The kitchen is considered the heart and soul of the house. The 2015 trend has seen the traditional kitchen transformed into a luxury, creative space.

Brass has made a comeback creating an elegant space with this shiny metal. Luxury metals including brass, copper and gold can be featured from the hood, backsplashes to taps and cabinet handles. If brass is too shiny for your liking, try copper.

Open plan kitchens has been a favourite design for a while now. The new trend is to have minimal walls cabinets to enhance the room’s sense of spaciousness. Creating an airy, bulk-free look allows you to focus on other design elements such as large windows and glass doors bringing in natural light and connecting the outdoors.

Going with the airy feel, open shelving offers a practical solution for the kitchen space. Your space is personalized, making it feel lived in and warm, yet functional at the same time.

Ceilings are moving away from being functional and adding to the rooms beauty. The trend is to draw your attention up, using lighting, bulkheads, coffer ceilings, beams and windows.

Spice up your kitchen design using bold, rich colours like crimson red, royal blue, mustard yellow. Use these bold colours with contrasting shades to get that aesthetic look.
