Kitchen Remodeling Trends to Watch for in 2021

Kitchen Remodeling Trends to Watch for in 2021

Kitchens have gone through some radical transformations in the last several years. Not that long ago, white kitchens were all homeowners wanted - and you could see that reflected in every home magazine and home improvement website on the Internet. Today, kitchens are transforming, changing, and growing. Where once was white is now a vibrant bold paint. Where once was gray or neutrals we see pops of color.

Your 2021 kitchen remodel should last you for a decade or more. When it is finished, your kitchen should be more beautiful, more satisfying to use, and easier to maintain. 2021 kitchen remodeling trends all help with these goals. If you're planning an upcoming home remodel in Tennessee, here's what you need to know about the latest trends to make a splash with homeowners.

Smart Kitchen Designs


Think about the time you spend cooking. How much time do you spend dancing around members of your family, or dashing back and forth between the stove and the counter while you chop and cook, simultaneously?

Older kitchens are not always well-designed for their intended purpose. If you've ever heard of the kitchen triangle, then you know that home architects, designers and engineers have devised ways to make kitchens easier to use and more functional overall. Still, smart kitchen designs are not as common as they should be, and many older kitchens are simply not laid out efficiently.

Many homeowners are wising up to the deficiency in their kitchen, and in 2021, these homeowners will take matters into their own hands. If you're tired of wasting time while cooking, consult with a contractor with in-house design services to help you discover the best kitchen layout for your home. During the consultation, your contractor will probably discuss a variety of changes. By rearranging your sink, stove, and fridge, you can make your kitchen far more functional and efficient in the coming year.

Cabinet Colors

Out with the white cabinets, in with a beautiful rainbow of colors! Lots of homeowners in the coming year will be repainting their cabinets in bold, vibrant colors like deep navy, charcoal gray, and bold gray-green. This facelift makes old cabinets look brand new, while also adding color to make your kitchen more striking and enjoyable to behold.

While some homeowners choose to refinish their cabinets on their own, it's better to hire a professional. Kitchen cabinet refinishing takes days to complete, and if the surface isn't properly prepped to accept paint, it will quickly start to chip off after the work is finished. Hiring a pro helps ensure that the work paint will be durable and the finish will be long-lasting, so you won't have to worry about refinishing your cabinets again for a long time.

Two-Tone Kitchen Designs


Is your kitchen all one color, like white? Do you ever wish your kitchen had more visual variety? You're not alone. In 2021, homeowners will seek two-tone kitchen designs to make a change from the one-tone kitchen we've all grown accustomed to. If you liked the white but want to see more, add some color to your countertops, cabinets, or flooring.

If you're tired of white, go bold and crazy with a vibrant color plus a neutral. Potential combinations include gray-green and warm wood tones, or deep navy and stone gray. If you're looking for inspiration, there are many online apps that help homeowners plan their remodeling color schemes. There are also endless pictures of kitchen remodels online. Do some research to find your inspiration. Collect pictures of your favorite kitchen remodel to show your contractor during the initial consultations.

Smart Storage

Stock kitchen cabinets leave a lot to be desired, and often aren't efficiently laid out. Finding your pots and pans and storing kitchen items efficiently can be very difficult if your kitchen cabinets are not high quality. You don't need custom kitchen cabinets to store your pots and pans - semi-custom cabinets are often just as useful and a lot less expensive.

There are many kitchen cabinet options you may not be aware of. Your contractor can help you connect with a good kitchen cabinet supplier with all the latest storage options. Talk to your contractor about your biggest frustrations with your current cabinet storage. Your contractor will likely know about some cabinets that would suit your needs much better than what you currently have.

Eco-Friendly Cabinets and Accessories

Sustainability is more important than ever, which is why eco-friendly cabinets and accessories are a popular item in modern kitchens. You'll see this more than ever in 2021. The best cabinets are made from non-toxic environmentally friendly materials like reclaimed wood, with low VOC sealers and finishes.

Installing eco-friendly kitchen cabinets and accessories in your kitchen can help improve your kitchen's indoor air quality while also making your kitchen better for the environment. Eco-friendly materials are also popular among homebuyers, so these materials can help make your kitchen a selling point if you're thinking about selling your home. Your contractor can help connect you to long-lasting, durable, beautiful materials that are environmentally friendly. Remember to mention this to your contractor when you're discussing your upcoming home improvement project.
