When we talk about the kitchen, some trends arFFe timeless. We always want a clean, functional, and practical kitchen.
However, new trends in the choice of materials, colours, and ideas on how to further improve the functionality of the kitchen emerge every year.
TRENDS 2021: MATERIALS IN THE KITCHEN - KITCHEN SINK AND KITCHEN TAP
1. Stainless steel - a classic that never goes out of style
Shiny, elegant, classic - stainless steel is still a winning combination, regardless of your kitchen choice.
2. Natural attraction of Granital
Granital is a composite kitchen sink made of a technical material which is obtained by mixing more than 90% of granite powder and special materials. The result is an extremely solid, durable kitchen sink that is easy to maintain.
Granital kitchen sinks are at the very top of this year's trends - mainly because of the colour: natural, earthly tones that will be in the foreground in 2021.
A hit in interior design in 2021 is also a dark walnut colour which can be perfectly combined with brown and sandy tones of the kitchen sinks and kitchen taps.
3. Monarch - for a special look
The trend in 2021 dictates a few more kitchen colours: black, navy blue, and dark green.
The ideal pair to these colours is the Monarch line which is the most prestigious one from Alveus.
Nowadays, the dark kitchen with a gold kitchen sink, kitchen tap, and handles on a wooden part is on the rise. Do you dare to be different?
TRENDS 2021: MATERIALS IN THE KITCHEN - KITCHEN COUNTERTOP
A new hit in the world is a technical material called Quarzite, which is durable, affordable, beautiful, and quite environmentally friendly.
5. Eternal wood
Many European kitchens stay true to the wooden kitchen countertop.
Wood is a sustainable material, it is beautiful, durable, and easy to clean.
In 2021 the trend moves to the selection of dark wood - the colour of walnut is back and it moves from the dark kitchen surfaces to the kitchen cabinets too.

TRENDS 2021: FUNCTIONAL SOLUTIONS IN THE KITCHEN
9. Completely built-in kitchen sink
Currently, the most desirable installation methods are the following:
flush mount kitchen sink (F) where the kitchen sink is installed in the countertop so that the upper edge of the sink is in the same plane as the kitchen countertop;
undermount kitchen sink (U) where the kitchen sink is installed below the kitchen countertop and the edge of the sink is covered with the surface of the countertop made of natural stone or composite materials.
10. Hide what can be hidden
If you want to have a modern kitchen and especially if you want to create the look of an always clean and tidy kitchen, you shall just put all the things in the kitchen cabinets.
The only thing that may disturb the tidiness in your kitchen is an ugly plastic basket somewhere on the floor.
Alveus offers excellent systems for separate waste collection - pull-out bins that are hidden in the kitchen cabinet. Why would you not keep your trash tidy and hidden from the view of your guests?
11. Small secrets - great solutions
Alveus has specialists in its development team who carefully study the habits of customers in the kitchen.
Thus, with aesthetic small baskets for sponge and cloths and with small dispenser for soap or detergent, which is mounted directly under the countertop so that only the head of dispenser can be seen, the space for storing everyday items for cleaning in the wet part of the kitchen is arranged incomparably.
