Kitchen islands are a major upgrade, and more homeowners than not are opting for this with their 2020 remodel. Large, or even supersized, islands in contrasting colors are widely popular (at least where they fit), along with oversized pulls as a feature fixture.

Some remodelers are opting for blue, gray and green in the kitchen; however, white shaker style cabinets continue to be the most popular choice in 2020.
Another top pick in 2020 is open shelving. Instead of upper cabinets wrapping the entire length of the countertop, we’re seeing open shelves pop into the mix. This works well in transitional, farmhouse, coastal… you name it. It adds variety and breaks up the somewhat generic feel of just cabinets.

When it comes to countertops, quartz reigns supreme and there’s little wonder. Quartz is durable and resistant to heat, easy to clean, and just as beautiful as granite, often at a more reasonable price point. In 2020, look for a honed (matte) finish with defined veining. Also popular this year: concrete.

There are thousands upon thousands of options when it comes to choosing a tile for a kitchen backsplash. In 2020, it’s likely that subway tile will still dominate; however, remodelers are opting for glass tile in fresh colors like seafoam and icy grey as opposed to traditional white. Larger, longer subway tile is also gaining steam.
Another huge backsplash trend in 2020 is the feature wall. Instead of limiting backsplash to the space between the countertop and upper cabinets, designers and homeowners are taking it all the way up to the ceiling, either behind a range hood or on a window wall featuring open shelving.

Oversized pulls are an emerging trend (especially in larger kitchens). We also expect to see mixed metals continue in popularity. Weathered finishes, perfect for that trending transitional style, as well as matte black and champagne gold hardware on all on the rise this year.

Freestanding tubs give an air of elegance like the traditional tub/shower combo never could. When it’s time to wind down with a bath bomb and some bubbly, nothing compares to a gorgeous soaking tub. Rising in popularity in 2020, stand-alone tubs come in a variety of shapes and sizes perfect for any bathroom refresh.
Floating vanities are very popular in larger remodels, but what about those half baths with quite literally half the space of the master? Pedestal sinks are a trendy option for smaller spaces. These sinks open up floor space, creating the illusion of a larger room. Pedestal sinks come in a variety of styles to meet the aesthetic of any newly designed powder room.
Bathrooms can be a fun space to play with various tile textures and patterns. Marble is a big player in 2020 bathroom trends, as are textured tiles in geometric shapes. We’re also loving cement tiles in blue, green, and gray this season. Another popular choice is hexagonal tile, in white or black with a matte finish.

You’ve picked out the perfect floating vanity and lighted mirror for the master bath. Now all that’s left is finding the right hardware and faucet/fixtures to complete the look. Complementing hardware styles include darker matte metals, brass knobs, and brushed nickel finishes. Mixing metals is still in for 2020 as well so feel free to get funky and mix it up!
