Kitchen Trends in 2020

Posted on: March 4, 2020

The kitchen is the place where everyone gathers for delicious food, drink, and memories. From holidays to summer gatherings, you want your kitchen to look the part for every occasion. For every kitchen design project from renovation to decoration, the team at Bud Matthews has the latest and greatest kitchen trends for your home.

In 2020, there are a couple different ways to spice up your kitchen. Learn more about 5 different kitchen trends that the team at Bud Matthews can help bring to life with a kitchen remodeling service on our blog!

Open Floor Plan

We love to see an open floor plan with kitchens in 2020. Being able to have the food and your guests in close proximity will make you the hostess of the year. There are many different ways to have an open floor plan in your kitchen, from having a kitchen with one wall open to putting in another island, there are many different ways to open up your kitchen to create a spacious and functional look.

Custom Pull-Out Organization & Storage Solutions

With an open floor plan, it is helpful to consider where to put your things that would normally be out in the kitchen or shoved into the panty. Using a pull-out system, you can be confident that your kitchen will look neat and orgnaized since everything will be stored in cabinets. This is also a great solution for those tricky-to-organize items like Tupperware! A pull-out system might just be the thing you brag most about when upgrading and renovating your kitchen.

Upgraded Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets that have glass inserts can make your kitchen look more open and lighter while allowing your hardware, heirlooms, and antiques to be showcased in your cabinets. Another stylistic feature to consider when upgrading your cabinets is to have two-tone cabinets. For a beautiful example of renovating a kitchen with two tones and utilizing chicken wire for cabinetry, take a look at Diane Keaton’s house.

A Range of Colors in a Range of Places

From colorful wallpaper or one wall being a pop of color to utilizing special appliances such as Lacanche, Big Chill, and Smeg, your rustic kitchen can be transformed with a pop of color. It is important to call in a professional when replacing your regular oven with a colorful one to prevent damage happening to a gas line. You can start small with decorative towels or a small appliance such as a colorful toaster, or you can insert a whole new appliance for a pop of color.

Overhead Lighting – Mix & Match

There are many different options for overhead lighting, and if you can’t decide between two different styles, why not do both? Mixing styles and types of lighting has never been bigger in kitchens. You can add your own personal flair to a specific aesthetic or explore multiple different styles with your lighting options. When picking, try to find a shape or finish that you love and keep that one element consistent as you mix and match.

With the different types of lighting, such as ambient, layer, and task, you can meet not only your functional needs but also your task needs.
