Kitchen Trends for 2020

Every year, interior designers look at past trends to try to predict what will be most popular in the new year. 2020 was no exception and the pros have spoken. Let’s dive into a few of the most exciting kitchen design trends for 2020!


Marble Countertops 

Many of the pros are predicting increased attention to marble countertops this year, particularly marble with dark and visible grains. There’s a certain type of beauty and elegance in natural marble that is proud to show off its beauty through bold grains. According to designers, people will start to find ways to incorporate more marble into the kitchen, specifically as countertops, but also as backsplashes, accent pieces, and more. If you want to join in on this trend, take a look at Planet Stone’s selection of marble surfaces and then give us a call to get started at (818) 860-7142. 


Bold Backsplashes

According to reports, 2020 will say “goodbye” to plain and inconspicuous backsplashes in favor of brightly colored, and highly detailed options. With all of the tiles and stone available to homeowners today, it’s no surprise that this trend is making a comeback. Some people will choose the intricate tilework route, while others will decide to go with a bolder stone surface and bring it higher up the wall than in past years. These flashy backsplashes will be especially popular behind stoves leading all the way up to cabinets or the hood!

Reclaimed Wood

2020 is likely to see a booming interest in reclaimed wood. This kitchen trend isn’t necessarily new, but it has been growing steadily over the last few years. People love the old-time, rustic feel that reclaimed wood brings to the kitchen. Kitchen design has also seen a shift to industrialism, which can incorporate reclaimed wood. This type of style is great for older homes to really emphasize the rusticness, as well as modern homes if you want to make it a bit more cozy. If you’re interested in this 2020 kitchen design trend, consider updating your countertops to a sleek stone surface. For reclaimed wood kitchens, we recommend stone countertops that are either very light or very dark. There are often so many colors in the wood that any type of large grain and middle-of-the-road color stone will look overwhelming. Granite options like our Absolute Black and Imperial White could be great contenders. These are just a few of the many stone surfaces we offer that could work for you, so check out our other offerings on the Planet Stone website. 


Painted Ceilings

While the all-white kitchen is still a classic, people are putting a twist on it by painting their ceilings! Lighter colors can make the ceiling look taller and the room look brighter whereas deeper shades can give a homey atmosphere. While painting a ceiling can seem like a bold move, the experts say it’s one that will pay off when you see the finished result! By painting the ceiling, you can keep most of the kitchen white without it feeling too cold and stiff. You can add a pop of color where it’s least expected, and inspire your guests to go home and do the same!
