Kitchen Trends To Look Out For In 2021

With all the time that people are currently spending in their homes, it is no surprise that almost everyone is paying closer attention to how they can improve the look of their living spaces. Whether it is upgrading with a view to selling up and moving somewhere new or simply wanting to make things more liveable, there has been an increase in renovating and redesigning the most commonly used rooms of the house. Let’s take a look at the trends set to skyrocket in 2021 when it comes to the heart of the home, the kitchen.

Space, Space and More Space
The pandemic has seen more people than ever before swapping the office for the kitchen table. For those without a dedicated home office, the kitchen has become something of a go-to option for remote working. As a result, there is a push for making this room into a more flexible and multi-purpose area. Kitchen islands have always been a popular option, but the latest option is to create double the fun (and space) with a pair of islands parallel to each other. This creates a wealth of storage to keep things off surfaces and offers the ability to build in a removable desk that spans the space between the two islands. Ideal for a breakfast bar or a home office space that is easily removed once the work day is over.

Toasty Towels
Wet dish towels are high on the list of things that make you go yuck. Not only do they feel horrible but they can also harbour harmful bacteria and mould, not what you want to be drying your plates with. A heated towel rail is an ideal solution. A mainstay of bathrooms, they are making their way into kitchens as the perfect way to keep things both dry and warm. With many designs coming with a slim line profile they are easy to install in all manner of places including behind doors. They can easily complement any existing radiators already in the room. To get a jump on our next trend, take a look at these heated towel rails that come with a chrome finish.

Mighty Metals
Once upon a time sinks came in either white porcelain or silver. Say goodbye to these limited options and explore the world of metallics. Think gold sinks, bronze faucets and nickel knobs. You don’t need to stick with matching materials either. For an eclectic look that is streamlined play around with the relationships between different metallic materials and colours. Metal lighting fixtures coupled with Edison style bulbs are an ideal way to explore this particular trend.

Stunning Sinks
If a rose gold sink isn’t quite the style you are looking for, why not consider another material entirely? While the classic farmhouse sink has long been a favorite of those looking to make their sinks a feature of the kitchen, they are by no means the only option. Soapstone and marble are the newest kids on the sink block with extra points for integrated sloped drying racks. With these heavyweights, you will want to make sure that the surrounding cabinetry can take the weight. They are not a cheap option either, so extra care should be taken when installing them. Consider upgrading a more standard style sink with the metallic touches mentioned above for a more budget-friendly option.

I hope these trends have got your creative wheels spinning and you are ready to try out some of them in your next renovation project.
