Kitchen Trends in 2021 to Watch Out for

Trends exist through a continuous pattern of innovation and emulation. With the growth of visual social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest alongside contemporary television makeover programmes, the want for aesthetic and current homes is very prominent. The kitchen, for many, is the beating heart of any home - a space where we spend a lot of time, which is why its design is so crucial. Desired attributes and aspects alternate yearly and sometimes even monthly as trends adapt and change. In today’s blog, we will be observing the kitchen trends predicted for this year - 2021


Dark Surfaces


The trend for dark kitchen worktops has emerged due to the demand and popularity of two-tone kitchens. Dark worktops can be offset by using light furniture to add a sense of luxury and urbanity. Dark shades such as black, charcoal, ebony and dark grey, when utilised on worktops, can often make a room feel inviting and fresh.



Embracing Solid Surfaces


Solid surfaces are at the peak of popularity going into 2021. The material boasts a timeless look and is a non-porous homogeneous product. Different types of solid surfaces include quartz and granite, which can be custom designed to suit specific design preferences. Positive characteristics of solid surfaces include -


  • Durability

  • Easily maintained

  • Scratch and stain-resistant

  • Heat-resistant


Standout solid surfaces for 2021 look to include white marble-like quartz counters in white, grey and other cool-toned hues with neutral undertones.



Waterfall Countertops


A waterfall countertop is characterised by their vertical drop down the sides instead of stopping abruptly at the edge of the island, creating a continuous flow which links the floor to the island in a fluid transition. Waterfall countertops can help tie a room together, by creating a sleek and elegant flowing look - if you’re a fan of clean lines a waterfall countertop is for you.


Waterfall countertops have been favoured for years, however, their rising popularity makes it onto our 2021 kitchen trends list.


Geometric Splashbacks



Splashbacks are a practical addition to any kitchen. They can often help bind any room together and also be personalised to suit design requirements. In recent months geometric shapes have dominated the interior styling world, allowing designers to be as creative or simple as they wish.


From simple monochrome triangles and squares to complex lines and patterns, these characteristics can make a significant difference in the kitchen. Intricate and bright mosaic tiles can make a splashback look unique and is perfect incorporation for a rustic style of kitchen.
