The kitchen. It’s the space where generation-defying recipes are concocted and families gather to make memories. Because this room has the ability to bring people together and create lifetime connections, it’s important to show it some love by keeping it up to date. Whether you renovate the cabinets, replace basic bar stools with modern designs or undergo a complete redesign, you can care for your kitchen by making design improvements (large and/or small) every few years. Plus, a kitchen remodel can increase your home’s value, boasting returns of 60% to 80%.

Here South Land Remodeling offers our top kitchen design ideas to show your cooking space some design-savvy TLC.

Popular Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

1. Try a Shaker Style

Shaker cabinets are a timeless option for multiple interior design styles ranging from traditional to contemporary. The cabinet doors are typically made of wood material with a simple inset panel.

2. Add a Pop of Color

One of the more recent kitchen cabinet design trends is colorful cabinetry. Try a bold color such as navy or sage green to make a statement. If you’re worried about changing the color of your cabinets, start smaller with just the island cabinets or a colorful tile backsplash.

3. Create a Visually Interesting Island

Typically, kitchen islands are square or rectangular. If you want yours to stand out, add a curved edge or a waterfall countertop (where the countertop spills over three or more sides of the island).

4. Play with Material & Textures

Using different materials throughout the kitchen can break up monotones and finishes. Add features like a stone backsplash, butcher-block countertop, concrete floor and textural wallpaper to make the space pop.

5. Create a Pantry

Although pantries have been around for years, they’ve become increasingly popular in recent years, making them a must-have kitchen design trend in 2021. Pantries offer an abundance of storage space and can potentially free up the walls from additional cabinetry. With less cabinets, you can take part in another trend: open shelving.

6. Paint It White

One of the biggest kitchen trends of the year and recent years is the white kitchen. White creates a bright, minimalist and tidy atmosphere. Freshen up your cabinets or walls by painting them a shade of white. Switch out your backsplash for white subway tile or change your countertops to white marble or marble-imitating quartz.

7. Hide Appliances in Cabinetry

Because the minimal appearance is in, take a fresh alternative to stainless steel appliances. Instead, keep the refrigerator, wine fridge and dishwasher hidden away by covering their service with custom cabinetry.

8. Include Gold Finishes

To make your cooking space feel luxurious and on-trend, add gold or brushed brass finishes, such as pendant lighting, faucet, pot filler, cabinet pulls and more.
