Check out the 7 kitchen trends expected in 2020
January is nearly over, which probably means, like most fabricators you are back at work and focusing on the new year ahead. Are you thinking about what challenges you may face and what items you need to be showcasing in your 2020 showroom? We at Stonegate have done all the hard work for you, trawling the internet to look for and collate all the predicted kitchen trends for 2020 into one convenient place.
So, here we go…
Beautiful veined marble worktops are making a welcomed return to the kitchen worktop. No longer favouring the minimalistic, clean-cut look, the beautiful natural effect of marble is tipped to make a comeback. Marble, of course, is not for every kitchen due to its porous nature but with marble effect quartzite giving customer the look and feel of marble and the durability of quartzite, we’d expect to see a rise in this worktop too.
Check out our range of tooling for marble and quartzite here.
Mixed materials increase in popularity this year and we expect 2020 to continue with this trend, islands with both wood and stone give a beautiful natural look to any space.
Big Bold and Beautiful Colour
2019 was the year of nature, but in 2020 we are expecting to see big bold splashes of colours creep into kitchens. Be it in cabinets, countertops, appliances or splashbacks, statement colours are going to be a big hit this year. Luckily, with our new colour match Bondex Adhesive range, carefully selected to match most stone, Stonegate will have you covered with all you need to make this dream kitchen.
Twice the Islands
With open plan living continuing to be a popular style for most living spaces, fabricators are seeing a rise in twin islands in kitchens. With more space to play with twin islands can provide somewhere to eat at, cook at and prepare food at, while still socially entertaining guests.
This retro kitchen feature has made a comeback, with customers building in larders into their dream kitchen as a great use of space and storage.
This year copper fixtures and fittings were all the rage, but next year we are moving on to the stunning class of gold. Gold taps, gold handles or gold lighting, however it is used, you can expect to see a rise in stunning gold fixtures in 2020.
Handles are officially a thing of the past as modern kitchens are favouring the sleek handleless design to create a free-flowing look to their kitchens. Instead kitchen cabinetry with built-in recesses or even smarter technology openings will be seeing a rise in 2020 to create that seamless look of simplicity.
So, there we have it, the 7 top predicted kitchen trends for 2020 and what looks like another great year for stone. As always, if you need any help with your tooling or advice on getting the best possible cut contact the technical team today.
