2016 Ends, 2017 Trends


What’s Trending for Kitchens in 2017?

Okay, if you’re into cars, then you’ve probably already seen the 2017 Ford GT. And if you’ve got about $400,000 burning a hole in your pocket, this might be a good place to put your dough. That is if you’re one of the lucky 500 who have been selected by Ford to purchase one of the first models.

This 600+ horsepower behemoth was a show stopper at the Detroit Automobile Show and has car aficionados drooling. But while your future kitchen might not get exactly the same reaction, there are some definite trends shaping up for kitchen design for 2017.

One of the hottest trends for new homes and kitchen remodels is what is called “Tuxedo” kitchen cabinets.

Tuxedo cabinets are so-called due to the two-toned paint, such as a sleek black panel with a white or silver trim. Tuxedo cabinet designs also include top and bottom cabinet doors of different yet complimentary colors.

Gone for 2017 is the stainless steel appliance. Instead of a shimmering stainless steel look, appliances are hidden and the exterior of the unit looks just like the Tuxedo cabinet right next to it and easily fit into the color scheme of the kitchen.

And speaking of appliances, homeowners are also opting for contrasting colors instead of a monochrome look.

Appliances and accessories aren’t fitting the stainless look but now carry multiple finishes such as gold, copper or pewter for example to accent the cabinets and backsplash.

You can find lots of ideas and color combinations but the trick is to get rid of the old ideas and usher in the new kitchen trends for 2017. These new designs are definitely out of the box but are so very attractive it’s difficult to pass on this new kitchen trend for 2017.
