The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home. While most people are holding off on entertaining due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many have been cooking more and using their kitchen as a hub for working and learning from home. As families have spent more time in their kitchens, they’ve also had more time to notice the shortcomings of the space and develop ideas to personalize it. This is reflected in the following kitchen design trends emerging in 2021.
- Gourmet aspirations. With fewer options for eating out and more time in the kitchen, many homeowners have developed a flair for the gourmet – that is, requests for gourmet kitchens have been increasing. For those with a desire to create and show off their culinary prowess, the features of a gourmet kitchen – larger cabinets, expansive island additions, and more space in general – may be the way to go.
- Expanding storage space. To reduce the number of trips made to the grocery store, a lot of people have been buying in bulk. In order to accommodate the greater size of these grocery hauls, however, additional storage is needed. This is one of the reasons why homeowners have been adding more cabinetry when doing kitchen remodeling or enlarging their current pantry into a walk-in version.
- A return to simplicity. There’s a lot to be said for keeping things simple. For one thing, flat surfaces, such as flat-faced cabinet doors and simple pulls without crevices, are much easier and quicker to clean and sanitize. For busy homeowners juggling work and household chores with a desire to keep their homes clean while staying as healthy as possible, this is extremely helpful.
