Your kitchen is the heart of your home; it should be a warm, inviting space that you love. Kitchens have come a long way from vast spaces filled with countertops and cabinets to the modern, customized designs we have today. Current designs offer the perfect combination of style, aesthetics, simplicity and space-saving options (like custom cabinetry).
Following current trends, Canadians allocate a portion of their annual budgets to home renovation projects. While this is true in all areas across the country, it is even more prevalent in large cities like Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto.
Kitchen renovations are the most popular type of renovation project in Canada. With 2019 coming to a close, it makes us think about modern kitchens in Toronto as well as the trends we will see in 2020.
Are you looking ahead and wondering what’s in store?
White, cream and beige were some of the most popular colors that are typically associated with kitchen interior. These were often combined with pastel colours like mauve and blue.
However, the newest modern kitchens in Toronto have a totally different look; they buck the previous pastel trends in favour of statement-setting black. From all-black palettes in the kitchens to matte black countertops, it looks like black will be the most popular colour for modern kitchens in 2020.
We affectionately refer to kitchen cabinetry as the, “crown jewel that brings everything together.” Kitchen cabinets range from intricate and ornate to clean and simple designs.
Most Canadian homeowners are choosing space-saving methods like custom cabinetry in order to have functional, efficient storage areas that fit beautifully in their kitchens. Custom kitchen cabinets can impact the overall functionality as well as the look and feel of your kitchen. A great example of this is open shelving. It creates a distinctive, cutting-edge style while being put to work as a storage solution. .
There was a time when many homeowners were highly satisfied with the trendiest colour in their kitchen, even if the style, design and furnishings looked very similar to other kitchens in their neighborhood, city or favourite magazine. . Times have changed! Today, the trend is bold statements using customized colour accents to add a unique personality to spaces. For instance, when choosing custom cabinets, most people prefer neutral and pastel colors like yellow and grey. However, there are also people who prefer darker colours like navy blue and black.
With so much variation in current trends, and a move toward injecting personality into homes, it is hard to predict what the ‘it” colour will be for modern kitchens in 2020!
