The kitchen is the hub of culinary creativity, and it also offers tremendous design opportunities for homeowners who are ready to remodel. Here are a few looks, finishes, and design elements we believe will be on trend in the year ahead.
- The kitchen as part of the great room. Experts agree that the kitchen will continue to merge with other rooms as the open space concept surges in popularity. Great rooms – a hybrid of the kitchen, family room, living room, and dining room – are forecast to become the most likely of rooms in 2015, according to “The New Home in 2015,″ a survey of designers, builders and other home experts published by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
- Bold color. Not a fan of all-white kitchens? You’re in luck, because interior designers are injecting fun, funky color into kitchens and living areas, using lime greens, turquoises, sunset yellows, and rich clay reds to transform boring rooms into spaces that demand attention.
- Modern traditional style. The kitchen continues to be a prime location to mix colors, materials, and textures, such as stainless steel and wood, or wood and marble. Designers say homeowners are moving from contemporary features including polished chrome fixtures and glass backsplashes to more traditional elements such as classic door profiles, tile, and pewter or brushed nickel fixtures.
- Customized countertops. Eco-friendly countertops made from engineered concrete are the latest trend in kitchen interiors. For homeowners who want to participate in the creative process, this material can be totally customized using different ingredients, casting techniques and surface treatments.
