Kitchen Trends for 2017

granite countertopWhen you’re beginning a kitchen remodel project, you might want to start with the kitchen countertops. There are several new design trends that you’ll see in 2017, some that have a few bright colors while others are unique in the overall design idea. One of the things to keep in mind with kitchen countertop designs is that you need to have something in place that blends with the rest of the room and that gives you the space that you need for preparing and serving food or eating if you have stools at the counters.

 

Kitchen countertops will be eco-friendly in 2017. You’ll see kitchen remodel projects with materials that include recycled paper, fly ash or other types of composite materials that resits stains and scratches. Natural granite will also be another one of the kitchen countertop designs that you’ll want to look for in 2017. Lighter colors will be a big hit as they can make the room seem open and larger. Granite is durable and heat-resistant, making it an ideal surface for serving foods in pots and pans so that you don’t have to pour the contents into a bowl.

 

If you’re looking for a warm appearance in the kitchen, then consider a butcher block design. This is a design that features a butcher block nestled into one area of the counter. It’s ideal for cutting items for meals so that you don’t have to get out a cutting board each time. You do need to make sure the surface is wiped clean when you’re done preparing your food as the wood can tend to absorb liquids. However, the design does give a timeless appearance and often matches other designs in the kitchen. Laminate countertops are an option if you want the look of granite without spending the money. They are easy to clean, but they aren’t as heat-resistant as granite. Concrete countertops will also be a trend as you can get the material customized in the shape and design that you want. This is where the brighter colors will come into play as you can paint the concrete in almost any shade that will match the rest of the kitchen.
