The kitchen is often the heart of the home and the main focal point. It’s used to cook food, entertain guests and also as a family space, to do homework and catch up. If you want to turn your dream kitchen into a reality, join us as we look at what kitchen trends will be big in 2020.
1. Stunning Splashbacks
Both a practical and decorative addition, splashbacks are a great way to get creative in the kitchen and can easily be adapted to match the rest of your kitchen space. No matter what aesthetic you’re going for, the colour choices and finishes are endless, with marble, quartz, glass, wood and steel becoming an increasingly popular choice.
2. Statement Sinks
The trend of statement sinks will continue to reign in 2020, with sinks designed with intricate details, stunning metallics and hammered finishes enhancing kitchens. They pair perfectly with the just as popular feature taps, so why not combine both and get ahead of the curve, adding a unique finish to your space.
3. Bright Colours
Stainless steel is definitely on it’s way out and colour is making a huge comeback. The solid trend of bold and bright stoves is a perfect addition to any space, especially to make it pop. This will create a brilliantly striking look, especially when you incorporate accessories and small appliances in matching colours.
4. Dramatic & Dark
Throughout 2018 and 2019, we saw many kitchen designs utilising the deep navy colour trend, but 2020 will see black becoming a new trend in a big way. It may be an intimidating colour to work with, but when done right, it can bring a luxurious touch of elegance to your space. Pair black with textured woods to add a rustic, homely charm.
5. Open Shelving
Choosing open shelves can allow you to showcase all your beautiful kitchenwares, among other heirlooms and trinkets. Not only will it bring an excellent focal point, but it also means everything is easy to find, especially if you keep everyday items on the lowest, most accessible shelf.
6. Fluted Glass
Fluted glass has had its time at various points throughout history and the latest revival is firmly here. On cabinets, fluted glass can be a great way to add a lot of interest, bounce light around the kitchen and add character whilst still staying within the simplicity of modern design – offering privacy.
7. Concealed Storage
Sliding doors and hidden drawers are a versatile, yet discreet way to tuck away appliances and maximum usable space in your kitchen. If you have limited kitchen space, storage is essential for stopping unnecessary clutter and creating a nice environment to live in and entertain in.
8. Kitchen Islands
There’s nothing new about incorporating the kitchen islands trend, but its appearance in kitchen designs isn’t slowing down any time soon. However, gaining popularity is using the kitchen island as a dinner table. Islands are no longer simply used as an additional worktop and storage space, as many are turning to them as breakfast bars and dining tables to maximise the flow as well as the functionality of the space.
9. Patterned Flooring
The statement floor tile is an excellent way to add some subtle impact to your space. With a huge range of patterned tiles available on the market, there’ll be one out there to fit your kitchen style and have an impact on setting the tone of the look of the room.
10. Concealed Cooker Hoods
If you feel as though you want to direct more attention to your appliances, backsplash or kitchen accessories, then you’re going to want to embrace this new trend. Let your other kitchen elements steal the show with a sleek and minimalist concealed cooker hood.
