With the year coming to an end, we decided to take a look back at some of the popular kitchen design trends from 2017. There was definitely a nice variety of newer ideas and traditional inspirations making a comeback. Here’s a few of our favourite trends from the past year.

Even though we’re seeing a re-emergence of more traditional and industrial inspired cabinet designs, but there’s no doubt that the popularity of flat fronted cabinetry reached a new peak in 2017.
With the changing landscape of kitchens becoming a more socially oriented and open space, the increase in popularity of thinner benchtops made perfect sense. It can have a huge visual impact and also provide a practical application in providing a seating area.

We’ve seen some gorgeous use of natural woods in kitchens this past year, whether it was the primary material in the kitchen design or to complement or accentuate other features. Natural woods bring a nice warmth and comfort to kitchens which is how kitchens should always feel.

Monochrome kitchens have been trending for the past few years but we’re definitely a rise in the approach and use of different shades of tones of greys rather than the more traditional whites and blacks.

Aside from just monochrome tones, contrasting colours were very popular in 2017, really allowing for some strong and bold kitchen designs. White marble with royal and deep blues or wooden cabinets with yellow gold tapware, the options were wonderful.

Bold Tapware & Accents
2017 also saw a rise in more unique and bold colours and finishes for tapware, from yellow golds and rose golds to matte blacks and coppers. It was also the little details in the kitchen that made a difference including cabinet handles or decorative accents.
We’re looking forward to seeing what trends the New Year is going to bring for kitchen design and the interior design industry as a whole. We’re also excited and pumped for new projects and ideas we have planned. If you’d like to the start the New Year with a new kitchen, don’t hesitate to contact us for a complimentary consultation.
The team at Total Kitchens wishes our friends, family and our clients a wonderful and Happy New Year! Cheers to 2018!
