Now that we have finally entered into a new decade, what better time to revamp your kitchen with some of the best new kitchen trends for 2020?
Long gone are the days where the kitchen was a cold dark room hidden at the back of the house where the only thing that went on there was cooking and dish cleaning.
The kitchen has now become the focal point of our homes and provides a place where families can gather together and talk over breakfast in the morning or during the preparation of your evening meals.
With plenty of new and innovative designs to choose from, it can often be overwhelming when deciding on what route to take with your new kitchen overhaul. In this article, we will look at some of the best kitchen trends of the moment that you can implement into your home to give it that touch up that it deserves.
Colorful Kitchen Tiles
Who doesn’t love a bit of color? Inject a bit of life into your kitchen with some colorful kitchen tiles that can genuinely make it stand out as a focal point in your home.
Whether you want to add some stylish backsplash designs with some colorful tiles or to spruce up your flooring, you can choose from a wide range of colors that have come back around this year.
Over the past few years, the all-white kitchen has been all the rage. While this will most likely never go out of fashion due to it’s clean and clinical look, the time to add a splash of color seems to have arrived.
Why not opt for some calming blue tones to give your kitchen a more relaxed feel? Or how about some beautiful rustic colors to give your home that farm-house feel.
Whatever you decide, make sure that the scheme will last for at least 4-5 years. Choose a color that will keep you feeling good for the long term – that means avoiding anything too extreme and shocking.
Unexpected Color Mixes
To keep in the theme of colors – now is the time to get creative with the latest kitchen trends. You have so many potential canvases to use for your color arrangements; the kitchen floor, backsplash designs, custom cabinets, and even your appliances.
Feel free to take the shackles off and have an experiment with your kitchen cabinet color scheme. Color choice is something deeply personal to all of us, so take your time with it and don’t feel constrained to the regular color schemes, get adventurous! Buying new expensive cabinets is not necessary, consider cabinet refacing.
The kitchen island has been a popular trend for many years now. It has become a status symbol for stylish homeowners while adding an extra functional aspect to the kitchen. But now its 2020, the time for bigger and better has arrived – and what’s better than one island? Two islands!
If you are lucky enough to have a larger home and space isn’t an issue, then you should surely consider inserting a double island into your kitchen design.
It can be extremely useful in terms of functionality, one island for the preparation, and one island for cooking/serving of the food. This is especially helpful in busier kitchens where there may be more than one meal being prepared at any given time.
You can opt for two symmetrical islands next to each other, one larger and one smaller, or you can even get creative and mix up the materials and color scheme on each. The possibilities are endless.
Matching Countertops and Backsplash
One of the most asked questions when it comes to kitchen design is if the countertops and backsplash designs should be made out of the same material?
The answer for 2020 is, yes! Having a sense of uniformity in your kitchen looks fantastic, and if you choose from the right materials, it can really make your kitchen ooze with class.
Whether you want to go for a subtle quartz finish, a granite style, or even a marble look, your kitchen will look truly stunning if you can pull off a stylish matching countertop and backsplash.
Okay, this one may seem a little far fetched at first, but hear us out. There has been a rising trend of having open cabinetry, and it appears that 2020 is the year it is really catching on.
It may seem crazy to want to have all of your clutter on display for all of your guests to see; however, if it is done right, it can look incredibly stylish and daring.
It is best coupled with a minimalistic design; otherwise, the clitter would become overwhelming and would dampen any of the aesthetics that open cabinetry would bring in the first place.
If the thought of having totally exposed cabinetry is little too much for you, then maybe you could consider experimenting by having just one section of your kitchen. That way, you can still hide away all your kitchen clutter while still getting that chic minimalistic look.
