If you’re going for the “wow factor” of 2021, add some pizzazz to your space by introducing vibrant tile. Adding different colors, shapes, and even sizes of tile to your backsplash and walls brings a playful and light atmosphere to the heart of your home. Choose contrasting colors that match your space or a color that offsets your neutrals. If you’re not quite sold on the bold color option, choose a unique tile pattern instead, like this Calacatta gold marble with a wavy design. (Can’t commit? Peel-and-stick tiles will be your best friend.)
Designers have noticed an upward trend in clients asking for more sustainably made and organic materials for their kitchens. This includes reclaimed wood from local businesses for cabinets and counters, screens for all kitchen windows for better airflow, and UV lighting where possible. Reusing materials for decoration is also growing in popularity, and more homes are incorporating family antiques to decorate their space, making each kitchen totally unique.
Artwork in the kitchen? This is a trend that is quickly rising among interior designers. Adding personal touches, like a favorite piece of art or framed family photos, will make your kitchen feel comfortable, secure, and right at home.
Open shelving is still in, so don’t be afraid to show off your kitchen necessities (and vintage Pyrex dishes). The trend to replace upper cabinets with floating shelves is still popular, with a stronger emphasis on the design and placement of the items that find a home on each shelf. Decorative shelves that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional, which seems to be a trend that isn’t going away anytime soon. Plus, it’s the easiest spot in your kitchen to redecorate!
