7 Kitchen Design Trends for 2020
Our Chicago design-build team is excited about the trends and great new looks that are emerging in kitchen design. If you are planning on renovating your dated kitchen, here are 7 kitchen design trends for 2020 that you’ll surely want to consider:
1. Navy Blue Cabinetry
The go-to kitchen cabinet color for 2020 is navy blue. Paired with wood flooring and a light palette, the cabinets can be the focal point of your new year’s kitchen design. Our Chicago design-build team used matte navy-blue for these cabinets in this kitchen renovation and even added a wine cooler to the island. It’s a chic, modern color and gives this kitchen the perfect dash of elegance while keeping the look warm.
2. Backsplash Slabs
Ditch the standard subway tile or patterned tiles for your kitchen backsplash and choose a single slab of luxurious natural stone. Single slabs of marble, onyx, and other ornate materials are showing up more and more on backsplashes. They can make a strong statement without being bold or overpowering.
3. Steel Hoods
Whether you go for the standard look or a customized colored version, steel hoods are in vogue for kitchen design in 2020. Make a statement with a matte black hood or have one custom-made to become the focal point of your kitchen.
4. Statement Sinks
Kitchen sinks are no longer just a functional addition to accommodate washing and rinsing veggies. Modern, custom-design sinks are making their way into trendy kitchens, and these versions come with trays and cutting blocks so you can wash, dry, cut, and peel all your ingredients in one place. Kitchen sinks have never been more beautiful, functional, and fun!
5. Dark Marble
Dare to go dark. As a contrast to the trending white look, this green marble is all about playing with darker shades. Choose from green, red, and even black marble for your kitchen countertops, floors, and backsplashes.
6. Sustainable Materials
Eco-friendly, green materials remain the top choice for flooring and cabinetry, while energy-efficient appliances are the go-to for kitchen fixtures. Our design-build team shared about eco-friendly kitchens in this green Chicago kitchens blog.
7. Smart Technology
From smart refrigerators, ovens, and cooking ranges, to automated systems that will read out recipes to you and let you know when your food is ready. Smart technology is a big trend for kitchens and will remain so throughout 2020. Here are our top suggestions for a smart Chicago kitchen.
