Spring 2021 has officially sprung! Now that the weather is warm and flowers are blooming, you might be feeling that it’s time to come out of hibernation and breathe new life into your kitchen.

If you’re curious about the latest kitchen design trends for Spring 2021, here are four expert design tips to inspire your next kitchen remodel:


1. Monochrome Palette for a Base

One of the hottest color trends for Spring 2021 is a monochrome palette for the base of your design. Put simply, “mono” means one and “chrome” refers to color, so a monochrome design is one that incorporates varying tones and tints of just one single color.

Perhaps the most popular way to embrace the monochromatic trend is to focus on shades of black, white, and gray. As you make choices for your countertops, cabinetry, furniture, walls, and appliances, you can create a cohesive sense of style by coordinating different shades along the white-gray-black spectrum.

However, if you’re passionate about color, you might also consider a design plan with multiple shades of a more striking tone – for example, blue. Here at RTA Wood Cabinets, our Elegant Ocean Blue shaker style cabinets are a magnificent blue-stained birch, which can be beautifully paired with similar, but slightly different shades of blue for your walls and accessories to create an alluring look.


2. A Pop of Pastel

With a monochromatic color scheme at the foundation of your design, you can add a pop of bright color to instantly draw attention to one focal point in your kitchen. Just in time for Spring, the hottest trend for 2021 is to choose a lively pastel color that contrasts with the dominant colors of your kitchen.

For example, if you choose a monochromatic blue kitchen, you could add a splash of pastel coral color in your backsplash or as part of a work of art for your walls.

The key to incorporating a pop of color is to use that color sparingly. Done well, your “pastel pop” should provide a sudden, noticeable contrast against the dominant colors of your kitchen, and offer the eye a singular place to land.


3. Freshen Up Your Kitchen Island

A kitchen island is often one of the busiest hubs of a home. For many, the island is not only a place to prepare and share meals, but also can serve as an office space, homework station, storage spot, and/or media center. If much of the life in your home centers around the kitchen island, it might be time to give your island a fresh Spring overhaul.

Now is the time to inspect your kitchen island for signs of wear and tear or damage. Don’t forget to check you’re the seating around your island to make sure it is still clean, fresh, and comfortable. If your kitchen island is the focal point of your home, you might want to consider investing in an upgrade for more storage capacity or counterspace.


4. Metallic Finishes

Metallic accents are not only one of the most sought-after kitchen design trends for 2021, they also add a touch of timeless elegance that will never go out of style.

Whether you pair a copper finish in your faucets to your copper cookware, or revel in cutting-edge stainless-steel appliances, metallic finishes will make your kitchen feel both sophisticated and modern. Just don’t forget to choose hardware for your kitchen cabinets that will match your metallic preferences.
