The kitchen is a central hub of activity in most homes, and—as with all forms of interior decorating and design—is ever-changing and transforming as new ideas for kitchen trends develop and become popular.

When it comes to current kitchen trends of 2020, you’ll have quite a range of options to choose from. So whether you’re considering a full or partial kitchen remodel, browse through the collection of ideas and trends below.

Contrast with Warm Accent Tones

Some of the newest kitchen remodels of 2020 include two-toned kitchen spaces offset with warm accent tones. For example, you could choose to style your kitchen with bold blocks of dark grey contrasted with blocks of light cream, then tie everything together with warm honey-colored accents.

Marble or Quartz Countertops

Marble countertops have been around for a while, and it’s unlikely that they’re going to go out of style anytime soon. But engineered quartz countertops are growing in popularity as well. You can get a marble-looking countertop for cheaper, and it’s more stain-resistant.

Unique Tiling

The kitchen floor is becoming an area of interest. Designers and remodelers are increasingly using kitchen tiles that add texture and depth to a kitchen. You can choose a bright, bold hue, or opt for a neutral tone.

 

The Ceiling

Like the floor, the kitchen ceiling is also getting more attention than ever before. It’s an area ripe for decorating and adding to the overall feel of a kitchen. You can change it up by adding something like wood paneling or a splash of fun color to keep things interesting.

Statement Seating Pieces

Your kitchen stools or seating arrangements for the dining area are a great opportunity to combine color and unique design choices. Depending on the feel you’re going for in your kitchen, some bold, colorful seating arrangements might be better, or you can choose a simple and modern design.

Wallpaper

It’s becoming a bit of a trend to put up wallpaper in kitchens. There are options out there that are as easily removed as they are applied so you don’t have to commit to just one design. Your kitchen wallpaper can evolve with your tastes.

Eye-Catching Backsplash

Bold backsplashes add excitement and variety to otherwise neutral kitchens. If you choose a bright, eye-catching option, make it the center of your kitchen by adding accents that complement it without distracting from it.

Mix-and-Match Metals

Traditionally, the metals of your sink and knobs all match. However, it might be time to mix that up. Try choosing a different metal for your kitchen sink that doesn’t match the metal you’re using for the knobs. You might just like the result.

Lighting

Hanging light fixtures are another growing kitchen trend of 2020. They keep the ceiling involved in the overall design of a kitchen while also providing something interesting to look at.  And they have a practical function to boot.

Open Shelving

Open shelving allows you to use your kitchen supplies and equipment as decoration. This unique way to showcase your dining sets next to your actual decorations creates a warm, welcoming feel as long as it isn’t overdone.
