It is widely accepted that a stylish, well-designed kitchen can help sell a home. A chic, practical and aesthetically pleasing kitchen can help make or break a sale or a rental contract and generally improve the living standards of a home. If you are looking to sell or rent a property this year, then modernising the kitchen could be a shrewd move. To ensure your new kitchen is at the height of fashion, take a look at the following kitchen design trends for 2017.
From visible metal pipework to exposed brickwork and minimalist furniture, industrial looking kitchens will remain fashionable during 2017. Go to town on combining a range of materials, including wood, metal, stone and concrete. With their clean lines and minimalist style, industrial kitchens are popular in Scandinavia, and are continuing to dominate kitchen fashion in the UK.
Worktops without clutter!
Continuing the minimalist style of an industrial-themed kitchen, clutter-free worktops are being hailed as another key kitchen design trait of 2017. Worktops that are clutter-free not only make a more practical place to prepare food and cook, but they also create the illusion of more space, which is particularly attractive in small kitchens, in which space is limited.
Bring out the monochrome
What was considered dull and uninspiring not so long ago has become a leading kitchen trend for 2017. Combining monochrome tones of black, white and grey in a kitchen will create a stylish and contemporary look that’s likely to impress those viewing a property to either buy the home or rent it out.
The linear look
Linear style kitchens are expected to make a comeback this year. This modern kitchen design typically has cabinets hung on one wall, geometrical lines with rectangular shaped and the room accented with a modern table and chairs for a stylish place to dine.
Our homes are becoming smarter, as more and more gadgets designed for convenient living continue to take centre stage. The kitchen is no exception, and in 2017 we are likely to see more and more Bluetooth-enabled kitchen appliances being implemented into the overall design of the ‘hub of the home’.
