2017 is just around the corner, and designers are already preparing the freshest styles and defining the trends for the year. Kitchen design is much more than a functional process; it is a creative expression displayed in your very own home. Asa Cabinets has highlighted some of the predicted upcoming kitchen trends for 2017 in this quick guide.
2016 has been all about the sleek, high polish looks which fit best in the contemporary segment. Designers created a less vibrant color scheme using glass (clear and frosted), stainless steel, and other non-wood materials. This upcoming year, home builders and owners will be looking to use a more natural palate of cabinetry materials with the natural grain showing.
Great wood materials for achieving this natural look are cherry and maple, both of which with gorgeous natural patterns and colors. One way designers will look to maintain the contemporary appeal with these materials is to utilize metal and exotic knobs and adornments.
Countertop trends over the last ten years have advanced quite a bit. New technology allows home owners to possess the beautiful design and quality traditionally associated with expensive materials. Growing in popularity, and sure to be a hit in 2017 – wood countertops which bring the wow factor to your kitchen. Laminate patterns and finishes allow you to achieve a high end look at a low cost and will continue to be a popular choice as well.
This is one area of kitchen design which has seen major trends over the last few years and is the easiest way to add character to your kitchen in a cost-effective way. Three designs stand out from the crowd for this upcoming year:
Stony Gray – Coordinated mosaic featuring soft blues, grays and light hints of other natural tones.
Traditional Brick – Available in thin recreations, brick is a beautiful choice that designers enjoy for many uses.
Classic Marble – Depending on how large of a back splash you are creating, classic marble can be a great material for spicing up your kitchen in 2017. This growing trend allows you to bring the beauty of marble to your kitchen without breaking the bank.
2017 is sure to be an exciting year for interior design. Stay tuned for more information on growing trends in the space. Interested in redoing your own kitchen? Visit our website or call our team today at (248) 624-7400, option 2.
