What to Look For – Upcoming Kitchen Trends in 2015
Your kitchen is arguably the most important room in your home. It is where you not only prepare and store food for your family, but also serves as a gathering place for meals and promotes interaction and connection with friends and loved ones.

Planning out a kitchen in a custom home is a daunting task – there are so many options! People spend weeks planning out their dream kitchen and the truth is that there is no single option for design that fits everyone’s needs. Make sure your kitchen has everything you need and provides a comfortable atmosphere for you and your family.

Let’s take a look at some of the upcoming trends in kitchen design:

Open Shelving

When you are in the middle of preparing a large meal, you need easy access to any and all ingredients. One practical way to ensure nothing is out of sight is by using open shelving rather than solely cabinets.

You can place commonly used items, like seasonings or cooking oils, on an open-air shelf so that you can find it quickly each and every time you need it. No more opening cabinet doors and digging around blindly ­­– everything you need is in plain sight!

Traditionally Modern Design

Interior designers and custom home builders are beginning to combine traditional and modern style elements to produce a very clean look that works in any home.

The sleek, futuristic designs we’ve seen in recent years are on the way out. Focusing strictly on modern design elements can make a kitchen feel cold and unwelcoming. Incorporating the classic comforts of traditional kitchen design with modern design elements results in a warmer and more inviting space that anyone will feel comfortable in.

Eye-Catching Ceiling

In recent years, all of the focus has been on the floor of a kitchen. After seeing multiple breakthroughs and exciting designs for kitchen flooring, the time has finally come to look up and think about your ceiling.

Lighting will play a major role in ceiling design and style by providing endless options, including varying brightness and configurations. Bulkheads and coffer ceilings are also expected to help bring ceilings back into the conversation.

Welcome Black

Pristine white kitchens have been totally dominating magazine covers. As trends in other areas of the home have shown a shift to gray walls and floors, kitchens are expected to take an even darker hue: black.

Black is primed and ready to serve as the feature color of your kitchen, whether it is cabinets, appliances or countertops. Colorful kitchens can just be too much sometimes, and all white kitchens give off an overly luxurious sense to some people. A predominately black kitchen will provide a unique and sophisticated style that is not over-the-top.
