It's hard to believe we are over half way through this crazy year we will never forget. I did a little research and rounded up some notable 2020 kitchen design trends according to Houzz, the Washington Post and the KBIS Kitchen and Bath Show.

#1 Blue + Green Cabinets

While white kitchen cabinets still account for about 40% of all installations, there is a definite trend toward using blue and green finishes. Blues run the gamut from soft tones all the way to navy. But then, there is green.... ranging from light greens and sage to rich, moody dark greens. I have to say it looks amazing.

# 2 Blue Kitchen Islands

Blue kitchen islands are still the most popular choice when it comes to adding a splash of color to otherwise all white kitchens.

#3 Mixed Wood Tones

For people who prefer a more transitional look, mixed wood tones are making a come back. These work well on flat front cabinets. One color can be used for the perimeter and another on the island.

#4 Accent Wood Tones

Accent wood tones are being used in surprising places like on drawer fronts, shelves and pullouts as a way to warm up otherwise cool kitchen tones.

#5 Mixed Metal Finishes

Mixed metal finishes are being introduced in plumbing fixtures, appliances, lighting and cabinet hardware. Matte black and dark stainless look great mixed with brass and other colors.

#6 Sink Work Station

Speciality sinks with work stations are gaining in popularity featuring cutting boards, draining areas and drying racks. They make food prep a breeze and act as an extension to your countertop.

#7 Full Backsplash Wall

Full backsplash walls are created by running tile from the countertop all the way up to the ceiling. This feature is usually found on the main cooking wall as an accent.
