Kitchen and Bathroom Trends

The Latest Trends and Styles For Kitchen and Bathroom

This month House Doctors would like to showcase our guest blogger, Wendy Dessler, the super-connector with OutreachMama and Youth Noise NJ, talking about the latest trends and styles for your soon-to-be favorite rooms in the house – kitchens and bathrooms.

The Latest Trends and Styles For Kitchens and Bathrooms

The kitchen and bathroom in your home are the most used rooms in the house. They are the two rooms most likely to be shared with guests, and the condition of these rooms has a major impact on the value of your home. Whether you want to remodel or just upgrade with modern sinks and vessels, you will love the latest trends for 2017.

Using quality products is always a wise investment for your home. This year will focus on uniqueness, quality, and visual impact. Kitchens and bathrooms will be colorful with lots of texture and classic beauty. Efficiency is also a focal point. The savvy homeowner will take advantage of every inch of space their rooms have to offer.

Faucets and sinks

Mixed metal faucets are huge this year. Traditional big store faucets are boring and do not give the look of luxury that a quality, mixed metal faucet does. Designer colors are still carving their niche in the market, while brushed brass and gold faucets are here and making a bold statement. They will be available in custom design. Contemporary is the keyword for 2017.

White sinks are trending as are colored sinks. However, bone or bisque is out. There are a few color trends for bathrooms and kitchens to choose from:

  • Black and white
    • This is a clean and classic combination that looks clean and crisp and makes the room look larger
  • White, gray, and off-white
    • This trend is anything but dull. Consider mixing different hues of these colors and combining textures for a bold and interesting look
  • Blue, violet, blue-grey, and purple
    • Younger and more hip designers are gearing toward these colors. The styles that are most popular are Asian Fusion, Shaker, and mid-century modern

More about color

Stainless steel is moving over for colored appliances. Kitchens will have a lot of color, texture, and depth. Granite and quartz countertops will dominate the market.

Vessels / Sinks

Forget old vessels. Your mother’s sink will not do in your beautiful and modern kitchen. Instead choose a unique Italian-made vessel designed to bring elegance and charm to your room and leave your guests in awe.


Wood replacing metals will trend for 2017. You will see a lot of wood handles, trims, and even sinks and vessels made of wood. Wood is beautiful and comes in many colors and styles. While using wood for cabinets, shelves, handles, and accessories is easy enough and the right finish will add a depth to your overall design, it is a good idea to consult a designer before you begin. When working with wood and mixing it with the other trends of the year, it is easy to go a bit too far. Know when to stop. Your vessel and faucet areas are usually the visual focal point of each of these rooms. The trend is classy, clean, and elegant. Consider your countertops and floor covering choices and allow the experts to guide you.
