2020 Vision | Kitchen Trends

by | Jan 14, 2020 | #kitchens

The year ahead promises to be a big one as far as kitchen design is concerned. As initial details emerge on what will be presented at both Eurocucina and KBB this year, we consider the shape of kitchens to come…

SieMatic’s SLX PURE kitchen features aluminum frames in anodized matte black, gold bronze or stainless steel and a 6.5mm ‘floating’ countertop. SieMatic.com

Metallics have been at the forefront of kitchen trends for a while, but with the Metallics Collection from Ledbury Studio, Charlie Smallbone has focused on what he sees as a longer-term trend – metallics with integrity. Smallbone said: “What’s important is that the metallics used are not just there for the sake of it or because they add a bit of design edge, but are executed properly. The trend, for me, is metals in the kitchen that look good, have a reason to be there, and will last.”

The Metallics Collection features real metals including copper, bronze, pewter and zinc. Some are sealed with lacquer so they will stay the same, while others are ‘living finishes’ that will age and change over time. Pictured is the Metallics Collection in copper.

A honed and textured Pietra Di Corinto marble took centre stage in this design by Onestà. It combines the unusual stone with a bookmatched ebony veneer and is accompanied by matt white lacquered units. Onestà / onesta.design

One of the trends that will define 2020 is shrinking living space, which directly impacts the kitchen and the demand for clever storage solutions. A number of Scavolini’s collections now include trolleys that can be moved around the kitchen, as required, offering additional storage and prep space.

Another thoughtful storage detail is the handy storage compartment concealed beneath a hinged section of the worktop. Made of beech, it comes complete with space for a rolling pin, kitchen roll holder, magnetic knife rack and chopping board. Scavolini / scavolini.com
