7 Kitchen Trends to Consider for your Next Renovations

7 Kitchen Trends to Consider for your Renovations • on @SavvyHome

Thinking of renovating this year? Here are the top kitchen trends to watch out for in 2015.

 

Waterfall Islands

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.

Unexpected 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

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

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!

    Awesome tips! I love the look of the subway tile but I’m not so sure about the dark grout, haha. Huge fan of the waterfall island. It looks so modern and sleek.

      The dark grout is not for everyone! But in the right kitchen, it can look stunning. Huge fan of the waterfall island too.

    Really like this post! 🙂 Dark grout can be so tricky because it can show the slightest imperfections and can look wonky. If done well/professionally, it can be lovely. I also love grey grout! Happy medium.

      Very true! The grey grout is the best of both worlds 🙂

    Love the mix of different metals in the kitchen. Especially the brushed gold hardware on the cabinets. I just finished a full house remodel 2 years ago and still love my off white subway tile with matching grout. Like the fact that the backsplash only adds texture to my kitchen. I really think the “waterfall” effect on kitchen cabinets, is a short lived trend. Very expensive to add all that solid surface material, when you could add many different styles to the end of cabinets that would make it appealing to the vision of the living area.
