Admit it. Your kitchen is your favorite room in your house. It makes sense. It’s the room where birthday cake is eaten. It’s where you stay up late with visiting family playing cards at the table. It’s where you sit to drink your morning cup and catch up with the rest of the world. But, as you look around you think to yourself, “do I need to update this outdated kitchen”? If you’re asking yourself, the answer is probably yes. So here are the 2020 kitchen design trends to get your kitchen up-to-date.
At Johnson Lumber, we understand how important your kitchen is to you. That’s why we are working to give everyone in Millersville, Edgewater, and the surrounding areas the kitchen they want and deserve. From what we’ve been seeing (and doing), here are some of the trends in your area. Your neighbors are making their kitchens more efficient, more modern, and oh so pretty.
Minimalism is becoming trendy. This doesn’t refer to just getting rid of things, but also to having your space be as streamlined as possible.
One way people are achieving this in their kitchens is by taking the doors off of their upper cabinets.
This works two-fold; not only does it reduce the footprint of your fixtures, but it is also an incentive to keep your cabinets tidy and clutter-free.
Kick it up a notch and go for floating shelves to really drive home that minimalist feel.
Gone are the days of displaying your Tupperware sets or your hand-painted salad bowls on top of your cabinets.
To really maximize that storage space, people are opting to take their upper cabinets all the way to the ceiling.
Doing this will give your kitchen a more finished look and provide you with extra usable storage the whole way around your kitchen.
Matching cabinetry is out, two-tone cabinetry is in.
Mixing natural wood finishes, paint colors, or glass window panes can take your kitchen to the next level.
Some prefer to keep all the cabinets uniform, but more and more people are opting for the more visually stunning effect of combining finishes or materials.
The most popular application of this is using a bright or bold statement color on the lower cabinets, while keeping the uppers an understated white or gray tone. But of course, you can use any combination you want with confidence.
For those with some wiggle room and a penchant for entertaining, installing a stovetop directly into their island has been a game changer.
Not only does this increase the amount of surrounding counter space you’d have for preparing the meal, but when the island doubles as an eat-in bar, you’ve got yourself table-side service for every meal.
Pro tip: install a small sink in your island as well and you’ve got yourself an all-in-one prepping, cooking, and eating station – efficiency at its finest.
