2020 is finally here and maybe you’ve gotten tired of looking at the same old kitchen cabinets and you’re longing to drink your morning cup of coffee in a more inspiring setting.
Or perhaps you’re really into cooking and decided that the possibilities your kitchen currently offers just won’t do. Some people will move into a new place and simply can’t feel at home unless the kitchen “speaks to them”.
Sean Hayes, General Manager at Hausera told us, “Through our 2019 survey we found that the top three reasons homeowners plan to renovate their kitchen are: adapting to lifestyle changes, increasing property value before selling and improving the functionality of a space.”
Whatever your reasons might be, we’re here to help you get started with a few interior design trends that are expected to rise to the top this year.
Color Scheme: Moody or Soothing? What Do You Prefer?
If you’re looking for a moodier vibe for your kitchen, designers predict that navy blue will remain a popular choice. You’re on a budget? No problem. Just imagine how luxurious it will look if you simply paint your cabinets navy blue and change the knobs and pulls to a rich gold or maybe a copper with a brushed finish? Since mixing metals is no longer seen as taboo you can really play with it and express yourself through a variety of themes.
Perhaps you’re more into green living. If that’s the case, sage green is really in vogue right now with more people realizing the importance of protecting our environment and wanting to feel closer to nature. It makes the room feel soothing, someplace where you can relax and put your mind at ease.
Bring the Outdoors in With a Few Potted Plants
The kitchen isn’t really the first place you think of when you want to find a place for a new plant. But why is that? We spend so much time in the kitchen so of course it would make sense to make it look more aesthetically appealing and comfortable.
Plants are not just in style, they also help with stress and anxiety. We recommend you stick to options that are less fussy and consider the amount of sunlight your kitchen can provide. Bonsais, areca palms, jasmine bushes and aloe vera will make the space look like your own little oasis without adding more work to your already long list of chores.
The industrial look with it’s avant-garde use of intricate metal work has quickly become one of the most sought-after kitchen designs. Part of its popularity is due to the fact that it’s such a versatile look that you can adjust it to suit any size room, budget and personality.
You can use bare metal pipes for light mixtures and to make your own shelves, add some retro appliances which are also very stylish right now and create a room with a nostalgic atmosphere. It’s beautiful how you can use the old as inspiration to make something that fits so perfectly with the current fancies.
