2017 Kitchen Trends You Won’t Want to Miss!
White has always been a popular colour for kitchen areas. It looks clean, fresh and modern, making shades of white a popular choice for walls and cabinetry. But change is the in the wind, with black and grey beginning to take over in the kitchen. This is particularly true for cupboards, shelves, splashbacks and benches. Then of course there is the black tapware, handles and other kitchen accessories, all of which are out to prove black is the new white.
Everyone loves it and with its retro feel, who wouldn’t? Pressed tin has made a comeback in many new kitchen renovations. Used as either a splashback, a feature wall or as a waterfall bench top, one of the many advantages it has is the wide variety of patterns and colours it is available in.
We all have appliances, but does that mean we need to display them? Designers think not and 2017 will see many kitchen renovation projects undertaken to conceal our appliances in cupboards and drawers. But it gets better because these appliances are designed to function in-situ, so we don’t need to take them out and put them on the kitchen bench to use them.
Tuxedo Kitchen Cabinets
No smartly dressed penguins here, but rather kitchen cabinets which have been constructed with complimentary colours. You may have the above bench cupboards white and the under-bench ones black. Think about also having the outside face of your drawers painted a mid-grey, with the inside panelling a lighter grey. Known as two toned cabinetry, this layered look is set to become very popular.
They’re back! Forget having your benches and cabinetry only around the outside walls of your kitchen. Island cabinets are growing in popularity again and surprisingly enough, it is curved oval models which are preferable over rectangular shaped ones.
Stainless sinks will always have a place in the hearts of Kiwis. However, sinks are now being manufactured in a range of colours, with designers and homeowners alike loving the new choices available. Matt black to match the new black handles and tapware is a popular choice, but in a pure white kitchen, a sink of lime green with a matching splashback brings a pop of colour to brighten up the room.
While robots taking over our kitchens, to prepare and serve our meals is unlikely to occur in 2017, there are other automated kitchen features available. Taps which turn on when you place your hand or a glass underneath them are perfect for sticky handed chefs. Sensor lighting when you move throughout the kitchen is also on the cards, great for illuminating the areas where you are working without you needing to touch a light switch.
