Earlier this year, we shared 8 Kitchen and Bath Features that Should be on Your Radar in 2020, including compact appliances, pops of color, organic materials, connectivity, bidets, touchless faucets and sanitation cycles. Read the full story here.

As we continue to adapt to a rapidly changing environment that is causing us to spend more time within our homes, it is important to incorporate features that maximize functionality and improve our lifestyles.

While all of these trends are proving to be very popular this year—bidets, touchless faucets, and sanitation cycles on our dishwashers and washing machines are particularly sought after right now as we focus on health and cleanliness inside our homes.

In addition to these 8 trends, here are 5 more kitchen and bath features that should be on your radar this year.

Kitchen Trends:

Sous Vide Cookers and Steam Ovens

Sous vide cookers and steam ovens have been used in restaurants for many years, and are now becoming a popular addition to custom home kitchens. For sous vide cooking, a sealing system marinates your food, which is then heated in a sous vide cooker to maintain the precise temperature until the meal is ready to serve. Steam ovens provide heat without sacrificing moisture or flavor, and many include combination cooking—using steam and convection cooking—to offer the best of both worlds.

Coffee/Espresso Systems

Coffee and espresso systems allow you to become your own barista. With a built-in or countertop unit, you can prepare your favorite coffee drinks in the comfort of your own home.

Bath Trends:

Smart Technology 

Transform your bath into a personalized day spa with smart showers or voice-activated features that control the lights and temperature. In-floor radiant heating is also a must-have for baths in mountain homes or on cold, wintery days.

Floating Vanities

Floating vanities provide a sleek and modern touch to your bath, while supplying much-needed storage and style. As they are anchored to the wall and do not extend to the floor, floating vanities create the illusion of more space in your room.

Vintage Style Materials

Mixed metals, matte black, gold and wood accents are becoming increasingly popular in bath designs. These materials provide a more vintage style for one of the most used rooms in your home.
