Here we’ve collated some of the kitchen trends in 2020 which we think are going to be popular throughout the industry. Some are returning trends whilst some are surfacing for the first time.
The Industrial look
In kitchen design, using raw earthy materials has become a trend over the last 10 years. We’re seeing more and more ways to get this industrial theme into our homes with heavy-duty taps and appliances along with concrete style worktops and flooring. Industrial style kitchen units have also been growing in popularity with people mixing the rustics metals with soft woods to create beautiful two tone settings.
Forest Green, Olive, and Sage colours
Kitchen trends have come along way since the 1970s infamous Avocado green. However different shades of green in our kitchens have made a rise again! Green is beautifully calming and looks particularly stunning when paired with brass handles (which are also prominent in 2020 kitchen trends) and fittings. Forest Green, Olive, and Sage colours are paired with latte shades, soft metallic and black smoky glass in modern kitchens, and cream and grey in traditional settings. If you’re not brave enough for a full green kitchen, introduce some green within your kitchen in the tea towels, dishes, oven mitts and plant pots.
Calming feature walls are also a growing kitchen trend in 2020. What’s more rejuvenating than a blush pink or light grey feature wall to brighten up a space? People want to feel relaxed and refreshed when in their kitchen and a splash of colour on the walls can introduce this perfectly. Textured walls have also become popular in the kitchen. *Micro-cementing creates an endless range of textured, waterproof designs which are exclusive to you. It can be used for feature walls, splashbacks, floors, and ceilings for a fantastic alternative to tiles.

Matching Living Furniture
One of the most popular themes we are seeing is seamlessly connecting the kitchen and living room spaces. Open-planned kitchens are the heart of our homes and creating a comfortable beautifully presented living space is hugely important. Matching living room furniture to your kitchen looks absolutely fantastic and gives a seamless flow between the two areas.
The best way to achieve that contemporary seamless look is reducing clutter on your worktops. Swapping that bulky kettle for our Quooker tap which produces boiling, filtered, sparkling and chilled water. Making better use of your pantry and cupboard space is also a good way to reduce unnecessary worktop clutter.
