Choosing the right colors is essential to your kitchen remodel project. Your palette defines the overall mood of your space, whether you use calming coastal blues and greens, energetic reds and oranges or back-to-basics neutrals. If you're about to undertake a kitchen remodel, or if you're simply looking for a new way to freshen up your kitchen, read below to catch up on the latest kitchen color trends of 2017!
Neutrals are in and here to stay with whites, grays and taupes remaining some of the most widely requested colors for both kitchens and bathrooms, specifically in cabinetry. The appeal of neutrals lies in their versatility—white cabinets and fixtures can be paired with any accent colors of your choosing, and you can easily swap out accents with the changing seasons. High-gloss finishes are also becoming increasingly popular, as are modern black-and-white kitchens and bathrooms.
Two-toned kitchens are on the rise. Contrasting tones add visual interest and depth to spaces that may otherwise feel completely awash in white or gray. Ground the bottom cabinets by using a darker color, or bring down the ceiling by adding darker tones to your top cabinets. Create a focal point by going with a different color for your island, or add contrast by integrating different cabinet finishes.
For those seeking darker kitchen palettes, bolder, moodier colors like dark blue, black and charcoal remain popular choices.
Mixed materials, both in surfaces and accents, are increasingly common. Metallic finishes are seen everywhere from appliances and fixtures to counters and backsplashes. Reclaimed wood and brick are also popular materials that add a touch of rustic or industrial character.
