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.
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.
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 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.
