Kitchen Design Trends in 2020

kitchen design trends in 2020

The new year brings new beginnings. So what better way to ring in 2020 than to refresh your home decor? And there’s no better place to start than the heart of the home: the kitchen!

While some kitchen design trends are fleeting, the great ones always outlast their time in the spotlight. Those are the ones we’re after.

We asked some of our top home decor franchise owners to share some of the most exciting and enduring trends coming to the home front this year. And they delivered! Read on for a run down of some of the best designer-approved backsplashes, color palettes, and design styles for 2020!

  • Navy millwork. As much as we love a classic white kitchen, home decor franchises across the country are reporting requests for navy millwork. A 2018 Queens rowhouse renovation featured in Dezeen really showed off this clean, modernist aesthetic, pairing the navy cabinetry with white countertops, mid-century furnishings, and a dash of on-palette modern artwork to tie everything together. Navy millwork complements marble and brass materials.

  • Slab backsplashes. Slab backsplashes are as trendy as they are timeless. And it’s not hard to imagine why they’re coming back in force in 2020. They’re clean, dramatic, and they scream luxury without costing a fortune. And when matched with the countertops, they create a big, bold look.

  • Double islands. Kitchen designs are putting functionality first in 2020, and few features make the kitchen more efficient than double islands. They’re a great way to divide the kitchen space between meal preparation and eating or gathering, and it greatly improves the flow of traffic.

  • Custom kitchen hoods. Home decor franchises started to notice the uptick in requests for custom kitchen hoods late last year. Homeowners are getting excited about how custom kitchen hoods can step up as focal points and conversation starters, instead of fading into the background. Steel and plasterwork are especially in demand. Both provide a great option for customers that want to steer clear of basic stainless steel or painted wood.

  • Warm finishes. Greys and whites will always work in kitchens, but the demand for warm finishes is heating up. Warm pine or walnut cabinets, soft natural countertops, and antique brass pendant lights all work beautifully.
  • Sleeker cabinetry. More and more homeowners are opting for stripped down cabinets that trade crown molding and decoration for clean minimalism. These cabinets can offer more storage space (since some molding needs an interior shelf), and they’re usually going to be a little less expensive. If that sounds good, lucky you: it’s on-trend for 2020.

  • Eco-friendly kitchens. Sustainability continues to be a driving force in all markets, and home remodeling and decor are no different. You might want to consider cabinet refacing, which reuses existing frameworks and reduces waste, rather than a full-on replacement–it looks great and costs a fraction of what you’d expected. You might also think about working with green materials, like handmade tiles in materials like terra-cotta and cement, which work well with the slab backsplashes and warm, soulful looks mentioned earlier.
