Metal has become a focal element in many residential remodeling kitchen projects. According to Better Homes & Gardens, the addition of metal into your kitchen renovation is a great way to incorporate texture and visual interest to your home in a “trend-forward way.” Many homeowners today blend the use of metal and other types of wood to create a visual appeal. Metals are often incorporated into the kitchen as a backsplash or as hardware.

Color Craze

In January, The Pantone Color Institute announced that classic blue is the 2020 color of the year. Described by Pantone as an “a timeless and enduring hue, elegant in its simplicity” with the ability to “highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation from which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era,” classic blue is a great color to incorporate into renovation and remodeling projects. Classic blue can be incorporated into several different types of remodeling projects. For example, a kitchen remodel can become tranquil with classic blue accent cabinets. Blue accent cabinets have become increasingly more popular in many parts of the kitchen. The incorporation of classic blue into your residential remodeling project is a great way to give your home a unique look.

Technology Advancements

As technology has continued to advance in 2020, many advancements have become implemented into residential remodeling projects. Technological advancements are a trend that allows homeowners to make their homes convenient, flexible, and also affordable. Today, homeowners can add wireless fridges, wireless LED light bulbs, smart faucets, wireless speakers, and much more into your home.

Stainless steel appliances are also a trend that has continued through 2019 into 2020. According to Reviewed, Stainless steel appliances remain a popular choice when searching for a refrigerator, microwave, oven, and dishwasher. However, other stainless-steel colors have become popular in 2020 as well. Your kitchen can also have a dramatic look with a black stainless steel refrigerator. Reviewed explains that black stainless steel appliances have made their way in 10% of kitchens that have been upgraded.

Kitchen Countertops

While last year many homeowners focused on adding granite to their homes, this year, homeowners have strayed away from granite to instead focus on quartz materials. Specifically, engineered quartz, porcelain, and quartzite have been especially popular materials in 2020. Quartz is an excellent material to use in your home because it is low-maintenance and versatile. White quartz countertops are particularly the most popular in 2020.

Storage Maximization

Storage has been an upcoming trend for homeowners this year as well. A key element to fit everything in your kitchen is to have enough storage for those items. Storage is a great way to reduce clutter on your countertops. There are endless different ways to maximize storage in your kitchen. For example, your kitchen can now feature pull out pantry cabinets, spice cabinets, or large drawers to house your pots and pans.
