New trends to design your kitchen

 Mar 24, 2021


A beautiful kitchen design is a combination of a variety of elements, including appliances, cabinets, layouts, worktops, and others. In the previous year, a living kitchen, which combined functionality, technology, and aesthetics, was trending. But with the year 2021, the humble kitchen is taking a front seat.

From a place to preparing meals to washing dirty dishes, the kitchen has evolved into a social venue where people socialize. The pandemic has seen our kitchen transforming into an office, classroom, restaurant, and more.

In 2021, it is expected that the most desirable kitchen designs will aim at making life easier by combining purpose, personality, and designs, reflecting your personal taste, character, and lifestyle.

Worried about the expenses of modeling a new kitchen? You can always remodel your existing design, with a burst of creativity and personal style.

Here are the new kitchen design trends to look out for in 2021:

1. Furniture

The trend of painted furniture is reinventing the appearance of the kitchen. Painted furniture is expected to offer a brand new lease of life to your kitchen cabinets. Adding a lustrous and modern touch to the traditional look of your kitchen, pairing the painted furniture with authentic raw materials will create a durable, classy kitchen, with a contemporary finish.

If you are looking to renovate your kitchen, then hand-painting your furniture would be an inexpensive way to go about it, without the expense of having to replace the furniture.

2. Playing it smart

There is no place on earth that technology has not entered yet. Today, smart technology is part of most kitchens not just in the form of fancy gadgets or appliances, but integrated into every appliance and these kitchens are referred to as smart kitchens.

If you’re planning to remodel your kitchen, then sensors, smart gadgets, and others can be added as you desire. Motion sense-equipped kitchen faucets, which belong to the category of easy add-ons, are capable of sensing the motion of hands.

Imagine if your coffee-maker has been programmed to sense when you wake up and get your coffee ready accordingly. How about a refrigerator that can alert you when you are running low on your grocery items? Or how about getting a lighting system, which will allow you to control all your lights with the click of a button from a smartphone or tablet.

These days, homeowners are more open to experimenting with novel technologies. So, technology-integrated kitchens will become one of the trends in 2021.

3. Adding a natural touch to your kitchen

Experts believe that natural wood will re-emerge as a cabinetry trend in 2021. Earlier, homeowners despised the idea of choosing brown wooden cabinets. But, now, people are returning to the basics to offer a natural look to their kitchens.

If you despise giving a wooden touch to your kitchen, consider a wooden island or use it for the lower cabinets.

4. Pantry ideas

Pantry cupboards have become an integral part of modern kitchens. These pantry cupboards are preferred over wall cupboards as they help to keep food items in a more organized way after shopping.

The larder’s storage capacity frees up walls, making room for artwork or a more relaxed environment.

5. Hardwood flooring

Hardwood flooring is the first thing that comes to mind when we think of kitchen flooring. In 2021, it looks like ceramic flooring has become a more popular choice. Now, you can find ceramic flooring in a range of colors, designs, and styles to suit your personal style.

When it comes to the size, you can choose single plank tiles or have custom cut tiles for your kitchen.

6. Green is the color of 2021

This year, green is the color. We can expect sage greens to make a way back to defining contemporary kitchens. More traditional tones, such as forest green, will define classic kitchen schemes. Green is the color of comfort, connecting to nature, benefitting your health and wellness.

7. Neutrals

In 2021, calming neutrals, such as grey, ivory, and white, are not going anywhere. When tonal colors are paired with tactile materials, like wood or wicker, it is expected to offer a warming space. We can expect to see more of a calming trend of muted and earthly colors to offer a relaxing space.

8. Compact kitchen designs

If space is at a premium, compact kitchens are an ideal choice. Go for a minimum clutter and maximum efficiency kitchen design. When a kitchen has to be designed in a smaller space, the layout has to be carefully considered such that every inch is well-utilized.

You can always include an island or breakfast bar.

9. Sustainable kitchen

One of the concerns of any homeowner is eco-credentials. We are all increasingly focusing on sustainability and quality materials for our homes. Implementing environment-friendly materials in interior design is a growing trend in modern kitchens.

We hope that these new trends in kitchen will serve as ideas for renovating your kitchen or building a new kitchen.
