2020 Kitchen Trends

Granite and Quartz Installations Manchester, 2020 kitchen trends

It’s a new decade, bringing with it changing trends.

Here are our predictions for what to consider if you’re planning a kitchen makeover in 2020.

Smart kitchen

It appears there isn’t a single built-in kitchen appliance that can’t be controlled using a Smart phone.That could be preheating the oven on your way home from work or switching on a dishwasher from the comfort of your sofa.Plug-in appliances such as kettles, microwaves and toasters can also be voice-activated and operated using your phone, so preparing breakfast has never been easier.Smart kitchens have been a popular addition to homes over the past few years but with so many new products on the market that you can control whenever and wherever; the next 12 months will see more people make that choice.

Granite and quartz

Stone worktops are a timeless addition to any kitchen and 2020 will be no different.Granite or quartz counters are not only an impressive aesthetic choice for your space; they are durable, and represent a valuable investment.Both are rated at an impressive 7 on the Moh’s hardness scale making them a perfect material for a kitchen worktop that must be hard-wearing and sustainable.Additionally, at a moment when our carbon footprint is more important than ever, selecting naturally-sourced stone is represents a responsible approach.A move towards the modern, eco-conscious kitchen is one of the most-anticipated trends of the new year and granite and quartz countertops can help create the ideal carbon-neutral space.

Storage solutions

We all need more space, especially in the kitchen, and innovative new solutions to an old problem are top of a list of expected changes.It is predicted that two thirds of the world’s population will be living in a city by 2050, prompting an increased demand for optimised storage.As a result, we’ll no longer see basic kitchen cabinets and drawers because the latest installations make the most of every inch of available space.Tailored solutions can be found to suit your needs using fold-out racks, plinth and sink drawers, corner carousels and more.

Kitchen islands

Kitchen islands are making a comeback, but with a twist - a double edition!We are beginning to see a shift towards larger kitchen areas in an open-plan space, which is why a double island is an attractive proposition.A pair of kitchen island units can together deliver the solution you are after.Whether they function separately, or are connected by a breakfast bar, islands finished with a natural stone worktop are the must-have installation this year.If you are looking to update your kitchen in 2020, Granite & Quartz Installations’ products are without doubt the best quality and on-trend option.
