5 Home Kitchen Remodeling Trends for 2021
Conserving on material costs has influenced kitchen remodeling trends for 2021. This has inspired some new, minimalist designs that could become timeless styles.
1. Contrasting Color Pops
2021 brings in a fun trend of contrast! Manifest this popular design aspect by pairing new cabinets and a creative backsplash. This can add color, variety and functionality to your remodeled kitchen.
2. Floating (a.k.a. Open) Shelves
Floating shelves, also known as open shelves, have grown in popularity. You can use them to stack dishes above the sink or make room for kitchen décor or overhead lamps. They make the kitchen feel more livable instead of congested as traditional cabinets would.
3. New, Low-Maintenance Flooring
Well-made luxury vinyl planks have a distinct texture that is similar to hardwood. You can choose it in whatever color matches the rest of your kitchen design, and it gives you more a more budget-friendly flooring option. It gives you the look you want and you can use water on it, which makes it easy to keep clean.
4. Creative Task Lighting
Task lighting can especially help anyone who has sight impairment issues regardless of age. It makes food details more visible when prepping meals. You can also connect them to dimmers to create ambiance. Additional overhead lights can also add to the mood you want to set in your kitchen. Make this area as lively or as romantic as you want it to be.
5. Cabinet Refacing
If you don’t want to gut out your entire kitchen, cabinet refacing is an option. Instead of buying all new cabinets that would require remodeling and reinstallation, buy new cabinet door and drawer fronts. It’s even possible to replace whole drawer boxes, which makes updating your cabinets simpler. Cabinet refacing is an option that we offer in Orlando and surrounding areas. The advantage of cabinet refacing is that it can still totally change the look of your kitchen, but the project can be completed much quicker than gutting your kitchen and waiting for new cabinets.
Replacing decorative hardware and replacing countertops also can make your kitchen look new again. You can find some new countertop options to accent your kitchen. Since color pops are a “thing” for 2021, try a bright-colored countertop if your kitchen is dark. Otherwise, pick a dark color if your kitchen is bright.
