Top Kitchen Design Trends for 2020

Your kitchen is one of the rooms you see and use the most in your home. If you have an uninviting or inefficient kitchen, it could impact your desire to cook your own meals or entertain family and friends.

With the right kitchen design, you can have an enjoyable space to gather for quality time and healthy meals. Take a look at the top kitchen design trends for 2020 to find inspiration for your kitchen remodel.

Smart Technology

Smart technology is quickly making its way into every part of the home, especially the kitchen. You can find smart appliances like refrigerators and stoves with voice technology and remote-control features that make your kitchen more efficient and user-friendly.

Quartz Countertops

Though marble countertops will always be in style, they have some downsides that make them impractical for some kitchens. If you’re always cooking, quartz could be a much better fit that provides the look of natural stone without the high price or risk of staining.

Kitchen Larders

In older homes, you’ll often find kitchen larders or pantries that were used to store dry goods and preserved foods. The kitchen larder is no longer part of the built-in cabinetry, but now functions as a standalone cabinet that’s more space-conscious. Kitchen larders can be as large or small as you want, and if you have shelves that you use for dry goods, consider putting attractive doors on them for a more pleasing look.

A Pop of Color

Clean, white kitchens will never go out of style because they create an open feeling, especially in smaller areas. White kitchens can have a boring look, however, so one of the hottest trends is to add a pop of color to give the space more visual interest. You can choose a colorful backsplash, bright multicolored tiles, a painted island or a painted fifth wall on your ceiling to brighten the space.

Reclaimed Materials

Reclaimed decor is a popular trend throughout the home, and now it’s made its way to the kitchen. If you’re installing pre-fabricated cabinets, you can find natural and eco-friendly wood that gives it an upcycled look or opt for truly reclaimed cabinets that are made from recycled plastic, bamboo and an array of other materials. This not only helps the environment, but it also gives your kitchen a beautiful, rustic appeal.

Mixed Metals

Gold and copper hardware was a top trend in 2019, but for 2020, homeowners are taking it up a notch with mixed metals. You can use brass or nickel for cabinet hardware, gold or silver for appliances, bronze for your lighting fixtures and a neutral matte color for your faucet to give your space an eclectic and appealing look.
