General Design Trends In 2020
This year’s kitchen design trends are made for the modern homeowner, boasting warm colors, stunning contemporary kitchen cabinets, and cutting edge kitchen features and appliances. In your own or your client’s upcoming kitchen remodel, try out some of these trends for 2020 that kitchen designers and admirers will be sure to love.
Open Space Kitchen Concept
Choosing open space kitchens, by integrating the kitchen and living room space, is becoming more and more popular. Modern kitchens are designed to facilitate an informal, interactive lifestyle where people can get together to entertain, socialize or work. An open kitchen concept can also make a small space or residential kitchen feel much larger. Tearing down walls is an easy way to trick the eye into thinking that you have got more square footage than you really do, which is something most people in NYC are looking for, and is hence a major continued trend in 2020.
Classic Black And White Kitchens
This time-tested color scheme is back for the luxury buyer in 2020. Consider using this understated design pattern of black and white kitchen cabinets to make other details stand out, such as elegant kitchen appliances, your modern kitchen layout or a bold art piece. Consider swapping in a shade of gray for a less traditional look in your custom kitchen. If you are a fan of dark wood cabinets, be aware that modern kitchen design is moving away from the industrial style of the past five years and toward a more homey look. Add some extra coziness to your kitchen by selecting a specifically warm type of wood for your kitchen cabinets. Opt for a lighter kitchen countertop to balance out the overall color scheme.
Dark And Bold Kitchen Designs
If strong contrasts in your kitchen is not quite your style, and you are also not necessarily looking for a timeless, all-white kitchen, so often adorned by modernists and minimalists alike, there is another highly trending design option that may be relevant for you. Using dark and/or bold colors and designs in your kitchen is an ongoing big trend in 2020 that can be implemented in a variety of different ways. Splashes of color find their way into modern kitchen design in 2020 via accent walls, tiles or accessories such as vases and kitchenware. Another option is to add a darker finish to your kitchen cabinetry, such as dark wood veneer or to choose a bold countertop such as black granite. White will probably still stick around in parts of your kitchen though since after all, white or other light colors are essential to drive your home’s brightness and will, same as in past years, also remain popular in the future.
Mixed Kitchen Materials
Today’s kitchen designers are often creating a so-called “mixed” look for their clients by combining difference materials and kitchen cabinet colors, hence breaking on purpose rules from the past decade. Pairing various kitchen materials and finishes together is a great way to add personality to your modern kitchen. This is especially effective for your kitchen countertops. A marble countertop with a wooden kitchen island, for example, can look beautiful when executed well, and can create a touch of elegance in your kitchen space. Ask a kitchen designer about the kitchen materials that are trending in 2020, and which ones they recommend using for your particular space and needs.
High-Tech Kitchen Features
Today’s kitchens in 2020 are subtly fitted to accommodate modern technology. Install hidden charging portals and smart kitchen appliances to add high-tech kitchen features without overwhelming your kitchen and interior space. Also, consider purchasing eco-friendly or solar-powered kitchen appliances and use modern innovations to lower your environmental footprint. If your kitchen space has large windows, be inspired by airy, European kitchen design elements, through which you can optimize the natural light in your 2020 luxury kitchen design. Large windows will open up your space and allow light to pour over your gorgeous kitchen features. If your kitchen is located in a more central location, consider skylights and wall cutouts to create this same effect.
Innovative Kitchen Appliance Options
Nowadays kitchens are thought of as more than just a place to cook a casual meal, and homeowners turn to professional-grade kitchen appliances for their new multi-purpose room. Why go to a bar if you can choose from a great selection of wine in your personal custom wine cooler? There is also no need to go to crowded coffee places early in the morning if you can have a built-in coffee machine in your beautiful custom kitchen. And it is up to you whether you would like to cover up your kitchen appliances behind cabinet doors, or prefer to leave them openly exposed as part of the design, which is a big trend in 2020, especially if you choose innovative, high-end kitchen appliances for your kitchen design.
Personalization In Your Kitchen
Regardless of currently ongoing kitchen design trends in 2020, your kitchen remodel project should reflect your own personal taste and style. Thanks to all the design options, your kitchen can reflect your personal style both aesthetically and functionally, and plan your kitchen redesign based on your individual design desires and needs. Especially if you are planning to live in your home for more than five years, it is important to consider your own needs rather than the needs of the future buyer. Find out more about your individual kitchen design preferences by browsing through our modern residential kitchen portfolio.

No matter what your budget is, the design choices for 2020 are endless.
