The Kitchen Cabinet Trends of 2020, According to Our Favorite Designers

On its best day, social media is a great tool for homeowners like me. It helps me gather inspiration, hone in on what styles I’m drawn to and introduces me to new products. On its worst day, however, its influence creates a sea of sameness. These last couple of years, for example, everyone’s Pinterest and Instagram feeds were full of farmhouse style, vintage vibes and mixed metals, and pretty soon so were our homes.

In 2020, it seems this “follow the leader” style of design is headed out the door. We asked some of our favorite designers and decorators to weigh in on what they think is going to be this year’s biggest kitchen cabinetry trend, and interestingly enough, not a single one had the same prediction. From rich and moody to DIY-happy, it seems we are heading into a year that’s all about expressing yourself. Here is what they think:

“In reaction to all the dark grey kitchens we have been seeing so much of in the last few years I think we will start to see more colorful cabinets in kitchens…subtle pastel hues paired with white and brass would make for a very modern and glamorous kitchen!” —Benjamin Brougham, Director of Interiors for Jonathan Adler

“For 2020, I am all about black cabinets. I love the drama they add to kitchen spaces. Paired with brass accents and natural materials like marbles, they really do make such a gorgeous statement.” – Alykhan Velji, Designer

“I think that plaster is having a real moment! I predict that this year we will be seeing it more and more in kitchen design as I think it has appeal in many different styles (from modern to minimal and rustic). As for colors, I expect to see a lot of earth tones (think taupe, terracotta, deep browns and ochre yellows), but ultimately, I think we are entering a moment where custom is the new luxury, so anything goes!” —Justina Blakeney, Designer and Artist

“We’re seeing many people opting for [mushroom] over white cabinetry, and we don’t blame them. It’s a warm neutral that still feels light and airy but adds some contrast to popular finishes like marble and subway tile.” —Catherine and Bryan Williamson, Interior Designers

“We are seeing a change in trend from all-white kitchens to much more natural wood tones. Taking advantage of knots and texture gives a modern look to more cabin-like materials.” —Austin Carrier and Alex Mutter-Rottmayer, Interior Designers

“Neutral colors like whites and ivories, oysters, and creams are going to continue to be big kitchen trends in 2020. My personal favorite cabinet look is a simple white oak front paired with white tiles and natural marbles. Finish off the look with brass or black metallic accents. It’s an elegant look that you won’t get tired of.” —Justin DiPiero, Interior Designer

“I think we’ll keep seeing more saturated cabinet colors (like deep terracotta & cerulean blue) paired with more modern cabinet designs, less decorative molding and [simpler], flat-front shapes with all-over textural accents like slats & ribs.” —Susie Brown, Decorator
