Kitchen Cabinet Designs In 2020
Our Senior Kitchen Designer and Co-Owner at Modiani Kitchens, Kobi Aharon, likes to be one step ahead in terms of the latest kitchen design trends, kitchen models and materials. In order to anticipate international kitchen trends, it is necessary to have a creative mindset, stay up to date with the latest kitchen innovations, as well as to take an active part and approach with regards to the innovation management, research and development processes involved. Our design team at Modiani Kitchens has over 20 years’ experience with European modern high-end kitchen design, and can hence give you top advice and suggest design considerations that you may not have thought of yourself for your 2020 kitchen renovation.
Daring Kitchen Cabinet Colors
Have you ever considered including some strong, prominent cabinet colors in your kitchen space? While classic white and black kitchen cabinets, and especially the playful combination of both, have been popular kitchen colors in 2019, we can see a tendency to the inclusion of intense color spots in 2020 kitchen designs. Rather than to choose just one color for the kitchen cabinets, the trend in 2020 is to choose one or several elements, like the kitchen island, kitchen wall cabinets or base cabinets in daring colors, like dark red, bright yellow, green or navy blue.
In 2020, there is no limitation in terms of which color to choose for your kitchen, as long as it is being combined with classic kitchen cabinet finishes and materials, like dark oak wood, trendy black fenix laminate, classic white glass or a neutral glass cabinet finish.
Minimalistic Kitchen Design
Another trend we can observe in 2020, is the tendency to minimalistic, sleek modern kitchen cabinet design. The idea behind this trend is to allow the kitchen area enough space to breathe and unfold. It is up to you to decide whether to choose minimalistic kitchen design elements throughout the whole interior space, or just for certain elements, like the kitchen island or the shelving systems. You could hence decide to integrate a kitchen island into your space that sacrifices the storage space in favor of a focus on the high-end kitchen floor, or the ability to “see through” the island by only including the most necessary kitchen design elements, like the kitchen island legs and kitchen countertop with integrated sink and/or cooktop.
Another modern kitchen design trend in 2020 is to include a wooden kitchen backsplash instead of wall kitchen cabinets. Our Cesar Williamsburg, Intarsio and the 50’s kitchen model is a beautiful example of such a kitchen design. This is something that can especially be considered for large kitchen spaces, which allows for the incorporation of storage space at different locations within your kitchen.
Innovative Kitchen Shelving
In 2020, the differentiation between the kitchen and living room space becomes smaller and smaller. Increasingly, modern kitchens become part of a so-called “open kitchen concept” that foregoes walls to create one coherent, open and modern interior space. You can hence design wide, welcoming spaces with freestanding kitchen cabinet elements in combination with innovative, easily accessible kitchen shelving solutions. Such kitchen and living room shelves can either have the same or a similar design as your kitchen, or create a strong contrast to your modern kitchen design, thus generating even more attention and buzz.
Our kitchen shelves at Modiani Kitchens are highly customizable, and usually manufactured and imported from Italy, Europe. They can consider different shapes, shelving legs, a variety of wall unit elements, and may include transparent, half-transparent or fabric-integrated glass and cabinet door finishes. One thing is for sure, there are no design limitations in 2020! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for further kitchen design tips, advise and trends in 2020.
