Kitchen Design Trends for 2021
Have you had a kitchen remodeling project on your wish list for years?
Are you finally budgeting and planning for the remodel that will turn your small, out of style kitchen into the magazine-ready chef’s kitchen you’ve always wanted?
In the planning stage, consider these design trends for 2021 to make your kitchen modern and new, but timeless at the same time:
- Open floor plan – More homeowners are requesting walls be taken down in favor of a large, more open kitchen in 2021. Additionally, a large island to be used as a gathering space or homework spot is the perfect design element to add to your new, more spacious kitchen.
- Contemporary, organic/natural design style: Clean, modern design with natural elements like wood finishes and plants are popular with many homeowners this year. A clean, bright look with whites, grays and beiges are the most popular.
- Technology: More homeowners are interested in technology in kitchen and bath remodeling projects. In the kitchen, spots for charging devices as well as video communication will make your space more efficient.
- Light colored quartz countertops: Traditional marble will have to move over for quartz countertops. This style of counter paired with long subway tiles will be popular in 2021.
- Hardwood or engineered wood floors: Ceramic and porcelain tiles are no longer the most popular flooring choice for homeowners. Consider a hardwood or engineered wood floor for your kitchen, bringing in a more natural design element. Luxury vinyl that looks like hardwood is also a great choice for floors that take a beating from kids and pets.

We felt very comfortable when we initially visited Alpha. We felt the staff was open, honest, and wouldn't mislead us.

Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!
Karen & Dave, Ann Arbor, MI
We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!
Steve and Melissa, Ann Arbor, MI
The entire Alpha team was so nice to work with. Every person we dealt with knew their craft and the final product is an example of that.
Jonathan and Amanda, Ann Arbor, MI
We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.
Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
