The beginning of the year is a good time to clean up and refresh and it affects all aspects of our lives. One of the first things we can start with is our home, as the most personal and dear place for us. And since the kitchen is the space that most often brings people together, we have selected some of the most interesting trends that define the interior of this part of the home for 2020.
If there's anything that has definitely been seen in the interiors lately, it's the return of marble. With its beautiful, naturally styled design and patterns, it brings a sense of luxury to the space in a very elegant way.
Often overlooked as a purely "accent" color, black on walls, cabinets and work surfaces is now one of the current trends in kitchens. The color adds drama and luxury, with the textured wood panels adding a Provencal touch and coziness.
With the expansion of kitchen functions, the kitchen island has become the most important part of this so active space in the home. Dual islands in the kitchen are a convenient way of dividing the area between the food preparation, serving and eating. With the addition of double sinks, cleaning is then much easier.
We come out of the comfort of a relaxed palette in favor of unexpected color combinations in the kitchen. There are many options - from appliances and flooring to windows and cabinets. The color in the kitchen must be up to date for at least five years, so it is important to think beyond current trends and choose a color that will make you feel good in the long run.
Determined to define the next decade, zoning will replace the open plan with a so-called "broken plan." While maintaining the sense of open-plan design space, the trend uses the introduction of screens, freestanding furniture, cabinets and plants to create different areas and nooks for cooking, resting and entertaining.
Modern design in the kitchen means lightness, elegant lines and ergonomics. Kitchen cabinets without handles are one of the strongest trends in 2020. Technological advances in door opening and closing mechanisms have made it possible to clean door handles in both wall and base cabinets. It all comes down to simplicity and a focus on furniture details in this space.
Now that the faucets are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes, the kitchen sinks shine in golden hues. Their place in kitchen design has been especially important lately. The sink should not only be functional, but also very stylish and beautiful.
Cabinets and shelves
Food and spice cabinets, also known as closet shelves, are an important part of kitchen functionality. Large and well-structured cabinets and shelves are an important focus in the 2020 kitchen. With their help, all food products are arranged in one place, without being scattered in numerous built-in cabinets. This facilitates the process of cooking and optimizes shopping.
In an age of uncertainty and a busy digital life, people are increasingly nostalgic for a space where they can slow down the pace and surround themselves with the comfort and security of their special items and personal treasures. In the kitchen of 2020 we draw inspiration from porcelain and silverware stacked in glass-door cabinets and shelves. In it, we display our personal curated selection of artwork, decorative ceramics, cookbooks and other special items for us to add personality and comfort to our home.
