Top 2017 Kitchen Remodel Design Trends

IMG_3721.jpgOver the last 50 years or so, the traditional kitchen design has changed drastically. Today, kitchens push past the limits of traditional design and usage. Kitchens in the 1950s and 60s were small, functional, and often only had enough room to fit the necessary appliances. Families tended to eat in a dining room or living room back then. These days, kitchens are quite larger and often incorporate multiple eat-in areas including kitchen tables and islands with built in bars.

As kitchen designs continue to evolve, they incorporate more and more elements of interior design to match customer’s preferences. This has resulted in a rise in kitchen remodels and kitchens continue to lead the way as the most-requested room to remodel in a home. 2017 has brought along a plethora of design trends for bathrooms, living rooms, and kitchens. Below we’ve outlined six of the hottest items and themes that are leading in kitchen remodel design trends.

6 Top Kitchen Remodel Design Trends

  1. Shaker-Style Cabinet Doors
    Shaker-style cabinet doors are simple cabinet designs that often feature a wide raised border with recessed, flat wood in the center. Cabinet doors in the Shaker-style continue to be a trend in modern kitchen designs. This is due to the versatility of the design. Shaker-style cabinet doors can blend in a modern, contemporary, or traditional style kitchen seamlessly.
  2. “Green” Lighting
    Environmentally-friendly lighting is another trend that continues to top the charts of popularity among home remodelers. Technological advances in LED lighting is making it more accessible and user-friendly for home owners. Due to these advances, kitchen remodeling companies, like Savvy Home Supply, are seeing more frequent implementation of LED lighting in kitchens. LED lighting is even being installed below cabinet fixtures, under countertops, and into toe kicks. Additionally, “green” LED lighting has the benefit of lasting for years and the possibility of being linked to smart technology for even more accessible use.
  3. Kitchen Islands
    Islands are becoming more and more popular each year. Homeowners undergoing kitchen remodels want islands incorporated into their design more and more often. This is in part due to the increased functionality that islands provide. Modern kitchen islands go far being being a surface for cooking and cleaning in this day and age. Now, kitchen islands also work as charging stations, bookshelves, and areas to store appliances. Some of the most popular countertop materials for kitchen islands include: glass, granite, butcher block, or even mixed-media materials for homeowners who want to add a unique touch.
  4. Cabinet Paint vs. Stain
    In general, stained cabinets are still popular; however cabinet painting services are on a rise. White stain continues to be the most popular finish for cabinetry in the South, but in the Northeast, painted cabinets in white, beige, and gray are becoming extremely popular. When a homeowner decides to paint their kitchen cabinetry instead of replacing it they are not only saving thousands of dollars, but also signing up for a faster remodeling process that yields just as impressive results.

  5. Bold Color Choices
    One of the easiest ways to switch up your home’s style is with a coat of paint and homeowners, as well as remodelers, are turning towards bold color choices now more than ever. Why? A lot of the bold color choices dominating the market, today, are due to new driving forces. Spirituality, cultural flux, the need for self-expression, and nostalgia are just a few of the forces driving homeowners and remodelers, alike, to turn to bold color choices for cabinetry, walls, back splashes, and appliances in the kitchen.
  6. Cabinetry Capabilities
    Kitchen expansion over the last 50 years has allowed for more appliances to make their way into kitchens. It has also allowed for more cabinetry and with those extra cabinets comes extra capabilities. Right now, floor-to-ceiling cabinets that hide refrigerators are extremely popular, as are cabinets that hide icemakers and pantries. Cabinets with added functionality are also rising in popularity and certain companies, like Rev-A-Shelf, have a wide variety of cabinet applications to choose from.

All in all, today’s home designs are much more contemporary from the outside facade to the kitchen designs to the basement uses that homeowners choose to apply. The growing number of millennials buying homes has only helped modern trends rise in popularity. Most kitchen remodel designs these days are sleek, modern, big, open, and functional while also giving off a very minimalist vibe. These 2017 trends and features can all be captured during a remodel as they can in a new build – if you have the right team of professionals to help you.
