Kitchen Trends Of 2017
Dated: June 20 2017
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home. Whether you're cooking with the family or entertaining friends, have your kitchen looking its best this Summer! Here are some current kitchen trends that won't require a total re-do.

The Farmhouse Sink - Consider installing a farmhouse sink for a timeless kitchen addition. A new sink will not only improve the aesthetic of your kitchen but also the practicality. A large apron-front sink allows for large amounts of dishes and easier clean up.
Storage - Maximize your kitchen’s space with large cabinets and storage spaces. With more storage area you can hide all of your kitchen appliances and declutter your counter tops. This will free up space for cooking while creating a cleaner, sleeker look. Adding a freestanding pantry is also a great way to utilize free space without undergoing a renovation.
Copper Accents - If you are in need of a new appliance or kitchen accessory, consider a copper finish. A copper stove hood or sink can create a bold statement in your kitchen. To incorporate copper on a smaller scale, accessorize with cabinet handles or a sink faucet.
Go Faux - Countertops can cost a pretty penny. However, many companies like Wilsonart are offering realistic stone patterns at a fraction of the price.
Open Shelving - Open shelving is a great way to keep your frequently used dishes and appliances at your fingertips. An open shelf also allows you to accessorize in your kitchen. Display your favorite cookware, glasses or cookbooks for a personal flair.
There is SO much you can do to give your kitchen a little facelift, whether it's for your own happiness, or for preparing to go on the market. Whether you choose to visit Lowe's 8 times and be a "Weekend Warrior" or hire someone to do the work, even the smallest of upgrades can enhance your spaces and add value to your home.
