Picture sandy browns, oranges, reds, greens and plum colors. The hue can be light or dark but the colors should be muted and calming.

Textured wood floors
While this was common in 2016, it’s evolving. Textured wood is overtaking the traditional glossy wood. Wire brushed and hand scraped wood are trends to look for.
Wood and stone particularly. Stone is great for countertops while granite or quartz is elegant in the bathroom. Modern wood paneling, flooring and exposed beams are also making a comeback.
Tuxedo cabinets features dark lower cabinets and lighter walls and upper cabinets.
While stainless steel or colored appliances provide a nice contrast, the trend is shifting toward hidden appliances. Cabinet faces for dishwasher and refrigerator doors and drawer-style microwaves are going to be popular.
Spa bathtubs are out due to water waste and maintenance hassles. Tiled walk-in showers have been creeping their way to the top for a while now and will be even more popular in 2017.
Open floor plans

Dark wood finishes
Dark wood is going to overtake light this year. Modern design is all about contrast so dark wood against a light background is the perfect contemporary combination.
Look for recycled materials, reclaimed wood and other sustainable building supplies
