“In most homes the kitchen wears many hats—it’s the center of the family team huddle, the place for bantering with friends, the computer room for paying the bills, an entertainment center, a children’s art museum and let’s not forget its original purpose—a place to enjoy good food with family and friends.”
The household kitchen was originally designed for preparing and cooking meals. However, over the past few decades, the kitchen has slowly morphed into the epicenter of the home, according to Firenza Stone. We can all agree that the kitchen is the heart of every home, so why shouldn’t yours have its own style? Here are a few kitchen fads that you’ll see in every home in 2017.
This contrasting color scheme between the floor cabinets and upper wall cabinets aren’t all that new, but are becoming very popular. One King’s Lane claims this monochromatic color-blocking, timeless style and universal appeal brings elegance and simplicity to your kitchen.

If you are selling a home, you may want to consider home staging- preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. Don’t you want your house to give a great first impression to potential buyers? Staging furniture in your house helps buyers get a look and feel of a lived-in space. According to New Market Homes professionally staged homes sell almost 75% faster than empty ones, so your house most likely won’t be sitting on the market as long.
SixElements Home Staging Advice says most buyers have a hard time picturing their home while standing in an empty room. It’s easy for a realtor to tell a potential buyer where to put furniture in an empty room, but it’s another story when the buyer can visualize the space with furniture.
One of the biggest problems with home staging is the cost. Home sellers spend an average of $1,800 to stage a home, but costs can range from a couple of hundred dollars to $5,000 or more, according to Kiplinger.
Virtually staging your home is a newer way to put your home on display without spending a ton of money on staging furniture! Virtual staging uses computer technology to add furniture and other decor to photos of houses and rooms.
A few features of virtual staging include adding furniture, rugs, art and even plants to your empty room.
Louisville Realty Group has started to use this new technology on some of its current listings. Pictures of empty rooms were submitted and in less than 24 hours our agents were...
