Color Trends for 2020 to Make Kitchens, Bathrooms Pop

Markraft designer Rachel Booth loves being able to see where a space starts out and working through the process to get it to its potential. Making clients truly happy with their spaces really does change the way they live and work in their homes, she said. Involved in both remodels and new construction design projects at Markraft, Rachel has seen some interesting trends — especially in colors — this past year and is already keen on coming trends for 2020.

Outdoor living spaces will continue to grow as more people want to transition and entertain with comfort in their outdoor spaces. There are a handful of outdoor cabinetry lines now that can offer outdoor cabinetry, so this gives Markraft customers some flexibility based on their budget, wants and needs.

Indoors, kitchens and baths are the focal point. White and gray continue to be the most popular colors people are using, by a landslide. Both are classic neutral colors that can accommodate and blend with almost every color throughout a home. “There is so much flexibility in the range of gray that it can lend itself to the warmer or cooler tones,” Rachel said.

This past year blue has become a very popular color in cabinetry design, especially in a lot of island designs giving kitchens an extra “pop.” Other bold colors like black have been joining blue in secondary bathrooms, used in small doses to allow flooring and walls remain a nice neutral color while grounding the cabinetry.

Blue will continue to be a big color in 2020, along with some green tones coming into cabinet lines. Walnut will continue in popularity in cabinetry design thanks to its rich color and varied wood grains. In cabinet hardware, knobs and pulls, Rachel is seeing a huge movement towards matte black and champagne gold finishes. “What’s great is the plumbing industry is seeing this and is adding matte black and champagne gold to their finish offerings too. This way both hardware and plumbing fixtures can match,” she explained.
