2017 Kitchen Renovation Trends

Do you love gray walls in the kitchen? If so, you're not alone. The 2017 Houzz Kitchen Study tracked trends among renovating homeowners and revealed that contemporary styling and a gray and white color scheme led in popularity.

The entire study is fascinating, but we were particularly interested in the primary goals that homeowners had for their kitchen renovation. More than half wanted to create a space that "is more open to other rooms" and 36% simply wanted a bigger kitchen. Other highlights:

  • Quartz and granite run neck-and-neck as top countertop materials
  • Pantries have a very slight edge over kitchen islands as top built-in features
  • Hardwood and tile remain the leading kitchen floor choices


We've shared an at-a-glance chart of the study highlights below. You can read the full results of the study here: Houzz Kitchen Renovation Study 2017
