Kitchen and bath color trends for 2021 reflect a need for self expression. As 2020 kept us home and a bit stifled, 2021 reflects breaking out of old patterns and our desire for more joy – bold spaces that emote uplifting, and cheerful times that signal a new chapter is upon us. Below we explore color through the lens of kitchen and bath design elements .
2021 Paint Colors
Benjamin Moore’s 2021 Color of the Year – A blend of blue-green and gray, Aegean Teal 2136-40 is an intriguing midtone that creates natural harmony.
Pair it with Chestertown Buff, An earthy, gently muted maize that works beautifully in both contemporary and classic settings for a cheery eat-in kitchen dining area.
If that seems too scary you can still add color with a more muted tone, like Sherwin-Williams Oyster Bay, a very popular soft green-blue color with gray-tones.
Otherwise known as the fifth wall, the ceiling is an unexpected place to add a splash of color.
Islands of Color
You’re cabinetry and island no longer need to be matchy-matchy. In fact, it’s part of a larger trend for mixing and matching everything from paint to cabinetry and hardware.
A colorful island is also a fantastic counterpoint to contemporize and add interest to a rustic kitchen.
As an alternative to using wall paint color, brightly colored cabinets are a great way to make a bold statement.
Modern trendy black cabinets are sleek and sophisticated, grounding a space and making a chic statement.
