Best Modern Kitchen Design Trends for 2020
1. Dark and Dramatic Colors in the Kitchen
Remodeling a kitchen comes with a lot of opportunities to play with colors ranging from flooring, cabinets, window treatment, and appliances. Although white and other neutral colors always look classic in any kitchen style, this year designers are experimenting with dark paint colors or wood stain colors. The popularity of all-white kitchens is slowly declining and dark-jewel tones like black, green, plum, emerald, and navy are making their way in.
2. Contrasting Countertops and Cabinets
To add a level of warmth and sophistication in the kitchen, remodelers are using contrasting materials for cabinets and countertops. It is a great approach to add an interesting twist to the kitchen’s personality and change the entire feel of the room. Dark granite countertops with white oak cabinets, white countertops with dark colors, or black countertops with neutral colors are becoming one of the hottest trends of 2020.
3. Statement Taps & Sinks
Sinks are not just used for washing dishes now. They serve as multipurpose workstations with drying racks and cutting boards etc. So, in order to meet the client’s demand for a sink that is not only functional but also provides a definitive style statement, companies are coming up with a wide range of taps, faucets, and sink designs. Brass, gold, and matte black faucets are trending these days. Clients are greatly inclined towards mixing rose gold, matte gold, and bright brass statement faucets with the rest of the kitchen appliances.
4. No Upper Cabinets and Open Shelves
As kitchen designs are moving towards keeping the space as clean as possible with the “less is more” formula”, the trend of removing upper cabinets is gaining speed from the past couple of years. Designers and remodelers are responding to their client’s wishes of achieving openness in the kitchen by getting rid of the upper cabinets and using open shelves instead. Open shelving keeps everything in sight and also looks pretty decent while making the entire space look bigger.
5. Return of Kitchen Larders
Modern larders are becoming one of the highly desired features of kitchens in 2020. They have transformed into a pantry or standalone cupboard and are large enough to house the majority of your dry goods. Larders free up the entire wall area in the kitchen that can either be kept free or be used for displaying beautiful artwork creating a relaxed kitchen environment in open plan living areas.
