For many, the kitchen is the hub of the home. It’s where you eat, work, and gather, and spend a majority of our time. Kitchen trends and design styles are always changing, but some are timeless, and meant to last as long as the rest of your home. These are just a few of the trends we are beginning to see in kitchens this year.
The continuation of material from countertop to ceiling makes for a modern, cohesive space.
Two islands provide extra space for cooking and entertaining, without taking away from the space in your kitchen. Function is a major component of islands. Double islands don’t have to be the same shape and size, and don’t necessarily have to be next to each other. Think about your kitchen and what you use it for to determine how two islands would be beneficial in the space.
This one is not limited to 2020. We have seen this trend for the past few years, but we are seeing more and more as large banks of wall cabinets are leaving the scene. Not only are open shelves a beautiful display piece, they add functionality to your space.
Countertops no longer have to be cluttered with all your plug-in appliances, taking up valuable, limited space. Appliance garages keep the things you don’t use daily neatly tucked away, easily accessible when needed. There are a variety of style for appliance garage, which makes it easy to find one that fits your needs and space.
Mixing finishes has become increasingly popular in bathrooms and kitchens in recent years. We’re no longer seeing as many kitchens where the cabinet pulls, plumbing, and lighting fixtures are all one metal finish. Keep in mind the finishes should still complement one another, but your kitchen certainly doesn’t have to be monochromatic.
These are just a glimpse at some of the kitchen trends popping up this year. Regardless of your design style, there is a trend you can incorporate that will fit your space.
