Want to renovate your kitchen? Not sure what design trend is the best choice for your project? Kitchen design is always changing, so it’s hard to keep up with the latest trends and know what ideas will enhance both the beauty and function of your kitchen. So at Nicholas Carpentry, we’ve put together a list of a few great kitchen renovation ideas for 2020. Read on to get all the details.
1. Adding A Kitchen Island
A kitchen island can be a versatile storage solution, and also provide you with added utility if you decide to install extra appliances like a wine cooler, ice maker, trash compactor, or any other such appliance.
Along with the extra storage space, you’ll get plenty of counter space that will help you get the space you need to prepare meals more efficiently. This is particularly useful if you have a smaller kitchen, or the layout lacks a lot of counter space.
2. Replacing Kitchen Cabinets And Opening Shelving
Kitchen cabinets may not always be the best storage solution! You can remove upper cabinets and replace them with shelving for a low cost. This is great for smaller, open plan kitchens.
Removing the large, bulky cabinets can make the space feel more light and airy, particularly when paired with natural lighting or bright kitchen lights. It’s also easier to locate dinnerware, appliances, and other items since they won’t be hidden away.
3. Subway Tile Floor Or Natural Wood Floors
Depending on your budget, you may want to choose floor tiles or natural wood. Floor tiles create a more chic, modern look, while a natural material like wood will make your kitchen feel a bit more rustic and welcoming.
Tiles are more water-resistant but can crack over time with repeated use. Natural wood flooring, on the other hand, won’t crack, but is less water-resistant – you’ll need to take care to wipe up spills as they happen to avoid water damage. Consider your budget and the pros and cons of each flooring material to make the right choice.
4. Bold Pops Of Colour Throughout Your Kitchen
Got a white kitchen? Neutral colours are always chic and fashionable, but why settle only for neutrals? You can pick some bold accent colours – red or blue, for example – and find ways to incorporate them throughout your home. You can put up a patterned kitchen backsplash, for example, or paint one wall in an accent colour to add a splash of fun to your newly-renovated kitchen.
Or, you could even choose to incorporate colour into your appliances. A retro-styled fridge, for example, could add some unique style and colour to your newly-renovated kitchen.
5. Stainless Steel Appliances And Fixtures
If you want appliances that will stay chic and stylish for years to come, it’s hard to beat stainless steel. Replacing your appliances and fixtures with brushed steel models is a great way to unify the look of your kitchen, and make it look more unified and modern.
