What kind of kitchen updates are on the radar for 2020? Right now is the time to start thinking about how to get the newest look for your mobile home kitchen.
Why it’s so important to plan ahead
If you want your kitchen to stay up-to-date and stylish, it’s important to plan ahead. Maybe you’re going to get a head start and update your kitchen now, or maybe you plan to do so in 2020. Either way, it’s a good idea to start thinking about what you want in your home.
#1: Warm, mild neutral colors
Cleanliness, plenty of space, and a natural look are going to be big in 2020. Warmer neutral colors tend to enhance these qualities in a kitchen. White, gray, and beige are some good examples of the types of color palettes we’re talking about. White and light gray kitchens are an especially good choice: each color keeps the other one from becoming too dull and boring.
Additionally, a white and gray kitchen is such a versatile combination that it’s a good way to be on the safe side. It’s unlikely that mild neutral colors will ever be drastically unstylish. However, keep in mind that a monochromatic kitchen is declining in popularity. This means that a combination of two or more neutral colors is the best way to stay current.
#2: Black appliances
Black is a great color for modern kitchens as well. If you’re unsure about an all-black kitchen, however, you certainly don’t have to go all out. Black appliances or other furnishings provide a contemporary look that isn’t going away anytime soon. For example, black stainless steel appliances are a big hit right now. Not only are they a popular way to modernize a kitchen, but they’re also a way to get away from the original stainless steel look:
Black stainless steel isn’t the only way to go. Slate and black slate appliances have also made their mark on modern kitchens and will probably continue to do so.
Finally, black appliances or furnishings will work in a white or white and gray kitchen, meaning that the two modern kitchen updates will blend together ideally.
#3: Marble or quartz
Marble (or quartz that looks like marble) is most likely going to be a trendy material for many years to come. Countertops, kitchen islands, backsplashes…the possibilities are endless. White marble with soft gray veining is fairly mainstream, though black is popular as well. If you aren’t sure how well marble will hold up in your kitchen, a quartz look-alike should work just as well.
Here’s one quartz option as an example:
#4: LED lighting
LED lighting has been a trend for some time now, and it’s expected to grow in popularity for many years. Obviously, it’s both a practical and beautiful option for a 2020 kitchen. The question is, how will you present it in your mobile home? Some homeowners enjoy a more industrial look for their lighting choices, while others prefer a mid-century modern style. For example, this one is more industrial in nature:
Meanwhile, mid-century modern options like this one are also trendy:
#5: Organization/multipurpose ideas
2020 kitchens are all about practicality and organization. Gone are the days of wasted space and clutter – next year, multifunctional kitchen items are going to be at the top of the list. What does this level of organization look like? Here are a few ideas to inspire your design:
These aren’t necessarily design updates that people will see and admire when they walk into your kitchen, but they help eliminate outdated designs that you don’t want in your home. For example, pot racks are out of style right now. A retractable cabinet for your pots and pans is a good way to avoid needing a pot rack.
