The kitchen is often regarded as the heart of the home, so when you’re looking to add some serious value to your home, it’s a great place to start.

By making your space both functional and aesthetically pleasing, you’re able to increase your quality of living and lure potential buyers when it comes time to sell. So let’s explore 2021’s top trending kitchen remodeling ideas.

  1. Update Your Counters
    Your kitchen countertops are one of the first things the eye notices when walking into the room, so updated countertops are essential when doing a remodel. Consider your lifestyle when choosing - Busy households need something durable; gourmet cooks prefer hard-working materials and entertainers tend to desire a material fused with high style and ease of care.

  2. Craft a Backsplash
    A great backsplash serves a practical purpose as well as an aesthetic one. It protects the wall from splatters, but is also a perfect place to craft a beautiful focal point in the kitchen. Whether you go with an intricate design, a captivating material, or a modern twist on simple subway, your backslash will wow your walls!

  3. Swap Out the Hardware
    Not ready for a whole kitchen remodel? Swapping out outdated hardware in favor of the new and shiny is a quick and inexpensive way to make your home look more modern and trendy. This small, yet impactful update can make a surprisingly big difference to your room’s design.

  4. Add Open Shelving
    While it’s not a look for everyone, open shelving is a great option if you’re looking to inject some fresh, modern vibes into your space. It’s a perfect way to show off a favorite collection or access your often-used items. To avoid a hot mess, be sure to keep your shelves neat and tidy.

  5. Invest in New Appliances
    Replacing appliances is essential in ensuring that your home looks modern and not outdated. If doing them all, opt for energy efficient units - they’ll save you money in the long run. Can’t replace them all? Be sure to choose coordinating appliances so the room design flows together.

  6. Install “Age in Place” Features

    By adding age in place features to your kitchen, you enhance its usability and increase independence and comfort. Options range from rounded countertop edges and shallow sinks to pull-out pantries and extra deep drawers. You won’t have to get on your hands and knees to see what’s in the cupboard.

  7. Go For Luxury Upgrades
    If you’re looking to go big, there are several additions that immediately exude luxury. Try investing in radiant floor heating, a butler’s pantry, a built-in warming drawer for plates, a wine cellar or a wet bar. These extras will immediately elevate your space and make it inviting and fresh!
