According to a report published by Kitchen & Bath Design Trends for this year 2017, the most trending designs when it comes to kitchen and bathrooms are contemporary style and transitional design. The report is done yearly through a compilation of surveys done by the members of the NKBA or National Kitchen & Bath Association. The report came after the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show which was held in Orlando between 10th and 12th of January. The report features the trend for this year that all home improvement retailers will witness for 2017.
In terms of the trend in the bathroom, retailers will see less of the traditional styles and focus will be given to new styles such as transitional and contemporary. Some designs that are gaining popularity are Asian Fusion, Mid-Century Modern and Shaker. For the color scheme, the most widely used for the bathrooms will be gray, whites and off-whites. For younger professional designers, they are more inclined to use purples, violets and blue in their color scheme.
One of the top favorites is the undermount sinks while more and more designers are using the trough sinks. When it comes to fixtures, the trend for 2017 is white while bone or bisque is already considered as outdated. The finishing mostly preferred for faucets are gold and brushed brass. The upcoming styles for faucets are those with designer colors.
For the kitchen, styles such as simple door, clean lines and built-ins are growing in popularity. Countertop material that is widely used is quartz while granite is the second on the list.
For storage solutions in the bathroom, the most common are wood vanities and cabinets for linen storage. A growing number of designers are also using open shelving as well as floating vanities. Homeowners have less affection towards whirlpool tubs. According to the survey conducted by the members of NKBA, over half of them have already stopped using whirlpool or tub during bathroom remodeling as of last year. No matter the trend for this year, stylish vanities with beautiful basins are still one of the preferences of homeowners.
