For a very long time, the neutral home has been at the top of the themes? They are simple to get right and they don’t rely on someone with a large imagination to style a tree. Who doesn’t love sophisticated white, black, grey, and beige interior design colour schemes to make their home look fabulous? But this has been done to death, as the neutral home has been the top style for over 10 years now! The colourful home is making a huge comeback in 2021. It's going to be the leading style factor and chief among the trends will be colourful and bright kitchen trends 2021.
What colour is in fashion for kitchens?
Why the shift?
As you would expect, the new decade means a new style. Colourful Kitchens are set to be a huge trend for 2021 - the pendulum has swung the other way. It's a cultural shift too, you can see more vibrant clothing, bright cars, and cities with bright storefronts. It's now filtering into the home, and the kitchen is the prime example of how powerful it can be.
Strong surface colours
Firstly, the cupboards and cabinets can be bright, but usually, the surfaces are dark. The neutral home had white countertops but now, we are seeing darker tones for island tops and cutting surfaces. We are seeing black, grey and other naturally dark materials like slate, granite and quartz being used. The splashback itself is also being put into black and greys. This allows the other parts of your kitchen to shine brighter, so you don’t need to have overly bright colours for your drawers, cupboards and cabinets. It's all about making a statement, showing confidence in your style choices.
As you can imagine, if your cupboards and drawers are going to be brighter, this allows for naturally two-tone kitchens, beyond black and white. You can have green drawers with a varnished wood look for your island. You may find that red doors along with black or grey add a touch of grandeur to your home. The richness of the colours will be contrasted much better when you have more natural light coming into the kitchen too.
Calming paint colour schemes
We have also found that more calmness in the home is very important in 2021. You may have darker colours around the home, but you also need sublimely soft colours to penetrate through the loud vibrancy and masculine tones. So we think, keeping beige around in the form of lampshades or for your wallpaper is very advisable. Likewise, pastel shades could do wonders as they are always softer on the eyes.
You should have bright colours around the kitchen, but we also think darker tones make sense. Consider dark green and navy blue for the cabinets and cupboards. It's a happy medium between strength and softness. If you have natural light wading in, the dark tones won’t seem that dark, so you have the best of both worlds.
