Kitchen trends in 2021

Looking to update your kitchen? Whether you want to invest in a completely new kitchen or refresh and up-cycle your current kitchen we have all the latest trends.


When it comes to the colour of your kitchen 2021 is the year of contrasting colours. Picking two colours on opposite sides of the colour wheel eg blue and orange achieves a bold and fun contrast.

These bold colours offer more playful energy, uplifting the space. Colours like yellow affect our emotions and its brightness and cheeriness will act as a pick me up whenever you enter the room. Whereas green will give a feeling of relaxation and zen.

Gold finishes are also making a statement this year! Gold taps and sinks can turn a functional item into a statement! And if gold isn’t your colour then there are a wide range of colours and finishes available.

If you are just wanting a pop of colour then a coloured backsplash or island is the ideal solution. You could pick a completely different colour or just a different shade of your main colour creating a completely unique space. And if the paint isn’t taking your fancy then why not consider a tiled backsplash.

When it comes to picking a colour always remember it is a personal experience so throw the rule book out and pick whatever takes your fancy.
