Check out our favorite kitchen trends of 2017, and let us know if your favorites made it on the list!
Kitchen colors have been recently trending towards grey and earthy tones that result in simple yet stunning, neutral colored kitchens. However, the typical stainless steel appliances and accents will clash with these colors making copper accents the favorite alternative.
Copper accents mix well with the popular earth tones of 2017. Copper is also very versatile in how it can be incorporated. You can add copper tones to your kitchen in many ways including cabinet handles, oven hoods, and decorations.
Black appliances have grown in popularity, especially in smaller kitchens! A stainless steel appliance is a good option for many kitchens but tends to overpower the rest of the kitchen instead of complimenting it. Unlike stainless steel, appliances in shades of black or slate blend well with most kitchens and balance overly bright ones.
When it comes to kitchen style black appliances can give your kitchen a sophisticated and, if designed properly, vintage look. If you've been thinking about designing a vintage style kitchen with modern amenities then black appliances will give you the best of both worlds.
Brighter Colors in the Kitchen:
Do you want to add a splash of color to your kitchen? If yes then you're in luck because colorful additions to the kitchen have made a huge comeback in 2017. An easy place to do this is your sink!
Kitchens have moved away from the common stainless steel or classic white sink to sinks of blues, greens and reds to add some pop and color to their kitchen! You can also turn a splash of color into your kitchen's theme by pairing your sink and backsplash colors together! This creates a colorful kitchen that's sure to stand out in all the right ways.
High Quality Storage-Effective Cabinetry:
In the modern kitchen, it's important to have clear counter spaces at all times. Especially when entertaining friends and family. That's why you need cabinets built to store all of your kitchen necessities while still being organized and accessible. Install cabinets that take advantage of their entire storage space and nothing less.

Smart technology has become an important kitchen staple. A kitchen is so much easier to run and costs significantly less to do so when you have appliances that manage their own heat, electric and water use.
Smart kitchens use anything from smart appliances that can change and manage themselves to apps that work with appliances and help the cooking process go smoother. Depending on how much technology you want in your kitchen, your current kitchen could be upgraded to a smart kitchen with a few small additions.
