The hottest colors and textures for your kitchen change over time. Very recently, shining, stainless steel and glossy, granite countertops ruled luxury kitchens. In 2017, a more subtle approach is taking center stage. Matte finishes, knobby textures, and muted metals are all elements you can bring into your kitchen to have the latest look.


Abundant texture is hot today in interior design. Texture can be found everywhere, in lighting fixtures, furniture upholstery, and even wallpapers. Furniture accents, like brushed-metal tables, add texture to a room, as well as nubby throws on sofas. Artisan-crafted furniture with natural textures is also an excellent choice to add layers to a room.

Matte Finishes

Matte finish countertops are also becoming more popular. Countertop materials with a matte finish include familiar favorites, like Corian and butcher block. You can also choose more unusual materials, like zinc, cement, or natural limestone.

Black, Stainless-Steel Appliances

The reign of stainless-steel appliances in high-end kitchens may be coming to an end. All major appliance manufacturers, including Kitchenaid, LG, and Samsung, are now offering black, stainless-steel appliances. One major selling point is that they are smudge-free and won’t pick up fingerprints, like traditional stainless steel. The look also goes along with the trend of matte, muted tones.
