Kitchen design has never been static—it does evolve, and more frequently than you think. Just like architecture, kitchen designs typically change per generation, but some art movements force the evolution of kitchens even while it’s still smack-dab in the middle of a kitchen design generation.
However, some kitchen designs also change year after year. In today’s post, your trusted kitchen contractors forecast a few changes to the designs of kitchens in 2021 and beyond.
The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in any home. This means it’s also full of items, which forces homeowners to be creative when it comes to storage—everything should be near at hand as well. In 2021, most contractors believe that wall-to-wall cabinetry will become trendy, as homeowners need to make the most of every square inch of space to store their kitchen implements.
Smart storage will also be an option for those who want to stay true to the KonMari philosophy. 2- to 3-in-1 shelving will become favored, as well as those cabinets that can be hidden or stowed away when not in use, reports kitchen renovation contractors.
Kitchens with a smorgasbord of colors are so passé. Expect kitchens with a monochromatic color scheme, especially on the dark side of things (black is a timeless classic). Two-toned kitchens, such as a vibrant color paired with a neutral one, will be more than welcome in 2021 as kitchen designers get more craft in terms of drawing and arresting the eye.
Increased Reliance on Lighting
In the 2020s, lighting will play a pivotal role in “extending” the living space to the kitchen. By using creative lighting fixtures like pendants and strip lights in addition to current mainstays like recessed lights or low beams, kitchen remodeling companies can make the kitchen more than just a place to prepare food.
