We have been busy this winter meeting with clients, and designing for their upcoming remodeling projects. During those meetings we are definitely seeing some design trends, specifically for their kitchens and bathrooms. Here are some of our favorite ones:
There’s new technology available everywhere we turn, and that includes many new features for kitchen appliances. Installing fridges with filters that keep produce fresh, have speed chill options, touchscreen technology, and energy efficiency advances— as well as hidden dishwashers that boast AquaSense Recycling, MicroClean features and customization options are all upgrades now available.
It’s all in the beautiful details when it comes to eye-catching kitchens, and those details shine as accent walls as we head into this year. Counter-to-ceiling tile backsplashes or patterned wallpaper shows off homeowner personality and will take center stage in upcoming kitchen makeovers.
While we wouldn’t say that marble or granite countertops are going out of style, in 2020 we are seeing an uptick in quartz counters in both kitchens and bathrooms. Both their slighter lower cost and color variations are selling points for quartz as it grows in popularity in the coming year.
Oversized hardware, especially on drawer pulls, is an easy and stylish way to modernize the kitchen. Hardware color trends include matte black and brushed nickel, as well as mixed hardware on top and bottom sets of cupboards. Other popular colors for the coming year are gold and copper, giving a kitchen an eye-catching pop of color without tackling a major renovation project.
As our clients, and Americans in general, cut back on clutter, the result is more organized dishware, ready to stand the test of display. Top-glass cabinets, or even just a single set in the kitchen, are boldly bringing back the glass cabinet trend.
Kitchen color is nothing to shy away from in 2020. From homeowners that opt-in for colored cabinets, to those who go for a more conservative pop of color through artwork and glassware displays, the options are endless. What color do you like?
