With the holidays coming up, you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your kitchen… Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas dinner, New Year’s Eve parties, and Christmas cookie decorating galore. During all this time, you may start to notice that your kitchen’s looking a little outdated instead of being part of kitchen trends in 2020.
Chances are you spend more waking hours in your kitchen than any other room in your house. It should be up to date and a space that you love being in.
Read on to discover some of the kitchen trends in 2020 and how you can bring them into your kitchen.
1. Blue Cabinets
When most of us think of kitchen cabinets, we picture black, white, or brown cabinets. But thanks to a rising trend, more and more blue cabinets are making appearances in kitchens. This trend is a great way to add a pop of color to your kitchen without it getting overwhelming.
From light powder blues to rich Persian shades, there are a ton of options for painting your cabinets blue. The shade pairs well with any sort of kitchen hardware and most countertop materials.
If you’re replacing the countertops at the same time, we recommend going with white or wood materials.
On the subject of white countertops, next year we are getting classy in the kitchen. Marble has been popular for years, but in 2020, it’s going to experience a renaissance. And with all the features marble has to offer, it isn’t hard to see why.
Marble is one of the best countertop materials to choose if you’re looking to increase your home’s value. It comes in a variety of colors, and it never goes out of style. If you don’t like the price tag of genuine marble, quartz countertops can be a great way to achieve the look for less.
3. Subway Tile
If you’re looking for a modern, clean aesthetic for your kitchen, it’s hard to beat the look of the subway tile. This tile is easy to install, and it instantly freshens up a kitchen.
It’s great for small spaces, and it comes in a variety of colors, so you can use it no matter what your decorating scheme is for your kitchen.
Subway tile is most popular as a backsplash option, especially behind the range. But you can also cover your entire kitchen wall with it if you want a uniform, clean look. There are also a lot of ways to arrange the subway tile to get the vibe you want for your kitchen.
4. Integrated Appliances
When you’re designing a kitchen, it can be frustrating to try to design around the appliances. You can have a lovely vintage kitchen look going, and then if you smack a stainless steel dishwasher or refrigerator in the middle of it, it ruins everything. That’s why integrated appliances are gaining so much popularity in 2020.
People are covering their appliances with paneling and built-ins.
Your refrigerator can look like just another cabinet, and your dishwasher could disguise itself as a stack of drawers under your sink. This can also help cover mismatched appliances, which could save you thousands on your remodel.
5. Fewer Upper Cabinets
Kitchen designs in 2020 are going to be all about space – lots of light and airy, clean, open vibes. And one great way to make this happen is to pull out your upper cabinets. We know, this may sound crazy, but if you have a good enough pantry, you don’t need that space.
Taking down your upper cabinets can open up your kitchen and make it seem larger and airier.
If you’re short, you probably can’t reach most of your upper cabinets anyhow. Move everything into the pantry, ditch the upper cabinets, and put in some windows for some glorious natural light in your kitchen.
6. Farmhouse Sinks
Have you ever wondered why we all bother piling up dishes on both sides of our sinks and why there’s never enough room to fit them all? In 2020, we are ditching those old two-sided sinks for something far more practical. Farmhouse sinks are taking over, and we are here for this transformation.
Farmhouse sinks have only one basin, and they’re considerably bigger than traditional sinks.
They offer plenty of space to hold all your dishes, even if your family is big, so you never have to pile dishes on the counter while you try to clear out the sink. They also make it much easier to wash stockpots and other large pieces.
7. Induction Cooking
If you’re going for a sleek look in your kitchen, induction cooktops are the best. Not only are these a safe option, but they also look incredibly snazzy and help keep your kitchen more energy-efficient. They don’t put heat out into the kitchen, so you won’t have to have your air conditioner duking it out against your stove in the summertime.
Induction cooktops stay cool to the touch, so you don’t have to worry about little hands getting burned on hot stoves. Conduction stoves also mean you don’t need a vent hood.
This opens up your layout options a ton, especially if you’re going with the no upper cabinets look.
