2017 Kitchen Trends
This has to be a top pick for most, if not all, of our clients when making the right choice for their kitchen countertop. It looks just like granite but it's a much more sustainable option. Quartz replicates the look of stone and granite but requires absolutely no sealing at all. Although quartz is known for its pricey cost, we recommend choosing this countertop option so that you can get the best value for your money. It's made up of 97% quartz and 3% binder to make it an effectively stronger stone for a long lasting finish.
Throughout the last few years we have seen a major uprising in this new industrial-home-kitchen trend. While discussing all potential alternatives our clients have pointed out they appreciate the rustic feel of the industrial look. The trend is characterized by the rustic metals, copper, stainless steel, pipes, bricks, concrete, plain furniture, simple decor, and minimalist style. The simplicity in this look is what stands out the most. When presented with a project of this nature, we like to think of it as merging beauty, function, and minimalism.
Less is More
Trends representing wealth have evolved from the bulky, loud, and flashy norm to the simple aesthetic. Now a days the simpler you renovate, the better the renovation looks. What better place to start than in the kitchen where you spend the majority of time cooking and with loved ones. We recommend incorporating handleless cabinets, simple countertops (the less clutter the better), storage solutions to make the most out of your space, and technology integration for appliances.
Choosing the right color for your design is one of the most important steps when planning the renovation of your kitchen. Trends have been rising in what we call monophonic colors. The most chosen colors in the recent months have been off-white, white, grey, and black. This goes back to the beauty in the nature of simplicity. Accompanied by these neutral colors we also recommend accent colors that stand out from all the neutrality to add pop to the design, edginess, and modern aesthetic.
This is not to say that colorful kitchens are not in style, on the very contrary, the right color combination can make or break a design. Colors can be tricky but with proper guidance we can help you design a kitchen that will give new meaning to the expression “wake up & smell the coffee ☕️”!
