It’s 2017!! Happy New Year!
Are you ready for what’s in store this year? Have you considered maybe changing a bit of your house, such as your kitchen, and try what’s up and coming? Have you thought about replacing your tiles, your sink, or some of your appliances? If still undecided, let us help you with this quick run down of kitchen trends this year.
From Design Necessities, patterned tiles are most likely to dominate kitchens in 2017. From its limitless array of options, you can be sure to find patterns that will suit your preferences or your kitchen, especially if you are not renovating as a whole and just changing the tiles. There are also many tile brands to choose from, such as the Saudi Ceramics.
It is predicted that many would still stick to the classic hues of black and/or white, but 2017 might add a little bit of color to accentuate. Top colors include the lively ones but in middle tones, such as yellow, orange, blue, red, and green. Moreover, the use of vertical and horizontal lines is anticipated to complement kitchens painted with single color.
Since living in small places is becoming more and more common these days, we will see a “huge boom in people buying smaller appliances for their homes,” according to Harris Interiors. Among the appliances that would be made smaller are premium cookers, kettles, and microwaves giving more spaces to its users.
Looking back, we have seen the addition of Wi-Fi hotspots to several appliances, such as Samsung and GE’s refrigerators, washing machines, and television this year. 2017 will surely follow suit because it would offer more automation to more appliances, such as your oven.
Still in the topic of automation, expect more of hands-free faucet next year. As proposed by Moen, this new kitchen creation is best for homes with small children that are not tall enough to reach the handle or cooking times when you have sticky hands.
Design is a vital element of any kitchen but so is functionality. With this, in 2017, we will see more and more hydraulic and easy-close doors for the cabinets, such as that of Blum’s. Some of which could be moved automatically with just a touch of a button that would be perfect for kitchens where space is an issue.
We have been accustomed using the basic white or stainless steel sinks, so this trend could be surprising to many. First appearing in the 1970s, colored sinks will resurface and rule this coming year. This is a great way to accentuate the kitchen without having to add any other decors or materials perfect for minimalist kitchens.
Change is one of the several things that is hard to welcome. But if change would bring or add beauty and improve how we live, then it is safe to say that change is our buddy. So are you ready to change your kitchen with these 2017 trends? Let me know in the comment section. 🙂
