Summer is upon us and many of us may be looking at tackling larger home renovation projects. Kitchens are one of the top and most expensive rooms to renovate. Let us inspire you in your remodeling project with these nine 2021 trends in kitchen design.
1. Stand Out Kitchen Islands
People are going bold with the kitchen islands and painting or staining them a different color. Especially when combined with white perimeter cabinets, it really makes your island pop.
2. Brightly Colored Cabinets
With people stuck inside for such a long period of time people are getting fed up with the same old style. People are gravitating towards eye-catching colored cabinets to bring a freshness into the space.
3. Wallpaper In the Kitchen
Over the past several years wallpaper, in general, has been making a comeback. But it hasn’t been until recently that we’ve seen it being incorporated into the kitchen design. With new, updated designs you can really express your style! Manufacturers have even developed peel and stick options that are much easier to install and remove.
4. Using Natural Wood Tones
One popular trend we’ve seen this year is the desire to bring the outside in and the best way to do that is to bring natural wood tones into your design. You can overhaul your kitchen using stained wood in order to showcase beautiful wood grain, or change out your countertop to butcherblock, or bring in wooden accents in shelving and other accents.
5. The Open Concept
Over the years more people are gravitating to an open living/dining/kitchen concept. As we’ve been prevented from doing large gatherings, people are missing that aspect which is translating to creating spaces that are perfect for entertaining.
6. Pop of Color with Appliances
If you don’t want to commit to going bold with your cabinets, consider bringing a pop of color with your appliances. Many manufactures are offering fun, bold color options such as red, green, blue, and yellow.
7. Two-Tone Cabinets
Add more dimension and visual interest by combining two finishes into your kitchen design. The most common layout is darker cabinets on the bottom cabinets and lighter or white cabinets on the top.
8. Pop of Color with Accents
Not wanting to do a complete overhaul with color? Consider bringing in little pops of color in displayed dishware or accent pieces. This is especially easy if you have open shelving, but you can also put colorful storage containers on your counter.
9. Dark Floors
We are noticing that people are gravitating to using darker tones in their flooring, which really makes white cabinets or lightly colored walls really pop!
