Oh, I just love beautiful kitchens. The heart and workhorse of the home. So I believe it should be designed to suit multiple functions…. right? Right! Kitchen Trends For 2020- The Workhorse Of The Home.
From millwork to backsplashes, colour palettes, and design styles, we looked at top designers’ kitchens to see what trends are most popular on the home front this year.
SILVER-TIPPED LIGHT BULBS – Shelia Bridges Design
Recessed lighting does the job in a functional yet stylish way. The bronze finish matches the counter stools and cabinet hardware.
CONTRASTING COUNTERTOPS – Allison Babcock Design
Contrasting counter materials with cabinetry colour add major drama to a kitchen.
COOL COLORS – Achille Salvagni Atelier
I love clean lines and no clutter. The beautiful blue in the cabinets adds colour without being loud. The bronze light fixture and hardware along with the pops of yellow add warmth to an otherwise cool palette.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE COUNTERTOPS – Michelle Gerson Interiors
There is a big move away from marble countertops as people want surfaces that are beautiful but not vulnerable to staining. These counters are nano glass from Artistic Tile.
NAVY MILLWORK – Ariel Okin Interiors
White kitchen with navy millwork. It blends beautifully with marble and brass.
SLAB BACKSPLASH – Bailey Austin Design
A slab backsplash is so clean, yet it adds the right amount of drama to a kitchen.
COLORFUL KITCHEN TILE – Christine Markatos Design
A backsplash is the best place to add a pop of colour into a kitchen design without having to do a full kitchen renovation.
DOUBLE ISLANDS – Courtney Hill Interiors
Expanding a kitchen’s function and maintaining traffic flow, double islands in the kitchen are an integral feature.
STEEL HOODS – Barta Interiors
Steel hoods are the new trend of 2020. There is a huge surge in custom kitchen hoods that steer away from the boring stainless steel or basic painted wood.
UPDATED CLASSIC STYLE – Fisher Weisman
Updated classic design for kitchens, amping up the glamour factor without making you feel oddly out of place having coffee in a bathrobe.
UNEXPECTED COLOR POPS – Massucco Warner
Using colour in unexpected places like appliances and hoods. If you love colour, it’s a fun way to incorporate it and make a regular appliance feel special and custom.
GRAVITY-DEFYING ISLANDS – St. Charles New York
With these unique islands, the functional elements of the kitchen recede to reveal more space and become an extension of the architecture itself.
WARM FINISHES – Marie Flanigan Interiors
There are a time and a place for a grey-and-white kitchen, but warm finishes are on the rise. When done well, old-school wood cabinetry can be modern and fresh.
OPEN SHELVING FOR DECOR – Laura U Interior Design
I like seeing kitchen shelving that holds antique cookware, gilded vintage glasses, and copper pots baring their patina.
SLEEK CABINETRY – LH Designs
We are seeing less and fewer crown mouldings used on the tops of the upper cabinets. People opting for a cleaner look that isn’t too decorative at the top.
DARK COUNTERTOPS – Meyer Interiors
With natural materials and earth tones taking over, kitchens are following suit.
MATCHING THE COUNTERTOP AND BACKSPLASH – Tina Rich Design
Extending the countertop material up the backsplash allows you to streamline the number of materials in a kitchen and create a clean and contemporary look.
