What’s Trending for Luxury Kitchens in 2021-22?

Trending designs for luxury kitchens this year include a lot of out-of-the-box ideas for Indian kitchen setups in terms of materials, finishes, styles and overall functionality. Modern interior design ideas are leaning towards elegant kitchen designs that introduce glass doors, seamless finishes, kitchen islands and more into an Indian luxury kitchen setup. 

Let’s dive into some details!

#1: Dark Colours Say Elegant Kitchen Designs

Let natural light inside your luxury kitchen to highlight the colours

Using colour to your advantage is trending in 2021, but in a different way than you might think. Introducing darker colours to create a backsplash of tones for your luxury kitchen can be just the modernised idea you have been looking for. Creating the perfect accent with the simplest of tools is one luxury kitchen design idea you can’t go wrong with. Additionally, if you can open up your kitchen space to ample natural light, nothing tops that. Look at the ground floor luxury kitchen with a direct view of a garden. The natural light brightens up the deep dark tones of the kitchen bringing it all together. 

#2: Seamless Finishes for a Plush Look

Get your kitchen the seamless finish with marble and wood

Create some drama with the finishes in your kitchen. Luxury kitchens are often known to make a statement with their striking features and contemporary designs. A custom standard marble finish coordinating beautifully with the wooden finish of the cabinets in the kitchen creates a lovely combination. This is especially true with regard to the contrast it creates with your appliances. This luxury kitchen elegantly sports a marble-stained wall and a kitchen island converted into a personal compact dining area while the wooden finish creates a cohesive style of its own.

#3: Cozy Vibes With a Kitchen Table

Create a cosy vibe by combining two styles of luxury kitchen design 

A cosy vibe is not only reserved for a personal space like the bedroom. Your luxury kitchen can have that too. Pair up the wooden finishes of the flooring and the cabinets with a pastel-coloured hood to create a two-dimensional accentuation of your kitchen. The top view of the window adds to the beautiful vibe of a modern Indian luxurious household and the statement lights hanging down above the table simply create a striking impact. 

#4: An In-house Wine Cabinet

Nothing speaks luxury like good wine

One out-of-the-box luxury kitchen design idea is to have a wine cabinet in your kitchen. Custom spaced and styled with a wooden finish that directly contrasts with the whitewashed stylish contemporary interiors of this luxury kitchen, a wine cabinet is a perfect way to to be plush! If you’re going to go with the clutter-free minimalist design for your kitchen like shown in the picture, a wine cabinet is just what you need to add a touch of your own and step out of the typical idea. 

#5: Bar-like Design with Open Storage and Counter Seating

Throw in some lights over the open storage space for style 

You can also choose to opt for open storage space and create yourself a bar-like setting in your luxury kitchen. The best part about open storage space is that it does not necessarily create visual clutter. In fact, if you’re organised enough, the open storage space gives your kitchen quite the visual appeal. A counter with dark finishes and bar stools can give you the aesthetic you’re most comfortable in, and isn’t that what designing every space actually means?
