2017 is right around the corner, and before you know it, it’ll already be here. Next year’s custom home trends have already started rolling out in showroom floors across the country. Check out these four trends taking over in 2017 to gain inspiration for your next project, and get the ball rolling on making your upgrades today!
Black is the New Black
While white kitchens will probably always be on some level of popularity, matte black will be taking a strong lead in kitchens of 2017. Paired with shiny chrome and finished steel, your black kitchen doesn’t have to feel dark and gloomy; just make sure to keep the clutter to a minimum, pack the room with plenty of windows and bright white LED lights, and this new trend will be a crowd-pleaser that is sure to bring the wow factor.
“Nature Calls” for Natural Bathrooms
This trend stems from millenials who are all about wellness. These new bathrooms have ‘wellness areas’ designed with an plethora of natural materials like stripped hardwoods, smooth stones, and jagged rocks, paired with clean porcelain for a very rustic yet elegant combination. If you have the space, introduce some greenery on an indoor trellis wall. It’s what the cool kids are doing!
Brass and gold have already made their way into our homes and our hearts, but brushed and polished nickel and silver are joining the party. There’s even one more addition that no one expected to see thrown in the mix – white plaster. All of the above mixed together is what you’re going to see popping up in places you wouldn’t expect, like the bedroom, living room, and dining room.
To go along with the already popular open concept floor plans, flex rooms are being added in. These rooms provide adequate space but with less defined purpose leaving the homeowner with the flexibility to create a room one way, then completely change the purpose of it in a few years without a complete makeover or a costly renovation. Pretty smart!
