2020 is almost over, yet we’ve had plenty of time to distinguish between the various style- and design trends that have come and gone this year. Especially the ones intended for the heart of all homes: the kitchen.
Let’s catch up with nine of the trendiest kitchen renovation ideas for 2020 (as collected from our ever-growing collection of professionals like Kitchen Planners, Architects, etc.)…
1. Stone style
Although it never really left us, marble has made quite the ‘comeback’ this year, especially in modern/contemporary cooking spaces.
2. Light woods
Pale woods are officially back in fashion, especially the ones flaunting rich textures like subtle-grained ash, pale oak, and light walnut. Bonus points if you manage to blend your soft woods with raw stone finishes, as shown in this delicious example.
3. Dark and dramatic colours
Black and dark greys are quite popular as accent colours, yet 2020 seems to be favouring darker colour palettes for kitchens. Thus, instead of opting for a single dark accent wall, for instance, go deeper with dark-tinted cabinetry, an island, lighting fixtures, etc.
Just be sure to balance your dark tones with lighter, neutral colours to avoid a gloomy (and visually oppressive) space.
4. Pops of colour
From window treatments to wall options, kitchens present numerous opportunities to play with colour. But to get the colour game right, start by deciding how permanent you want those new kitchen colours to be.
It is believed that kitchen colours, whether it’s for the walls or furniture, should last for at least five years. Thus, look beyond immediate styles and colour trends and commit to a palette that’s going to keep your kitchen looking stylish and practical for years to come.
