Latest Kitchen Trends for Modern Custom Homes

In 2017, modern custom homes have spacious, comfortable and functional kitchens in which cooking is not the only activity anymore. In this modern home design, the main floor includes an open space kitchen that serves as a multi-purpose room.

The latest trends for custom kitchens include a space in which you and your family can entertain guests, work from home, cook, and share family time every day. Being part of the open space concept, the kitchen design is connected to the living and dining rooms as well, creating a sense of openness and more space.

At Sunset Homes, Calgary’s bespoke home builder, we have checked the latest trends to give you some ideas and some inspiration for planning a kitchen renovation or to include in your custom home.

Go-to colours for your new luxury home
White kitchens continue to be everyone’s favourite. Nevertheless, grey and brown have been trending this year. Calgary modern homes are displaying matching colours for cabinets, backsplash, and countertops. Moreover, having light colours in different shades is also a big trend this year.

Graphic tile for custom modern kitchens
Traditional tile is still being used in all white kitchens, but also graphic patterns are a good addition to customize your kitchen. If graphic tile doesn’t match your style, choosing a light tile colour with some texture can bring that unique touch as well.   

Calgary infill homes include super pantries
Homeowners nowadays need plenty of storage space. A walk-in pantry design or up to ceiling kitchen cabinets are big trends for pantries this year and both options provide plenty of storage. Some super pantries include built-in spaces designed for your appliances, drawers with cutting tables, and spots to place your laptop.

Under-Cabinet Lighting
Another small addition trending in 2017 to customize your kitchen is adding under-cabinet lighting. This kind of lighting will help brighten your countertops and provide a unique style to your kitchen as well.
