Top 3 Kitchen Trends for 2017

If you are renovating your kitchen this year, you may be curious as to what the top trends are. You may wish to incorporate these trends into your remodel to have a trendy space, or you may wish to avoid them to keep your kitchen unique. Regardless, taking the time to learn about kitchen trends can help you to better prepare for and select the materials for your upcoming renovation. Here are three of the top kitchen trends for 2017.

Tuxedo Cabinets

One of the hottest trends for 2017 is tuxedo cabinets. This means that the top and bottom cabinets are two different colors. While the idea started with white upper cabinets and black lower cabinets, giving it the name tuxedo cabinets, it is now used with a variety of different colors. If you love the idea but want something more subtle, select a lighter and darker gray or cream and beige. When using this trend in a kitchen, it is important that the lighter color is always used on top. It keeps the kitchen bright and airy. Your kitchen may seem more cramped if the darker color is on top.

Mixed Metal Materials

Another trend that is expected to be popular in 2017 is the mixing of metal materials. Traditionally, you only see one type of metal used throughout the kitchen. The faucet, cabinet pulls, and lighting fixtures are all made from the same metal type. That is changing this year when a mix and match approach is expected to take over. You can use different types of metal pulls on your cabinets, or use a different metal on your cabinets and light fixture. Regardless, this helps to bring in new colors and textures, livening a kitchen up a bit and making it seem more eclectic.

Hidden Appliances

The last trend that is expected to be popular this year in kitchen remodels are hidden appliances. Appliances will be hidden behind a piece of wood that mimics the appearance of your cabinets. This gives your kitchen a uniform look and keeps everything consistent.
