Kitchen Trends for 2017

2017 is turning out to be a really great year for kitchen design. You can expect to see a greater demand for space efficiency, natural materials, and multi-use areas. This, in turn, is inspiring a lot of creative uses for traditional kitchen areas. Here are a few things you can expect to see more of in kitchens this coming year:

Deeper Drawers: Deep drawers are in. They provide a lot more efficient storage space for pantry items, bakeware, pots and pans, and whatever your heart desires. Organizing stores have caught onto the trend and are now creating organizers specifically for deeper drawers. So not only can you have more storage space, but it can be organized as well. Drawers are also more accessible for older generations, as it is easier to bend over than squat in order to reach what you need. As more people are living in multigenerational households, demand for universal design has soared.
Workhorse Islands: Islands in the kitchen are no longer an island unto themselves. Islands are becoming more multipurpose to accommodate a wide range of activities in the kitchen. Gone are the days of one person working away quietly tucked into the kitchens. Designers are becoming more aware of the mixed use activities in kitchens. Children do schoolwork, people work together to make meals, guests socialize and adults like to wind down with a glass of wine and a good book, just to name a few things that happen in kitchens these days. The workhorse island comes with amenities for all these things. Some have wine racks, drawers or shelves, and double sinks so they can pull double or triple duty for whatever activity comes their way.
More Natural Materials: Expect to see more wood in everything - drawers, countertops, floors and cabinets. Stone has also become popular. Slab backsplashes are becoming a thing. People are loving the durability and cost effectiveness of natural materials, as they think long term about staying in their houses and reducing the need for maintenance in their busy lives.
