Kitchen Cabinet Trends for 2020

Your kitchen cabinets take up the majority of the real estate in your kitchen so they have the power to control the overall look and feel of your space. What may have been on trend years ago when you redid your kitchen may be making your room’s style feel worn, outdated, and out of sync with the rest of your home. If you’re thinking about a kitchen remodel in the new year, it’s important you choose your cabinetry carefully! You want to make sure your choice is an accurate representation of your style that you will love for years to come. For those in need of some design inspiration, look no further! Our experts have put together the top 5 cabinet trends to consider for your kitchen in 2020.

 

5 Kitchen Cabinet Trends To Consider in 2020:

1.Sustainable Materials

Homeowners have been searching for ways to make their homes more sustainable for years now, and this trend can now be seen in kitchen design. Our experts have seen a surge in customers looking for cabinetry that is made with sustainable materials, responsible manufacturing processes, and low emission finishes. When searching for a cabinetry brand that uses sustainable materials, we recommend choosing a brand that is certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA), like UltraCraft, Decorá, WOLF Classic Cabinets, and Diamond Cabinets. The KCMA recognizes companies that are committed to sustainability. This can be through their use of environmentally friendly materials or through their low impact on the environment. 

2.Open Shelving and Glass Cabinets

Get ready to “Marie Kondo” your kitchen cabinets because both open shelving and glass cabinetry will be a big trend for 2020. These trends are part of a larger push for simplicity and minimalist style kitchens. Open shelving is also a great opportunity to add your personal style with thoughtfully displayed decor. Whether you prefer the glass cabinets or open shelving, many homeowners pair these cabinetry options with larger, deeper drawers. This will give you additional space to store any plates, bowls, pans, and appliances that you may not want to be on display.

 

3.Colorful Kitchens

While monochromatic kitchens have had their time to shine for the past couple of years, color is returning to the kitchen and is more stylish than ever before! The fun part about adding color is that you can add a one-of-a-kind twist to this kitchen trend by choosing any color you want. Shades like turquoise, avocado, or lemon will stand out against the darker backsplashes, while shades like cobalt blue and tangerine can really pop in a lighter kitchen. You can also choose muted versions of these colors for a more subtle impact. When choosing to add a pop of color to your design, be sure to keep the future in mind. We recommend choosing a color that you will love for at least 5 years. This will help reduce the cost of any future renovations. 

 

4.Two Tone Cabinets

Who says you have to stick to one color for your cabinetry? Unified kitchen cabinetry can be left in 2019. Two tone cabinets are an easy yet effective way to add visual interest into your home. Like adding a pop of color, the combinations for two tone cabinets are virtually limitless, but it’s important to keep in mind that the overall goal of your cabinetry update is to create a cohesive and inviting space. When moving forward with this type of cabinetry, many homeowners choose to use the darker cabinets on the bottom, while installing brighter cabinets above the counter. This creates the illusion that your kitchen is larger than it actually is. 

 

5.Walnut Wood Cabinetry

Aligned with the sustainable materials trend, it’s becoming more and more common to see wood introduced into the kitchen, specifically in the cabinetry. Wood cabinets provide neutral color and great texture to your kitchen. This helps you achieve a balanced space. Walnut cabinets have become more and more popular in 2019 and will continue to be on trend in the new year. This is largely due to the warm, rich, and inviting aspects of this material.
