The kitchen operates as the heart of the home – a space where we cook and enjoy food while socializing with friends and family – so, understandably, you want your kitchen to look its best while being both welcoming and functional. Even if you aren’t looking to give your kitchen a complete facelift, just a few simple updates will help keep it on trend in 2017.
Gray Is the Way – According to leading manufacturers in the kitchen industry, while white cabinets remain at the top of the list, they won’t be for long! Experts are counting on gray cabinets to become the most popular color in 2017. Gray cabinets provide a versatile look that channels not only Old World and modern, but also traditional and contemporary. Find more information here.
Quartz Counters Are the Tops – The nonporous quality of quartz and its resistance to heat are just a couple of reasons why quartz countertops are becoming more popular. This beautiful stone will provide resistance to spills and scratches, making it a wonderful choice for families or those who enjoy entertaining. Upgrading to natural stone can add a touch of splendor to the kitchen for only a modest increase in price. Learn more here.
Colorful Sinks – Similar to kitchen cabinets, sinks are beginning to transition away from the traditional white and stainless steel options that we have seen in years past. Sinks that add a pop of color are an excellent way to spice up a kitchen. Apron-front sinks are another trend that provide a modern farmhouse look while adding a splash of color.

Wave of the Future – As we begin to see more and more tech options introduced into the kitchen, automated features are gaining popularity. Touch-activated faucets make it easy for cooks with dirty hands to turn the water on and off, and can even help conserve water, as they make it simple to turn off the water between kitchen tasks.

Storage Solutions – For homeowners searching for additional kitchen storage, manufacturers are offering a variety of solutions. We are beginning to see multi-tiered drawers to maximize space, cabinet drawers with deep pockets for the ability to hold larger pots and pans, and taller cabinets that can make a small kitchen look bigger and brighter.
