Kitchen Trends to Look For in 2017
A quick Google or Pinterest search on kitchen trends will turn up photos of all-white decor, granite countertops and natural wood. These have been popular looks for the last 10 years or so, but trends are changing, and we're here to tell you what to expect.
Dark Wood Floors
Especially with light cabinetry, dark wood floors bring a beautiful contrast bring a warm and inviting feel to your kitchen area.
Don't feel tied to one color in 2017. Mixing color palettes in your cabinetry is on trend for 2017. Take this term literally and go for black and white (as in the McNair Custom Home seen above) or choose a softer contrast like a soft gray and dark blue.
More and more homeowners are choosing to hide their refrigerators and dishwashers behind matching cabinet doors, adding warmth to the kitchen where stainless steel appliances gave a cold and industrial feel.
While people will be moving away from stainless steel, copper's earthy tones bring a homey and grounded feel to kitchens, while maintaining a neutrality in your color palette.
New Countertop Materials
Granite is on its way out. Homeowners are opting for materials like quartz, marble, and butcher block when it comes to countertops.
