Kitchen Design Predictions For 2017

With 2017 just around the corner, here are our top kitchen design predictions for 2017!

Classic Colour Palettes

Classic colour palettes revolving around white and neutral shades will continue to be popular. Features such as black or copper accents and timber will add interest.

A Focus On Sinks

Gone are the days of the standard stainless steel sink.  From black and copper sinks to oversized bowls and clever sink accessories, we are predicting sinks will become a much more important kitchen design feature in 2017.   See our previous blog on tips for selecting a sensational sink.

Clever Cabinets

Storage is king in your kitchen and we are sure savvy home owners will be looking to clever technologies on offer by Hafele and Blum to ensure maximum functionality.  Think corner drawers, under sink pull outs, vertical storage, box drawer systems and user friendly technology such as Blum servo-drive.


Re-looking at Laminate

Renovating your kitchen on a budget doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style.  While an engineered stone benchtop might be the stuff of dreams, there are some stunning laminate designs now available that will help you to achieve a designer look without the price tag. We’re predicting modern laminates will be revisited in 2017 by kitchen renovators looking for an affordable yet stylish look.

Maximising For Entertaining

The old saying “the kitchen is the hub of your home” has never rung more true.  Increasingly, renovators are looking to create a kitchen design that promotes entertaining and social interaction.  From integrated wine fridges to island benches and outdoor kitchens – the kitchen hub will be high on the renovation list in 2017!
