Top 8 Kitchen Design Trends for 2020

It’s the start of a new decade, and it’s a great time to think about new beginnings in different facets of your life. Why not start with your kitchen? It’s where so many of us start the day with a cup of coffee or our morning cereal, setting the tone for the rest of our day. Set the tone for the decade to come with a welcoming kitchen that is just as functional as it is comfortable. Check out these top 10 design trends for this year, and you’ll be making resolutions to give your kitchen a new look to ring in the new decade!

Clad and Hidden Appliances

You can create even more of a sleek atmosphere by matching the fronts of your appliances to your cabinets: a dishwasher and refrigerator clad in classic light wood, for example, make for clean lines and cheerful visual appeal. Check out our panels to see how one simple change can transform the look of your kitchen.

Showcasing the Sink

Sinks generally don’t get as much as attention as other features of the kitchen. But a farmhouse sink can add a homey, timeless feel that quickly becomes the star of the show. Best of all, the deeper basin makes washing larger pots and pans a breeze. You can make a real statement with a corner farm sink looking out a window: washing dishes has never been so idyllic!

Built-In Pantries

Standing pantries are great solutions for those who don’t have an extra room for a pantry – or who do have one but could always stand a little more storage. They allow for an easy glimpse of what provisions are on hand and, by keeping them all together, ensure that the rest of the kitchen stays tidy and organized.

Dark Floors

If you have light-colored cabinets, hardwood floors with a rich, dark stain provide a striking visual contrast. Crisp white or gray cabinetry, combined with bright lighting, offset the expansive feel of darker kitchen floors.

Marble Countertops

Clean, classy, and luxurious: what’s not to like about marble countertops? More and more people are investing in these gorgeous countertops, and it’s easy to see why. They’re the last word in elegance, with marble being the go-to material for countertops this decade.

Double Ovens

The main advantage of having a cooktop and wall oven rather than a range is that it’s easier to separate tasks. If you’re cooking something on a range, it can be a challenge to get something out of the oven at the same time. Another advantage to a wall oven is that they’re higher than when they’re under the range. Make the most out of your new addition by installing them in the double oven cabinets that we feature in both white and gray.

Cabinetry as Furniture

According to Forbes Magazine’s forecast for design trends in 2020, cabinets are the main visual elements of kitchen design as appliances become increasingly hidden. This means that cabinets are more in tune with the needs of users. At Nelson Cabinetry, we offer pull out shelves for smarter storage as well as blind corner cabinet systems and lazy susan corner cabinets so you can integrate form with function, making the most out of your kitchen’s most important feature: the cabinets.

It’s All in the Details

While getting the big picture is important, the smaller details like hardware, kitchen cabinet fillers, and molding make all the difference between a kitchen that’s just satisfactory and a kitchen that’s a real masterpiece. At Nelson Cabinetry, we’ve got you covered with door handles, cabinet crown molding, and even a touch-up kit for easy improvements down the line.
