It seems 2017 is going to be full of suprises, with the old farmhouse style kitchen making a huge come back.
This year's favourite kitchen style trend is going to be The Farmhouse, I always said wood paneling would be back. I do see alot of contemporary styles going through our doors still. They are always very popular, especially with all the TV programmes on at the moment, showing sparkly new innovative designs. Custom storage, Stainless Steel and shiplap is also on trend for 2017. The farmhouse style kitchen, with the help of stainless steel appliances, this year has reinvented itself into this fresh looking new design, long gone from the dreary dark colours and into the bright airy clean style for 2017.
Stainless Steel is always timeless. It always comes out on top for our customers when buying their new appliances. Clean, silver finish, but now apparently black stainless steel is set to be a show stopper this coming year. Dishwashers are also on the up this year too. Upgrading appliances is always exciting when designing a new kitchen. This year we are set to see not only an increase on gas ranges, but in new gadget appliances such as pizza ovens. Now I know my husband would love this is our kitchen.
Smarter storage choices are going to be made this year. Homeowners are focusing more on custom solutions in their kitchens rather than off the shelf. Pull out waste or recycling cabinets, cookie tray organisers and of course the most important, wine and bar cabinets. Yep! I can see all those in my kitchen, may need a little help with spatial awareness though, especially for the cookie tray organiser. Girls got to have the basic's, Wine and Cookies!
Worktops are always going to be high priority when choosing your kitchen. Granite is my favourite. This year we are going to see more worktop upgrades. This is becoming more popular for homeowners when redesigning their kitchens. Backsplashes and sinks are also a close favourite for upgrading in a kitchen.
Refreshing your kitchen with paint is always a clear winner, when trying to re-invent your kitchen. A quick and easy refresh is simple and cost effective for all budgets. Colour is always a powerful way of change and I sometimes see customers trying to hard to solve their needs with bright multicolour, when neutral is simple and sometimes best. White, is always popular and this year is no different, although multi-colour is making tracks. especially when it comes to worktops.
Finally in recently reports from the USA, they have indicated that renovating your kitchen is actually good for your health. People had stated that their overall healthier lifestyle was down to them renovating their Kitchen space. Inspired to prepare and cook more healthier meals at home, was a huge factor in the home owners reports. So this year is going to bring a clear picture of bright, fresh, new farmhouse style and healthier kitchen design to renovating customers out there, with a hint of cookie trays and wine, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
