What Houzz contributors are saying:
Rugs Add Warmth and SoftnessKitchens tend to have a lot of hard surfaces (cabinetry, counters, appliances and hardware), and they can benefit from the softness of rugs. If your kitchen seems a little too much like a workspace, a soft, tactile rug can help it feel more like a welcoming part of the home, especially if you have rugs or carpeting in adjacent rooms.
3. Find a Fabulous Rug The use of rugs in the kitchen is a relatively new design trend, and as a designer, I’ve hopped right on board. As someone who spends lots of time enjoying my kitchen, I just love the feel of a comfy carpet under my feet when I’m doing my daily kitchen prep.
2. Personalization. Homeowners won’t shy away from incorporating colors, patterns and decor they love into their kitchens in 2017. As a result, Lockhart anticipates more personalized kitchen spaces. “While white is still popular, it’s not personalized, so we’ll see more individualized kitchens through color and materials,” she says. Colors will range from pink and black to jewel tones, while materials will emphasize geometry and texture. You can also expect to see decor items such as area rugs and runners to add even more personalization to a kitchen.
