Planning a kitchen remodeling project for your Atlanta home but unsure of what changes to adopt? Get inspiration from the latest kitchen design trends that experts predict will be big in 2020 and beyond.
Here are some ideas you might want to consider.
Technology has taken over the kitchen, and more and more homeowners today are turning to smart home systems to bring household convenience to the next level.
According to Kohler, they expect smart appliances to become a staple in homes within the next few years. In 2020, the company is setting their focus on connected kitchens, where individual appliances may be managed using a single device.
If you don’t have an Amazon Alexa or a similar voice assistant in your kitchen yet, perhaps it’s time to consider getting one. Imagine talking to your Instant Pot and telling it how you want your soup done, or giving instructions to an air fryer on how to cook over a hundred recipes. Smart kitchen products have changed household kitchens practically overnight— and more innovations are coming to the market soon.
Super pantry storage
Super pantries may have been around for a couple of years now, but it’s getting even more popular by the day. Described as a combination pantry, catering kitchen, butler’s pantry, and linen closet in one, a super pantry is every homeowner’s dream, providing a huge amount of storage to keep the kitchen uncluttered.
It works for kitchens of all sizes, and can be customized to match your overall aesthetic. You can add lighting for effect and function, combine shelves and drawers, and even add a small desk where you can park your laptop or tablet while you whip up dinner.
The classic look of farmhouse sinks has made them one of the most popular fixtures in kitchens today—and the love affair is not about to end soon. A farmhouse sink goes well with almost every kitchen aesthetic, from rustic to contemporary. While it’s traditionally made of porcelain, it now also comes in more modern materials like stainless steel and concrete.
With greater emphasis on kitchens as the main hub in homes today, spacious kitchens have become the standard, and kitchen islands are at heart of it all. The role of kitchen islands has grown over the years. They have become multifunctional centers of activity where you can do the prepping, cooking, eating, cleaning, and more. They also make excellent storage spaces, and can double as a breakfast nook or bar.
For 2020, trends point to the popularity of wood kitchen islands, with walnut as the top choice for material. In homes where space is not a problem, bigger islands are preferred, and even double islands are becoming commonplace. Homeowners seem to be finding more functions for them, such as using one end as a chopping station or as a place to hold a beverage fridge.
The growing popularity of high tech kitchens has rubbed off on other design elements. Handleless cabinets are a good example, especially in contemporary kitchens where sleek and clean lines are the defining elements. Push-open and shut technology makes it possible and convenient. Recessed handles in the same or contrasting colors can also do the trick.
In planning your kitchen renovation, you’ll come across numerous options that you have to weigh carefully against your needs and preferences. It can be a lot of hard work, but transforming the heart of your home into a truly special place is well worth the time and effort.
