Have you been considering remodeling your kitchen but are at a loss as to where to start? You can scour Pinterest for hours—we’ve all done it—but with such a breadth of content and potential inspiration, it’s hard to tell up from down. Keeping that in mind, we put together a list of three 2021 trends that can help form the outline of your dream remodel.
Backsplashes are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to get a completely new feel in your kitchen. They come in a wide array of colors, sizes, and textures that you can choose from. It’s a quick change and a great way to both camouflage and stylize the part of the kitchen most prone to food debris.
The current trends are leaning towards larger tiles in textures like granite or wood, and they seem to be growing in size, with some homeowners choosing to stretch a backsplash from floor to ceiling to create a beautiful splash of texture and color.
A renovation is a great chance to rethink the lighting plan in your kitchen. Much like contrasting textures in your choice of backsplash, adding a mix of light fixtures in your kitchen can create a striking and appealing statement.
Track lights are good for some ambiance if connected to a dimmer. The new trend, however, is LED ceiling lights. They’re eco-friendly and cost-effective, and they come in a few stylish varieties that can set the mood without purchasing and installing a chandelier.
While white is evergreen, recent trends have developed, showing that darker colors are actually becoming more popular. These have mostly come in earth tones, though there’s been a growing desire for darker jewel tones. You might not have considered shades of purple or blue for your kitchen, but you might be surprised how well it fits.
These changes range from simple to more complex, from things you can maybe do yourself versus what you should consult a professional for. Nevertheless, putting any effort into rejuvenating a space you use so often will bring entirely new energy to you and everyone that uses it.
