Top 10 Kitchen Design Trends in 2021

From the layout to the finishes, this year is a turning point for kitchen design. Kitchens have changed a lot over the decades and planning a kitchen remodel is very important to one’s lifestyle. But since our 2020 year, people began to focus more on the home than ever! This focus has grown into many changes and created a collection of kitchen design trends we cannot take our eyes off. We want to do all the trends in our kitchen but since that would take away from the allure of each, we managed to break it down. Technological advances and changing social dynamics have contributed greatly to the rise of modern kitchen designs. There’s also a much bigger focus on open-concept homes that revolve around the kitchen so everyone can be together. We’ve gathered the top 10 and put them on our list for your inspiration.

1. Open Concept

Open Concept

At MTD Kitchen, we’ve always known beautiful cabinetry serves as a major selling point in any competitive housing market. And we love providing excellent installation and savings to our multiunit clients who are preparing to rent or sell their buildings. For this Wilshire & La Jolla project, MTD Kitchen was contracted to build and install all of the cabinetry from top to bottom in each unit. That is one of our larger projects, approximately 560 rooms inside of each building unit which will consist of all the millwork; from high-quality kitchens to wall panels, bathrooms, closets, and common rooms. We’re very excited to be able to be the cabinet provider in this highly anticipated apartment tower. MTD’s beautiful cabinets and space-saving mechanics makes any apartment kitchen more efficient and luxurious.

2) Larger Kitchen Islands

The Rockstar Kitchen

Near the famous Miracle Mile neighborhood this apartment is located at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and La Jolla, just south of Hollywood Hills and east of Beverly Hills. The 15-story mixed-use residential and retail building consists of apartment homes, 6,000 SF of retail, four levels of above-grade parking, and resident amenities on the sky deck and podium levels. The shape of this high-rise residential tower draws inspiration from the film and television industry of Los Angeles.

3) Larger Kitchen Islands

With kitchens, closets, and bathroom cabinets from MTD as an added luxury, we anticipate these apartment homes will rent faster with the kind of quality material and craftsmanship we are providing. 

4) More Natural Light

Homeowners are adding more (or bigger) windows to their kitchens in efforts to bring the outdoors inside — helping a kitchen to feel more upbeat and open. Fact: Sunshine makes any room more inviting and natural elements are instant mood boosters

5) Farmhouse: Wood Cabinetry
