Kitchen Must Have’s for 2020


When it comes to kitchen upgrading, there are endless possibilities. However, using our experience and understanding of the evolving kitchen renovation trends, we have created a list of top kitchens must-haves for 2020; keeping in mind the increasingly popular preferences of Alberta homeowners. 

Convertible Backsplash:

Have you ever thought about using your kitchen backsplash for decorative or storage purposes? If you haven’t, now is the time to consider it. Backsplashes that can be converted into shelves are a top trend this year. It is largely inspired by European kitchens, and natural stones like granite or marble will be the preferred choice of homeowners in convertible backsplashes. You can conveniently display any decorative accessories such as mugs, glasses, cookbooks or even family photos and make efficient use of your backsplash. However, we suggest that you choose the same materials for the backsplash and countertop to ensure maximum harmony.

Organizing Kitchens with Storage Walls:

The trend of installing many, many cabinets throughout the kitchen to enhance storage capacity is becoming an outdated trend. Nowadays, homeowners are opting for a more functional yet compact design that increase storage and assists in organizing the kitchen. Installing full size cabinets from floor to ceiling is going to be a top trend in kitchen cabinetry. It is a perfect solution if your kitchen doesn’t have a pantry or there isn’t enough space available for building one.

Trendy Knobs and Slimmer Handles:

Going minimalist is the trend to watch out for in 2020. Slimmer or barely-there knobs and cabinet handles will be an outstanding addition to your kitchen. These are minor additions, but can instantly make the kitchen appear modern and trendy even if you don’t redesign the cabinets. Such handles give the kitchen a unified look. You can choose from a wide variety of knobs and handles in many different shapes, sizes, designs and finishes.

Preference for Natural Materials:

This year homeowners will be looking to integrate natural materials in to their homes, especially in the kitchen. With new organic kitchen trends, material quality will hold maximum weightage and natural materials will definitely be the show stealer. If this style speaks to you, you should consider choosing wood, quartz, marble or other natural materials to use in your kitchen cabinets, countertops and even floor tiles. While still elegant, glossy finishes are trending less in Canada and matte finishes are becoming most popular.
