One of the most important parts of the kitchen, both aesthetically and practically, is cabinetry. Taking up the majority of visual space in your kitchen, the cabinets you pick will have a big impact on the overall look of your kitchen. With so many styles, colours, and finishes on the market, it can be challenging deciding what design is right for your home. Check out the cabinet trends homeowners are loving in 2020.
1. Invest in Eco-Friendly
A big trend in design this year is focusing on materials that have a positive impact on the environment. Using recycled or reclaimed materials is a great way to do this. Even big-box stores like IKEA are coming out with cabinets made from recycled materials like plastic. If reducing your impact on the environment is important to you, speak to your kitchen renovation pro about using cabinets made from recycled materials.

2. Grey is Here to Stay
Grey is an on-again-off-again favourite when it comes to neutrals. This year, we’ll be seeing a lot more grey cabinets in a variety of shades. Shades of grey can add sophistication to any kitchen. Soft pallets and pastels are just one of two stark colour trends in kitchens this year. Too boring? Keep reading as the other colour trends might be for you.
3. The Dark Side
In stark contrast to the light and bright white kitchens we’ve seen for decades, in 2020 it’s all about joining the dark side. From deep greens to rich purples and even pure black, dark coloured cabinets are going to be a huge trend in 2020. Can’t commit to a completely dark kitchen? Consider doing half of your cabinets in a dark colour and the other half in a lighter colour. The contrast of colours will create drama in your kitchen design.
4. Jewel Tones
In addition to dark colours being in, jewelled tones are also making a comeback. We’ve seen them around the home in wallpaper and velvet furniture but now it’s time for the kitchen to look like a treasure chest. Greens, purples, blues and reds, all of your favourite gems can now be found in cabinets. Ready for change? Have your current cabinets custom painted for a royal treatment.
5. Wooden Wonders
Natural wood is making its way into kitchens this year. Echoing the mid-century modern craze that’s overtaken the rest of the home, we’ll now see wood cabinets in trendy 2020 kitchens. If your kitchen has clean white lines, adding wood may be your perfect accent. Wood does a good job of bringing the past into the present, making it a timeless choice.
