5 kitchen trends for 2021

As we’ve all spent more time than ever in our homes, many of us are now investing in refurbishing and decorating our living spaces. Most of us have gone from making the occasional meal to cooking three courses a day in our kitchens and if you’re looking to transform your kitchen, we’ve got the top trends for 2021 you need to look out for…

Marvellous marble

Marble was huge in 2020 and is here to stay in 2021. Associated with a real luxe look, marble can add an elegant touch to your kitchen and doesn’t need to overwhelm the space if you go for a soft cream colour option. If you’re nervous about going all out with marble worktops, consider a patterned glass splashback instead to add a subtle touch of marble effect to your kitchen.

Dark drama

Along with marble, deep rich navy and inky blacks also have become associated with a luxury feel. Don’t be scared of dark colours, as when mixed with the right textures (think soft woods and pops of rose gold) it won’t overwhelm the space and will make your kitchen look incredibly sophisticated.

Statement lighting

Originally just for dining rooms and lounges, bold pendant lighting in kitchens will be a big trend for 2021. If you want to keep the main décor of your kitchen simple, you can use lighting to really add some drama to the space. If you have an island in your kitchen, you can transform it with some fantastic pendant lights and simple stools to make it an area your guests will want to hang out in whilst you cook.

A golden touch

Options for taps and sinks have come such a long way and you no longer have to feel limited! Gold accessories will continue to be a big trend this year, so explore adding a statement to your sink with gold taps, especially if you are mixing them with dark colours or marble for a glamorous look.

Colour pops

If big, bold design isn’t for you, there are simpler ways to add flair to your kitchen. Keeping your main units neutral, choose one or two bright colours for your kitchen accessories to add a splash of brightness to your kitchen without a long term commitment. Think white cupboards and worktops with beautifully bright teal and orange accessories to add some cheer. You could also opt for a brightly coloured splashback to drop some colour into a neutral kitchen.

Which material is right for me?

3mm Natural Crystal Finish

3mm Uncoated (natural crystal 3mm) - A thinner 3mm thick alternative to our 5mm thick panels. These are much more flexible than our 5mm panels, making them perfect for slight curves or situations where ultra-light applications are needed. These do not have scratch, mould and chemical resistant properties.

5mm Natural Crystal Finish

5mm Uncoated (natural crystal) - As the 3mm Natural Crystal but 5mm thick.

6mm Toughened Glass

Highly scratch resistant, toughened glass. Our glass is low-Iron…meaning that it is as crystal clear as possible. This stops the green tint that you see on most glass, meaning the colour will be unaltered and seen as it was intended. Tough and heavyweight items. Bespoke, unique, classy look. Our glass is heat resistant so can be used behind direct heat sources. You can have any colour or design…just as all of our acrylics.
