Before looking at the 2016 kitchen and bath design trends, it is worth reflecting on a year passed. 2015 was a year of challenges, changes and uncertainty for much of the world. Yet again Vancouver and the North Shore remain some of the most beautiful and peaceful places to live, surrounded by mountains, ocean, and rain forest. Over this holiday season we should take a moment to be thankful, for how fortunate we are to live in such a magnificent place.
2015 has been a productive year for Coordinated Kitchen and Bath. On the colour front, our mother and daughter team of Nicole and Paula Phillips worked in tandem on the majority of our projects, providing colour and materials selection for many of our kitchen and bathroom renovation clients. Fellow colour specialist Natasha English also worked on some of our projects during our peak construction times. Our project management and sales team was also as busy as ever, working on kitchen and bathroom renovation projects on the North Shore and in Vancouver and Burnaby.
As a new year is set to begin, the question we hear from many of our new clients is what are the 2016 Kitchen and Bath Design Trends?
In the case of paint colours, Benjamin Moore’s paint colour of the year is Simply White OC-117, showing that white remains timeless and classic.
The Pantone colour of the year 2016 is rose quartz and serenity, “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”
Coordinated Kitchen and Bath is a Ceasarstone dealer, and their 2016’s material choice embraces more raw and natural elements, such as “raw concrete” and “urban safari”.
When it comes to cabinets and walls, the colour and design specialists at Coordinated Kitchen and Bath point to more natural finishes like real wood and grainy textures. These should be reflected in the latest offerings of cabinet lines we carry.
Fixtures and plumbing were the trend in 2015, with brushed brass/gold faucets and cabinet hardware taking the lead in modern designs. 2016 should see more of these elements in place, as shown by Aquabrass, which has many fixtures in these finishes.
For those who are less concerned about 2016 Kitchen and Bath Design trends, Coordinated Kitchen and Bath and its suppliers continue to offer timeless designs and styles that can fit almost every taste.
