Makeover Ideas for Luxurious, Functional Cook Spaces
Visualizing your dream kitchen is easier when you are aware of popular styles and can select what resonates with your own style. Here is a list of the top kitchen renovation trends in 2020 to get you started. From trending designs, clever storage solutions, and high-end materials, to the latest in paints, fixtures and accessories, you can get inspiration for every aspect of kitchen remodeling. While almost every interior design magazine and home improvement site publishes their own lists, the kitchen renovation experts at Flegel’s have summarized this year’s trends for you.
Kitchen Designs Trending in 2020
- Open floor plans are in: Today’s kitchens do not hide behind doors and walls. Instead, they are becoming more front and center, to serve as extensions of the main living areas. In fact, in most homes, cook spaces are turning into multi-tasking zones where you can cook, enjoy your meals, entertain, catch up with the family, oversee the kids’ homework, and more.
- Color is key: Since many homeowners are taking down walls and creating open layouts, the cook space becomes a visually prominent part of the main living area. Hence, a clever use of color is key. Current trends show:
- Soft colors are replacing stark white kitchens. Use of light blues, light grays, green, and cream for cabinet colors is in.
- Colored ranges and hoods, especially in pale blue or cobalt are also getting a nod from top interior designers across the globe.
- Range hoods can be conversation starters: Decorative hoods in unique shapes and sizes are making a bold statement. They not only reflect the personality of the homeowners, but also serve as a piece of art or a conversation starter.
- Porcelain countertops are the future: Porcelain slabs give the appearance of marble but do not stain, making them a popular option for kitchen countertops. Since quartz is becoming increasingly expensive, porcelain presents a good-looking, affordable, easy-to-clean, and durable alternative. It also makes for an excellent monolithic slab backsplash if you want to avoid tile.
- Designer sinks and large islands are smart options: Whether it is a compact kitchen or an expansive space, maximizing the work area is highly desirable. Designer sinks serve as multipurpose stations since they come with cutting boards, colanders, drying racks, and other useful accessories. Pairing them with unlacquered brass or matte black faucets will complete their high-end look. Another trendy option that maximizes your workspace is a large kitchen island that is useful for prepping, entertaining, dining, and other purposes.
