In 2021, kitchen interior design trends from 2020 will continue to develop. Kitchens will become more technological and versatile. There is an increase in home and apartment owners’ interest in the island type of workspace arrangement and combining the kitchen and living room. Designers propose projects that provide maximum integration of kitchens’ technical elements, work, and protection zones into kitchen cabinets. And minimalism remains the primary stylistic trend in kitchen interiors. This is due to the optimal combination of functionality, practicality, and ease of use.
Particular attention is paid to kitchen lighting. Designers offer several trends that are relevant in 2021. Let’s discover them!
Luminaires made of unexpected materials
The use of unexpected materials for the manufacture of lamps allows the creation of original light fixtures that will become a highlight of the kitchen or even a starting point for creating an interior design.
Metal and glass are still relevant in 2021. An interesting option is transparent ball-shaped shades for ceiling lamps. Designers offer attractive models of the ceiling and wall lamps made of polymers, acrylics, ceramics, and fashionable textile fringes. Wood, especially untreated or “semi-antique”, will become an actual material for lamps. This option fits nicely into the country, eco, and loft styles.
The variety of light fixtures in design and shape in 2021 allows you to choose a solution in any kitchen style. It is permitted to use lamps in the same style, made of different materials, or products of different types of the same color and decor. Such a solution will allow you to zone the kitchen room and give the interior a new look.
Lamps of unusual shapes and colors

Designers recommend using LED lights to highlight specific areas of kitchen furniture. For example, a wine cabinet or built-in appliances. With LED lamps’ help, you can focus on an unusual facade decor or decorative element using shadows.
One of the trends in 2021 will be the kitchen’s smart zoning, which implies the conditional division of the premises into functional segments. You can easily accomplish this task with the help of lamps.
The ideal tool for zoning the kitchen space in such a way is track lighting. In addition to track lighting, designers offer wall brackets for installing luminaires with convenient swivel mechanisms that direct the light flux to the right place. Designers recommend the use of theater spotlights. You can install them above kitchen storage systems.
Energy efficiency is one of the main trends of our time. This trend will also affect kitchen lighting in 2021. Designers recommend dividing different lighting (point, LED, and directional) into groups using dimmers. This option is most favorable for vision. It will save money on electricity bills. Ceiling and wall lamps with height adjustment will become a practical option.
