Keep Your Kitchen On Trend In 2020

Looking to update your kitchen? Want to keep it looking stylish and on trend in 2020? Then you may want to take a browse of our stylish kitchen ideas for 2020. Here you’ll find the very latest interior design trends guaranteed to take your kitchen space to the next level this year and beyond.



For years it’s been about the matchy-matchy but in 2020, matchy-matchy is taking a definite back seat and two-tone is taking over. The trend for combining two different colours of cabinetry is set to become hugely popular as it adds an incredible aesthetic, changing the entire look and feel of the room. Consider deep dark units with contrasting brighter cabinets up high.


When it comes to the kitchen, it’s never short on clutter. From utensils to appliances, mugs to dishes; having the right storage will mean you finding everything you need when you need it and also having adequate storage for your specific ‘things’. Whether its your dream larder or the perfect utensil draw you’re after, bespoke kitchen design can make it happen and take your kitchen to the next level in 2020.

Blue Hues

Brooding blue hues are set to make a big impact with different shades of navy becoming a huge trend in 2020. This colour isn’t only sophisticated, it’s dramatic too. Pair with light worktops and silver features throughout and you’ve got a kitchen guaranteed to wow.


Ladders are on the up, especially for those wanting a slightly more traditional looking kitchen. If you have particularly high ceilings or simply want the look, ladders are a great addition in 2020.

Statement Fixtures

No kitchen would be complete without a real statement feature and one way to really make an impact is with the use of bold taps. Think stunning rose gold taps to really stand out or even eye catching handles on cabinetry.

Dining Islands

Islands aren’t limited to simple breakfast bars, they can also be incorporated into great dining spaces with the right worktop extension and stools. If you have the space, consider extra inbuilt seating at your island for the perfect dining island.


Concealed Appliances

Minimalism is without doubt making a big statement this year. Instead of having worktop space covered in appliances, it’s about having them hidden. Think coffee machines, microwaves, in fact any gadget or tech appliance you have that would usually be on show, we recommend having them hidden away for the ultimate ‘hidden station’. Give yourself easy access without cluttering the kitchen and drawing eyes away from your stunning cabinetry and worktops.

Statement Floors

When we talk about statement flooring, we mean flooring that’s going to do the talking. Flooring that makes an impact when you walk into a room. If you want statement flooring however, it’s important to remember to keep everything else minimalistic. The floor is there to make the statement, not the cabinetry and everything else in-between else well.

Absolutely love our new Kitchen! Matter helped us create our dream kitchen and showed us designs we didn't know were possible. I recommend their services to everyone!

Chantal Davey

Amazing service and fast turn around. We had our designs over to us within weeks and the whole build was done in a couple of months. They worked well with our selected tradesman and their maintance plan is outstanding. 100% recommend.

Caleb Vickers

Our kitchen was small and awkward, but Matter design gave us a fabulous layout and really made the kitchen space feel very open! Can't recommend them enough!

Soraya Wiggins

The bedroom and bathroom design supplied by Matter was out of this world! Feels so open and modern, but also very cosy. Really makes use of all the space. Thank you Matter very much.
