As a follow-up to our last post where we began to explore three new and trending kitchen cabinet styles for 2021, today we’re giving you an additional two ideas you can bring into your Kitchen Craft Retail Store Designer, and have them transform your dream into a reality.
From clever cabinetry transformed into functional islands to cool and diverse mixtures of colours and textures, these latest kitchen cabinet styles are not only all bang on trend – but very achievable too.
When you first meet with your designer, let them know that one or both of these trends are what you’re after, and they will show you how they can use the extensive selection of styles, colours and materials available to make it happen.
Two Islands are Better Than One
With the move towards larger kitchens, in open plan spaces in 2021 and beyond, the kitchen island has become an almost essential feature.
That being said, a pair of islands has become one of the latest trends in kitchen luxury, providing an expansive addition when space is no object.
That’s right. If you have the space, you can enjoy the benefits of 2 islands in your kitchen, giving you the ability to devote specific tasks or purposes to each one.
One of your islands could be use entirely for food preparation and even for cooking, while the other one is where close family and friends gather for daily meals, homework or exciting celebrations within your home.
Storage within one or both of your islands should be on your ‘must have’ list when working with your Kitchen Craft Designer as well, and with our extensive selection of interior solutions that pull-out, slide-out and roll-out, your days of searching for something on hand and knee will be far behind you.
Mixing It Up in the Kitchen

As you would expect, contrast is king when it comes to mixing materials; the trick is to make sure that every material used encourages all of the others to really sing.
Woodgrain thermofoils, such as this Soho Warm Walnut door, married with the highly-reflective Summit Glacial High Gloss prove to be a winning formula in this modern and vibrant family kitchen.
In addition, using a fusion of tactile materials to achieve a confident blending of styles is the way to go when mixing it up in your new Kitchen Craft kitchen.
For example, you could try combinations with marble, then a blend of wood and metallics which complement each other well, and even in different shades to bring out some warmth and contrast to the cold marble surface.
Plus, using contrasting materials to define different worktops within a kitchen will naturally create different ‘work zones’ within your room, making the space more practical, and also aesthetically creating a visually pleasing and harmonious kitchen to live in.
Incorporating one or more of these trending new kitchen cabinet styles into your design is a great way to improve both your space and your overall lifestyle.
We hope that you will rely on the experience and expertise of your Kitchen Craft designer to create a kitchen design you will love through 2021, and for many years beyond.
