Are you considering a kitchen remodel in 2020? The new kitchen design trends are about personalization with many features in a range of textures, colors and patterns. The idea behind these hot trends is to improve your cooking areas in ways that tug at your heartstrings.
Below are some current ideas for your kitchen remodel.
Brighten Things With More Lighting
Lighting is really setting the tone for kitchens this year. A nice combination of natural, ambient and task lighting make the space ideal for cooking and entertaining in the daytime and evening. You can use LED lights in the upper cabinets which puts the focus on the cabinets while adding a lighting effect. Note that battery-operated LEDs can be installed anywhere in your home.
Butler’s Pantries Are Becoming Popular
For most people, storage is vital in a good kitchen. The focus is on solutions that make it easy to get rid of counter clutter. For example, cabinetry in a kitchen island can provide a great place for storage, as can a big pantry with specific compartments so everything has a place.
Items such as pull-out shelves and multi-level risers also can provide more storage. If you have enough square footage, having a butler’s pantry is the greatest way to solve the storage problem. A butler’s pantry is connected to your kitchen and has some appliance in it such as a dishwasher that you can run while having guests in your kitchen.
Add Paint and Decorative Accessories for Personalization
Pops of bright color and decorative accents are vital to personalize your space. You can use bright white with a soothing shade of blue on the backsplash and decorative accents, for example.
Rethink What Goes in the Kitchen
Some of the new styles in kitchens this year focus on the cabinets. Some like to add two-toned cabinetry for a fresh look, with some people liking gold accents and trim pieces. Mirrored doors bounce light and make your kitchen feel larger than it is.
Also, you can add a black custom range hood. It really gets people’s attention. Some people like to add a dual fuel range that has gas and electric options.
Decorate With Elements of Texture in Natural Materials
Warmer hues that make people think of the outdoors such as browns, greys, and beiges are popular this year. But rather than a flat or monochrome feel, interesting textures place the materials front and center. For example, have a mashup of several wood textures that are paired with brick and subway tiles. For your lighting fixtures, consider warmer tones, such as copper, golden, and even charcoal gray or black.
Add Excitement to a White Kitchen With Colorful Appliances
Many homeowners want to put more color in their kitchens. Adding bright-colored appliances is a fine way to accomplish this. A bright range or fridge in a bright green, blue or yellow can inject some personality in a white kitchen.
Some kitchens in beach areas may have a turquoise stove and fridge to provide a cheerful tone. A warm wood floor with exposed beams that combines with traditional white cabinetry provides a warm and fresh aesthetic.
Try a FarmHouse Look
Cooking spaces that are inspired by farmhouses are getting even more charming with old-time features that create warmth and depth. Many people are choosing retro-vintage detailing, such as a small Heartland range that is new but looks old.
So, these are some of the hot trends in kitchens in 2020. As you can see there are many exciting options available that can really make your kitchen a place for efficient cooking but also a focal point for guests to relax and really enjoy your refreshing kitchen look and feel.
