2014 gave us some of the most stylish, luxurious kitchen trends to date. As 2014 comes to an end, it’s time to look back on our favorite trends of the year. This mood board encompasses the best of the 2014 trends, from pot fillers to prep sinks.
The kitchen featured above is the perfect example of transitional design. While all the elements go together, they don’t all fit into one specific design style. The while color scheme and fireclay farmhouse sink tie into a more traditional design, whereas the brushed nickel fixtures add an element of modernity.
Fireclay was another hot trend in 2014. This material is durable; scratch, stain, and chip-resistant; and doesn’t bend with thermal shock. It brings a traditional country feel into the design, and is spacious and stylish enough to be both a focal point in the space and an asset during chores.
Subway tile is arguably the biggest trend of 2014, and is ever-present in this design. It’s perfect as the cooktop backsplash, and its sheen creates a softer look in a bright white space.
Another trend of 2014 exemplified in this kitchen is the butcher block counter. These counters add warmth and efficiency to the kitchen, but are sometimes hard to clean. By using this material in a small designated area of the counter, you get all the benefits of a butcher block counter with none of the hassle.
Prep sinks and pot fillers are two of the most functional trends of 2014. Both of these pieces make cooking and entertaining a breeze, with their time-saving capabilities. Prep sinks give you a second space to wash dishes, make drinks, and prep food. Pot fillers eliminate the need to carry large pots to the cooktop from the sink.
With such great trends in 2014, it’s going to be exciting to see what 2015 has in store.
