The start of 2020 means the beginning of a new decade and ten more years of trends. In the last century, we’ve seen many styles of kitchen including shabby chic, the classic monochrome and oil rubbed bronze. As time goes on, style develops and so do popular kitchen trends. With the rise of social media, particularly apps such as Pinterest, people across the world can share the look of their homes helping trends spread faster. We’ve taken a look at some predictions for the trends we expect to see in 2020.
Calacatta marble is a fantastic look which compliments any kitchen. Characterised by strong, defined veins, this look is a favourite which will boom in the next ten years. Textured marble has always been popular and this is a fresh way of styling it. If you want this look without the hassle and cost of having marble installed in your kitchen, try Classic Calacatta by Silestone. This quartz worktop slab is a stunning grey with prominent veins. This shade is suitable for a monochrome kitchen and will also complement a pop of colour.
Pop of colour
Gone are the trends of the ’70s where gaudy, bright colours were matched together. The modern kitchen look is often thought of stylish with muted colours and shining surfaces. However, you can certainly have this whilst also enjoying a pop of colour. Appliances, cabinets and back walls can all be transformed with a bright pop of colour. Even taps are becoming available in various colours and finishes, so you could opt for one of these. This technique creates a real statement in your kitchen and makes it unique. Be mindful of the colour you choose as this will set the mood of the room, for example, orange is very busy and vibrant whereas blue can be more subtle and relaxed.
Black is the new black
Some kitchen owners might shy away from black as it’s such a bold colour which could be deemed as harsh if not used properly. However, if styled correctly, black becomes a statement colour which is utilised in woods, creating rustic beauty. We predict that black is going to increase in popularity as kitchen owners love the chic, modern feel.
Gravity Defying Islands
We absolutely love the sleek and stylish look of gravity-defying islands. These features make your kitchen look open and modern all whilst achieving a useful function. The installation of these features reveals more space which is vital in today’s world. With the rise of such people as Marie Kondo and her space-saving tips, something like this is bound to be popular and we predict they’ll be even more prevalent as the decade continues.
Marble has been so popular throughout the last decade. Marble worktops, splash boards, floor tiles and even ceiling tiles have been remodelled in marble. It’s such an elegant material which essentially works with any other kitchen decor, it’s no wonder it’s so popular. With so many different colours to choose from, marble will remain a staple of kitchen decor that will be just as popular in the next ten years. Granite worktops is another countertop material that can mimic marble so you can get the aesthetic without the hassle. Granite is an extremely hard-wearing material which is scratch and heat resistant, perfect for the kitchen. Granite is also much more cost-effective and requires less maintenance.
