Kitchen trends for 2017

The kitchen is the beating heart and social hub of every household. Whilst renovations can be costly, great kitchens have the power to sell a home. It's time to impress with the latest kitchen trends of 2017.

Dreaming of that perfect kitchen? Find a great cash out loan with Lendi.

50 shades of green

white-kitchen-with-wooden-and-green-details Green gives every household a splash of freshness from summer through winter. White marble with green veins throughout are the top trend of 2017. However, if your budget is a concern, a white timber bench top paired with royal green cabinets can create the same earthy effect. You can even spruce up your kitchen with plants to add an extra element of liveliness.

If you’re feeling brave, green can even be coupled with gold accessories to make them really pop. No matter what you do, make sure you steer clear of lime green! As a rule of thumb, the darker the better.

Rustic chic

If rustic is more your vibe, use brickwork to create a texture you can see. This trend made a comeback in late 2016 and works extremely well if you’re a minimalist at heart. Open brick and patterned tiling looks incredibly modern and chic with dark timber cabinets and bench tops.

If this is more to your taste, open light fixtures and copper decorations can really make this kitchen look expensive and custom made.

Hide and seek

luxury-kitchen-with-island To the untrained eye your kitchen may look pretty appliance-less, however, hideaway appliances are the next big thing in kitchen trends. Cabinet doors that hide dishwashers, microwaves and fridges with ease work best in modern houses inspired by the cleanliness and hard edges used in bauhaus designs.

The best things come in threes

This applies to most things in life and taps are no exception. While every sink is fitted with a hot and cold tap (these built into one fixture is best), what your kitchen needs is a drinking water tap. This is a fixture which dispenses filtered chilled water instantly. Forget the clutter of water bottles in your fridge, this tap is a space saver and extremely practical, especially when it comes to entertaining.

Patterned tiles

hallway-through-the-kitchen These have made a massive comeback, taking over the Milan design show in 2016. Forget bare walls or hang paintings, patterned tiles are an artwork in themselves. They look chic as a feature wall or behind a stove, just don't overdo it! Style is simplicity done well. Hate cooking? When your kitchen looks this good it’s a pleasure.

Financing your renovation shouldn't be a headache. Lendi makes it simpler.
