Like the rest of the design world, the kitchen trends are always changing. Here are some trends you can expect to emerge in 2020 and beyond.
In recent years, white surfaces have dominated, but the color is officially making a comeback in 2020. Light and bold cabinets will be a popular style in the new year.
Design experts predict that different shades of green will be especially popular for cabinets. Bright Kelly, subtle mint and even gloomy olives should be furious. For those who are not interested in green, dark blue lower cabinets are also in style.
The green movement will be as vibrant as ever in 2020 and encourage sustainable materials to become larger staples in household kitchens. Studies show that strong majorities of consumers, especially younger buyers, are increasingly willing to pay more cash for goods produced in an environmentally friendly way.
For this reason kitchen products such as cabinets constructed of environmentally sensitive materials will gain popularity next calendar year. Bamboo is becoming an important go-to, as are recycled and otherwise recycled materials.
This trend is more a revival, as glass cabinets were popular in the 90s. Experts believe that 2020 will revive this trend because of the increased focus on simplicity and organization in kitchens. Minimalism and transparency are becoming increasingly valuable for homeowners who want to limit clutter, improve workflow and showcase their favorite items.
The technology world continues to rule in 2020. Smart kitchen appliances and appliances will be more present than Ever.
Whether they read recipes, which allows users to easily add items to their food lists, set a timer for what's in the oven or diagnose appliances, these devices make life in the kitchen easier than ever.  Mixed metals
Using different metals for hardware that adorns your cabinets, drawers and plumbing will be a major trend in 2020, opening up opportunities to create both contrast and cohesion with your design choices.
Metals that will remain popular are cold brushed nickel, copper and brass. Rose gold, which has been quite hot lately, will begin to fade as a widespread choice for kitchens. Black matte hardware will be a favorite choice for taps.
Stainless appliances have been on the up and up for quite some time, but darker appliances will have their moment in the sun 2020. In fact, black stainless steel appliances already contain about 10 percent of the updated kitchens. Dark stoves, refrigerators and other appliances add drama to a space and can act as a statement piece.
If you choose to fit your kitchen in dark appliances, remember that brands can offer slightly different shades. It would be wise to stick to a brand if you go this route to depart from the subtle – but noticeable – differences.
Already popular in 2019, this trend seems to be here to stay, until further notice. Quartz countertops will continue their reign, allowing homeowners to skip the seal and scrub.
The low maintenance and shimmering look of quartz remain attractive enough to keep these counters comfortable in style for 2020. They also have versatility on their side, as their neutral colors make them easy to pair with the colored cabinets mentioned above.
Expanded baking trays
Backplates have been at the forefront of kitchen trends in recent years, and by 2020 they will only grow larger – literally.
This year comes the popularity of backplates that extend beyond the traditional square images. Instead of staying in their designated "between the cabinet and the bottom of the cabinet", they will expand their horizons dramatically, with some homeowners lifting their background plants all the way up to the ceiling. This redesign can create a bold, cohesive focus for your kitchen design.
