It’s that time of year again to look at upcoming kitchen trends. At Coulon Stone we’ve found more of you than ever have used this year of on-and-off lockdowns to make changes and upgrades to your home, and kitchen’s in particular have been a popular space for renovations. Here are three of our favourite kitchen design trends for 2021.  

Matte Natural Surfaces
In 2021 we will see more than ever people surround themselves by nature including filling their homes with earthy materials, plants and natural surfaces. Natural stones like granite and slate will continue to be used in our kitchens, however opt for more of a matte finish rather than the traditional shiny surface, mimicking a straight from the earth feel. This reflects other home décor trends for example using jute, linens, organic cotton, hemp and bamboo, along with colours like terracotta, mustard and dark greens. 

Open Shelving for a Curated Kitchen
With a rise in the use of social media and sites like Pinterest being used as a home design tool, along with high street brands like H&M and Zara making beautiful home décor pieces more accessible, more of us have developed an interest in design and home styling. This is reflected in our growing use of open shelving and glass cabinetry making our kitchens beautifully curated design spaces, as well as practical. Why not add open shelves to your kitchen made from the same stone you’ve used as your kitchen worktop and splashback. This will create a completed look to your space as well as create opportunity to display beautiful pieces of crockery and glassware.

Dramatic Marbles
Marble has been a popular interior choice for many years. However 2021 will see an increase in more unusual and dramatic marbles being used in our kitchens, the busier the stone the better. Some of our favourite more dramatic and unusual marbles include Verde Guatemala, an earthy dark green marble with grey and white veins, and Calcutta, a glassy white marble with scorings of deep, dark grey.   

Please feel free to visit our showroom for more inspiration and advice, we’re adhering to all social distancing guidelines.
