A Look Ahead—Kitchen Trends for 2020

As a decade comes to a close, it’s a good time to discuss design trends that will define this year and the 2020s. Insider gives a comprehensive overview of the top trends of the 2010s, noting the shift from warm neutrals to cooler tones, and the emergence of the all-white kitchen. Last year saw terrazzo make a stately come back, black and bold colors eclipsing the ever-popular white cabinet, and open shelving showed us that it is here to stay. We have canvassed design blogs and resources to compile a list of design trends that will kick-start this decade! 

Integrated Storage Solutions 

2020 will see double duty spaces where storage can be both functional and discrete, according to KBB Online. Designated storage solutions and integrated functionality improve the layout, flow, and usable space.

Open shelving & Deep drawers

Open shelving is a trend that we have seen gain popularity over the late 2010s, and it is here to stay with the start of this new decade. The widespread use of open shelving will continue to extend beyond the kitchen. Deep drawers have begun to emerge as a growing trend in lieu of traditional hinged door lower cabinets.

Double islands 

Kitchen islands have become design staples. Why have just one of what you love, when you can have two? When space is not a concern, double islands have become popular choices to create a visually appealing way to utilize floor space, increase storage, and define areas in open-floor plan configurations.

Pantry cabinets

Tall pantry cabinets, sometimes called larder cabinets, have begun to rise in popularity. Having a convenient, one-stop location to store dry food items is emerging as the new kitchen must-have.
