This is primarily because minimalist design is not only easy to achieve, with practicality being the key, but also helps create a calm living environment with pristine sweeping lines.

However, the trick to creating a streamlined kitchen is choosing high quality, luxury elements that put both functionality and strong lines at the forefront. It’s also essential to include hidden storage space and integrated appliances to make sure the visual appeal of your kitchen isn’t disrupted.

2. Surfaces With Darker Shades

With more homeowners taking surfaces to the dark side, we’re sure that this is going to be among the best and most popular kitchen trends 2021.

A result of the switch towards ‘two-toned kitchen designs’, the trend for darker surfaces allows you to create an air of elegance and luxury in your room. For instance, you could add dark countertops or worktops and pair them with vivid colours and lighter furniture, ensuring your kitchen looks sophisticated, yet stylish.

Now although the colour green isn’t everyone’s first choice when it comes to kitchen cabinets, when balanced with soft metallics, latte shades and smoky glass, it can absolutely add a touch of opulence throughout your kitchen.

To brighten up the space, you could also incorporate brass and white marble through features like worktops, lighting and other accessories.

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve a smaller space or an open-plan kitchen, green can help you add a luxurious and dramatic feel to your room.

5. Statement Flooring

When it comes to this trend, the trick is to let your flooring do all the talking while keeping every other aspect of the kitchen relatively minimal.

For instance, in a modern kitchen, you can go for handle-free cabinets in one of the shades that’s being featured in your tiles. However, avoid adding wall cabinets and instead go for open-shelves while using sleek white surfaces for your worktops.
