2020 KITCHEN TRENDS
A Look at the Most Anticipated Kitchen, Bathroom and Bedroom Trends in 2020.
Every year, we see a number of classic interior design trends return for yet another year of triumph, while new innovations in contemporary and modern style keep the scene fresh. As far as 2020 is concerned, it looks full of similar promises in innovation and even some classic comebacks as well.
Let’s now take a look at some of those most anticipated and upcoming trends in interior design, and the core driving forces which are influencing them.
CLASSIC COMEBACKS: IN-FRAME KITCHENS
Traditional in-frame kitchens are making their way back on-trend next year, with both shaker-style and classic slabs already seeing a surge in popularity. Taking a look at the Baystone Contemporary kitchen in Stone Blue makes it obvious as to why the simple, clean and efficient design is so appealing, even after being in trend for many years now.
MATT IS CLASSY & TRENDY
Shine has its place in interior design of course, but matt finishing almost always adds a touch of class in the bedroom. The light absorption properties of matt finishing actually accentuate high-quality workmanship, which is why it’s going to be the popular choice for classy, expensive bedroom décor in 2020.
FEATURE DOORS: A TYPICALLY MODERN DESIGN ELEMENT
Feature doors are characterised primarily by their conflicting and eye-catchy designs, which contrast the frame and the surrounding wall beautifully. Available in both matt and gloss, the Cosdon Kitchen doors without handles and contrasting designs are already beginning to catch on fast. In 2020, feature doors should be the modern trend to look out for in both interior and exterior door options.
PERSONALISATION IN INTERIOR DECOR: THE RULING THEME OF 2020
If there was a singular, all-encompassing theme in remodelling and redesigning that is already taking over the market, it would be the theme of personalisation, or what is often known as bespoke kitchen, bedroom or bathroom remodelling.
The idea is simple to understand, but in application, the variations in result and their uniqueness quotient is unmatched. The homeowner can choose any one design theme and make subtle changes to it to suit their own sense of style and aesthetics, or alternatively, they can combine multiple themes to find the mishmash they are looking for.
COLOUR & FINISHING
Darker shades were a hit in 2019, and there is no reason to believe that dark grey will go out of style anytime soon in interior décor. Alongside deeper shades of grey, expect dark blue and green in their various shades to be quite popular next year.
Rose gold and brass finishing for accessories such as cookware and cutlery are perfect to create the necessary contrast with darker backgrounds, so they are expected to be popular as well. The metallic theme in general might also see a lot of use in remodelling next year, albeit in the form of small dabs in the foreground, rather than being used as the primary theme of course.
TECHNOLOGY WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE PRIMARY INFLUENCER
Most of the innovative trends we already discussed are silently being boosted and improved continuously, thanks to the technological breakthroughs and implementations.
Everything from the manufacturing, availability and improvements in quality, to even wider affordability is a direct result of the technological revolution.
In marketing, social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube are pushing old ideas back into trend, while leading new ideas into fruition. Where it was just a concept in the designer’s mind, innovation is now becoming a trend itself.
It is to be noted though, that another key influencer in the home remodelling and redecorating industry are the Home and Lifestyle magazines. The only hope we have is that these magazines will quickly drop the chrome, as well as the copper trends we saw them promoting even now, as these metallic themes have since lost most of their popularity.
