Top 5 Kitchen trends for 2020
If you’re looking to start the new decade with a new kitchen redesign, or you want to update the kitchen you’ve already got with a few changes, take a look at our favourite trends emerging in the new year!
- Double islands
As larger kitchens become more fashionable, along with open plan spaces, installing a double island might be exactly what your kitchen needs to add a unique feature. Creating a double island with different worktops adds extra layers to your kitchen – consider pairing a wooden worktop with a Quartz worktop to create depth.
- Pantone colour of the year
Interior design for the majority of the 2010s has been about minimalistic and neutral designs, so it seems fitting to subvert this trend in the new decade. Pantone named its ‘Colour of the Year’ to be Classic Blue, so it’s likely you’ll see an influx of classic blue being used in kitchens. We recommend pairing blue cupboards and a white kitchen worktop, such as Silestone’s Blanco Zeus, which is ideal for adding brightness to the room.
- Brassware taps and sinks
Forget about ceramic sinks in the new decade, now that taps and sinks are available in a wide range of colours and materials, brass features are now trendy to install around the kitchen to emphasise neutral colours, making whites and greys pop. The 1810 Company offers high-quality, on-trend taps and kitchen sinks suitable for those looking for unique and matching taps in their kitchen and bathroom. Franke also offers easy to use kitchen solutions with their range of state-of-the-art sink and tap designs, all providing a timeless aesthetic.
- Two-toned kitchens
Combining two colours throughout the kitchen is set to become massively on-trend in the 2020s, as we move away from matching kitchen cabinets and towards visual texture. Various coloured worktops can add character to the space and give the illusion you’ve got a larger kitchen. For example, try using a rustic worktop along the walls but use a white worktop for the island. You can also try playing with matt finishes paired with sleek and shiny worktops, which creates instant interest to a guest viewing your kitchen.
- Marble kitchen worktops
Marble offers a peaceful quality to a kitchen, and Carrara’s minimalistic design will always be in style – if you’re looking for something to last throughout the decades. Choosing a neutral kitchen worktop makes it easier for you to switch up the style of your kitchen throughout the years to come, as you can change the kitchen cupboards and flooring to adapt to newer trends in the future. If you’re updating your kitchen on a budget, we recommend opting for marble-effect quartz worktops, as they offer greater durability without compromising on style.
