2015 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends

March 2, 2015

Every year brings along exciting new design trends and, with so much time being spent in the kitchen, they are one of the best rooms to update with some new features, whether large or small. Let’s look at four kitchen design trends that are going to be big in 2015.

One of the kitchen trends this year will be to add more color and liveliness with cheerful backsplashes, lighting and appliances. Mosaics will be popular for backsplash design, providing beautiful, eye-catching details that add elegance to an otherwise ordinary kitchen.

In 2015, stone and glass mosaics will be trendy, offering alternatives to the usual and expected mosaic designs. Stone mosaics will feature specialty shaped tiles such as ovals, triangles, and hexagons, with glass mosaics displaying rectangular tiles, among other shapes.

Gray and Neutral Combinations

Gray will continue to be in demand this year, along with neutrals such as taupe and beige. The combination of these colors, such as gray and beige, is going to be a color scheme frequently used in 2015 kitchen designs. Think of mixing these colors for countertops, walls and cabinets to create a light, spacious atmosphere.

Black is going to be on of 2015’s go-to colors in kitchen design. Black is an elegant, sleek choice, especially for those who may be looking to break away from the more traditional brightly colored kitchens.

Selecting black cabinetry or countertops is an easy and simple way to incorporate this classic, sophisticated color into your kitchen.

Textured Materials

Kitchens in 2015 will feature more textured and tactile materials. Natural marble and granite with honed finishes, along with fabricated stones made to replicate raw finishes, will be seen again and again. Incorporating these materials, similar to the Ivory Split 3D Stack Travertine, adds a touch of luxury to any kitchen.

2015 Bathroom Design Trends

Along with kitchens, bathrooms are one of the most used rooms in a home and are important to keep up-to-date for both for practicality and style. Here are four bathroom design trends that will be popular in 2015.

Shades of Gray

Yes, white will remain an extremely popular bathroom color choice. However, different shades of gray will be rivaling white this year. The National Kitchen and Bath Association found gray to be the fastest-growing shade for the bathroom.

Gray provides simplicity in a clean, yet more contemporary way, offering more modern appeal.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are going to be big in 2015, being known for having low maintenance, great durability and a large selection of style options. If you’re in the market for a new countertop and thinking of something other than granite, quartz may be just the way to go this year.

Black Tile

Sleek black tiles will be in demand for those looking to create a bolder look in the bathroom and attain a more minimalist, modern vibe.

Black tile provides a dark, rich ambiance that could be a refreshing change to the more standard light and crisp bathroom décor.

Matte and Semi-Gloss Tiles

Although polished tiles will retain their popularity, bathroom design will move toward using matte and semi-gloss finished tiles this year. Softer, cozier spaces are trending in 2015 and these tiles are the perfect way to add this look and feel to a bathroom.
