1.     Open Shelving

The idea of having open shelves in kitchen may sound scary if you have a lot of clutter. But you may try combining open shelving with kitchen cabinets to showcase your beautiful kitchen pots and pans or maybe some artwork. Open shelving also makes the kitchen look spacious. So, if you don’t want your kitchen to look tiny and congested, consider creating an innovative storage space with open shelves.

2.     Painted Cabinets

People who once believed that honey oak kitchen cabinets are going to last forever are painting their kitchen cabinets to give a new, refreshed look to their kitchens. The best thing about painting kitchen cabinets is that you have a lot of options in colors. If you want to make the space look elegant, consider painting the cabinets black or dark gray. On the other hand, if you are facing space constraints and want to give your kitchen a fresh, light feel, then use white or pastel colors.

3.     Quartz Countertops

While granite has always remained the number one choice for countertops, another mineral has caught the eyes of interior designers and is getting popular day by day.  Quartz, the second most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust, does not get scratched or stained and has low maintenance needs. Also, the stone looks quite elegant and lasts for a long time, providing you good returns on investment. The only drawback is that it’s more expensive than granite.

4.     Creative Storage

Kitchens keep running out of storage space and therefore, creative storage will remain in style for many years to come, or maybe, forever. The only thing that has changed is that traditional cabinets and drawers have gone out of fashion are individuals are looking to add more innovative storage space to their kitchens.

5.     Smart Stations

Smart stations are probably the hottest kitchen remodeling trends in 2015. More and more individuals are incorporating charging stations in their kitchen under the island countertops and inside the drawers to have an easy access to their smart phones and other gadgets.
