Is your kitchen a bit outdated? If you are considering a kitchen renovation to start the new year and the new decade out fresh, be sure to check out these kitchen design trends for 2020. From the return of wood cabinets to showy, bright colors, there is something for everyone.

Dark Kitchens and Countertops

While many homeowners opt for light colors like white for their universal appeal, a recent trend toward darker colors adds a bit of excitement and creates a warm, cozy space. From dark counters to black accent walls and cabinets, the look can be striking, if not a bit overpowering.

A Bit of Color

At the opposite end of the kitchen color spectrum is a classic white kitchen with the occasional splash of bright color. This could be a light blue stove and refrigerator or brightly colored red or yellow cabinetry. Many designs echo the pastel colors from the 50s and 60s, adding a bit of nostalgia, and retro-style appliances can finish the look.

Adding Warm Colors With Wood

Wood cabinets are making a return, with light-colored species like ash, beech, or pine adding a bit of warmth without the dark accents common to walnut or mahogany. Combined with stone counters or flooring, the wood cabinetry can bring out and compliment the natural coloration of the stone.

Double Islands

Workspace is always at a premium in a kitchen, and by adding an extra island, you can create two workstations with differing functions. For instance, with one dedicated to prep, complete with a sink or stove, and the other supporting a set of bar-height stools, you could work and entertain guests simultaneously.

Custom Hoods

Many homeowners are ditching the plain, utilitarian stove hood for something with a bit more style. From custom steel hoods to painted or custom-shaped hoods with plenty of unique accents, the modern stove hood is more than just a way to eliminate cooking fumes; it can now be a piece of art.

Open Shelving

Upper cabinets are becoming less and less prevalent in the modern kitchen design, with many homeowners opting for open shelving instead. A set of simple, attractive shelves can make the ideal place to display fine china, your favorite glassware, seasonal cooking supplies, fresh fruits and vegetables, or your treasured knick-knacks and heirlooms.
