2020 is all about functional space in the kitchen, which means a double island for extra storage and counter space. Many homeowners are adding a double island because it allows for dual functionality. One island is designed for food preparation with large counter space, a deep basin sink, and cabinet drawers. The second island is designated as the casual eating area with bar stools, a spacious area to set out appetizers, and a wine rack.

More Color

White and gray have been the popular palettes for a while, but color is finally being introduced back into the kitchen. There are many ways to add pops of color to your kitchen, including adding a custom colored range or a colorful tiled backsplash.  

Open Shelving

Open shelving has been a trend for a while, and it looks like it’s here to stay. Today’s open shelving allows homeowners to add their own style and personality as they display kitchenware and décor. Some helpful tips include placing items of varying heights on the same shelf, grouping items in twos or threes, and artistically displaying multiples of the same items. For example, group a row of wine glasses together or stack two or three bowls together.

Sustainable Materials

As the world grows more eco-friendly, people are looking for ways to add sustainability to their kitchen remodel. Use only recycled or natural materials, such as wood or stone or quartz when designing your cabinets and countertops. Many cabinetry makers are taking the manufacturing process into consideration and making materials with a lower emission finish in mind.

Dark Blue Cabinets

Classic, dark blue cabinetry has risen in popularity. In fact, Sherwin-Williams named Naval, a rich dark blue, their 2020 color of the year.  Dark blue cabinets are ideal as an accent color on your kitchen island, or you can use them throughout your entire kitchen. This deep shade pairs beautifully with gold or brass accents for a bold, Art Deco style kitchen. It combines a classic shade with natural, sustainable materials.

Other top kitchen design trends include using warm wood grains, full wall backsplashes, and redoing the pantry.
