Kitchen great spot for trendy renovation efforts

Americans briefly scaled back the scope of home renovation projects after the recession began nearly a decade ago, says interior designer and “HGTV Design Star” judge Vern Yip. But even during the peak of that focus on smaller, more sustainable living, the size and complexity of kitchen designs continued to grow. “The kitchen is the heart of the home,” Yip says, and people see it as good place to spend money and recoup the investment when they sell their home. What’s trending in kitchen design for 2017? Yip and two other interior design experts — Caleb Anderson, co-founder of the New York-based design firm Drake/Anderson, and Brian Patrick Flynn, interior designer for HGTV’s “Urban Oasis” 2016 home giveaway — share their favorite innovations and thoughts on which trending design choices will stand the test of time.
