2021 is seeing a rush of new homes built and renovations at an all-time high. And, why not? We're spending more time than ever in our homes and should enjoy the look and energy they emit. Cabinets, believe it or not, are a major part of renovations as well as decorating for new homes. So, as an interested party, you may be wondering what 2021 trends are bound to be hot in the coming year.

While a classic white kitchen will always be in style, it's a great idea to spruce it up with a splash or two of color, especially on cabinets. Perhaps you want to change out your hardware with colored glass knobs or handles. Another idea is to take the island and paint it a solid color that contrasts nicely with the other areas. Take that white kitchen mentioned before and paint the island an ocean blue or to keep the kitchen with its light airy feel, a primary yellow would look great.

If you're not ready to paint the kitchen this year, you may want to consider a festive backsplash instead. A bright set of tiles surrounding your cabinets will make a dull kitchen shine. Tons of designs are available to accent your favorite colors and creativity.

This year black is making a renewal, and we're not talking about appliances either. With so many homes featuring stainless steel stoves and refrigerators, black is an excellent color to showcase the silver/chrome look. If you're truly ready to commit to a modern look for the home, start with the kitchen. Use black as your primary color and let your appliances become the showpieces. Further, the black coloring will make artistic door pulls or handles show up well.

The basis of a rustic kitchen is the wooden cabinets and accents, but this year should see the rustic kitchen with paint splashes added to the mix. Take lower cabinet doors and paint them a light contrasting color and leave the upper ones stained. This combo updates the look and adds a new focal point in the area.

If you're ready for a new look in the kitchen or bathrooms, updating the cabinets could be the answer. 2021 promises to be a year filled with color, so take a look at the swatches available and try out something new in your home.
