Best Home and Kitchen Trends 2021

It’s no secret that 2020 has increased the importance of home like never before. Working from home has become the norm and having classes at the kitchen table with kids is now routine. The year ahead may look brighter at the moment, but the need for home comfort won’t be fading anytime soon.

Every year brings a new mix of home design trends to make your space its most stylish and 2021 will be no different. So with that in mind, whether you have a sleek, modern kitchen or small space that needs updating, here are the top home and kitchen design trends to look for in 2021 and consider for your space.

Add Some Color to your Cabinetry

Although traditional all-white kitchens remain popular amongst homeowners, adding bold colors to cabinetry is a trend we see increasing this year. Green has become a popular color, and that’s no exception for cabinets as Nashville Interior Designer Katie Sneed proves in this laundry room makeover! Pairing white quartz countertops installed by our team with bold green cabinets completely changed the look of the space.

Two-toned kitchen cabinets are also a really easy way to create instant interest and this dynamic trend is here to stay. Trade in restrained color schemes like white-on-white for bold contrasts of black and gray, variations of blue, and combinations of tan and white. Whether your home is traditional or modern, this 2021 trend can easily be implemented to any design or style.

Maximizing Storage

Whether you’ve gotten really into baking this past year or simply spent more time trying new recipes, increased kitchen storage is an absolute necessity in 2021. In the last few years, pantries have established themselves as one of the must-have items in modern homes. Upgrade your current kitchen pantry to include custom countertops, shelves and drawers to a functional and well-organized space.

Kitchen islands also work best when designed to your specific needs. Consider including cabinets or built-in features that allow you to get the most out of your space! Pair it with a natural stone or quartz countertop from IntelliStone to maximize your kitchen’s functionality!

Warm Neutrals

Move over plain whites and cool grays, 2021 is the year of warmer tones like ivory, cream, beige and more! When it comes to creating warm color palettes for your kitchen, you’ll find the possibilities are almost endless! Create a warm and inviting space with cream based countertops, cabinets and lighting pendants.

Organic and Natural Materials

The ability to bring nature into your home has been everyone’s goal after spending most of 2020 indoors. Natural and organic elements make homeowners feel calm, at peace and above all, welcomed into a space. Incorporating wood into your kitchen or bath is one of the easiest and warmest ways to add personality and character to your home.

Custom Quartz Countertops

While the look of marble countertops remains a top kitchen trend, quartz countertops are an increasingly popular alternative. Quartz offers an upscale look with patterns that mimic the look of marble and natural stone, while also being super durable and easy to maintain.
