Creative Design meets 2020 Kitchen Trends

JGS/IDC Tampa Designer Remodel

It’s not typical for Johanna G. Seldes/IDC to discuss design trends. As an ASID licensed interior designer with more than 25-years’ experience, Johanna G. Seldes/IDC uses learned skills, design creativity and product knowledge to ensure our clients’ home designs are one-of-a-kind originals. That said, we understand design trends are what influence and inspire many of our clients, so it’s important for Johanna G. Seldes/IDC to know what’s cooking in kitchen design.

With 2020 right around the corner, the new year comes a new selection of styles and trends. As the heart of the home, kitchen trends take the forefront in new design statements. This year, kitchen design shows are filled with new materials, patterns and colors. Allow us to turn the 2020 forecasts into a Johanna G. Seldes/IDC “show and tell” since we know how to tailor our clients’ needs, wants and desires to meet the latest developments in kitchen styling – and vice versa!

For some time now, we’ve seen kitchens getting lighter and brighter, with more streamlined looks. Statement backsplashes, as well as natural elements, give kitchens a uniquely modern feel. 2020 kitchens are all about layering materials. Whether it’s stone mix layered with softwood or sleek metal trim, a multifaceted look adds depth to your home. One example is this multi-stone backsplash combined with wood to match, contrasted by white countertopsgave a client’s kitchen texture without feeling clunky.

Backsplash focal point is taken to the next level with tiles and stone inlays that could rival artwork. Accent walls are no longer as necessary when you have an eye-catching backsplash, exemplified by a recent reno that used bold backsplash to balance the modern cabinetry. If you want to elevate your backsplash but are not ready to go that bold, a patterned look can make a statement.

The last trend reinvents the wheel a little bit. Getting rid of backsplash altogether opting for a solid look instead. Johanna G. Seldes/IDC used this trick in this kitchen by extending the countertop stone up the wall, making the kitchen feel cozy but still modern. Even without the countertops, a solid slab as backsplash creates a focal point, creating drama and depth, exemplified in the granite featured in this light and bright kitchen.

Daunted by the thought of the new trends or the exquisite photography of brand-new kitchens in glossy design magazines? Working closely with trusted vendors, Johanna G. Seldes/IDC makes it her business to know the latest materials, products, options, manufacturer recommendations and even installation techniques. Now with this knowledge and education, her know-how and creative skill, Johanna G. Seldes/IDC can create designs to the client’s tastes and on-trend. Your kitchen can be updated with the latest and greatest but still fit in with your style and the rest of the house. In the remodel of a 100-year old home, Johanna G. Seldes/IDC brought a dated kitchen back to life with beautiful additions that are in style but still match the home. The all-white chevron extended backsplash says present day while the hood vent maintains the 100-year history.

2020 design trends are contemporary and exciting. Although updated trends and styles are fun, Johanna G. Seldes/IDC makes sure you never go overboard. You don’t want the kitchen equivalent of shag carpet, which dates your kitchen to a specific place and time in design history. Johanna G. Seldes/IDC provides the most up-to-date design with timeless elements that work with your space and to your tastes.
