When selling your house it’s important to get the highest offer you possibly can. That might mean making a few upgrades to keep with the trends. As the kitchen is the heart of every home, we wanted to focus on the top trends of 2020 so you can be ahead of the curve in selling your home this year.
Top Kitchen Trends of 2020
We’ve provided a list of trends to consider when upgrading your kitchen before trying to sell. You’d be surprised at how much the kitchen can influence the buyers opinion of the house in general, so it’s important to be informed of what’s in and what’s out.
From having a pop of color on the ceiling, to having a range of colors throughout your kitchen, adding color in any way can add some life that your kitchen has been craving. Try painting the ceiling with a fun color while keeping the rest of the color scheme neutral.
A new trend this year is the idea of open shelving. Get rid of bulky cabinetry and leave your gorgeous kitchenware to be shown off and not hidden away. Following the open concept idea is to extend that to the whole kitchen. Knock down the walls that keep your kitchen hidden away and stifled. Have the kitchen flow naturally into the living or dining areas. The added light and space in the kitchen can really change how you feel about the house overall.
It may not come as a surprise to you that people are leaning toward things more natural and eco-friendly these days, this includes updates to the home. Try adding natural wood tones for more warmth.
Adding a distinctive feature that the whole room centers around is key in designing a great kitchen. You can accomplish this fairly simply by adding metal, try mix-and-matching your metals! If you decide to go with an open concept, try making your oven hood distinctive by adding brass or copper covering to really make it pop.
When choosing a countertop, you may think you have to decide between what looks nice and what’s affordable. Try quartz countertop, it’s affordable, low maintenance and less prone to stains! Exactly what a homeowner is looking for.
Try a unique kitchen tile with terra-cotta, brick or cement pieces. Of course there’s always a classic wood floor or tile, but try a new pattern out to create an eye-catching design. Create a statement floor to really make your kitchen pop.
In general, vintage is making a real comeback. Like having a plate rack which allows you to display your dishware, or having a larder instead of a pantry for your dry goods. Add reclaimed wood to your decor to increase the vintage look.
While it continues to be a classic for kitchen decor themes, try sprucing it up with an accent of some kind. For instance, a splash of color or interesting metal fixtures throughout. Turn the classic into something unique and eye catching. The current trend in metal is moving from silver to warmer tones of gold and copper.
