Nothing exciting ever happens when you play it safe and the trends for 2020 will encourage you to take a leap and try some of these new ideas to energize your home. Keep in mind that these are trends, not fads, they will be around for the next 10 years. So don’t be shy, give your kitchen a new point of view and enjoy.
1. Two & Three Toned Kitchens
We are mixing it up in the kitchen and bath with complimentary wood tones and color options. It is our favorite way to bring warmth, color and texture into the design. Adding in Pantone’s Color of the Year, Classic Navy will help the cause.
2. Slabs migrate from countertop to backsplash
The veining in stone slabs is so appreciated that we are finding new places to view as art by having it move up the wall to the backsplash and walls.
3. Countertop Options
There is movement away from granite and towards quartz (man-made) and quartzite (natural stone). Add in a contrasting kitchen island in wood or butcher block from Grothouse and you round out this fashion forward look. Also new ultra thin materials are gaining in popularity to offer a more modern point-of-view.
4. Range Hoods take center stage
Artesian crafted with stunning materials like this hood from Raw Urth, we love creating statement pieces in the kitchen that set the tone for the entire home.
5. The Island Life
Extra-large and multifunctional islands are here to stay as the hub of the home. They are housing appliances, refrigeration, storage and charging stations. Also the island is center stage as a place for casual dining and gatherings with guests.
6. Luxury Appliances
This trend is more about superior function than status. The newest flexi-fridges have special compartments that transition from refrigerator to freezer and advanced refrigeration systems that extend the life of food for days beyond the older models. (Very handy for a weekend home.)
7. Lighting for Beauty and Function
Oversized statement pendants over islands as well as detail lighting under cabinet and on cabinet interiors will increase visibility and provide a highly functioning work space.
8. Beverage Bars Expand
No longer an afterthought, beverage bars are practical solutions that are popping up in every room. Coffee, smoothie, wine, or snacks, the beverage bar is at your service.
The general consensus during most remodels is the desire to do it right and first time. This is the end of disposable design era. Most homeowners want to incude all of the bells and whistles to enjoy now and not wait to upgrade their kitchen to prepare it for sale.
Pushing the boundaries of what a kitchen should be, we are featuring cabinetry that looks like quality furnishing. Many kitchens are even including comfortable upholstery and decorative items that encourage comfort and livability.
