2021 Kitchen Trends

Our guide to the latest kitchen design trends and ideas for 2021 to help inspire your design!

Green with envy

Emerald, sage, olive, and every shade in between. Green is taking centre stage this year, creating a stunning finish. We love it when combined with natural wood and industrial touches, such as an exposed brick wall or black handles.

Bold as brass

Brass is back in a big way and we can’t get enough of it. Used to complement rich, indigo blue units or as a contrast to high gloss white, brass creates a stunning finish.

Handleles Shaker Doors

Combining the traditional Shaker style with the modern handleless style, these doors are expected to be a big hit this year. The Harborne door shown below has a solid Ash frame and Ash veneer frame. We love it in the natural colour shown below, but think a bold, bright colour would look incredible.

Dark Worksurfaces

Adding an air of sophistocation and luxury, dark worksurfaces are a really popular choice right now. Partnered with high gloss or textured woods, there is something both homely and sophisticated about a dark surface. We love the splashback made from the same quartz as the worktop in the image below, lit with LED under cabinet lights.

Clever use of space

Whether narrow, square or broken plan, where space is at a premium, compact kitchens come to the rescue. More and more kitchen design looks to benefit from minimal clutter and maximum efficiency. At B8, we build all of our cabinets to size, which means we aren’t limited by the tiniest of spaces or the strangest request.
Making best use of your space is a challenge we’re always willing to take on. Let us know how we can transform your space!
