Kitchen Trends for 2017  What New in Designing or Updating Your Kitchen.  

While a home's curb appeal may draw buyers in, its interior matters just as much, if not more. Several features are high on the wish list of today's homebuyer, including a modern kitchen. Whether you're thinking of starting a remodel or you're just curious about what the future holds, check out these trends that turn kitchens into buyer bait. Work with your realtor to help determine your return on investment. 

Hidden appliances: Upgrading appliances is one of the quickest ways to add value to a kitchen. If you're looking to impress a buyer with deep pockets, look into hidden appliances. What's the appeal? Less obvious appliances keep the eye on the kitchen's overall flow and design.

Personalized pantries: The utilitarian kitchen pantry has evolved into a trending design element. Whether you choose a pocket door and complementary light fixture or a rustic barn door and wallpaper, there's no shortage of ways to express your personal style.

Creative countertops: Looking for a revamp with an immediate impact? Upgrade the counters. Quartz and butcher block, both easy to maintain, are quickly replacing traditional marble and granite surfaces. You can dress up your kitchen further with sleek waterfall-edge countertops that extend vertically to the floor.

Mixed-up metal accents: Accessorizing with different finishes is a trendy, cost-effective way to update your kitchen. In addition to stainless steel and gold, homebuilders are seeing copper accents emerging as the metallic detail of choice.

Don't let a dated kitchen cost you when it's time to sell your home. Incorporating a trend or two could be enough to give your kitchen the facelift it needs to entice buyers.
