Kitchen Design Trends for 2017

kitchen-design-trends-2017

The kitchen is the heart of the home and whether you are a gourmet or not, you want your kitchen to look stunning! If a kitchen renovation is on your to-do list, take note of the hot kitchen design trends for 2017.

Grey in the Kitchen:

Although white is still a top choice for home owners, grey is a close (very close 2nd).  We started seeing this trend about 3 years ago in the trade shows but now the grey kitchen cabinet is much more mainstream. If you are a bit hesitant, opt for a soft and warm grey tone for the kitchen cabinets. It’s still timeless and neutral but it’s a great alternative to white.

Farmhouse kitchen sink:

Also known as an apron sink.  This sink style has been around for a long time but it has really gained popularity with the whole revival of the ‘farmhouse look’ trend.  This style of sink comes in all sizes and configurations (single bowl, double bowl…) but it comes in other colours and materials.  Plus you don’t have to necessarily have the farmhouse look in your kitchen – you can have a clean contemporary style or an industrial style kitchen – it is a very transitional sink.

Tuxedo kitchen:

We are seeing a lot of tuxedo kitchens in 2017.  Not familiar with this term? A tuxedo kitchen is a kitchen with dark lower cabinets and kitchen island cabinets (in a black like a tuxedo but we are seeing lots of variations like navy, dark stained wood and charcoal grey) and white upper cabinets.  This adds some visual interest to a kitchen and in our opinion looks best in larger kitchens. 

Bold Kitchen Light Fixtures:

Statement lighting is everywhere and we mean in every room in the house and the kitchen is no exception.  We are seeing lots of larger and more interesting light fixtures in the kitchen – over the island, the eat-in area and in the kitchen itself.  There are so many styles of lighting – so there is something for everyone! Get creative with colour, size and shape – we love this classic lantern pendant in pink and gold – so unique!

 

Mixing kitchen counter tops:

We are seeing clients get more and more adventurous when it comes to making selections in the kitchen.  It can be tough to narrow down your selections – so don’t! Opt to have 2 different counter tops in your kitchen – 2 different stones, a stone one and concrete one, a stone and wood one….the combinations are endless.  This is a great way to really make your personality shine in your kitchen!

 

Navy in the kitchen:

Navy in the kitchen right now is where grey was about 3-4 years ago – just emerging – but we are seeing it more and more in magazines and TV shows, so it is only a matter of time until the navy kitchen is the new grey kitchen! We love it mixed with brass or gold hardware (which is also starting to catch on).  A navy kitchen looks incredible with just a simple shaker style door – because the colour is so deep and rich you really don’t need a lot of detail. 

Interesting Kitchen Back splash:

For a while it was all about the glass tile mosaic back splash and then more recently the subway tile but now we are seeing all different shapes and colours – even patterned tiles! We are definitely seeing people take more ‘risks’ this year when it comes to tile.  Whether it is a herringbone layout, a hexagon shape or a pattern tile – back splashes are a lot more interesting this year! (We are seeing this trend in bathrooms, too)

 

What do you think of these kitchen design trends ?

    Love these trends! I have a few of them in my white a gray kitchen. I have been thinking about updating my light fixtures and this gave me some great inspiration.

    gREAT TIMING FOR THIS POST AS MY HUSBAND AND i ARE CONSIDERING REMODELING OUR KITCHEN. we ARE LEANING TOWARDS A WARM GREY FOR THE CUPBOARDS aS WE LIKE THE WARMTH AND TIMELESS LOOK THAT COLOUR eMITS. i NEED TO WIN THE LOTTERY, THOUGH, AS THERE ARE SO MANY OPTIONS AND BELLS/WHISTLES AVAILABLE NOW; IT IS DIFFICULT TO NARROW THEM DOWN 😉 .

    i’M LOOKING FORWARD TO FOLLOWING YOU AND COMING BACK TO CHECK OUT THE REST OF YOUR BLOG.

      Oh I know how to feel about winning the lotto – there are so many amazing projects that I want to tackle but don’t necessarily have the budget to make them all happen. I love a soft and warm grey kitchen – I designed one in a real estate office about 6 years ago – they all thought I was crazy (at first) but they love it and now it’s all the trend. We also installed a charcoal glass subway tile for the backsplash – it’s so lovely! when it comes to bells and whistles – think about your lifestyle and what’s actually useful for you. Personally I like pillow soft close which is pretty common now, I like so open shelving (if space allows) or some glass door cabinets, a wine rack, pot and pan drawers – I feel those a basics that add to a kitchen and your lifestyle. Recycling ‘stations’ are also very popular right now! Thanks for reading!

    I really wish i would have seen this before we finished our kitchen! I love the use of bold colors and navy in the kitchen. Also noticed all the subway tile and am so loving that!

      Nice, Nicole! You can’t go wrong with a white kitchen. We are helping a client paint her natural oak kitchen white – it’s going to be an incredible transformation! How are you liking the change so far?

    I love all these designs!! I definitely need a farmhouse sink though. I think I would combine that with a grey kitchen.

      I miss my farmhouse sink (we had one in our last house). We might add one here but it’s pretty involved as we need to change some cabinets etc….and we are debating if it is worth it. Grey kitchens are lovely – I have always loved them – I’m happy to see that many others are embracing the grey kitchen!

    What is the name of backsplash tile in the last picture?

    13 . 08 . 2017

      It’s a very cool tile – I cannot find the exact product but if you like this style – it is called infinity trellis wall tile (you can get this style in a floor tile as well) – it’s beautiful!
