Kitchens are one of the busiest rooms in our homes. It’s where we cook our daily meals, catch-up with family, and, inevitably, end up during house gatherings.
To kick off the new decade, you might be planning to give your kitchen a complete redesign, or a more budget-friendly freshen up. As the hub of so much activity in the home, you’ll want your kitchen to not only be functional, but stylish too.
To help you start planning your dream kitchen, we’ve uncovered the top kitchen design trends of 2020:
The two-tone trend injects an element of ‘wow’ into your kitchen. This design often features darker-coloured base kitchen units, and a lighter colour on your upper units. If you’re feeling brave, you could even opt for contrasting walls or splashbacks. At Dream Doors we work with you to create the kitchen of your dreams, allowing you to customise every aspect.
A lot of work in the kitchen centres around the kitchen sink, so make a splash with this year’s trend of statement taps. A focal point in the kitchen, taps are becoming as important a design feature as your kitchen cabinets or kitchen worktops. We offer taps in a range of designs, colours and functions to match – or contrast – with your kitchen’s characteristics and make life simpler.
Eliminating clutter and simplifying storage spaces has become a way of life in recent years. And this trend is set to continue right through the new decade. We’ve found the best way to achieve this is by using all available kitchen space with smart storage. At Dream Doors, all of our storage solutions can be tailored to suit your kitchen’s requirements to make use of any awkward or unconventional spaces.
As a nation, we’re increasingly aware of the impact our lives are having on the environment. And creating your dream kitchen really doesn’t have to cost the earth. Our kitchen makeovers retain the existing shell of your kitchen, only refreshing the tired aspects, such as kitchen cupboard doors, drawers, or worktops. Not only is it friendlier to the environment by creating less waste, but kinder to your wallet too.
Make a statement by adding a pop of Pantone's colour of the year 2020: Classic Blue. The colour blue has connotations of calm, elegance and simplicity – perfect for a kitchen which is a hive of activity. At Dream Doors, our modern, classic, traditional, and contemporary kitchens are available in a range of blue shades – choose from pastel blue through to deep navy.
Open shelving gives you an opportunity to showcase your personality and style. It also provides quick and easy access when you’re cooking up a storm! Replacing a traditional cabinet door with a glass panelled door or open shelving can make smaller spaces seem brighter and larger. All of our kitchens allow you to customise the kitchen doors and shelves to reflect your kitchen needs.
Designing or redesigning your kitchen can be intimidating at first. At Dream Doors, we walk you through the entire process, from idea gathering, through to installation – taking away any stress.
