Kitchen Design Trends to Look for in 2020
MODERN FARMHOUSE KITCHEN: Elegance made comfortable and transitional to complement the style of your home. Soft creams and greys, warm finishes and subtle accents keep this look fresh. A custom island really completes the look!
OFF WHITE CASUAL KITCHEN CABINETS: As the design industry moves away from stark white shaker style cabinets, people continue to be drawn to the clean, bright look they present. Choosing an off white from cool grey to warm cream still brings the timelessness of white without the now dated sterility of absolute white. Contrast with warm wood toned flooring and modern stainless appliances.
MAPLE KITCHEN CABINETS: Gone are the days of natural maple as it has aged to bright yellows and mellow golds. Maple is available in a mix of complementary finishes to create striking contrasts and soft complements to meet the design needs of any homeowner. Mix painted maple finishes with soft stained finishes that show the subtle wood grain to create the look you want. Pair with stainless fixtures and appliances for a transitional look or add black hardware and light fixtures for a rustic or traditional appeal.
BOLD COLOR POPS: Mixing traditional finishes with bold pops of color create interest in a transitional kitchen. Islands continue to be the go-to piece for adding a snap of color. Shades of blue continue to top the trending choices for bold colors, but don’t let that stop you from adding your own personality to your kitchen design! Many cabinet brands offer custom options to get just the right color for your kitchen!
CHERRY WOOD CABINETS: Cherry wood cabinets are timeless and beautiful as always. Mix with lighter or darker contrasting shades to showcase your individual style. Your door style selection also helps to determine your kitchen’s overall look. Create an elegant space by selecting mitered doors with lots of detail or keep it casual with recessed paneled doors. Cherry is available in many shades from traditional reds to more modern grey-browns. No matter which hue you choose, the grain will show through beautifully and the finish will only get richer with age.
LARGE KITCHEN ISLANDS: Rather than have a separate formal dining room, many homeowners are opting for a larger kitchen with a substantial island with seating for the whole family. Remodelers looking to acquire this look may also look forward to planning some major renovating to remove partition walls to make room. Definitely work with an experienced contractor before attempting to knock down walls in your own home to be sure that they’re not load bearing!
BLACK ACCENTS: Matte black accents are trending for 2020! Whether you decide to feature a black island as a bold statement piece or keep it simple by updating with black cabinet door and drawer hardware and light fixtures, black is the finish to make your kitchen pop in 2020. It can also be used as a stark contrast to a new splash of bold color!
