There’s nothing like coming home to a beautiful space, and this is particularly true when it comes to your kitchen. Given that this room is often referred to as the heart of the home, a modern kitchen that reflects the tastes and lifestyle of a family plays an integral role in its comfort and functionality.

There are a lot of exciting trends that are shaking up the kitchen landscape. Below are the six kitchen styles that are on our radar for 2020.


1. Matte Black Kitchen Cabinetry

A dazzling white kitchen will always be a classic. More modern kitchen designers, however, are choosing to either incorporate black cabinetry among the lighter cabinets or shelves, or they are choosing to use black entirely.

Sultry and dramatic, a black kitchen makes everything. From your tiling to glossy cabinetry, black kitchens pair exceptionally well with concrete benchtops and gunmetal or pewter hardware.


2. Integrated Appliances and Concealed Storage

The modern kitchen is all about creating a seamless appearance in a clutter free kitchen. This means no extra kitchen bins set on the floor, cleverly hidden dishwashers and refrigerators, and rangehoods that blend right in with the surrounding shelving and cabinetry.


3. Pops of Colour

Modern kitchen styles are all about being bold and outgoing. From choosing brightly coloured barstools to coloured cabinets, one modern kitchen style many will appreciate is the incorporation of a greater scope of colours.


4. Open Shelving of Various Materials

Open shelving creates a whole new dynamic in a modern kitchen. While traditional shelves were crafted from wood, 21st-century kitchens are incorporating shelving crafted from a variety of materials including timber laminates. . It’s a bold statement that is stamping out the minimalist kitchen design that was so popular in years past.


5. Bold Handle Choices – Or Lack Thereof

Kitchen designers have become quite creative when it comes to handles for drawers and cabinets. One of the hottest trends on the market is the handleless cabinetry available at Zesta Kitchens.

There are a lot of benefits that come with a handleless kitchen, including:

* Easier to move about a smaller kitchen space
* Creates a streamlined, smooth finish to any kitchen
* Easy to clean and open

6. Better Digital Technology

Not a surprising addition to this list, better digital technology can be found in many of today’s most modern kitchen styles. From Wi-Fi-enabled refrigerators to and espresso makers to intuitive wine refrigerators, technology is continuing to shape and redefine what it means to be a modern kitchen.
