Kitchen trends we love

Clean lines, natural materials, and monochromatic colour schemes with bold accents are some of the top looks for kitchen designers in 2020. With thoughtful attention to functionality, clever technology is quickly making its way into contemporary kitchens, while striking design continues to take centre stage.

Read on for our favourite kitchen trends of 2020.

 

Mixed materials

Using mixed materials continues to be a strong trend in kitchen design. It allows you to create a unique result that reflects your own personal style. Contrasting textures, such as wood, brick and marble create a layered effect that’s liveable and luxe.

Glass-door cabinets

Open and glass-door cabinets with a lighted back are becoming a popular feature in many contemporary kitchens. As well as looking ultra sleek and stylish, they make a great place to display decorative items, glassware and favourite collections. They can also create the illusion of more space, thanks to their light and airy feel.

Irregular shapes and soft curves

“Irregular shapes are now being used for the barstool area… This creates a more fluid design and a friendlier space for socialising,” says Joanna Hoeft, Designer Manager at Studio Italia. The Shape Kitchen by Poliform for Studio Italia has integrated handles for a seamless and sleek look.

In 2020, we’re seeing an advancement when it comes to simple kitchen design. Every detail is carefully considered, with softly gliding drawers, LED lighting and magnetic knife racks.
