In 2020 not only do we find ourselves in a new year, but a brand-new decade as well.
When it comes to kitchen renovations, there is always a quite delicate balance between going with a distinctive style, while also ensuring the kitchen does not date too quickly. By following the trends and featuring them in a subtle way, you can ensure your kitchen is modern and stays in style for years to come.
In this post we are discussing some of the biggest kitchen trends set to hit in 2020 and how you can incorporate them into your renovation.
Now more than ever there is a push to be more environmentally conscious and consider our eco footprint. In 2020 we will see renovators going green in more ways than one. When it comes to renovating the kitchen, both incorporating colour and using sustainable materials are on the rise. The push to become more eco-friendly is out of necessity and a personal choice many are choosing to make. Simple swaps like opting for an aluminium bench top made from scrap materials over choosing stone can make a huge difference to how eco-friendly your kitchen renovation is. Additionally, colour in general has become increasingly popular as of late; particularly with greens, teals and blues. Unlike all-timber kitchens or fluorescent yellow cabinetry; a tasteful jade green, subtle teal or navy blue is a great way to incorporate this colour trend while ensuring longevity of the design.
While subway tiled backsplashes became increasingly popular last decade, towards the end of 2019 we noticed the emergence of unique backsplashes. No longer is this component considered a small element of the kitchen, with renovators becoming much more experimental. We have found that clients are increasingly spending more time searching for the exact right backsplash for the space and have been more inclined to make bold choices. Options such as unique, mismatched or hand painted tiles, block colours and striking marbles are all great options when it comes to achieving a bold backsplash. This is also a great opportunity to inject some of your personality into this element of the kitchen, by hand selecting a backsplash that speaks most to you.
If you love modern kitchen elements but also enjoy a subtle nod to the long-established designs, this could be a trend for you to follow in 2020. Neo traditionalism is where traditional meets contemporary. New traditional kitchens are the perfect way to add some glamour into your design while still having it remain a comforting, homely space. This trend features a mix of light and shade elements and incorporates traditional and contemporary patterns. While neo-traditional favours 2-Pac routed cabinetry, the door profile tend to be more understated when compared to a quite traditional Hampton’s style.
Mix and Match Metals
When it comes to picking your kitchen finishes, you no longer have to choose between brass, silver, or gold. That is thanks to the trend of mixing metals which allows you to incorporate an array of different finishes into the style of your kitchen. Not being limited to a specific metal greatly broadens the range of options available to you. You might like to incorporate both brushed gold and rose gold elements into your kitchen to keep within the same warm tones. Otherwise you may opt for a clashing of silver and yellow gold to brighten the space. Whether you gravitate towards copper, chrome, gold, nickel, silver or bronze; you can incorporate an array of these materials into your kitchen design following this 2020 kitchen trend. The best part about mixing and matching metals is that the commitment to the trend can be quite low, as replacing light fixtures and handles are much easier processes than ordering new cabinetry or swapping out appliances.
