2021 Kitchen & Bathroom Color Trends

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.

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.
