the walls with darker cabinets featured on a large kitchen island. Then use the granite, quartz or marble counter top to incorporate the contrasting colors harmoniously.

Under-Cabinet Lighting

Placing lighting under your cabinets to make counter tops brighter and create ambiance, use to be a chore to find and install. Now it's so much easier to find under counter lighting solutions. Turn off overhead lighting and use this energy efficient solution to highlight your kitchens finer details.

All White Kitchens

White kitchens are all the rage. This color choice lends to modern and traditional kitchens alike. White is a color that makes a space appear larger and any type of flooring pares well too. Alter the mood and decoration by changing it seasonally, adding color with towels, flowers, art and even fruit. 

 

Countertops With A Waterfall Edge

This design element takes the edge of marble or other material in a seamless line running from the countertop vertically to the bottom edge of the island. Install your countertop with a waterfall edge for a chic and sleek design.

Backsplashes With Attitude

This is where your personal point of view can shine. With so many materials to choose from like glass tile, natural stone, mosaic and subway tiles and even copper or metallic sheets or squares. Use complimentary patterns or inset a feature wall or area. Choose the color that coordinate's with your kitchen design plan and work with a professional for a more eclectic or ornate design to insure you have a beautiful outcome.

Copper Accents

Old faithful copper has returned as a design accent. Time to hit the vintage stores or online design retailers offering the latest combo of copper and other metals to use as decoration, as part of a back splash and even for cooking.
