We are now well on our way into this millennium. It’s 2015. Does you kitchen reflect this? Is it stuck in the 1980s, ’90s or early 2000s? The key is to embrace what you like with timeless pieces if you don’t want a dated look, or to make tweaks along the way to freshen it up. No matter your game plan, knowing what is hot in kitchen design is always fun. Here are five kitchen trends we are particularly enjoying.
Warm metals … and mix it up!
You’ve seen this popping up over the past five years, right? Well if not, you will see it everywhere in 2015. And we’re really loving metals that don’t match. Think gold, bronze, gunmetal and silver all used in one kitchen.
Don’t overlook that ceiling any longer. Add wallpaper, a different paint color or perhaps some paneling, but do something to that ceiling and have it be a show stopper.
Black cabinets, black walls, black counters
White kitchens will always be on-trend and fabulous, but what about black? This is a striking choice, and you’ll see more people making this bold decision.
Painted cabinets and stained wood
Consider mixing woods for a modern look. Either different colors of wood, or painted and nonpainted. They look great together!
Open shelving mixed with closed cabinets
You don’t have to choose one or the other. Consider having some open shelving and some closed for the best of both worlds.
