2021 Kitchen Trends for Vancouver Homes

Share Article

Give your kitchen a new lease on life with a chic upgrade that’s easy to incorporate into your current kitchen space. Tap into bold hues of green, sophisticated black, or gentle contrasting colours and textures. From colour schemes to countertops, evergreen wood flooring to tile and marble splashbacks, spruce up your kitchen with these easy to incorporate styles:


Introduce a Pop of Colour

While the all-white kitchen may look timeless, newer design trends for 2021 are seeing a growing shift in bold cabinets, colourful tiled walls, and textured flooring. Regardless of your kitchen style, be it a modern minimalistic or rustic farmhouse chic, a pop of colour in the right place or the right appliance can dramatically elevate the look and feel of your kitchen.


Natural and Sustainable Elements

On the path to promote sustainable and green carpentry, many companies offer cabinets and shelvings that are eco-friendly. Handmaid tiles made from terra-cotta or cement are perfect for adding a bit more soul to space. Installing energy-efficient windows can also go a long way in making your kitchen more environmentally friendly and help save on the utility bill in the long run. 


Woven Fixtures

Woven light fixtures made from materials like bamboo and rattan add a bit of a breezy, relaxed feel to your kitchen. Woven-style, light-hued pendant lights add a contemporary, natural vibe to the kitchen space.


Modern Take on Mid-Century Style

The contrast of rich timber cabinets and drawers with the bright white splashbacks, walls or countertops lends a soft curve to the mid-century style. For instance, dark walnut cabinets work great with tall white cabinets creating a modern, contemporary look. 


Raised Storage for  Appliances 

This isn’t a brand new take as minimalism could never truly go out of style. The main aim of arranging appliances has to do with the ergonomics of the kitchen space. Applianced tucked away at bench height are quick to access and easy on those suffering from back problems! As easy as accessing a normal drawer. 


Support Local

Add more character to your kitchen with wares sourced from your favourite neighbourhood vintage or antique store. You can add more green to your kitchen with indoor plants sourced from a local nursery. Support your local carpenters by sourcing authentic kitchen furniture and wood from local retailers, suppliers, and designers when renovating the space.
