2015 Kitchen Remodeling Trends
If you are thinking about updating your kitchen this year, take a little time to look at some of the hottest new looks in fixtures and appliances.
In 2015, along with darker woods and minimalist styling, kitchen remodeling trends include white appliances and plumbing fixtures that are deeper, richer metallics. Gone are the days of light wood and stainless steel. Here are some ideas for your own home.
Stainless steel has fallen out of favor, as the latest kitchen remodeling trends are focusing on warmer metals such as copper and bronze or metals that are brushed to create a warmer look, like nickel or steel. This trend tracks well with the increasing popularity of darker woods like oak and cherry in cabinets.
At the same time, there is a trend in the opposite direction as minimalist, white-colored cabinetry and appliances are also coming back into vogue. Lighter cabinet colors and woods like birch and maple, often paired with stainless steel fixtures, are not favored in 2015.
Kitchen sinks that are white or lightly-colored are also becoming more prevalent in homes and will continue to do so as more people remodel this year. Designers seem to see white as a new neutral color and are embracing it for sinks, cabinets and appliances in kitchen updates. So, when you’re looking at kitchen appliances, especially when it comes to refrigerator and dishwasher doors, think white.
An important consideration in any kitchen remodel is making sure that you have the right plumbing and electrical systems for the updates. Ice makers and dishwashers need their own plumbing sources. New appliances may require their own circuits or even an increase in your home’s electrical service amperage.
