Your kitchen is likely so much more than merely a room where you cook food. For many families, it is a gathering place for entertaining, a space to do homework, and an important community hub. When you decide to renovate or redo your kitchen, you have the chance to update both the functionality and the look. Many of the top kitchen trends of 2020 do both of those things, and unlike trends in other areas of life, these will likely have significant staying power.
There’s a current shift away from the stark white and achromatic combos that have characterized modern kitchen design. Many homeowners are opting for a return to warmth, using wood cabinets and coordinating natural counter materials without losing the modern vibe.
Counters That Contrast and Perform
Contrasting colors always adds a great visual bang, and the counters are an excellent way to do this. Choose counter material and colors that starkly contrast your cabinets for a great visual pop. At the same time, look for a material that is durable, easy to clean, and high-performance, which often means a move away from marble, which stains easily.
Traditionally, adding a kitchen island has been a great choice if you have the space, but now the trend is moving toward making the space for not one but two islands. This allows you to have even more prep space or to separate the prep space from the gathering space. If both islands have a sink, it can also allow you to prep on one and stage clean-up on the other.
Another popular trend is to incorporate bold color in accent pieces. You could use the color in the backsplash, a specialty appliance, an accent wall, or even as the seats or cushions on your chairs or stools.
The hood over the stove is becoming much more than a boring necessity, with a move away from the ho-hum stainless classic. Custom-designed range hoods that provide a unique focal point to the kitchen are very popular this year, and as a kitchen necessity, they won’t go unused or fall out of favor.
