11 Feb Kitchen Remodeling Trends in 2020
A new year brings another new opportunity to take advantage of the latest kitchen remodeling trends.
In the previous year, whites and light colors were prevalent, but that’s expected to change. Additionally, kitchens are more than ever the focal point of a family home and filled with smart technology to make life easier.
To liven up your home this year, check out these kitchen design trends going into the rest of 2020.
Slab Countertops and Backsplashes
Granite and quartz countertops have reigned supreme for some time, and for good reason. They’re highly resistant to wear, only require basic maintenance to seal and protect, and can last a lifetime. Slabs can be cut and stylized to fit your home and personal tastes. Nothing gives a clean, sleek, high-end look quite like quartz countertops.
Kitchen Islands with Utility
Modern kitchen design trends are seeing less traditional kitchen cabinets attached to the wall space. Those are being traded for more slim, low-profile storage spaces that blend in with the flat surface.
However, that means homeowners will need a different space to store goods and work. Whether you utilize a larger kitchen island, or opt for double islands, you can get more out of your kitchen space. These islands can come with additional kitchen cabinetry, a sink that’s removed from the cooking space, and a lot of other utilities. Make your kitchen space work for you!
Dark Colors and Streamlined Designs
White colors will always be timeless in a kitchen but expect to see more stained natural woods and darker paint colors. For example, you can create striking contrasts by pairing your lighter kitchen countertop with dark-colored cabinets. Deep hues such as navy, black, or dark purple work wonderfully to give your kitchen just enough color.
To go along with it, modern kitchens are continuing to adapt streamlined designs. This is referring to clean lines throughout your cabinets, countertops, and islands. Everything should flow together seamlessly.
A huge trend happening in 2020 is turning your range and hood into a statement piece. They can be a costly investment but are sure to create a striking accent to your wood tones on either side. Instead of having an ordinary, flat-colored kitchen hood, make it match your personality by introducing a high-quality piece that brings the room together.
Get Playful with a Pop of Color
As the kitchen becomes more of a social focal point, homeowners are starting to splash some personality in by way of a standout color choice.
This is your opportunity to get creative by splashing a wall with a different color like a louder green or blue. You can also make your appliances such as your oven or hood this alternate color. It’s a great way to make your kitchen custom to your tastes.
Make Your Kitchen Smart
We’ve entered an age of automation. Gadgets like Google Home, Alexa, and Siri are more prevalent than ever. These electronic devices can be integrated with modern appliances and lighting solutions. Bring your kitchen into the digital age by getting light fixtures that you can control with your voice or smartphone.
You can also install motion sensor sinks, smart refrigerators that check your grocery stocks, or coffee makers that operate based upon your personal schedule. Take advantage of modern technology in your kitchen!
