Kitchen Design Trends For 2020

Balanced colour schemes, forward thinking design and intelligent spaces are the future for kitchens.  See our top predictions below for the most popular design trends of 2020!

 Glass Splashbacks

We expect the practicality of glass splashbacks to shine in 2020.

Glass splashbacks are easy to clean with no grout lines, reflect light to create a brighter atmosphere and don’t attract mould as there are no crevices or joins in the glass.

Most appealing though, is the fact that the glass can be designed to suit any style of kitchen.

Go with bold colour for a statement or back with a concrete or marble look for impact without the price tag of more expensive stone options.

White Done Right

Classic, bright and fresh, a white kitchen done right will be the best feature of your home.

Seek the advice of a professional kitchen designer to ensure that your space is balanced and not too clinical or cold.

Our design team advises to add a pop of colour via appliances, pendants or stools and use texture through benchtops, shelving or flooring to add visual interest.

Intelligent Design

Intelligent kitchen design will see the integration of smart appliances and practical technologies to make cooking, entertaining, cleaning and storage even easier.

Smart fridges, wireless charging benchtops and clever motion technologies for your drawer systems and cabinets are all hot on our list of intelligent kitchen design innovations.

Neutral Tones & Textures

 While kitchen design trends come and go, neutral colour palettes remain popular year in and year out – and for good reason!

Neutral colours ensure your kitchen will feel open and spacious and can be easily adapted to any style and era of home.

A neutral colour palette doesn’t mean you are limited to just plain old white.  We are loving soft whites, timber textures, muted greys and soft greens in 2020!

Marble Looks

Often associated with a sense of luxury and sophistication, marble will continue to be a popular look in 2020.

Take advantage of product advancements and create your marble inspired kitchen without the hefty price tag.  Browse the range of marble inspired designs from Caesarstone or consider using laminate (as seen in the kitchen below). Modern laminate designs look amazing and allow homeowners to have a luxe design without breaking the bank.

Incorporate marble through your benchtops, splashback (glass, tile, stone or laminate) or via accessories such as canisters, pendants, stools, vases and bowls.
