Some of the best kitchen designs as of 2015 include gray cupboards, walls and accent pieces; space-saving hydraulic and easy-close doors; a contrasting black and white palette; and colored sinks. Other good designs include bold light fixtures, sensor-activated faucets and lights, and quartz countertops.
One major design trend is a contrasting color palette such as white and black or milky white and eggplant. This light and shadow design uses contrasting colors to make a kitchen pop, featuring dark cupboards, light countertops and a back splash that features both shades. The black and white palette contrasts white walls and cupboards with black appliances and countertops. Using gray instead of white as a major kitchen color is another popular design trend when it is paired with a contrasting color such as stained wood.
Instead of getting a classic stainless steel sink, an individual can opt for a colorful sink such as green or red or colors that complement the rest of the kitchen's decor. Adding sensor-activated faucets to that brightly colored sink is another top design feature for those who want to avoid dirtying handles with sticky or grimy hands. Another individual design feature to consider is lighting. Not only are bold light fixtures popular, adding depth to a room, but sensor-activated lights make fumbling for switches a thing of the past.
