Kitchen Design Inspirations for 2020

1. Open Shelving

Open shelving is one of the most popular kitchen trends we see in the building industry right now. There are many pros to having open shelving in your kitchen. It can make the room feel lighter and more open, as well as make it have more of a natural flow. While they may not be for everyone, those who want to display their dishes, and give a modern feel to their kitchen will find that open shelving is the perfect way to make their kitchen extra trendy.

2. Natural Wood Tones

Everyone can agree, a white kitchen is clean and classic. But what about those stunning natural wood tones? Right now natural wood tones are popping up all over the place as we see people looking to achieve a lighter, more airy look in their home. Modern advancements have allowed us to be able to use finishes on these stunning woods that won’t turn yellow over time the way lacquers that would have traditionally been used in the past. When looking for a fresh, light, welcoming feel, you may find that having those natural wood tones achieve that for you!

3. Abundance of Texture

For those of us who are drawn to a simple color palette, we may find that adding different textures throughout the kitchen is the best way to make it feel unique and stand out. Whether it be beadboard or shiplap on the ceiling, or a slate backsplash, adding texture is a sure way to make your guests ooh and aah at your new kitchen.

4. Pops of Color

Let’s be real. The majority of us want a little pop of color in our lives, so why not add it to your kitchen? This can be picking a fun, vibrant color for your island, choosing furniture with an eye catching pattern, or even using open shelving to display your colorful dish collection. You could also choose to go with a colorful tile for your backsplash to bring a bit of sunshine into your kitchen.

5. Epic Pantries

This is a good one. We all love a good pantry, right? Pantries don’t have to be dark closets that we’d prefer our guests not to see, but instead a space we are proud to show off to those visiting our homes. This can be in the form of a large walk-in, free standing, or a hallway closet you decide to convert. Not only is a pantry the perfect place to store all your grocery goods, it is also where you could put in a coffee bar, wine rack, or waffle making station! The opportunities are endless.
