The perfect kitchen is much more than a place for preparing meals: it should be a real source of inspiration for your creative talent and for extravagant dining experiences. That is why, when designing your dream kitchen, you shouldn’t exclusively focus on the practical side of things, but rather think of it as an expression of your personality. One of the more obvious ways you can convey visual aesthetics is the bold use of colors: from pieces of furniture through countertops and walls, and to your kitchen appliances there are a myriad of opportunities available for you to put a twist on the traditional kitchen. Read on and discover the most amazing color trends of 2020 in the kitchen!
Green is the color of life, filling you with a sense of peace and calmness. The everlasting popularity of green won’t decline in 2020 either, but the trends are pointing towards the use of fresh, youthful shades of green in the kitchen. If you’re looking for an inspirational and motivated time in the kitchen, the many shades of green are sure to bring energy into your home, including pinegreen, sage, or even petroleum green, as well as the truly timeless, slightly colder shades of this classic color.
One of the inevitable colors in homes of 2020 will be blue: Pantone chose Classic Blue as the Color of the Year 2020, conveying stability and reliability in the kitchen. According to Pantone, “a boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and the open flow of communication.” Along with Classic Blue, marine and navy blue also prove to be inspiring choices for introducing color in your kitchen, mostly in the form of furniture pieces and cabinet fronts, bringing a balanced atmosphere to your home.
If blue is just a bit too cold for your taste, it’s easy to warm it up with a number of appropriate colors, such as the elegant terracotta or the sophisticated burgundy. Falling in between orange and brown, terracotta can transform and warm your kitchen up even if applied to only a select number of surfaces. It’s perfect for combinations with other warmer shades, but cooler colors - such as blue - can result in an exciting contrast, and can even bring a cold color such as grey to life. Burgundy radiates luxury in your home, but it grows to its full potential when applied in an appropriate way in your home. So, if you decide on this rich color for your kitchen, be sure to fully explore your possibilities when it comes to surface solutions and complementing colors to give burgundy the attention it deserves.
The more neutral cream colors are mostly used as complementing stronger colors, but you shouldn’t be afraid to apply them on their own in your kitchen. They convey a clean, minimalist character, creating space for the diversity and detailed texture of surfaces become the center of attention. More subtle shades allow for bolder forms of decoration: colorful, patterned surfaces, and exciting accessories will be able to truly shine on their own. One of the most popular colors of 2020 is powder pink with its fine, subtle feminine style bringing harmony to any interior, including your dream kitchen.
