What’s the emerging kitchen design trend for 2021? Bold, bright color, according to the team at Wayfair, one of the nation’s leading providers of kitchen goods (things towels, dishes, small appliances, furniture and more). What’s driving this trend? We’ve all been at home a long time now, and we want rooms that make us feel good.
In the kitchen, embracing color often begins with a look at the cabinetry. Cabinetry can serve two roles – it can be the primary source of color in the room, as evidenced by the current trend for navy blue, sage and other painted cabinet finishes – or the cabinetry can serve as a neutral foil for colorful countertops, appliances, or wall treatments.
Wall treatments are a relatively low-cost, high-impact design element. That’s why they play such an important role in Massachusetts kitchen remodeling. On trend right now, cheerful, high energy colors, including lots of yellows and the paler greens. If you’re going for a distinctive, high end look, talk to your designer about tile options – you don’t have to have entire walls done to make a big visual splash in the room.
Don’t forget about flooring. Sustainable, ecologically friendly wood flooring is the top choice of many Massachusetts homeowners. Generally wood flooring serves as a neutral in a kitchen; for more impactful color, consider ceramic, stone, or vinyl tiles. Additionally, area rugs can be used to define key areas and add color within the kitchen.
Patterns are also beginning to emerge as a 2021 kitchen design trend. Often featuring a bright, bold color paired with white, black, beige or another neutral shade, patterns are used to create visual interest and introduce color without overwhelming the room. If you haven’t worked with patterns before, the assistance of a talented kitchen designer can help. Look for inspirational examples on social media. Choose the color that makes your heart happy, And get ready for a colorful kitchen you’ll love.
