Kitchen Design Trends For 2015
Are you building a new home or thinking about renovating the kitchen in your current home? Designing your new kitchen can be an extensive task. Many homeowners struggle with creating a kitchen design that is modern but also classic. Before you start shopping for paint, appliances and decorations, consider the kitchen design trends of 2015 and allow them to inspire your own kitchen design.
Bold and bright kitchens are not nearly as popular as they were five years ago, and designers are now swaying towards neutral tones. Neutrals create a comfortable and classic look and are easy to match with cabinets, appliances, countertops and decor. A neutral kitchen is also more likely to stay trendy longer.
Cabinets are always changing, and everyone has their own preference when it comes to style, color and material. For 2015, wood cabinets are a popular choice. Oak and Pine are the two most popular wood materials and both dark and light stains and varnishes are being used by home decorators and designers.
Forget stainless steel, oil-rubbed bronze is the hottest options for fixtures and finishes. Oil-rubbed bronze faucets, cabinet handles, trims and appliances are all becoming more available and more popular, giving the kitchen a rustic yet elegant appearance.
Stainless steel and black sinks have been popular for the last decade, but white sinks are now making a comeback. White offers a sense of cleanliness and purity that fits well in a kitchen. Ceramic is the most popular material used for white sinks. Deep sinks are also a popular kitchen trend this year.
Open Floor Plans
If you have the option of creating an open floor plan in your home between the living room and a the kitchen or the dining room and the kitchen, opt for it. Open floor plans make the area feel more inviting. Of course, this means you should make sure the decor and color scheme in the adjoining rooms matches and the design is consistent.
Designing a kitchen can be both fun and difficult. If you want your kitchen to be modern and stylish but also classic and something you will enjoy for many years to come, consider using some of the hot kitchen design trends of 2015 in your own design.
