Kitchen Design Trends for 2017

kitchen-design-fb
For homeowners, remodeling a kitchen can not only help increase the home’s resale value but also contribute to a healthier lifestyle, according to the recently-published Houzz 2017 Kitchen Trend Survey. The survey questioned more than 2,700 homeowners who have recently undergone a kitchen renovation or are in the process of one, to get a better understanding of design and lifestyle trends that we’ll be seeing in kitchens over the course of the next year. Here’s a recap of what they found:

PROJECT TRIGGERS

43% of respondents said that they undertook the renovation because they could “no longer stand the old kitchen” while 40% said that it was something that they always wanted to do and finally have the means, up 3% from the previous year.


LIFESTYLE CHANGES

More than 33% of homeowners said that their kitchen renovations contributed to an overall healthier lifestyle. 49% saw an increase in family time, while 41% ate healthier by cooking at home.


LARGER, OPEN SPACES

More than one-third of responders said that their renovations included increasing the size of the kitchen, with 51% of them opening up to other rooms and 20% more open to the outdoors.


BUILDING MATERIALS

Aesthetic and durability were considered the two most important factors for selecting countertop and flooring materials, across all age levels of the respondents. For millennials, the cost of materials was third, while ease of cleaning was third for older generations.

For aesthetic purposes, the most popular materials were marble for counters and wood for floors; granite counters and porcelain flooring ranked highest in terms of durability.


UPGRADES

The three most upgraded features in the kitchen were:

countertops

backsplash

sinks

 

The top built-in features receiving upgrades were:

cabinets

island

breakfast-bar

COLORS

This year, the most popular color for walls was gray, with 26% of the vote (an increase of 4% over the previous year). White was the most popular color for cabinets, with 42% of the vote (also an increase of 4% over the previous year).
