Guess which kitchen trend is making a comeback in 2017

In a couple of weeks, we’re bidding 2016 goodbye. Another year begins, bringing with it new trends in home living.

Ready for what’s in store next year? Maybe you’ve considered changing a bit of your house, like your kitchen, and just spice it up a notch. Maybe you’ve considered replacing your tiles, your sink, or some of your kitchen appliances so if you’re still undecided, let us help you with this quick run down of kitchen trends that we could see this 2017.

Patterned Tiles

From Design Necessities, patterned tiles are most likely to dominate kitchens in 2017. From its seemingly limitless array of options, you’re sure to find patterns that will suit your preferences or your kitchen, especially if you’re not looking to do a major renovation as a whole. There are just so many tile brands to choose from such as the Saudi Ceramics.

Color

It’s 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 a lot of the liveliest colors, but only 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.

Appliances

Since living in small places is becoming more and more common these days, we will see a huge boom in people acquiring smaller appliances for their homes, according to Harris Interiors. Among the down-sized appliances that people would look for are premium cookers, kettles, and microwave ovens, giving more spaces to its users.

Looking back this year, we have seen the addition of Wi-Fi capabilities to several appliances, such as Samsung’s and GE’s refrigerators, washing machines, ovens, and televisions. It’s only natural that whatever tech we have is only going to be improved and more powerful so 2017 will surely follow suit offering automation to more appliances.

Now that we’re on the topic of automation, expect more hands-free faucets next year. As proposed by Moen, this kitchen creation is best for homes with small children that aren’t tall enough to reach the handle or when you have hands too grimy to touch the faucet knobs.

Cabinets

Kitchen design is all about functionality. This 2017, we will see more and more hydraulic and easy-close doors for cabinets, like Blum’s. Some of these cabinets could be moved automatically with just a touch of a button, perfect for small kitchens.

Sink

We’ve been accustomed to using basic white or stainless steel sinks, so this trend (while not exactly new, just making a comeback) may be surprising to many: colored sinks. Colored sinks first appeared in the 1970s and will definitely rule again next year. This is a great way to accentuate the kitchen without having to add other decorations or materials. It’s perfect for minimalist kitchens.

We’re all understandably resistant to change. But if change would bring or add beauty and improve how we live, then change is good. Waht other kitchen trends are you looking forward to this year? Any other predictions? Share us your thoughts!
