6 Trends In Kitchen Design For 2021

Published April 13, 2021 by The Rise West Grove Estates

There is much truth to the old adage that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Marathon holiday baking sessions, indulgent pizza nights, tear-filled homework sessions, wine and cheese with old friends, pot scrubbing, pot scrubbing, pot scrubbing, and these days even workplace zoom meetings take place before the backdrop of the kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances.  If you are building your dream home in 2021, make sure you create a kitchen that will stand the test of time with careful consideration to how it will be used and the finishes that will bring you joy year after year.

The ideal kitchen design fuses form, function, and the most personal touches to create a space that serves you well in every aspect of family living. Make your kitchen the favoured place to gather and connect in your new build home.

It is exciting to consider the design of every room of your new home, but perhaps the space that will reflect your family’s values, lifestyle, and tastes the most is your kitchen. When selecting the finishes for your new kitchen, consider incorporating some (or all) of these top design trends:

Wood Cabinets

The white kitchen has reigned supreme for many years now. But we are seeing a return to the warmth offered with wood cabinets. Both light and dark woods are featuring in new home builds. Paired with stone countertops, wood lends an organic feel to your home and is durable and timeless.

Glass Doors

Feature treasured heirloom china or artisanal, handmade pottery collections with glass-fronted cabinets doors. Vintage leaded glass works well in traditional kitchens and sleek, simple panes are perfect for contemporary designs. And glass shelving within allows light to showcase each level. The key to success with glass cabinets is to use them selectively, not for every door, and to avoid them completely if organization is not your strong suit.

Moody Palettes

Make a statement with a strong and impactful darker palette in your kitchen. Blacks, greys, and navy, and emeralds are an impressive backdrop for walnut wood, darker stones, and unrefined concrete evoking a cozy and sheltered feeling in your kitchen.


Harkening back to old-world charm where they were a functioning and necessary feature for cooking, 2021 is bringing back the fireplace into a home’s kitchen. Polished and streamlined for a contemporary design or historically inspired for a traditional design, the fireplace will bring warmth and a spot to naturally gather within your kitchen.

Statement Vent Hoods

Highlight the appliance where the magic happens by topping your stove with a striking vent hood. Metal, wood, stone, tile, plaster… the options are endless. If you are not feeling courageous enough to take a big risk with your kitchen design, go out on a limb and take a chance with a bold vent hood.

The Kitchen Museum

With all the time spent in your kitchen, why not surround yourself with the beautiful and inspiring art pieces usually reserved for living rooms and studies. Vintage prints, framed paintings, and stunning photos can all add to the design story. Just be sure that valuable pieces are installed away from areas prone to spills, splashes, and open flames.


Your kitchen is the multi-use space in your home that must be designed with functionality as top of mind. But incorporating thoughtful touches and beautiful finishes will ensure that your kitchen is the place to create an abundance of special moments and lasting memories over the years.
