Kitchen design trends

We’re seeing some emerging trends in kitchen design for 2015.  Are you taking on a kitchen design project this year?  Read on for the latest in kitchens.

One word…grey.  Grey is so popular this year and it’s being used everywhere—for walls, cabinets, countertops and tile.  We recommend using a cool grey for more modern interiors and a warm grey for more traditional homes.

Another color trend is the use of two cabinet colors within the room.  We’ve seen this before, where the island cabinets are a different color than the rest of the cabinets.  Now we are seeing upper cabinets a different color than the lower cabinets, often white on the top.  Which seems to have been inspired by a desire for a more open feel.

This brings us to our third trend…the open concept kitchen.  This has actually been used for a while now, but seems to have turned into a bit of an obsession.  Kitchens that are being opened up to dining or living areas are also trying to increase that open feel by reducing the amount of upper cabinets or using open shelving in place of them.

Another trend we are seeing is a real love of materials—marble, metals, tiles, wood.   People are falling in love with a tile or countertop material and are using it as inspiration for the design of the room.  This careful layering of materials and color is producing beautiful results.
