Kitchen Interior Design Trends 2020

It is estimated that we spend an average of six hours a week cooking and preparing food in our kitchens, not to mention the time spent entertaining here too. Therefore, making sure the area is well lit will help to make practical tasks easier, as well as creating the right atmosphere for when you have guests over. In this blog, we’ll look at the top kitchen trends for 2020, inspiring you to renovate this year!

The Practicality Of Lighting In A Kitchen

Consider each area in the kitchen as it will require different amounts of light. Food preparation zones and above the hob will require task lighting, whereas other areas, such as the dining area will call for mood and accent lighting.

Go Dramatically Dark

With searches for dark kitchens up 90% the last few years, it’s a trend expected to continue. A darker tone can completely transform the dynamics in the room, adding depth and character.

If your kitchen is on the smaller side, it’s advised to incorporate only fractions of dark colours as darker tones have the ability to make a space look and feel smaller.


Whether you opt for navy, black or grey, make your space work for you. Metallic accents work brilliantly with darker tones. Copper and brass look especially good, contrasting pleasingly with darker tones. We love this barn conversion below which pairs darker walls with a brass splashback and a trio of our Brass Brooklyn Dome lights!

Add A Pop Of Colour

Inject a splash of colour into your kitchen this year. Usually, we choose colours which are currently on-trend, but while this should influence us to some extent, it’s also vital to select a colour which works for you long term.

Whether you decide to incorporate colours on the cabinets, through appliances or within your lighting choices, incorporate colour wherever you see fit!

Go Funky With Patterns

Patterns are a great way to inject a bit of fun into your interiors, whether you opt for a patterned splashback or funky flooring, patterns are the perfect way to add character.

Splashbacks are useful for protecting walls from getting ruined, but now they’re becoming a statement piece and patterns are the perfect way to create a stand out interior. Patterned splashbacks and warmer toned metals such as copper and brass are becoming increasingly popular, and a look we’re bound to see more of going forward.

Make A Statement

Kitchen lighting is usually left as an afterthought, whereas, it should be one of the key aspects to be thought about in the planning stage. Lighting has the ability to transform a room; you’ll need the correct lighting for cooking and preparing food, while also requiring soft lighting for entertaining.


Shake It Up With The Shaker Style

Shaker style kitchens are all about having a clutter-free and logical interior; this kitchen trend works perfectly with sleek, modern designs as well as classic, contemporary themes.

The idea is for these style kitchens to be of contemporary colours so to keep the kitchen sleek and stylish. Many who opt for this style tend to place a kitchen island in the centre of their room, and a trio of industrial pendants look seamless placed above!

Channel The Vintage Vibe

Raw materials are the perfect way to create the vintage vibe longed after. Authentic materials such as wood, stone and brick are the idyllic way to create a vintage-inspired interior and give us a nostalgic feeling.

Vintage kitchen interiors can be created in a number of ways - from exposed brick walls to opting for industrial stools and vibrant splashes of colour, depending on the type of twist you envision will rely on your finishing touches. Our vintage lighting options are uniquely handcrafted with raw materials and match perfectly with all vintage-style interiors.

Opt For Pastels

In recent years pastels have been making their way into every room of the home. The tones are soft, soothing and help to create a relaxing space, and as we spend more time in the kitchen, they’re ideal for this space.

Whether you decide on a centrepiece such as a baby blue kitchen island, lilac kitchen appliances or baby pink kitchen tiles, pastel shades have the ability to stop your guests in their tracks!

Get Techy

Technology for the year ahead is likely to see more and more of us embracing the Smart Home concept. Connectivity is being incorporated into products all around the kitchen, from light bulbs to coffee brewers, from thermostats to ovens. 

Connected products, which were once only a dream, are fast becoming a reality. You can already tell your Smart Speaker to turn on the light at a specific percentage and in a colour of your choosing.

Think About Art

One of the least likely rooms you think art is placed, artwork has the ability to add a piece of your personality to your kitchen. Whether you opt for a gallery wall or a place unique pieces on open shelves, art not only adds a bit of colour, but it adds character.

Here at Industville, we are advocates of unique, handcrafted artwork, and showcase a bunch of talented artists work on the walls of our showroom.

Each year brings a bundle of new trends, but what is crucial is to find a style that works for you. Our range of lights are incredibly versatile, working with country cottage styles as well as modern, contemporary designs to create the ideal atmosphere.

Lighting has the ability to transform a room; you’ll need the correct lighting for cooking and preparing food, while also requiring soft lighting for entertaining.

Layer Your Lighting

Rather than a single light, how about clustering lights together to create a statement ceiling? Whether you opt for a trio of pendants or our Brooklyn 5 Wire Pendant, uniquely handcrafted industrial lights are the perfect way to create an on-trend kitchen interior.
