Kitchen Trends for 2021

Kitchens are still the number 1 room to renovate in your home this year.  If you are renovating or building new, here are some key trends to consider.


Add a bit of depth in your kitchen design with a two-toned colour approach.  We are seeing different colour cabinetry on the island to add some contrast in the kitchen.  If you don’t have a kitchen island, you can mimic this trend by selecting a different colour for your lower cabinets compared to your uppers.

Touch of Gold

Gold is here to stay this year.  It has moved from jewelry and home finishes to the kitchen hardware in a big way.  Add a touch of gold to kitchen with an easy upgrade to your kitchen faucet or hardware.  Carry the trend with gold accessories on shelves or your countertop.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz is a manufactured product and has an endless array of colour and pattern options that you can’t get in natural stone like marble or granite.  It is a durable surface, easy to maintain and resists staining.

Clean Lines

Cabinetry is on trend with a minimalist design.  From smooth, sleek lines and minimal to no hardware, this trend can be seen in any size kitchen.

Back Splash

While white is still the most common colour for a backsplash, this is a great place to add some of your personality to the room.  The selection of pattern and textured tiles is growing each year and can really add a splash to your kitchen.  Solid, one-piece marble back splashes are also on trend for the year.

Organic Elements

Natural elements such as wood grain cabinetry, rattan or bamboo pendant shades and plants are making their way into the kitchen.   This is a great way to incorporate a light and uplifting feel to your kitchen with raw materials.
