2017 Home Design Trends

January 27, 2017No comments

Yes, it’s true.  Here we are at the end of January with one more “listicle” blog post of predictions and trends for this year.  BUT, we spotted a few ideas that we had to share with you to keep in mind when you’re planning home improvement projects this year.

More color, More places — If 2016 was the year of while and stark, then 2017 will be the year of pizzaz!  But before you cringe too much, we are not completely swinging back to avocado green kitchens.  This year, look for bright and bold color as accents to the whites and neutrals we all love.

Patterns/Textures — Many people have said that the reason white kitchens have been so ubiquitous for so long is because that’s a classic look.  Even if your kitchen is small with little or no natural light, white cabinets make it feel that much bigger and brighter.  With that, many folks are slightly gun shy about straying too far from a look that’s sure to outlast a ‘trend.’  Fear not!  That’s where the third dimension comes in.  Look for ways to use tasteful textures for a tiled backsplash.  White and off-white can combine in a playful pattern on fabrics and painted surfaces.

More Metals — Their elemental qualities make metals’ colors and textures instantly timeless.  Metallic backsplash tiles make a huge appearance at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in early January 2017.  In addition to tiles, keep an eye our for more metallic accents such as outlet and light switch covers, cabinet hardware, and all sorts of accessories!

These trends were originally spotted by our friends at construction2style. Read more and watch their video at: http://construction2style.com/blog
