5 home design fads fading out in 2017

Shiplap and white-on-white kitchens may finally be falling out of favor. The two trends have dominated home design in recent years, but realtor.com says they’ll be fading fast in 2017. Here are some of the home design trends realtor.com predicts will fall to the wayside in the new year.
  • Gray. Once the hottest color, gray now looks gloomy. “It’s been overdone,” says Tanya Campbell of Denver-based Viridis Design Studio. “Diversity in the palette will strike a contrast. We may even see a transition from gray color palettes to warmer mochas and taupes.”
  • The glam look. This style’s signature is bold whites, bright silvers and deep blacks in kitchen and bathroom designs. “We’re going to leave the glam era behind. That slick, stark, severe minimalism will be replaced with warmer elements,” says interior designer Bea Pila. “At the end of the day, we’re seeking a deeper comfort level in our personal spaces. That perfect showroom feel we were once into doesn’t make this possible.”
  • Shiplap. Shiplap (wooden board commonly used as exterior siding) surged to popularity as Joanna Gaines, host of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” turned to it as her go-to remodeling piece. “If you’ve ever wondered what 2016’s version of tacky wood paneling would be, look no further than this trend that seems to have overtaken TV design shows,” realtor.com notes. It’s difficult to remove, and designers now say it often makes little sense to use, particularly in a Colonial or Tudor home style.
  • White-on-white kitchens. White everything in the kitchen – from countertops to cabinetry and even the floor – is fading fast. “It’s just too much,” says Sara Chiarilli, a designer at Sarasota, Fla.-based Artful Conceptions. “This trend started to go in 2016, but you will find it completely gone in 2017.” That said, Chiarilli predicts that whites will stick around, but they will take on more depth and tones in kitchens in the new year.
  • Copper. Expect to see less of this heavy metal in 2017.
