The Kitchen and Bath Show was held in Las Vegas at the end of January. We were lucky enough to have our very own Jake Spurgeon, Mosby Senior Designer, attend the event so he could give us the scoop on the upcoming trends. Here’s what’s predicted to be hot (or not) in 2020:

1. Islands

Islands are still dominating kitchens, and we’re hearing our clients say, “the bigger the better.” They want plenty of space to prep and prepare, as well as casual seating for guests.

2. Granite is Fading

Clients are choosing surfaces that require less maintenance, such as Quartz. Quartz can be used for countertops,  backsplashes, and even flooring.

3. Glam Hardware

Gold is back and it’s here to stay. Many homeowners are choosing to mix metals. It’s now acceptable to pair gold cabinet hardware with stainless steel appliances. And let’s face it, tastes can change. If down the road you decide that gold hardware isn’t your thing, then switching out hardware is easy and not terribly expensive.

4. Blues are In

We’re seeing many clients choose to add a pop of color with their white kitchen. Some popular colors are shades of blue, such as navy, royal or even a subtle robin egg blue. In addition to blue, other colors such as black or dark grey look great for the island or accent areas. A mahogany exotic wood is a classic choice. Anything you can do to make your island look richer is a good idea, as long as it still coordinates with your cabinets.

5. Appliances

Most manufacturers are offering appliances in a variety of colors now. If you don’t find a color you like, choose any shade on the color spectrum and it can be applied to your refrigerator, dishwasher or other appliances. The sky is the limit!

6. Technology

Now your home can be as smart as you! Technology is making it’s way into almost every part of the house; appliances, lighting, and faucets to name a few. Would you like to save time making dinner? Why wait until you get home, then waste valuable time preheating your oven. Now from your phone, you can remotely operate your oven settings before you leave the office. Walk-in your home and be ready to pop that meal into the oven. Now that is convenient!

7. Tile

Elongated subway tile has evolved into more of a rectangle shape, allowing the tile to be laid more offset or in a herringbone pattern. Take your backsplash to new heights by bringing it all the way up to the ceiling, it is a nice alternative to the standard subway tile placement.

8. Message Centers

Homeowners are removing those bulky old kitchen desks that just collect paper and are instead opting for what is termed, a message center. It’s a dedicated spot for mail, keys, family calendar, etc. Get ready to operate from your command central!
