1. Smart Kitchens
Food recognition in refrigerators? Sure. Voice-controlled microwaves? Sure. Alexa-enabled oven? You bet. The smart home market is booming. It does not stop at appliances. Today we have technology built even into faucets and lighting. Faucets are equipped with motion detection that detects hands underneath to automatically turn on and off. Lights can be connected to your smartphones and tablets for easy operation. This trend has just picked up and is expected to be the most important kitchen design trend in 2021.
2. Cabinet Colors
Whites cabinets are classic that have stood the test of time. But right now, more and more homeowners are gravitating towards color, and shades of blues and greens for the kitchen cabinets are showing an upward trend. Another color palette that is growing popular right now are jewel tones- navy, emerald, and even red and black. These colors work well if you are looking for some drama and luxury in your kitchen.
3. Two Tone Kitchen Design
Another trend in 2020 and one that will continue to see a rise in the next year, is using a different colored base cabinet. Or simply different colored island cabinet if you are not feeling too adventurous. It helps break the monotony of color and change the feel of the kitchen. Adding darker base cabinets add depth and character and creates instant interest.
4. Hidden Gadgets and Appliances
People now prefer clean, minimalist look in their kitchens where the appliances, countertops and cabinets do not compete for center stage. Discreet storage of the appliances that can be concealed behind the cabinets is gaining popularity. Refrigerators and dishwashers can be concealed using the same cabinet fronts. Smaller appliances like toasters and blenders can be disguised using smart cabinet storage solutions.
5. Sustainable Kitchens
More and more people are gravitating towards eco friendly products, and kitchens are no exception. We will see a rise in the use of non-toxic, renewable, and recycled materials for the cabinets, flooring, and countertops. Bamboo, formaldehyde-free plywood, recycled glass, recycled paper, marmoleum and cork are top material choices for ecofriendly kitchen designs.
