So, are you planning to do some kitchen remodeling for a fresh start in 2021? It may surprise you that some of the hottest trends in kitchen design aren’t as hard to pull off as you might think. Our expert kitchen contractors can tell you more in detail, but here are some ideas that are stylish and smart. Let’s get started.
There is something irresistible about a kitchen that feels warm with a hint of the past. It’s one of the main gathering places in a house. For many of us, we often think that rustic means a remote log cabin in the woods. This is not always the case, though. In reality, rustic is returning to wood accents, earthy colors, and distressed cabinets.
It’s popular to mix and match rustic elements with more modern features. too. Consider a hanging rack for pots and pans, or open cabinets to display beautiful dishes. A stone or brick backsplash is also a nice touch because it adds texture. These details help to bring out a visual warmth that gives the illusion of old-fashioned kitchen design.
This storage is ergonomic, with space-saving designs. More than ever, it’s becoming popular to create interior pockets and shelving designs that maximize storage space so you can get the most out of your kitchen. This gives you better access to everything inside lower cabinets. Who doesn’t need more room to organize spices and cooking tools?
Built-in smart storage is a growing trend that is also extending to storage closets and walk-in pantries. Green is trending in kitchen color design, and there are so many greens to choose from, all the way from mint to teal.
What used to be a nightmare because of warping wood is better managed with the latest composite materials now. Inset cabinets offer a sleek design giving you the same look as flat-panel cabinets, but the design is a little different. The frame style is up to you since every cabinet should fit the theme you choose. With inset cabinets, the hinge is built into the cabinet so the doors swing outward. Unlike hanging door cabinets, inset hinges add a bit of country charm.
Adding just the right amount of washed-out weathering makes cabinet surfaces look homey, but not in need of replacing.

One option that adds a touch of class to your kitchen is with mullion frame cabinet doors. These are essentially wooden frames that have glass panels inserted inside the center. Mullion frames are elegant enough to make popular rustic designs feel similar to French colonial styles. A kitchen island could also be turned into a statement piece in this kind of kitchen, possibly even with a decorative chandelier hanging above it.
The advantage is opening up your kitchen space while allowing you to see inside your cabinets more easily. It’s classy enough to add LED accent lighting inside to give the illusion of even more space in your kitchen.
