5 Kitchen Trends We Love for 2015
Redoing your kitchen in 2015? Check out these 5 great decor trends for the new year.
If you’re planning a kitchen makeover for next year, then keep reading. I’ve taken a wide look at some of the kitchen trends for 2015, and I’ve chosen 5 that I particularly like to share with you.
Overview of 2015
In general, kitchen design will abandon the ultra-sleek, ultra-modern look for more comfortable, more traditional spaces. Adorned cupboards, new textures and a wider array of colors will be available for trendy kitchen remodellers.
So, ready for the first trend we love?
1. Open shelving
Open the cupboard, shut the cupboard… open the cupboard, shut the cupboard. Does it get as annoying for you as it does for me? Well, if your answer is yes, you can rip those offending cupboard doors out and enjoy the glorious freedom of simply reaching out and grabbing whatever you need from an open shelf.
Open shelving opens up a space and makes everything seem more airy. It’s also great if you have interesting walls and want to display them as much as possible.
I love how the back of the shelves continues from the countertop. It ties the room together and makes the white features of the kitchen pop out.
2. Precious metals
Bored of the silver metal surfaces in your kitchen? You’re in luck, because here’s a really big trend for next year: warmer shades like gold, copper and bronze are making major headways into the kitchens of the fancy and the trendy.
That’s very different from the usual grey shades of metal available for kitchens, and I absolutely love it.
Sometimes even just a touch of warmth makes all the difference between a cold, clinical kitchen and one in which you’re happy to spend a lot of time.
Just like with the little dress, black is the color that goes with everything and fits everywhere. And in 2015, that might just be your kitchen.
It might take a lot of courage to have such a uniformly black kitchen, and the space needs to be quite large so it doesn’t feel suffocating. But if you’ve got the right space, a black kitchen might just be the right kind of palette change.
This kitchen has plenty of white to balance the amount of black; it also has a single splash of color focused in one single area, just for variety. I’d go with red, but that’s just me; the beauty of black is that any color goes with it–and will be beautifully highlighted by its dark surroundings.
4. Statement wallpaper
Can’t do what you want with just paint? No fear, wallpaper is back, and it’s back in force. And you can use it in your kitchen. And no, it doesn’t have to be the boring, traditional flowery wallpaper of old; with plenty of modern, funky and statement patterns to choose from, you’re sure to add a lot of personality to your kitchen.
This is a definitely subtle way to use wallpaper in the kitchen, but I love it. It’s tame enough for those who prefer sleeker designs, but it adds just enough personality to make this kitchen a whole new level of interesting.
I love this cool candelabra/floral wallpaper. It highlights the ones hanging from the ceiling, and it follows the style of the wall seating. It gives the cooking area a sense of importance; this says: “this is my special cooking space”.
5. Natural color palettes
Instead of bright primary colors, the kitchen of 2015 will feature more toned down, nature-inspired shades as interpreted through tribal art around the world.
Mustard yellow is definitely a favourite for 2015. It’s a suitable color for a kitchen, and it fits with plenty of neutrals.
But don’t be afraid to use deep, vibrant shades like this scarlet accent wall.
