It’s hard to believe we’re already more than halfway through 2020. But, the year that has brought us surprises like the Covid-19 pandemic, has also brought some stylish kitchen cabinet trends that are making a bold statement. If you’re considering a kitchen remodel now or in the near future, you’ll want to check these out and see if any of them feel right for you.
Our care for the environment has made its way to the kitchen. Stylish cabinets now include environmentally friendly materials such as recycled wood and PET that provide a modern look with a sustainable feel.
Light and dark colors, plus a mixture of both
The kitchen cabinet trends in 2020 have revealed painted cabinets on both ends of the spectrum. From light greys and pastels to dark colors like black or blue, cabinets are accented by the colors of surrounding fixtures, appliances, countertops, and flooring. Homeowners are even opting for two tones – lighter upper cabinets paired with darker lower ones, for example.
Wood cabinets are in
While colored cabinets are popular, wood hasn’t gone away. Popular choices include walnut, ash, and oak. Earthy tones help to add a warm, rich feeling to your kitchen while contrasting nicely with lighter walls and countertops.
Enjoy extra work space along with the opportunity for custom storage options with a large kitchen island. Most also include seating options for casual dining.
Open shelving and glass doors
This year’s kitchen cabinet trends include ditching some upper cabinets all together and installing open shelving in their place. Or, you can opt for clear or frosty glass cabinet doors to showcase stylish dinnerware pieces. Now, your cabinet’s contents become part of the kitchen’s décor … not something to take lightly if you tend to be unorganized or pack your cabinets full!
Sleek cabinets with hidden hardware
To complement the minimalist and modern look of some of this year’s kitchens, homeowners opt for cabinet doors with hidden handles or cut outs. Or, cabinets open via a touch-release mechanism whose hardware is invisible from the outside.
Coming off the previous style of everything built to shine, this year’s kitchen cabinet trends include matte finishes throughout. Going beyond the cabinet panels themselves, this includes kitchen fixtures and cabinet hardware.
We’ve always loved the luxurious look of marble in the kitchen. Now, it’s more popular than ever as a tile or countertop material. It can complement your cabinets beautifully and add a touch of class to the entire room.
