Top Kitchen Colors for 2020

When it comes to kitchen remodeling and design, one of the most important decisions you must take is the choice of colors. The right palette can achieve the desired effects of spaciousness, homeliness and neatness. Here is a look at some of the top kitchen colors that are hot and trending this year. With a bit of creativity, you can’t go wrong with these shades.

Natural Wood

Natural wood shades have made a roaring comeback in interior décor in the past few years. This is particularly true for kitchen cabinetry where the light tones of natural wood add the perfect hint of the organic and the raw. You can use natural wood shade for the entire cabinetry remodel, the island and even the flooring. The best results are achieved when natural wood shades are contrasted with a rustic interior kitchen design, such as when used against a charcoal brick wall.

Shades of Green

Green is the ever-green color for kitchen décor. As we enter 2020, there’s a notable trend of using the deeper, darker and more toned-down shades of green for kitchen cabinetry and island in particular. The great thing about shades of green is that they are incredibly versatile, so that you can use them with a variety of complementary décor shades. White, natural wood, beige and grey are some of the shades that go great when contrasted with green.

Shades of Blue

Like green, blue is another color that has remained ever popular in kitchen décor. Typically, blue is more commonly used in kitchen designs that incorporate some of the classical features. So if you want a hint of the traditional or the classic in your kitchen, you may want to consider adding a dash of the blues to your kitchen. Blue is also a very versatile shade. Depending on the strength of the blue that you use, you can pair it with both light shades and the darker ones.


Beige is one of the stand-out warm neutrals for use in kitchen remodel and décor. It is among the top kitchen colors of 2020 for a variety of reasons. It’s very versatile, doesn’t dirty easily, gels in well with virtually any other shade, and works great for cabinetry, furniture, island, walls and virtually any other kitchen features. With different lighting options, you can even give the beige color in your kitchen a warmer or more neutral tint. Beige can also be used with a variety of materials including marble, stone and wood.

Dark Tones

The use of dark tones in kitchen décor has seen a decline recently but darker shades still remain a key part of the kitchen palette. When used extensively, darker shades tend to make a space look smaller. So homeowners typically prefer them when they have a sizable kitchen space. You can also use the darker tones in chunks and pieces, for instance to line the island or for the furniture in the kitchen.

Ultimately, the choice of color for the walls, ceiling, flooring, cabinetry, island, furniture and other features of your kitchen directly affects its finish and appeal. If you are not sure on how to make the best color choices, it is best to consult a professional.
