2021 Kitchen Design Trends that Will Stand the Test of Time

Oftentimes, we fall in love with the hot trends we see on HGTV or Pinterest, but they end up impractical for a kitchen getting every day use. We get that. At Choice Remodeling, we work with you to take inspiration from these top trends and work with you to help translate those into timeless designs tailored real people and real lifestyles. After all, we want to ensure you’ll love using your space for decades, regardless of how trends change over the years.

In this blog, we’re showcasing some of the 2021 kitchen design trends that are making headlines but will hold their relevance years from now. Discover these new kitchen design ideas that are equal parts striking and practical.


Explore a Few of Our Favorite New Kitchen Design Ideas

From luxury materials, to ever-popular color choices and commonsense upgrades, the very best design elements will never fade. These are a few of our favorite new kitchen ideas that are going to be big in 2021 – yet will never look outdated:

Supersized Islands

Large white kitchen island trend

Islands are a favorite part of countless kitchen renovations, so it only makes sense to maximize their impact. This kitchen design trend doubles down by either featuring two islands in the right kitchen, or an extra long or extra wide island. This added island space can be ideal for everything from food prep to entertaining. If your space has the room to accommodate it, this is a touch you’ll always appreciate.


Classic Cabinet Colors

Cabinet colors are one of the kitchen styles that change the most frequently – and sometimes the most drastically. That’s why we recommend going with classic colors that never really fall out of favor. For painted cabinets, we recommend white, neutrals, or black if you want to play it on the safe and consistent side. These choices are exciting but not as intimidating as brighter colors. For stained cabinets, choose a more neutral tone like a light brown with neutral undertones to keep the look classic.


Bold Countertops

Going hand-in-hand with the previous new kitchen design idea, homeowners are choosing to use the pattern of their countertop to make their color statement. Both quartz and granite countertops are available with bold pattern options. While this touch of colorful character won’t be ignored, it is a safer commitment than hyper-colorful cabinetry.

Include a Customized Pantry

Pantry design for modern white kitchen

This kitchen idea is less about showing off your personal style and more about getting organized in a way that’s personalized to you. While pantries aren’t a fixture in new home builds the way they used to be, they are becoming an in-demand add-on for a kitchen renovation. This is the kind of upgrade that you’ll appreciate every day.


Exposed Range Hoods

This 2021 kitchen design trend is a holdover from previous years, but it still deserves a spot on our list. Firstly, these large range hoods provide superior air filtering that both amateur chefs and kitchen pros are sure to appreciate. In addition to that practical plus, this add-on brings a striking  accent that naturally catches the eye. Expect to see this in a wide variety of different kitchen styles for a long time to come.


Unique Appliances

As gorgeous, trendy, and jaw-dropping as your kitchen is, it ultimately has a job to do – help you cook. That’s why the final new kitchen design idea we expect to see more is unique appliances. This includes upgrades like, a double oven for holiday baking, high end and colorful ranges, and anything else that makes cooking what you love more convenient.

I would give Choice 10 stars if I could. The folks at Choice Home Remodeling have replaced all 31 of the windows in our house over the past year. They are incredibly professional and deliver an outstanding final product. The replacement windows look better than the originals and I get compliments on them all the time! The inside temperature of the inside glass on a 55 degree day has improved by 8 degrees! I am looking forward to seeing what the differential is once the weather turns cold. Their pricing is fair and the quality is second to none. I recommend them 1000%.
We absolutely love the new door we just had installed from Choice! We had such a great experience with Choice from start to finish. Tim was great and helped us pick out the perfect door for our home and didn't try to sell us the most expensive model and was honest, not pushy. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and professional and the work was top notch.
I bought my windows from them. Everyone one was so nice and professional. Christie was very helpful. Thank you, will use again for other projects
So pleased with our bathroom renovation by Choice Home Remodeling! Alyssa Hayes did an excellent job in designing a functional and attractive way to best utilize our small space. Our kids are thrilled to have their own sinks! Alyssa patiently guided us through the design choices, made recommendations and outlined the construction process. The construction phrase was very timely, and Ken Brown was available for any questions and kept us informed of the schedule and what part of the project was happening when. I was very impressed that the job was finished very close to the scheduled completion date. The Choice staff and subcontractors were all respectful of our space and did a thorough job.
