Kitchen Trends 2020
1. Two-toned kitchens
Forget matchy-matchy, kitchens are becoming more blended as we enter a new decade. ‘The trend for combining two colours throughout kitchen cabinetry is set to soar in 2020,’ says Andy Briggs, interior designer for Optiplan Kitchens. ‘It’s a great approach to adding an interesting twist to your aesthetic and it can change the whole feel of the room.
Opt for deep, dark units and contrast with brighter shades elsewhere in order to add depth and character to the space.’
The trend extends beyond just a contrasting paint colour on the walls. From the cabinets to the worktops, it gives you the freedom to explore different design elements. Andy goes on to say, ‘You can play around with rich textures such as wood grains, matt finishes or sleek laminate’. Using them juxtaposition creates instant interest.
