At Doppler Construction, Inc., we love kitchens – they’re one of our favorite parts of the home to remodel. A kitchen remodel presents the opportunity for the fusion of function and creativity, combining unique style and beauty with practical and utilitarian design. If you are thinking about remodeling your kitchen this year, we can help. Not only can we perform all of the heavy lifting associated with your kitchen remodel project, but we can also offer insight and counsel when it comes to the top trends in kitchen design. Here are some trends to keep in mind for kitchen design and remodeling in 2020–
Remember when granite countertops were all the rage? While they may still be fairly popular, 2020 is likely to see an increase in marble countertops, as well as big slabs of marble serving as kitchen backsplashes. For those who love the look of marble but don’t have the budget to support it, engineered quartz is a great alternative, and telling the difference between the two materials with the naked eye is tough.
The days of cabinets may be gone for good; instead, people are now opting for open shelving as a way to show off dishware and create a more open, airy feeling in the kitchen. Big slabs of wood–often unfinished wood at that–are quite popular for shelves in 2020. Opting for shelving instead of cabinets means more space, which is often preferable for those who have smaller kitchens.
Open layouts have been popular for years now, and that trend is continuing for 2020. Rather than having the dining/living room and the kitchen as two distinct rooms that are separated by a wall, new homes are being built–and older homes being remodeled–to remove that wall, leading to one single, cohesive open space. This is the perfect layout for entertaining, engaging the family in cooking and food preparation, and keeping folks together. Use one uniform color on the walls to create a flow from one room to the other that seems natural, and use pops of color in each room individually as you see fit.
