Out with the old and in with the new! With people spending a significant amount of time inside their homes during 2020, the desire to do home projects skyrocketed.
If you are one of those people itching to make some home improvements, specifically in your kitchen, then this list of the top trends in 2021 is for you.
Woven Light Fixtures
If you’re looking to add a relaxed, breezy feel to your kitchen, woven-style fixtures are the trend to shed a light on, giving you those natural contemporary vibes.
Appliances in Drawers
As easy to open as a normal drawer, the innovative dish drawer and cool drawer provide an array of functions that make life easier. Not to mention the seamless design will give your kitchen the minimalist look that is becoming more popular.
“In 2021, marbles with dramatic veining will take precedence over more demure slabs of years past,” says Marie Flanigan, principal of Marie Flanigan Interiors. Is this the year that we start to say goodbye to all white kitchens?
If you are someone who loves to entertain, why not combine your kitchen table with your kitchen island for the ultimate gathering spot? You will love integrating your cooking and socializing from one central area.
Metallic interiors are shining bright in 2021. When paired with light stone countertops, metal adds the warmth and contrast your kitchen needs to make it perfect.
The downside of beautiful granite or marble countertops is how cold they feel to the touch. The simple upgrade of adding a countertop warmer under the area where you frequently lean is a luxury you didn’t know you needed this year.
Eye-Catching Vent Hoods
Good bye, stainless steel! Vent hoods are becoming increasingly popular as the kitchen’s most eye-catching focal point. If you follow some of the top designers, you will notice this trend everywhere.
Stainless steel accessories aren’t going away but what is expected to take over is brushed brass, matt black, and gold tapware. Draw the eye and compliment the cabinetry with any of these new materials.
Greens & Blue-Grays
Experts everywhere are declaring that the green, blue and gray hues will be the up-and-coming color for kitchens and bathrooms for the next several years.
Deep Single-Basin Sinks
Deeper, one-basin sinks make soaking and washing dishes much easier than double-bowl sinks. This isn’t a new trend but more and more homeowners are prioritizing this practical upgrade in their kitchens.

By now you’ve probably seen or at least heard about Netflix’s new home design show, Dream Home Makeover, which features the talented work of Shea McGee and her interior design firm, Studio McGee.
Studio McGee has “garnered a reputation for beautifully balanced spaces that feel refreshingly modern and endlessly classic” all around the U.S. It is no surprise that people have fallen in love with the transformations highlighted in each episode of the hit Netflix show.
Below are 8 notable takeaways from Dream Home Makeover to help you design your own perfect space.
Welcome your guests with an entry way table.
The two main components Shea Mcgee uses on her entry way tables are oversized lamps and a round mirror, giving the space plenty of light and depth. Add a splash of greenery with a smaller artwork piece and you’re all set!
Keep the main design elements classic.
Trends don’t last forever so it is important to keep your expensive furniture items more timeless. You will be happier in the long run when you don’t have to replace them for something more in style.
Make your lighting the focal point.
Don’t ever be afraid to “go big” when it comes to sizing of your light fixtures. They can act as your statement decorative piece in any room and will draw the eyes upward.
Avoid being too “matchy” with your décor.
Find pieces that work cohesively together without looking like you bought duplicates of the same item. Mixing up the sizing and textures of your wall artwork, throw pillows, vases and mirrors adds character.
Include light touches of greenery in every room.
Studio McGee is big on “bringing the outdoors inside” to give your space extra color and life.
Always add an oversized rug, even if you already have carpet.
“Adding a rug to your living space or bedroom gives your furniture a place to ‘live’ and easily adds dimension and texture,” says Mcgee. “You don’t even need wood floors. If you have a low pile carpet you can layer a rug for an extra cozy lived-in look.”
Bring on the contrast.
Throughout the show, you will notice Shea’s use of colored paneling on the walls which provides plenty of character and contrast. More and more people are falling in love with this “moody” feel, especially in rooms where you want to feel cozy.
Keep your bathroom décor minimal yet functional.
Baskets, glass canisters and linen shelves are a visually appealing way to store your towels, toiletries and other items while keeping your bathroom looking clean and practical. Studio McGee offers plenty of options now available at Target.
