2. Various Lighting Pieces

One of the most difficult decisions you’ll face in remodeling your kitchen just became much easier.

Instead of choosing between only using fixtures such as recessed lights, pendant lights, or lamps throughout your kitchen, now is the time to use all of them! The trend nowadays is to use as much lighting as possible, however, you can obtain it. 

Especially now that LED lights are cutting down on your energy usage and monthly energy bill, you no longer have to suffer from dimly-lit corners of your kitchen.

Just make sure the lighting is a consistent tone and brightness on each fixture and your kitchen will seem as if it’s being lit by the angels from heaven.

3. Three-Toned Kitchen

One of the hottest design trends of 2020 has got to be the use of three-toned cabinetry in your kitchen.

While designers used to warn you of limiting your cabinetry colors to two, they’re now opening the opportunity to add a third! This gives your kitchen a level of spontaneity and liveliness that it wouldn’t otherwise have.

With the addition of the third color, each tone can then represent a corner of the all-important kitchen triangle for your layout. 

To your guests, this will give your kitchen more variety. In addition, it can help you organize your kitchen around the cabinetry that’s been designated for the sink, the fridge, and the stove respectively.

4. Give it a “Brass” Nature

One type of metal that isn’t being used enough in kitchens these days is brass. With that being said, it’s stock is rising rapidly. Now’s the perfect time to beat everyone else to the punch!

Using brass on complimentary pieces in your kitchen will give it a different look that your friends and family will admire. 

For example, using it for things like cabinet handles, light fixtures, sink faucets, and pantry knobs or handles serve as the cherry on top for your kitchen’s tone.

The fun doesn’t stop there, as there are several brass finishes to choose from. Consider options such as antique brass, unfinished brass, and polished brass to tie the whole kitchen together.

5. Make the Appliances Pop!

Perhaps you want the appliances that you place in your kitchen to do the talking for your entire food gallery.


This is the perfect option for those of you that adore white cabinetry and countertops, but also have a desire to make your kitchen stand out.

If that’s the case, why not go for those all-white cabinets, a neutral backsplash, white marble countertops, and make your appliances the lively-colored pieces?

Many appliance manufacturers make appliances in colors you wouldn’t expect them in. Sometimes, those weird-colored models are cheaper than their neutral-colored counterparts. 

Now, you can finally have that mint-colored, old-timey fridge that you always wanted and have it mesh well with the white cabinets of your dreams!

In the end, buying appliances that are all in different colors will tie the entire room together.

Maybe you’re looking for a way to bring all your different design ideas such as cabinetry, appliances, layout, and lighting tie all together and are struggling to find a way to make it all fit.
