Top 5 Kitchen Trends for 2015
As we close the door to 2014 we open one for the new year of 2015. A new year and new trends. 2015 kitchen trends are all about warm, cool, dark and light layers of the same hue. It’s one chromatic concept, gracefully flowing from room to room. When you think of your dream kitchen, you think elegant,” “sophisticated,” “simply beautiful”, these are the words that come to mind right? Even just adding a coat of paint, new lighting and carefully chosen decorative details can bring your current kitchen a bit closer to that dream. The stunning appeal of the best kitchen designs comes from various textures, colors, patterns and materials working together to create an overall feel. One reason these kitchens work is because of certain kitchen color trends that point designers toward a “no-fail zone” when choosing a palette for the space.
For many families, the kitchen is the hub of the home, so it’s important to acknowledge how the space impacts adjacent rooms and traffic flow. New design features help to customize your space, including the ability to accommodate varying levels of mobility. Technology also comes to the kitchen, bringing energy saving strategies with it. Designing a new kitchen involves more than selecting countertops and appliances. How the kitchen fits and functions within the entire home, and the impacts of technology and sustainability options are as integral to a successful design as selecting an appropriate color palette. To assist your planning, we asked 11 top designers to predict the design color trends and décor of the upcoming year. From olive greens and bright patterns, to these chic combinations that may be the next big thing. Here are the Top 5 Kitchen Trends for 2015.

They really stand out and create an interesting contrast without being too extravagant. In 2015, homeowners will no longer be limited to silver or stainless steel fixtures, and will feel free to mix and match finish colors, or go bold with all gold.
Blue, like also pictured above, will be the most popular accent color and is the perfect complement to Marsala, the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year.
