Wood has always been a firm favorite material for the kitchen, bringing a warm and rustic touch to the space. However in 2017 we will see a lot of light, natural wood used for cupboards, drawers, shelves and even counter tops.

6. It's all about the lighting

Invest in some lamps or dimming lights in the ceiling, which will give your a kitchen a beautiful, soft glow. This will create a cozy space that family and friends naturally gravitate towards.

7. Recycle it

You don't need to spend a fortune sprucing up your kitchen for 2017. Recycle old furniture and appliances to give the space a distinctly funky and retro look and feel.

8. A gas stove
