Kitchens are a common gathering space in most homes. Whether for regular mealtimes or special events, chances are your kitchen is the most frequently visited room in the house. While some kitchen designs can be timeless, there are always new trends to keep an eye on. As we step into 2021, take a look at some of these kitchen remodel ideas to refresh your space for the coming year.
While marble has long been viewed as the peak of luxury (as far as countertops are concerned), there’s a more practical and attractive option. Quartz countertops are rising in popularity for several reasons.
They maintain that elegant stone look, while offering more durability than marble. Also, quartz is harder to scratch and won’t show watermarks. It’s easier to line up the seams on quartz, too, making it an excellent choice for homeowners. And finally, it’s a more affordable way to bring a sophisticated look to your kitchen this year.
Get Rid of the Hardware
Another big trend in kitchen remodels this year is striving for a more minimalistic look. This can be achieved by installing clean line cabinetry with little to no hardware. With new features, like touch release options to open cabinets and drawers, your eye will no longer be drawn to handles and knobs. Instead, you can craft other elements to accent your kitchen.

With each passing year, sustainable design becomes more desirable among homeowners. Surprisingly, one of the best ways to achieve sustainability in your kitchen is through your windows. Installing big windows will allow you to enjoy natural light for longer periods of the day. But be sure to select insulated, energy-efficient windows to keep the outside elements where they belong—on the other side of the glass.

A Warmer Eco-Friendly Color Palette
If you’re tired of having cold colors in your kitchen, like whites and grays, you’re in luck! There’s a growing movement to bring warmer colors back into the kitchen by adding wooden cabinetry. You can even merge this with a more sustainable design by using reclaimed wood to build your cabinets. This wood is not only less expensive, but a great way to help recycle products. The end result will be a beautifully rustic atmosphere, reminiscent of a log cabin, and perfect for any lover of the outdoors.
