Thinking of renovating this year? Here are the top kitchen trends to watch out for in 2015.
Sounds romantic doesn’t it? No, we’re not talking about breathtaking getaway destinations, but the shape of your kitchen island. The sleek minimal look of waterfall islands is getting the internet’s vote of confidence over any other island style these days. It’s also perfect for tucking bar stools away.
White Marble Everywhere
While it’s not always financially possible (or practical) to cover every surface of your kitchen in white Calacatta marble, the look will inevitably add value to your kitchen. Trick your kitchen into looking more expensive (and trick your Insta followers with those avocado toast bird’s-eye-views) with marble cheese boards, a marble top breakfast table or other marble accessories.
While we love the convenience and comfort of a well-designed brand new kitchen, our boho hearts crave a bit of authentic charm. Maybe it’s a global chic vintage rug, unexpected artwork, vintage jars or farmhouse furniture… These small details will make your space look less generic and more personal.
The New Subway Tile
Subway tile with dark grout. We’ve all seen (perhaps too much) the classic white subway tile backsplash. But the new way to do subway tile in the kitchen is entire walls with a gritty dark grout for a more urban less polished look.
Patterned tiles are all the rage right now. they’ve made their way into our bathrooms (and into our hearts) but expect to see more and more in kitchens as well. You’ll find them on the floor, but also as a popular backsplash option.
Shaker Style Cabinets
Shaker style kitchen cabinets is the new timeless go-to choice. It’s just modern enough with a timeless appeal. Paint them the color of your choice (a popular one right now is moss green) and upgrade them with beautiful statement hardware. This trick will give even the most basic cabinets a polished tailored look.
Mixed metals: copper, nickel, brass or iron: you don’t have to choose anymore. Mix and match various metals with your faucets, pendant lamps, knobs and pulls, pots and pans or even bar stools. Metallic accents are the jewelry of your room and give it that extra high quality factor, and they’re all neutrals so mix away!
