Kitchens are the heart of a home, so it is understandable that you want them to remain up-todate
with today’s latest trends. A kitchen is not just a room within a home. For many people it is
a place where memories are made, where people spend time together, a place that stirs up
holiday dinners, birthday lunches and surprise party endeavors.
Maybe you are interested in fully remodeling your kitchen, maybe you are building a brand new home, or perhaps you are just looking to freshen up the look. Upgrading the important details in a kitchen can revive a look and feel to your home.

We are going to share with you the top 5 kitchen renovation trends of 2017.
The Neutral Color Palette
It is no surprise that gray and white have been a huge hit this season. The light and fresh color palette is simplistic and soothing, as well as sophisticated. We have seen this trend growing immensely and the best part is that there are so many options.
Try doing a light gray wall with sleek white cabinets and marble countertops. You can also try painting your cabinets a soft gray and brightening up your walls by making them white.
Gray and white are neutral colors, so adding an accent color just gives your home a pop. We suggest a blue or deep red.
Easy Cabinet Functionality
We are all aware of the endless selection that there are of kitchen cabinet knobs. From a solid silver, to a traditional gold, the options are available.
However, this year cabinet manufacturers changing the way that the cabinets and drawers function and are opting out of knobs. Cabinets are now easy to open and close because they fold up and out of the way with a single touch.
Bold Lighting Fixtures
This year is all about making a statement. There is only so much that can be done with a neutral color palette and style without your home looking blah.
Try spicing it up and adding a statement piece to your kitchen. Bold and sophisticated lighting decor deliver a whole new luxurious appearance. Oversized light fixtures give your home a sense of depth perception and draw excitement to the average ceiling.
Live In The Future
The future is here to make your life easier. If the technology is available to us, then we might as well use it to our advantage. As many of you may be aware of smart homes, let us introduce you to smart kitchens. People are incorporating automated systems into their kitchens.
For example, a hands-free faucet is ideal for homes with small children or busy cooks who do not want to make a mess. Sensor activated lights are another form of modern technology that have become largely popular.
The Industrial Look
Modern kitchens are still popular, but incorporating the rugged texture, rustic wood, exposed pipes and stone surfaces are making their way into one of the top trends of 2017. In some areas across the United States, there is a higher demand for this style than anything else.
Although many homeowners believe that the industrial look can appear as cold, there are several ways to add warmth. Combining a neutral color palette with the industrial style can make the kitchen brighter, and therefore, homey.
