When we think about kitchens, it’s hard not to imagine them as the heart of any home . A room where families gather for dinners and celebrations, it’s where recipes are made and shared and where we come together to enjoy each other’s company.
Interestingly, this room also happens to be one of the most expensive rooms in your house, so you want it done right. In this blog post, we’ll explore some top kitchen design trends for 2021 and see how you could enhance your existing designs.
Below are some kitchen design trends for 2021:
Stone Kitchen Countertops and Flooring
Stone, granite, and marble stand out as timeless materials for kitchens. In addition to being visually appealing, these materials typically provide more durability than ceramic or laminate counters.
For flooring, stone is an all-time classic material capable of withstanding the elements. With proper maintenance, it can maintain its beauty for years to come.
If you want to add some warmth to your kitchen, consider choosing warm colors like browns and oranges. These earthy tones create a cozy atmosphere in which you’ll want to relax or enjoy the company of friends.
On the other hand, white is a neutral color that goes with everything, but it also has the potential to be cold and stark. If you want to warm up your kitchen colors in 2021, consider blending in some white in the most natural way possible as some white can look like natural light coming through from an open window.
The touchless faucet is quickly becoming a fixture in kitchens around the world. This new faucet has sensors that detect when you are just about to touch it and then turn it on automatically. Some take it a step further, detecting when you’re just about finished with washing your hands and automatically turning off the water, which saves water as well as energy during a time of conservation. What’s more, these new touchless models have been designed to be compatible with both hot and cold water.
Increased Storage Spaces and Kitchen Islands
Following the post-pandemic era, there will be an increased need for storage spaces both inside and out of the kitchen as people look for ways to make their homes more organized and less cluttered. If you your kitchen is on a first floor, consider adding more shelving in the higher spaces. In some kitchens, it’s also helpful to create more space with cleverly designed cabinets that maximize organization.
Kitchen islands also serve as a great way to create more storage space, in addition providing an area where your family can cook, eat, do homework, or prepare salads together.
