This year’s kitchen and bath design trends are all about elevated storage, increased functionality, and softened color schemes. The cold stark kitchens of recent years are out and warmth is in. We’ve put together our predictions for the top 2020 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends. If you’re ready to update your home this year, consider one of these top trends!
Cultivated Kitchen Pantries
The typical pantry may be behind closed doors, but that doesn’t mean it can’t shine! Homeowners are taking a renewed interest in aesthetically pleasing home organization and that extends to the kitchen. Form meets function with a collection of cheerful baskets, jars, and containers fit to hold all your pantry essentials like cereal, dry goods, pasta, snacks, spices, canned goods, and more.

We are still coming off of a multiple year trend of all-white kitchens that could occasionally appear on the cold side. But, don’t get us wrong, we still love the clean, classic uniformity of an all-white kitchen. And yet, many are opting to incorporate warmer finishes in their kitchens. Blue, green, and wood toned islands have become a staple in the heart of the home with the perfect balance of warmth. We love how this space features a matching pantry pocket door.

Statement Making Kitchen Sinks
The kitchen sink, frequently placed in the center of a room underneath a picturesque window, can anchor the entire space. Functionality will always be the biggest factor impacting the buying decisions of those in the market for a new sink. According to Qualified Remodeler, “A kitchen sink is large and quite visible, and is often the first thing that catches your eye when you walk into a kitchen. The look and style of the kitchen sink will thus define the general aesthetics and beauty of your kitchen. Customers and designers are getting more and more aware of this and are looking for ways to enhance the beauty of a kitchen sink without compromising on functionality.”

It wasn’t long ago that consumers were given the choice of white, black, and stainless steel appliances. Unless you were willing to make a substantial investment in luxury brand appliances, your options were limited at best. Today, the possibilities are endless. GE, for example, recently debuted their latest line of Café appliances, a bold and customizable collection of ranges, dishwashers, microwaves, cooktops, ovens, hoods, and refrigerators. With personalized appliance options such as these, your kitchen will always be one-of-a-kind.

Bathroom trends in 2020 emphasize having a luxurious spa experience at home. Say goodbye to small combination shower and bathtub units and say hello to spacious freestanding bathtubs. This freestanding oval bathtub featured on Décor Pad “sits beneath a matte black tub filler mounted beneath a marble ledge located under a window framed by white and gray mosaic wall tiles.” This picturesque and relaxing setting is exactly what we want to come home to after a long day!

What goes hand-in-hand with a free standing bathtub? A walk-in shower of course! This year homeowners are embracing the best of both worlds with a beautiful and freestanding bathtub, in addition to a spacious and spa like walk-in shower. Walk-in showers offer more space, an endless array of style options, increased accessibility, and they are easy to clean. A walk-in shower is also more likely to increase the value of your home than a fiberglass shower.

Exposed Shower Plumbing Fixtures
During a time when industrial style is all the rage, it’s fitting that exposed plumbing would be the latest trend in bathroom design. According to HGTV, “Exposed shower pipes are on track to become one of the year’s biggest bathroom trends – and it’s not hard to figure out why. Bathrooms, in general, are notoriously difficult to revamp – their cramped quarters and limited wall space makes most design ideas a nuisance – which is what makes exposed pipe systems an easy fix when it comes to refreshing your space.”
