The kitchen is back in the limelight and plays a vital role in our homes. Over the years, it has become a friendly area where cooking is no longer a chore but a pleasure. It is associated with a feeling of togetherness, conducive to gatherings where we share precious moments with those we love. The kitchen is therefore a very busy room that often influences the decor of the rest of the house. As an extension of yourself, the kitchen must reflect your lifestyle and your personality. So, what are the simmering 2020 trends?
In 2020, the focus will be on warm, natural and organic colours in decor magazines. Nature is omnipresent in our kitchens with new shades of brown, beige and gray. The neutral colours contrast with some kitchen materials to create a warm setting. Glossy shades have ruled for a few seasons, but they now make way for more matte and natural tones. This trend applies to both paint and materials, for harmony between kitchen elements.
Whether on the floor, the cabinets or the island, wood is entirely at home in our kitchens. The detailing makes it more modern, showcasing its textures. It is versatile and durable, with lots of shades contrasting with other materials in the kitchen. On the surfaces, the nobility of marble and quartz contrasts sharply with the roughness of concrete and granite. Indeed, opposites attract and create an appealing effect. Far from running out of steam, natural and raw materials are meant to coexist to bring character to modern kitchens. Gold and copper metals blend well with the 2020 star materials.
We are increasingly looking for innovative storage solutions for the kitchen, without having to sacrifice style. The year 2020 has adapted to this reality by offering cabinets that cover the walls from floor to ceiling. The aim is to maximize storage space by using height rather than installing a number of cabinets, which often creates a messy look. Despite the natural and authentic trend, the minimalist wave is still very present. Stacked shelves create a very eye-catching visual when space and storage space allow it. In 2020, subtlety will reign and favour cabinet fronts without handles.
