Kitchens – a timeless design that somehow seems to change pretty dramatically year-to-year.

Every time we turn around, it feels like some interior designer has “bold and innovative” new ideas for your kitchen that, frankly, just don’t work in the real world. Maybe the colors are too weird, maybe it requires too much remodeling, maybe it just sacrifices too much functionality for too little form.

Whatever the case may be, it seems like a lot of “hot new kitchen trends” tend to not be too helpful for everyday folk like us. That’s why we’ve compiled this short list of kitchen storage trends we’ve seen throughout the year that you might actually find a little more useful than normal:


Helpful Kitchen Design Ideas for 2020

Increased Wine Storage

Due to…a variety of factors, let’s say, it seemed like everyone was drinking a lot more wine than normal in 2020. Accordingly, a lot of people found themselves having to store more wine in the kitchen than normal, which has led to people finding new ways to safely keep it all around.

While a lot of wine drinkers would content themselves with keeping a few favorite bottles on the counter, or maybe over on the bar cart with the rest of the liquor, many kitchens have found themselves bringing in more wine storage to stash all their favorite vintages. This can take many forms, including standalone wine racks, built-in wine cabinets, or even wire wine storage mounted on the wall or inside an empty pantry for easier access.


Kitchen Islands: Your Jack-Of-All-Trades

Kitchen islands have become an even more common sight in kitchens these days thanks to their versatility. Once thought of as just an add-on piece, kitchen islands have become more prominent and useful over the last year or so, thanks to its ability to add storage to areas that might need it the most. This can be particularly helpful for more modern kitchens that may have cut back on the cabinet or pantry space for the sake of ‘aesthetics’.


The Farmhouse Look

“Farmhouse”, “cottagecore”, whatever you want to call it, people have really gotten into a more rustic aesthetic lately. Luckily, it’s very easy to combine this aesthetic with some practical storage options for your kitchen! By hanging up some wooden wall shelves or metal wall shelves (the darker the metal, the better) you can create a more old-fashioned, ‘open’ look for your kitchen without sacrificing the sort of storage you might’ve gotten with a more traditional kitchen cabinet.


Usable Backsplashes

Backsplashes have been all the rage lately in kitchens, to add a little pop of color in an area that doesn’t typically get a lot of design love. Creating a backsplash behind your sink or stove also creates a great opportunity for adding more durable storage solutions, like wire kitchen shelving, to help maximize your use of the space and keep your needed kitchen implements close at hand.

Hopefully, these tips can help you make the most of your kitchen space and enjoy a new, refreshed look all at once!
