8 Kitchen Trends for 2015

Kitchens have become the main hub of family interaction over the past few decades. If you are considering a face lift to your kitchen, check out these trends for 2015!

2015 kitchen trends favor "less is more".   Clean lines and simple moldings with selected accents that offer some personalization.

Open shelving, cook tops, wall ovens, and under-counter options such as specialized drawers for wine, refrigeration and microwaving

Clean Lines, Less Clutter

While transitional styles are still number one, we see kitchen design trending more contemporary this year, with clean, simple lines; 
less clutter; and little ornamentation.

White cabinets will always be a classic, especially when paired with black countertops. But people have started to shift away from classic white by turning to grays and bolder colors including deep blues.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are increasing.  Granite is still a great

material, but quartz surfacing continues to gain fans - and market share.  

Durable heat-resistant and easy to maintain, the material also permits a variety of looks that granite cannot match.

  • Glass Back Splashes

    Glass back splashes will grow in popularity

    LED Lighting

    • LED lighting  was cited as an "in-demand" kitchen feature for the coming year.
          • LEDs are super energy efficient, last much longer than incandescent bulbs and offer many style options.   

        • Electronic Satin Nickel / Polished Chrome Finish Faucets 

          Satin Nickel is the most popular faucet finish and will continue to grow as will Polished Chrome.

          The idea of electronic faucets is too good to pass up.  And now that manufacturers have upped the style and improved the reliability, the products are only going to get more popular. NKBA said it's one of the most in-demand items.

          Wood Flooring

          Wood is the most popular flooring material in America. When the real material is inappropriate (in moisture-prone or high traffic areas), more buyers are turning to ceramic tile with a wood grain pattern.  The demand for it will only increase.

          USB Outlets

          Wall sockets with built-in USB parts are
          the future. The products make it easier to charge cell phones, gaming devices, digital cameras and tablets. 

          French-Door Refrigerator

          Do consumers still buy side-by-side refrigerators?  It's not hard to see why a French-door refrigerator - with two doors up top and a freezer below - is a much better idea.  It  puts everyday items at eye-level and offers full shelves for pizza boxes.
