Popular Cabinet Colors:
The shades you decide to use in a kitchen will add character to your cooking area; although there are hundreds of color schemes to choose from, the two that we expect to be popular in Southern Colorado throughout 2017 include:
Shades of Grey
Grey cabinets are a popular choice in 2017 kitchens, with the most in-demand shades ranging from deep charcoal to light grey. If you need a second color to add to your cabinetry, brown, yellow, and blue all match exceptionally well.
The Return of Black & White
Black and white is a classic color combination that (up until recently) lost its spot in the limelight. In 2017, however, it was likely that many Colorado Springs homeowners upgrading their kitchen cabinets will embrace the simple sophistication of this classic two-toned color scheme.
Even in slower-paced towns like Colorado Springs, people are always pressed for time. As a result, “functional” cabinetry is becoming increasingly popular in remodels, and new home builds alike.
If you’re not familiar with the term, a functional cabinet is a blend between traditional cabinetry and modern technology. Many home builders throughout the Front Range (such as Saint Aubyn and Journey) are already building functional cabinetry into their models by adding cell phone charging stations to countertop drawers and cabinet undersides.
The “mountain rustic” kitchen theme is one of the most popular (and long-standing) design trends in Colorado. Consequentially, rustic cabinetry with stained wood finishes will continue to be a popular theme throughout 2017. Unlike previous years, however, dark-colored stains (ranging from grey to hazelnut) will be particularly popular due to their ability to match other traditionally rustic colors like iron and beige.
Mixed metals are a nation-wide trend that will continue into 2017, but that doesn’t mean you have to add new stainless steel appliances to your kitchen! Instead, add small metallic touches to your cabinetry with unique accent pieces like copper knobs to your cabinet doors.
The 2017 designs that inspire Colorado Springs kitchen cabinets will be a mix of classic and contemporary themes. Traditional looks (like black and white color schemes and rustic mountain themes) will be in high demand, while contemporary styles (like metallic features and tech-savvy cabinets) balance out the classic trends that are re-emerging this year.
