Are you planning on remodeling your kitchen soon? Now is your chance to incorporate the latest trends in kitchens and make it a space in your home that you will love to be in year-round.
Keep reading to learn the hottest 2020 design trends for your upcoming kitchen remodel.
1. Kitchen and Cabinet Color Trends
White cabinets are still a popular look for 2020, but depending on your personal style you might want to consider adding a splash of color to the overall look. Depending on the mood you want to set in your space you might enjoy adding a dramatic wall color such as black with rustic textured wood cabinets or keep it bright with a lemony yellow wall and light-colored cabinets.
The most important thing to keep in mind when painting your kitchen walls is to keep them all the same color. In the past, it was popular to paint one wall different as an accent wall. That practice has fallen out of fashion and may give your remodeled kitchen a dated feel.
Adding wallpaper to your kitchen is also on-trend again, and gives you an opportunity to add some interest to your wall space without having to use a backsplash. If you are worried about the pattern or the permanence of using wallpaper, there are plenty of peel-and-stick wallpapers that allow you to enjoy the fun new designs. They are not only easy to install, but they are also easy to remove as well.
2. Larder Cupboards
Larder cupboards, or pantries, have always been a staple for kitchens but in the last few years have really gained popularity. A larder cupboard is a great advantage to food storage for your kitchen since you don’t have to utilize what precious space you have in your kitchen cabinets to store your dry goods.
Another great advantage of having a kitchen larder is you can possibly free up a whole wall of cupboards. This will allow the kitchen to feel much more open or can free up space to add a breakfast nook or add a nice piece of artwork to your space. This adds a nice welcoming feel to your space.
If your current kitchen doesn’t have a larder cupboard you should consider adding it in as part of your kitchen remodeling plan.
3. Sleek Appliances
Kitchen appliances can add a touch of style to your kitchen, make it more beautiful and help simplify your life. A new trend that realtors and retailers are anticipating is appliances that are not only environmentally friendly and are low in energy usage.
Other appliances that are gaining in popularity are those that can connect to your household “smart” devices. These features can allow you to connect using your Google Home or Amazon Echo device and can let you remote start the dishwasher or check and see how many eggs are in the refrigerator. These qualities are especially appealing for those who are constantly on the go and need an extra hand from time to time.
4. Backsplash Essentials
The backsplash is a term that describes the space between the bottom of your cabinets and the top of your countertop. Originally it was meant to protect your walls from any spills and splatters that may happen from cooking or cleaning the dishes but nowadays it also serves a more aesthetic roll in the kitchen.
Your kitchen backsplash can help add a touch of your personality and style and can act as a statement wall in your kitchen. The biggest backsplash trends for 2020 is using dark colors to make small kitchens look bigger, mosaic-like patterns of tiles in bright or bold colors, and porcelain or ceramic tiles.
5. Stone Countertops
Countertops are not only essential for food prep and cooking but they can help complement your wall color, cabinets, and backsplash. Light-colored countertops are a popular trend that will continue in 2020, especially when paired with light or white colored cabinetry.
Natural stone such as marble or quartz adds a level of sophistication and takes the style of your kitchen to the next level. Not only does it look great but it also functions well in the kitchen. The natural stone stays cool, resist’s moisture and wear-and-tear, making it a great combination of style and function.
6. Updated Flooring
Kitchen floors need to be able to withstand the heavy foot traffic, spills, and accidents that can happen on a day-to-day basis. You’ll want to find something that is not only functional but looks great in your space.
Some kitchen flooring trends for 2020 are using long, wide wood planks (either engineered or hardwood), lighter colors of blonde or honey, and waterproof flooring such as vinyl. Another popular trend is laying your flooring in a herringbone pattern.
A herringbone pattern is a great way to distinguish the kitchen as a separate room from the rest of the house, especially if you have an open floor plan.
7. Handleless Cabinets and Gold Fixtures
A hot new design feature of contemporary kitchens is the streamlined, free-flowing look. This means that cabinets without hardware are all the rave and is easily achieved with the modern advances in technology.
Cabinet manufacturers now offer push to open and close doors and soft-close drawers. This makes it easier to get what you need without having to use a cabinet doorknob or handle.
Another sleek addition to the kitchen trends for 2020 is the popularity of using gold fixtures and sinks. These fixtures are not only functional but add a nice statement of style to your new kitchen.
