Kitchen Trends for 2015

In the next year kitchen design is transforming to give people a bit more then just a place for cooking. It is becoming a multi-purpose space that allows fancy meals to be cooked while also acting as a spot of getting together, conversation, dining and social festivities. 

Bold Colours on Trend
This year is a time to give your kitchen a bold colour upgrade with no fear of adding a bit of colour to your interior where you might not have expected it before. Bright colours naturally draw the eye in and creating a focal point within the space. However, bold colours will work better being balanced with lighter neutral tones. 

Industrial Lighting
Good lighting is a key element of any interior. Every kitchen will need to be well-lit in order to keep up with culinary adventures, as well as providing a welcoming  space for get-togethers. Industrial-style lighting is a key trend for 2015 year. Industrial style refers to raw finishes, so black steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, wire caging in place of sconces, clear glass and old-fashioned style light bulbs, rivets and other industrial hardware will look perfect.

Industrial Kitchen Island
Industrial style is taking over interior design ideas and moving slowly to the kitchens. Idustrial style kitchens are taking on a new personality thanks to popular cooking shows that exhibit industrial kitchens that are outfitted with all the restaurant-quality fixings.
The focal point of the kitchen remains a kitchen island and the style of island has begun to mimic a more industrial standard. 

Clever storage
When talking about kitchen trends for 2015, efficiency is all the rage. Kitchen pantry shelves are the best place to put efficiency in the kitchen. Clever storage, which makes the search for the right ingredient easier, should be a priority when it comes to the kitchen upgrade. Shelves that pull out allow to see everything at once without digging in the dark.

Vertical Kitchen Drawers
Vertical drawers have been so popular last few years that they are becoming an absolute must-have element of the kitchen. Those drawers could be added in the most unusual places, making sure no wall space was wasted. This style of drawer also works well for those small and sometimes hard-to-store items like spices.

Decorative Kitchen Island
Kitchen islands are becoming more than just a cooking station in 2015—they are acting as home and decor furnishings. This year kitchen islands are transforming from culinary base to a display case.
Consider incorporating glass or mirror doors on island storage units, or refurbish an old barn table into an island by adding lower shelving units for storage. Regardless of the style you choose make it a statement.

Kitchen Flooring
The most popular kitchen flooring in 2015 will be porcelain tiles. Porcelain tiles come in different colours, patterns, and textures, as well as they last long and do not require any special maintenance. Nowadays, stone and wooden effect tiles are booming the market, so tiles achieve any look, but in a more cost effective way.

More Tiles
Next year is definitely looking to be a tile revolution in the kitchen. This year design options vary from tiled kitchen splash-back to fully tiled kitchen walls. Not only does it provide a water resistant surface, but allows for easy cleaning. Colourful tiles gives your kitchen a fun and edgy look, allowing to follow the bold colours trend of this year.

Return of Brass
Good design is always noticeable by its details. Kitchen is no exception to this rule. Adding a bit of brass details, like handles, taps or even cooking pans, can turn your kitchen into a very elegant space. Brass lighting pendants could be also considered.

Smarter Kitchen
With new technology gadgets being released every month you might want to upgrade the kitchen with one of them. Embracing charging stations within your kitchen design will make it unique and ‘smarter’ in 2015.
