Creating A Beautiful Home and Garden

When I purchased a home a few years ago, I had no idea what kind of workload I would be faced with. In addition to trying to figure out how to keep the place clean, I was also left with the challenge of tidying up the yard and keeping things trimmed. It was a little overwhelming, but I knew that I could do it with a little hard work and dedication. I started reading a lot of books and blogs about creating gorgeous things for your home and yard, and it was a great creative outlet. This blog is all about exciting, fun ways to make your home and yard even more beautiful.

Kitchen Trends For 2020: Implement These In Your Remodel

by Alyssa Perkins

The year 2020 is almost here. If you are planning to remodel your kitchen this upcoming year, then you need to take current trends into account. Here are a few recent kitchen trends to consider implementing as you remodel.

Navy Blue

Subdued tones have been stylish in the kitchen for years, but in 2020, navy blue is becoming the color of choice. You can choose navy cabinet doors, or just incorporate some navy accents in your tile backsplash. One great thing about navy is that it coordinates with so many other colors. You can pair it with red for a really bold look, or with gray and white for a quieter appearance. Navy even looks great with beige and green.

Stone Slab Backsplashes

Tile backsplashes have been popular for decades, and they are still a good choice in 2020. However, stone slab backsplashes are becoming more and more popular. These are cut from a single slab of granite or marble. Usually, a slab with a lot of unique veins is used so that it really calls attention to itself. Sometimes the backsplash is the same tone as the countertop itself, and other times, the designer uses a different stone to create contrast.

Twin Islands

It is becoming common to include not one, but two islands in the kitchen. The two islands are placed next to each other, and they are usually identical. Including two islands rather than one makes it easier to have two people cooking in the kitchen at once. You can each have your own space so you can work without interfering with each other.

Colored Appliances

For years, it was conventional to use brighter colors on the walls and cabinets, but choose appliances in a neutral black, white, or stainless steel. However, in 2020, appliance companies are beginning to make colored appliances. You can now do the opposite of what is conventional — paint your walls a neutral tone, and add some blue, red, or green with a colored appliance.

Open Shelving

Gone are the days when it was cool to hide everything inside your cabinets. Open shelves are now very popular. You can display some of your cookware, dinnerware, or mugs on these shelves, turning them into elements of your decor. You can still include some closed cabinets in your design, but place some shelves in strategic locations like next to the oven and the sink.
