When you work with our team of renovation contractors, we can help you create the kitchen of your dreams. Let’s have a look at kitchen renovation trends for 2021 to get your creative juices flowing.


For 2021, quartz countertops are the top trend. Offering a modern, stylish appeal that is equally elegant and functional, quartz countertops are engineered from pulverized natural stone and polymers making them more affordable than their natural stone countertops. But don’t be fooled, these countertops are durable, easy to maintain, and visually very appealing. Moreover, quartz countertops are easily customized so you can find the perfect match for your kitchen’s design.


Kitchen storage should always been at the forefront of your renovation plans. In addition to adequate space for pantry items, it’s important to consider storage for all your kitchen appliances as well as dishes, pots and pans, cutlery, and even recycling. With that in mind, wall-to-wall cabinetry is making a comeback, but with a distinctly 21st century twist. Stream-lined cabinets that reflect minimalist ideals, touch release designs, and sliding shelves blend fashion and function.

Certainly, kitchen islands are not a new trend, but design features for islands mark new territory. For example, with advances in technology, islands can be installed with hydraulic lift systems to make them more versatile – create a bar, added kitchen seating, or even allow kitchen prep for all your house members regardless of height. Another new trend with kitchen islands is multi-level islands that allow for more kitchen storage and additional seating.

Environmental Design

Ok, so environmentalism in the kitchen is more of an ongoing trend than a 2021 thing, but homeowners are always asking about how to reduce their environmental impact. There are many ways you can improve your kitchen’s energy efficiency so consider elements such as lighting, appliances, and even windows and window coverings. Before you begin your build, you can also consider how to incorporate recycled materials, new wall insulation, and water-saving faucets to round out your environmental design.

Go Your Own Way!

Finally, an emerging kitchen design trend is to express your own creativity. You can bring your own personality into your kitchen design with splashes of colour or patterns that highlight your unique style.
