4 Kitchen Ideas to Choose From for an Update in 2017

March 1, 2017

Kitchens are an exciting area of most homes. Kitchens and the extensions of them tend to be warm and inviting; it’s where meals are made and time is spent together with family and friends. In 2017, you can plan to make your kitchen even more enjoyable by deciding to give it one of the following updates.   

Add a Bar

Go bigger than a bar cart with an actual bar in 2017. This sort of addition is great for frequent entertainers and those who love crafting up cocktails at home. It can add a unique look to your kitchen, as well as make it more inviting. A bar doesn’t have to be about drinks 24/7. Bar seating offers more room for everyone to sit and enjoy a snack, or even a meal in a less formal setting.

Go Retro With Your Appliances 

If you’re struggling to find a way to add color to your kitchen, consider an appliance update. A retro stove or refrigerator in a refreshingly bright and unexpected color have the potential to work wonders in less traditional kitchens. This is a way to make a bold change without a large amount of work. 

Give in to Tile 

Tile has become increasingly popular in kitchens today. Whether chosen for a backsplash or to cover an entire wall, tile creates a bold accent. Within this trend there are many different options to choose from — you can go with the classic white tile or choose something with different visual interest, such as tiles with a hexagonal shape. There are many ways to add tile in order to make it fit with the current look of your kitchen. 

Include a Popular Color

If you’re not quite ready to make the commitment to tile, you can turn to color to make an impact on your kitchen for less. For those wanting to go bold, consider “Greenery,” Pantone’s color of 2017.
