The Top 5 Kitchen Designs for 2015
Have you been contemplating revamping your kitchen for a while? If so, 2015 may be the year for you but there are a few factors to consider first. There are a number of fantastic fitted kitchens in Llandudno, North Wales and the rest of the UK which really catch the eye. However, it becomes very difficult to make a definite decision when there is so much choice.
In order to help narrow your choices study your existing space and note how you could improve your kitchens setup, as well as having a vision of what you would like. This could be as simple as a colour scheme, but is still a step forward to getting your new house project moving forward.
Flicking through home magazines to research emerging trends could help you greatly for inspiration. After endless research the whole idea of having a new kitchen can be overwhelming, so here are five kitchens designs which are expected to be big in 2015, to help you make a decision:

island or in the form of cupboards, whereas the modern factor can be the
accessories and lighting. This is a style which could work well only with
a good-sized kitchen, therefore consider which styles are best for your
- Metallics – This isn’t
just a fashion statement, but instead a finish for a variety of other
items: gadgets, paints and now countertop and door finishes. Silver,
chrome and stainless steel are three metallics commonly used in the
kitchen, but later on in the year gold, copper and bronze are set to
- Textures – A rustic
appearance in the kitchen is quite popular, but also elsewhere in
properties. Brick walls which show on the inside as well as the exterior
are one example of using textures and tactile materials to your advantage.
Additionally, wood will continue to be a trend in the future but more so
when represented in its natural form, rather than high-gloss and smooth
- Less Is More – Clutter-free kitchen space creates a clean space to enjoy. Integrated appliances are one way to achieve this look, but minimal wall cabinets are another example. The decision to not incorporate wall cabinets into your kitchen creates a space that’s not top-heavy. This also brings us back design number one: Airy & Open Shelving.
