We tend to spend a lot of time in our kitchens. It’s also one of the first rooms guests see, and it’s at the heart of the home. For all of these reasons, keeping our kitchens updated, stylish, and functional is perhaps more important than any other other room in the house. However, kitchen design trends move fast. To keep up, we reached out to Chris from CG Design Studio about what the key trends will be for 2020
A – Combining styles
The Shaker style kitchen has been popular for some years now and for good reason. It has classic lines, the often crisp white palette is timeless and well suited to the classic Queenslander. In 2020 this style continues to be popular, but we will see it mixed with more streamlined cabinetry, straight lines, minimal handles and contemporary fittings. Creating a new classic that is adaptable to both classic and contemporary interiors.
B – Natural
Going Natural has been a popular lifestyle choice which is becoming part of our daily lives and we are now wanting our homes to reflect this. We have seen natural fabrics and fibres have a resurgence. One of our favourites being rattan.
We have fallen in love with rattan and wicker furniture all over again and the natural material teamed with timber, travertine, terracotta and brass is a big trend we are going to see more of. Equally, natural stone benchtops like travertine and limestone, are making a big comeback. Although more porous than man made options, the patina they develop over time suits this relaxed earthy trend.
C -Merging Spaces
When planning your kitchen in 2020, think about more than an open plan with a butler’s pantry to the side. We are going to see the open plan trend go a step further. With kitchens becoming more furniture-like and integrated with our living areas, our living spaces are becoming more part of the kitchen. Seating nooks, sunken lounges and interior gardens all merging into one communal zone.
