Most homeowners find that the kitchen is the most used room in their house. From getting kids ready for school, to preparing meals, to the inevitable point in every party where your guests all end up there, the kitchen is a crossroad. You need it to function but you also want it to be a room you and your guests feel good in. Most American homes will update their kitchen every eight years. Here are a few trends in home design to consider for your kitchen upgrade.
Kitchen Color Palette
For 2020, one of the biggest color trends for home interiors will be navy. Sherwin-Williams recently named its paint color Naval, a rich navy, as the paint color of the year. It pairs particularly well with gold metal tones and marble surfaces.
Cabinetry & Countertops
A continuing trend in kitchens is the use of complementary colors on the top and bottom cabinets. If you are considering tapping the 2020 trend toward navy, use it as the bottom cabinet color and pair it with white countertops and backsplash. A great countertop material choice to pair with navy is white marble or marble-inspired products from Corian or Cambria.
After years in nothing but stainless, kitchen appliances in other metal options are making headway. Black tones continue to be popular as well as accents in brass or gold tones.
The biggest trend in faucets for 2020 will be gooseneck designs in gold, black or brass tones. Stainless is still a mainstay, but if you want a trendier look consider the impact these richer colors will bring, especially if you are incorporating navy into your kitchen. An amazingly useful feature from several manufacturers is the hands-free option. When you want to turn the faucet on you just move your hand in front of it, very helpful for frequent hand washing during meal prep.
