At the beginning of each year, it is always exciting to see what new trends show up and which ones are still holding strong from the previous year. Here are a few that we are excited about.
Color trends continue to slide away from the cool grays and whites to the warmer greige (gray + beige), taupe, and shades of cream. Our West Des Moines kitchen remodel pictured above is a perfect example of a light kitchen done in softer tones than your standard white kitchen.
Quartz countertops continue to reign supreme in-home projects, and we are now seeing this low maintenance material being used in other areas, such as backsplashes and shower walls for a seamless look. No grout lines= easier cleaning!
Bold patterns and color accents are becoming more prominent in designs. Navy and emerald cabinets, patterned floor tiles and backsplashes, and wallpapered powder bathrooms are some of our favorite uses of this trend.
Pantries have always been coveted, but perhaps now more than ever as families are spending more time at home. Whether it’s a full-height cabinet with rollouts or a walk-in pantry, clients are wanting functional, organized solutions for food and appliance storage. Along these same lines, we are having more requests for panel-ready appliances, especially for dishwashers, which helps to keep a cohesive look across the base cabinets.
Wood accents and wood floors are a great way to add instant warmth and character to a space. Whether the wood accents are a permanent feature like the floors, range hood, or a contrasting stained island, or something smaller like a propped cutting board, get ready to see more wood details in 2021.
Mixed metal finishes, contrasting island color or countertop has been a popular trend for a few years. Warm brass + nickel pair well as do black and nickel or chrome, and we love to add a stained or colored island to break up an all white kitchen. The rules of design? There are none! Embrace the freedom!
