The 7 hottest new kitchen trends of 2020
As 2019 is slowly coming to a close, we felt that it is time to start looking forward. The kitchen design arena is constantly changing, and while there are always timeless options, keeping an eye out for new incoming trends can be the unique factor we are all looking for. We have included below 7 of the hottest trends going into 2020.
- Dark appliance finishes
Stainless steel is classic and white is traditional but other appliance finishes look more current. You can add drama to your 2020 kitchen with black stainless steel, and you won’t be alone. Black stainless appliances have already made their way into 10% of upgraded kitchens.
2. Mixed metal kitchen hardware
The right hardware will update your kitchen and tie all the elements together, so don’t be afraid to mix it up. You will personalize the look of your kitchen by changing up the hardware, so pick a couple of metals and use them for the knobs, pulls, and plumbing. While a cool brushed nickel finish looks fresh and remains popular, rose gold will look dated in 2020. If you want a warm metal, try copper or brass instead. Matte black has a bold, minimalist feel and grabs attention, as long as you don’t overdo it. If you like the look, try it on your faucet and use different metals on the drawer pulls.
3. Specialty sinks to wash dishes
If you live alone or with one other person, chances are that you don’t run the dishwasher every day—there aren’t nearly enough dishes to fill it. In comes a speciality sink that allows you to organize and wash your dishes without the dreaded disorganisation that plagues sinks around the world
4. Full-length backsplashes
Whether you choose plain white subway tile or create a colourful large-scale mosaic, backsplashes don’t have to go from the counter to the bottom of the wall cabinets anymore. Instead, the backsplash can rise all the way up to the ceiling. This gives the kitchen a cohesive look and creates an eye-catching focal point.
5.Colourful kitchen cabinets
White cabinetry is classic and will probably never go out of style but it’s not your only choice. You’ll be seeing many different shades of green in kitchens all over Instagram in the upcoming year. Pale mint and olive work well in farmhouse kitchens or you can go bright with chartreuse or clover green for a contemporary flavor. If you feel more drawn to blue than green, cabinets in dark blue will still be popular in 2020, especially on the lower cabinets. Either color will look great if you complement it with wood flooring and white backsplash tiles.
6.Removable wall paper
A peelable adhesive wall covering that you can apply yourself and take down when you’re tired of it, temporary wallpaper can be a kitchen’s new best friend. It will add great colour and texture that brings the walls to life, without requiring a long-term commitment. When design trends change, you can switch it out without making a major investment.
7.White quartz countertops
Although dark counters can look sophisticated, white countertops are still the most popular going into 2020. Engineered quartz and natural stone are fighting it out neck-and-neck for the most desirable, so you can choose according to your taste. Quartz comes in a wide variety of styles that emulate stone and is easy to maintain. New lifetime sealers make natural stone a viable low-maintenance option. The surface that won’t look new in your 2020 kitchen is a busy, colourful granite. Whichever material you select, go for a “quieter” and more neutral look.
