Instagram is one of the best platforms for spotting emerging home decor trends—and getting inspiration for how to bring those trends to life in your own home.
And that includes in your kitchen.
So, when it comes to kitchen decor, what’s currently trending on Instagram? A recent article from realtor.com outlined some of the platforms’s most popular kitchen decor trends for 2021, including:
- Eye-catching backsplashes. There’s nothing wrong with a plain wall or subtle tile—but in 2021, a bold, eye-catching backsplash is much more on-trend. Go for a bold tile that adds texture, pattern, or color to your kitchen (or all three!).
- Double islands. A kitchen island is great. But, if you’re following this year’s kitchen design trends, two kitchen islands are even better. And while adding a second island is trendy from a design perspective, it also serves a functional purpose, providing additional counter and storage space.
- Open pantry shelves. Open shelving has long been a trend in kitchen design. But a current trend on Instagram? Using that shelving as a pantry. If you have open shelves in your kitchen, try using one or more shelves as a pantry to display spices, flours, and other cooking essentials.
So, what does this mean for you? If you’re planning on selling your home, understanding the biggest decor trends can help you stage your home (and kitchen!) in a way that appeals to buyers—which can help your home sell faster and for a higher price.
