Your kitchen is the hub of your home. It should be functional and also reflect who you are and your taste and style. So, if you like being on trend then check out some of the latest kitchen design ideas for 2015 below.
Old is New
Using salvaged materials and finds in your kitchen shows your love of the vintage look and feel as well as being environmentally friendly by reusing and recycling. Use this look if your home is full of other reclaimed items.
Pattern & Colour
Geometric tiles in bold colours can stand out in an otherwise neutral space giving a retro feel to your kitchen. Use this look if you like splashes of boldness but don’t want to be too flashy.
City Meets Country
Mix country style furniture – like tables & chairs – with modern streamlined cabinetry to give a city look with soft edges. Use this look with wooden floors and a bright airy view.
Sense of Space
Think minimalist, almost industrial looks in natural looking colours and a simpler design that lends a sense of space to the kitchen. Sometimes two tones or textures are used to add a bit of individual design to an otherwise flat space. Use this look in small spaces to make your kitchen seem larger.
Instead of chrome & silver, this year’s trend focuses on the warmer metallic in copper, bronze and gold. Think of fixtures and taps in these metal colours, or for lighting accents. Use this look to add a little luxury without being to over the top.
Opting for drawers rather than cupboards is definitely on trend this year. And the bigger the better! Display cabinets are not really popular anymore, instead the trend is to hide everything away but make it super easy to get to. Everyone can use this tip, no matter what size or kind of kitchen.
LED lighting is both energy efficient and functional. It can be used under cabinets and kickboards & even inside drawers. Use this look to highlight features and make your new kitchen shine.
