Top Design Trends

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people use their homes. Thus, after more than a year of staying at home, many Americans want to expand and update their most utilized spaces: namely, the kitchen. Increasing the functionality and aesthetic appeal of the kitchen is more important to people than ever before. Some of the primary design trends for 2021 include:

Increased Storage

As a result of spending more time at home cooking their own meals, many Americans feel the need to increase their kitchen’s storage capacity. 94% of all home remodels in 2020 included cabinet work, while nearly half of all homeowners added or upgraded their pantries. Similarly, nearly all homeowners who add or upgrade their kitchen island incorporate storage elements like cabinets and drawers.

Countertop and Backsplash Upgrades

Increasing the size and number of cabinets necessitates new countertops. In fact, countertops top the charts as the most commonly upgraded kitchen feature, followed closely by backsplash upgrades. The majority of homeowners prefer a multi-colored quartz or granite countertop with a contrasting white or wood-tone island countertop. New countertops look incomplete, however, without a complementary backsplash. More than half of all homeowners prefer ceramic or porcelain tile backsplashes that extend from counter to upper cabinets.


Neutral colors reign supreme in the kitchen. The top three wall colors of 2021 are gray, white, and beige. Similarly, the most popular backsplash color (by far) is white. Along those same lines, 70% of homeowners prefer stainless steel appliances over other finishes. Wood tones are the top choice of flooring material; however, slightly more homeowners prefer wood-look tile than hardwood.
