Because the world has experienced events that have caused uncertainty and unrest, we need comfort colors just like we need comfort foods.
In 2020, many of us spent more time at home than we ever did before. The ways we cook, entertain, work, and relax changed significantly. As we move into 2021, the look and function of kitchens are changing as well.
According to experts, cleanliness and hygiene will be a top priority in the kitchen designs of 2021. Flexibility for multiple users and tasks will remain an important function. Here are some of the popular kitchen trends to consider for your kitchen design or remodel this year!
A Change in Colors
While white remains a popular kitchen color scheme, warmer colors will soon replace cool tones. Warm beige, accented by shades of aqua and orange, are set to warm up kitchens this year. These colors elicit feelings of comfort and compassion. Because the world has experienced events that have caused uncertainty and unrest, we need comfort colors just like we need comfort foods. These warm hues go well with natural wood tones, gold textures, greenery, and woven textures.
Natural, Organic Style
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), natural, organic styles have soared into the top three kitchen design styles for 2021. This style still relies on the same distinct lines found in transitional and contemporary kitchens but built on natural materials’ textures and warmth.
Add a New Faucet
Our heightened hygiene awareness extends into our home. Therefore, touchless faucets are growing in demand for hands-free functionality in our kitchens. Installing a motion-control faucet is a quick and easy kitchen update. Not only is this a more hygienic option, but it can also assist you to more productive in the kitchen too. Selecting a matte or brushed finish will evoke a richer, warmer feel than traditional stainless steel.
Instead of hiding the ventilation system, kitchens can turn to an open, decorative range hood as a focal point. However, it doesn’t need to be flashy to stand out. The emphasis should be on the types of materials used on the range hoods. Natural materials and wood tones or a hood that extends beyond the cabinetry profile can make it a statement piece.
Added Storage Space
2020 not only changed when and what we cook but also created the need for more utensils, appliances, and groceries. Basically, we need more space! Depending on your needs and space you’re working with, larger pantries and freezers are two areas to consider. Our kitchens are working harder, and these two storage areas can help accommodate our new needs.
Take the Inside Outdoors
In 2020 many of us were home a lot! And 2021 doesn’t look like it will be much different. One of the key designs to kitchens in 2021 is bringing the inside outdoors. These designs concentrate on visual and physical connections to the outdoors. Larger windows, bifold doors, and seating that is closer to these features are changes that will be a must as we move forward during these uncertain times.
