2021 Kitchen Remodel Trends: Making the Most of Less

Tri-Lite Builders

Our kitchens became the heart of the home in 2020, and for many with smaller spaces, the need for a remodel is booming! Here are the top 8 trends to maximize functionality and enjoyment in a compact kitchen:

Space-Saving Layouts:

  • L-Shaped Kitchens: Reigning supreme in 2021, L-shaped kitchens offer an efficient layout that flows seamlessly into other areas, perfect for maximizing square footage.

Open Concept Living:

  • Connecting the Family: The pandemic has put a new spin on open-concept living. This design fosters family connection while meals are prepared, creating a more expansive feel. Remember, hidden storage is key to minimizing clutter.

Color Trends:

  • Neutral Serenity: Neutral colors are timeless and allow for easy mixing and matching. Greens and blues bring a touch of nature indoors in a variety of shades, from calming muted tones to bold and dramatic.

Appliance Must-Haves:

  • Space-Conscious Choices: Opt for flush-mount cooktops over space-consuming ranges. Consider induction cooktops for their easy cleaning, energy efficiency, and eco-friendly nature.
  • Stylish Finishes: Matte and brushed appliance finishes are all the rage – they hide smudges and fingerprints beautifully!

Countertop and Cabinetry:

  • Dramatic Duos: Darker countertops in stone or wood are trending, offering a beautiful contrast to lighter, natural wood cabinets that add warmth.
  • Streamlined Storage: Ditch the hardware! Handle-less cabinetry with integrated pulls or touch latches creates a sleek, modern look. Utilize floor-to-ceiling upper cabinets for maximum storage.
  • The Illusion of Space: Incorporate fluted or dimpled glass fronts on a few upper cabinets to create a sense of spaciousness.

Statement Pieces:

  • Express Yourself: Even small kitchens can have personality! Add a touch of artistic flair with unique backsplash tiles, a statement sink, a custom vent hood, or a displayed piece of art (just keep it away from splatter zones!).

Natural Light Matters:

  • Vitamin D Boost: Embrace natural light! Install larger windows or incorporate skylights to bring the outdoors in and elevate your mood.
