Interested in what is happening in kitchens in 2020?

If you are planning on remodeling or building in 2020, you’ll need to check out the latest kitchen trends. From unique backsplashes, to open shelving, even color tones, we’ll explore ideas that will inspire you and expand your design ideas in the kitchen.

First, when it comes to cabinets in the kitchen, having cabinet doors has always been the norm, however in 2020, more cabinets tend to have open shelving.  Yes, doors are literally coming off, and the transparency of seeing what is in your cupboard is the movement. (ELLE Decor, 2020) More industrial shelving is being implemented too. This trend allows for displaying dinnerware, glassware and now antiques and vintage glasses, pots, and pans. 

Backsplashes seem to have taken on a whole new meaning in the kitchen in 2020. Sebring Design explores this concept in the article “ 9 Top Trends In Kitchen Backsplash Design for 2020.” According to the article, homeowners are not limiting how high the backsplash goes, they are taking the kitchen backsplash right to the top of the ceiling in some instances. In addition, there are no limits to the type of materials that you can use for backsplashes; tile, porcelain, marble, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, zinc, even wood backsplashes. Use your imagination. 

It’s all about color in 2020 too. From dark and light shades of blues and greens to striking blacks, to warm hues like yellow with an old-world charm, the colors for cabinets are out there according to two articles, “The Top Kitchen Cabinet Paint Colors for 2020”  and  “7 Paint Colors We’re Loving for Kitchen Cabinets in 2020”.

If you have a pet, you’re going to love this idea in the kitchen. A place for your doggie to eat, doggie cantinas are what we are talking about. According to research by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), 68 percent of US households include at least one pet. In 2020, we are pet-focused, having your pets hang out with you in the kitchen.

Let’s talk countertops. According to Keystone Granite and Tile, “Engineered quartz tops the list for kitchen countertops and has for a few years. They are extremely durable, non-porous, low maintenance, and available in a wide range of colors, patterns, thickness, edge treatments, and finishes. Many homeowners replaced their kitchen countertops to update them with quartz, and its popularity is likely to continue through 2020 and beyond.” Marble and even wood grain are trending in countertops in 2020.

This year is the year of the kitchens. There are a lot of new trends mixing in with old traditions. Maybe your next kitchen cabinet design will be more of an open concept?
