If you're planning a renovation, you're in luck. These kitchen design ideas are to die for!

Bronze & copper

This year, it's time to bid adieu to the chrome and brushed nickel of your past. Kitchens everywhere are expected to be popping up bronze. And we're not just talking faucets — kitchen accessories are also likely to be replaced by a lovely bronzed hue. If you're not completely sold on the idea, maybe we can change your mind with this gorgeous copper-colored Kitchen Aid.

Shaker-style cabinets

The classic and stylish look of the colonial days is expected to make a huge comeback in 2015. The simple style is appealing to the eye and proves itself as a timeless design. Using American woods, the more expensive Shaker-style cabinets also have durability that will last you centuries, which makes the splurge worth every hard-earned penny.

All-white everything

Typically, we're used to seeing a white kitchen with stainless steel appliances. This isn't going to remain the case in 2015. Designers are taking a trip back to the '90s and opting for white appliances. Enjoying the seamless look from wall, to cabinet, to fridge; the design is clean, crisp and surprisingly inviting.

Sleek & sophisticated black

Had enough of the white trend? Go in the opposite direction toward 2015's craziest, yet classiest, trend yet — black. Looking sexy yet modern, black cabinets are popping up in homes all over the country. And how could you resist? The sleek design hides dirt, grime and looks absolutely astonishing with stripes, checkers and pretty much anything and everything.

Noteworthy cabinet shades

Like black, unconventional cabinet shades are definitely a common thread in 2015. Homeowners are leaning more toward grays, blues, teals, greens, beige and even shades as wild as red or pink. If not the entire kitchen, a statement set of cabinets is also rising in the ranks as an appealing choice for homeowners.

Farmhouse sinks

This year, the stainless steel sink is expected to go to the wayside. In its place are the charming farmhouse sinks that us French country kitchen addicts have been drooling over since 2012. The white chunky style is anticipated to be more than a fad and rather a staple in kitchens everywhere.

Open shelving

In 2015, it's time to show off your china! Exposed shelving is becoming all the rage and for good reason. And although one would think that open shelving would make the kitchen look crowded, the style does the exact opposite. Instead the space is given a cozy and relaxed spirit, which is exactly how a kitchen should feel in a home.
