5 New Kitchen Trends for 2017
If you’re an addicted reader of homeware, and renovation magazines then you’ll be aware that each year there’s a list of trends that appear when it comes to renovating or creating a kitchen. Each year, you noticed that many spreads in magazines share a common theme, along with similar styles when it comes to choosing backsplashes, tiles, countertops or kitchen appliances. Sometimes you even like a certain trend but fear that it might go out of style the next year, and simply be a fad that’ll give zero value to your home in the end. Fear not here’s a list of trends that we believe are here to stay, and won’t be going out of style anytime soon, nor do they look tacky.
Maximizing Space & Storage
As times progress, apartments, and homes are becoming smaller and smaller unless you’re ready to cash out your life savings to splurge on a massive home with a lot of square footage. And with small kitchens comes a lack of storage; a trend that we’ve seen happening quite a lot this year is high-quality storage solutions. People are maximizing the space that they’ve got by installing smart and high-quality pantries, that are able to store a lot of product or creating organized shelves where you’re able to store as many pans, pots, and dishes as possible.
Whether it’s your fridge, or oven, or even small appliances. Colorful is in, and it’s here to stay; pops of color truly bring life to your kitchen. Colorful appliances are chic and youthful and they’re for sure a statement piece that will brighten your kitchen. Some say that the colorful appliances trend is a trend that had existed before, with the retro SMEG fridge in red, or their famous union jack fridge. Either way, we’re sure this trend is here to stay, and what better way to embrace it than having a few pastel, or neon appliances.
Industrial Style Kitchen
Industrial kitchens have been always considered as stylish and modern. The use of black rimmed factory windows and sliding doors gives a spacious and modern feel to your kitchen. It allows natural light to pour into the room. Industrial kitchen is a style that’s progressed in recent years, specifically in the Scandinavian countries. This modern and minimalistic has made it to other countries in recent years, as it is functional and easy to maintain. Industrial designs often combine different materials, transforming a regular kitchen into an innovative space.
Colorful Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops have always been in style, they’re a great option when you’re thinking of installing marble countertops. It’s a great substitute as they’re easy to maintain and clean; in 2017 we’ve noticed a variety of different quartz countertops in a variety of different colors appear. People are branching away from the typical white marble countertops, and are now dabbling more in colors. Quartz countertops are heat resistant, as well as spill and scratch resistant making them a great option for cooks, and families.
Monochromatic Color Palette
Monochrome is in, so stock up on neutral paints such as white, gray and black for your kitchen. There’s a variety of ways, of combining these colors together to create a modern and minimalistic kitchen. Monochromatic has always been in style, but this year there’s been a spike in demand when it comes to the color gray, therefore adding another color to the monochrome trend. Neutrals allow you to invest in colorful appliances, plants and demonstrate a contrast when it comes to design and décor.
