Are you thinking about remodelling your kitchen this year? If so, you’ll want to read up on the hot trends taking over the kitchen remodelling niche.
At Lottare, we’re excited to see how design trends dictate buying trends, but what we’re more interested in is seeing how you decide to change your kitchen. Check out this 8 kitchen remodel trends before you invest in any kitchen products this year.
Stainless Steel is In—But Keep it Low Key
Metal is a key design feature in kitchens this year. Despite being a modern metal, stainless steel will change from being front and centre to a background feature. You might even see details like bronze faucets and metallic hoods. Think accent instead of a focal point, with your stainless steel metal features.
Open kitchens have recently become popular with home builders, and homeowners are now starting to join in on the fun. Contractors often find themselves knocking down walls for consumers who want to see well into their kitchen. Consider this trend if you want to encourage family time, but be sure to keep the small details like cabinetry in mind when you do.
Au Natural Color
Gone are the days of bright yellow kitchens (thank goodness). 2017 is all about muted, natural hues that blend seamlessly into a variety of appliances and metals themes. Whether you add a coat of paint to your cabinetry or want to switch the colour on your walls, go with natural hues to stay on trend.
Quartz is In!
For a good long while, Quartziano has offer quartz products, and we’re happy to say that 2017 will be the year for quartz. It will become the hottest countertop material, closely followed by granite. Even in our store we’ve noticed a significant uptick in quartz product purchases. Check out our selection to find something perfect for your new kitchen.
Mixed Hardware Finishes
Forget about the monochromatic stainless steel design features. Homeowners in 2017 are opting for appliances and accessories that have mixed metal hardware fixtures. An eclectic, but a wholly unique kitchen, is the final result.
No more modern tools. 2017 will have homeowners searching for hidden devices that easily blend into their overall design theme. They provide the perfect added touch for your kitchen, without forcing you to spend tonnes of money on large stainless steel appliances.
Diverse Kitchen Lighting
No more recessed lighting or overhead kitchen lamps. Homeowners are now reaching for complex lighting arrangements that are 100% original. Natural light is always highly sought after, but bringing the outdoors in with unique lighting is all the rage. Think lit up cabinetry and series light fixtures. Those will lead the way in 2017.
More families are creating kitchens that are designed to entertain. This means integrating unique features like beverage centres. Keep your family and friends happy with a brand new beverage centre that has everything you need to treat the right way.
