Top Kitchen Renovations Being Made in 2021

Posted April 06, 2021

Throughout the pandemic, home remodeling projects have been at all-time highs. People have been spending an increasing amount of time at home due to stay-at-home orders, allowing them to tackle long-delayed projects. Others haven’t been able to travel, attend events or go out for dinner, giving them more money to invest into their homes.

Even the housing market is booming. Home sales are on the rise due to low interest rates and people realizing they need more space. This is also contributing to the home improvement boom. It’s a seller’s market, so buyers are putting in their offers without contingencies.

Remodeling activity is expected to continue through 2021, so you might be thinking about a home improvement project yourself. If it’s the kitchen you want to give attention to, let’s explore the latest trends to have on your radar.

Increased Storage

Storage is everything in a modern kitchen. You need a place to keep all those small appliances like air fryers, crock pots, pressure cookers and more. It’s also nice to have an oversized pantry that allows you to stock up on canned goods, snacks and paper products. No wonder why so many kitchen remodels include walk-in pantries and large cabinets these days.

Premium Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is making a comeback, particularly in kitchens and bathrooms where the floor gets wet. The key is to choose a luxury vinyl tile flooring that looks like real wood, marble or tile. No one will know the difference and you can enjoy a durable, scratch resistant flooring that’s easy to clean and disinfect.

Outdoor Connections

Your backyard shouldn’t be separate from your home. It should be an extension of it. And with people spending more time at home due to COVID, it’s no surprise why they’re bringing the inside outdoors. Explore how bifold doors and large windows can open up your kitchen and connect it with the outdoors. And if you crave more than just seeing your outdoor space, Woodhaven can help you create an outdoor kitchen experience featuring popular brands like Open Air Kitchens.

Oversized Islands

Large islands of at least 24 square feet offer plenty of benefits. They double up as seating areas and prep spaces. They’re fabulous for entertaining. They can also be used as a work space, which is great for remote learning. For an added wow factor, choose a contrasting color for your island that doesn’t match your cabinets.

Home Office Area

Last on our list is a home office or study area. With millions of Americans working and learning from home, it makes sense to create a study space in the kitchen. This way, parents can help their kids with homework while cooking dinner or an adult can catch up on emails while chatting with their spouse.
