Kitchen designs have evolved over the years and planning a kitchen renovation is an important project to take on. There have been technological advances and changing social dynamics that have contributed to the changes in kitchen designs. With all that as a given, however, every year brings a new mix of kitchen design trends to make your space its most stylish. Whether you’re dreaming of sleek new kitchen countertops or you’re looking for some design inspiration for a little spruce up, here are a few kitchen trends for 2021 to consider.
The look of marble countertops remains a top kitchen trend as we move into 2021 but quartz counters are continuing to increase a popular marble countertop alternative. Why is that? Quartz countertops offer a contemporary, high-end look, while also being super durable and easy to care for. Quartz countertops also give you a great return on your investment in a kitchen remodel.
Dark Kitchen Countertops
Opposite of the trending quartz countertops the mirror the look of marble, dark kitchen countertops are also a popular choice amongst interior designers and homeowners. From dark, glossy granite options to deep-toned solid surface, dark kitchen countertops contrast beautifully with kitchen cabinets in a lighter wood or painted design.
Kitchen islands will always be a popular kitchen trend. If you have the space in your home to incorporate a kitchen island it can increase your prep, storage space and add more character. More and more kitchen designers are including island with multiple levels. Playing with various levels can give you more options for prep and comfortable seating. Whether you choose an island with different heights on opposing sides or a cantilevered design, having a multi-functional space is always a big advantage!

One piece backsplashes in materials like marble, quartz or solid surface adds a clean and cohesive look for an eye-catching design statement.
Energy Efficient Kitchens
As many of us become more conscious of our carbon footprint, one of the biggest trends you may see in 2021 is homeowners and designers making kitchens more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. One way you can achieve this if it is one of your 2021 resolutions is installing energy efficient windows, lights or other kitchen appliances.
In the year 2020 many of us have reflected on where we shop and source things for our home.
