2017 Cabinet trend
Whether you are upgrading your current home or renovating a new place, we have prepared a cabinet style trend for inspiration. Many of the trends reflect color, style shifts and tendency of using smart functions.
Grey is the new White
Wondering what color to paint your cabinets? The kitchen industry's leading manufacturers say that while white cabinets continue to be tops, gray is the shade they're betting on to break white's top spot. Grey color has become increasingly popular these years, and it doesn't like the trend is going down at all.
Connected smart device has been rapidly developed in contemporary homes, or everywhere. Thanks to IOT, kitchen is not an exception. More homes are embracing smart appliances, lifestyle robot "Echo" and other wifi/bluetooth connected devices.
CLEAN LINES AND SUBTLE DESIGN
To fulfill long term design flexibility, cabinetry designs are migrating to a simpler look, using subtle details. This trend is proving modern cabinetry to be a popular choice in homes today.
'The main trend in colour right now is towards grey and earthy tones with homeowners opting for simple, neutral coloured kitchen designs that will stand the test of time. In 2017 shades of grey in cabinets and doors will continue to be in demand and we will also start to see more copper coloured handles, accessories and appliances coming through as people try to find alternatives to stainless steel and black to complement their cabinets.' - LochAnna Kitchens
The industrial look
'Industrial design is a style that has grown in recent years, particularly in Scandinavia, and the trend looks set to continue in 2017. Characterised by details such as exposed brick, exposed pipes, rustic metals and minimalist furniture, the trend is inspired by factory spaces.' - Max-Top
Homeowners continue to see open floor plans as the way to go, developing a need for transitional cabinetry designs to increase the positive flow throughout each room. Using cabinetry with complementary designs and colors can create an original transition into a multi functional area, such as a large bath adjacent to a dressing room or a kitchen that opens up into an inviting family room.
Maximize kitchen storage
'Designers still currently prefer to hide small kitchen appliances, therefore food processors and kettles will find homes in tall larders, as will a preference towards deep drawers and intelligent high quality storage solutions. Both style and practicality will be increasingly present as kitchen designers look to create the wow factor.' - LochAnna Kitchens
