Recipe for the Perfect Kitchen
Progressive Properties – Full Service Real Estate Solutions Company
Curb appeal gets them in the house, the kitchen makes them stay…or the interior anyways! Renovating a kitchen begins with a lot of research – what colors do you want, what is considered welcoming, do you want bright or subdued, what about an island? Things can get crazy real quick, so we’ve done the hard part for you! We’ve gone through and found the kitchen trends you’ll be seeing in 2017.
If you’re simply changing the color of cabinets, opt for a bright color! You’ve probably seen light grays and navy blues which are great options for the kitchen that is leaning towards a more contemporary feel while maintaining crisp. Not into the dark tones? Go for a mint or light lavender!
A new countertop is the perfect way to dress up your kitchen! Move away from the basic marble and granite and choose a trendy, new option such as butcher block, quartz, or even concrete.
New color isn’t the only way you can bring energy to your kitchen. Invest in some bold fixtures for your cabinets to add excitement and a modern feel.
Don’t be scared to let your herbs or vines take over your kitchen. Eating organically is becoming more and more realistic, so grow your own herbs while giving your kitchen a simple, yet urban, feel. Perk of climbing plants? Less decorations needed throughout your space.
Make a Splash
Switch up your backsplash to a fun new pattern. You can never go wrong with subway tiles but geometric patterns are 2017’s obsession! Add a complimentary cabinet color and you’re on your way to HGTV.
