kitchen remodeling trends for 2020

Houzz.com recently surveyed 2,600 individuals who completed a kitchen remodel in 2019 or planned to undertake one in the next three months.

Kitchen Remodeling Style Trends

A large majority of homeowners (85%) change the style of their kitchen when they decide to remodel. In 2019, transitional was most popular, selected by 21% of homeowners, followed by contemporary (16%), modern (15%) and traditional style (11%). Transitional cabinets, fixtures and other kitchen staples combine both traditional and contemporary styles. Transitional has been the most favored décor style for three years running, found the Houzz survey. Farmhouse kitchens are not as popular. Only 11% of homeowners opted for a farmhouse kitchen according to survey respondents. This was a decline from 14% in 2018 and 12% in 2017.

Cabinets are King

Cabinets are the number one choice for upgrading during a kitchen remodel. 94% of homeowners reported upgrading cabinets as part of their kitchen renovation with 68% opting to replace all cabinets.
