It’s a new year, which means new trends in home decor. If you’re in the market for redesigning your kitchen space, or if you’re just browsing for potential ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Knotty Alder provides a great selection of new, top-quality kitchen cabinets perfect for your next upgrade or remodel.
When considering kitchen design trends, it’s not uncommon to worry about investing too much time and money in kitchen trends that won’t last long. To be trendy means to be up-to-date in current style and influence, so that would imply that your kitchen design won’t last long and you’ll be redesigning it again in no time. In reality, kitchen trends and designs often stay popular long after they’ve given up their time in the limelight.
See for yourself by taking a look at some of the top, designer-approved kitchen trends of 2020 below.
It’s common to put pops of bright colors throughout a kitchen, but have you ever thought about making an entire wall one big pop of bright color? Select a delicate green or yellow or green-and-yellow-hued tile and design it to cover your entire left-side wall. 2020 is the year to take bolder risks with color in your kitchens.
Kitchen renovators can enjoy a whole new level of creative thinking to creative application with the concept of using different shapes throughout a kitchen. Kitchens tend to be all hard, firm lines, but going along with the taking risks in the color department, 2020 could be bringing more risk to the table. Meaning, the table itself could look subtly different in how it’s shaped. We mean curved lines on the cabinets and soft edges on the tables.
The traditional, all-white, clean kitchen will never truly go out of style. But kitchen renovators can apply an interesting twist to this old classic by combining elements of new kitchen designs. Imagine the clean white cabinets and countertops of a traditional kitchen combined with marble slab countertops and backsplashes.
Marble countertops have been popular for years, but there’s a different type of marble that is predicted to shine all the brighter in 2020: Calacatta marble. This type of marble has very pronounced, even heavy veins that you haven’t seen in more traditional marble. It makes a great addition to boldly-designed kitchens in darker colors looking to add some visual interest to the area.
Backsplashes were originally intended to go rather unnoticed. But today, in 2020, the goal is to draw attention to them. They had already started being used as focal points in the kitchens of 2019 and are expected to become even more central to a kitchen design this year. Go for big bright colors or an exaggeratedly large backsplash and it can qualify as a piece of art as well as a backsplash.
Old-school cabinetry has a place in the new kitchen trends of 2020. Warm tones and finishes are approved and rising in popularity. They bring an old-time feel to kitchens while also providing a sense of warmth and comfort that you can have a harder time finding with more sleek, modern feels.
Consider blending your countertops and backsplashes into one cohesive whole. If you’re worried you don’t have enough to put in your kitchen and fill up space well, this idea is a great solution because it provides the illusion that there’s more going on than there really is. Plus the material of the counter can make a great backdrop for any accessories you do want in your kitchen.
