In December 2015, we detailed what we believed to be the most important trends in kitchen remodeling at the dawn of the new year. For the most part, we think our forecast was spot on, and that the same design preferences will continue to influence kitchen renovation projects in Chicago and elsewhere for the foreseeable future.
Here’s what we said at the beginning of the year, with some current updates:
Monotone kitchens highlight 2017 forecasts, or kitchens swathed with a single bright ribbon of color. Can you envision it?
Black is the “new white” for kitchens, according to some color gurus, but if you choose white, choose all white and be bold about it — that’s what will lift your kitchen remodel above the crowd and mark you as a style leader!
The dusky, earthy tones of clay and matte finishes rather than fingerprint-prone shiny surfaces are emerging as kitchen favorites for the coming year, just as they are in the bathroom.
A single warning for those who want to be in step with the latest trends — copper and rose gold seem to be on their way out in favor of more familiar finishes that include bronze, weathered brass and and darker stainless finishes.
Color is, of course, personal, and if black seems oppressive to you, opt for unexpected color; even splash on bright color on your pro-style range if it suits you. Pale will not win you raves in the coming year!
Basically, ignore the rules and embrace what feels right for you and your family.
The trend away from the formula kitchen began a few years ago, and we applaud popular dictum that personal space is as important in the kitchen as elsewhere in the home.
