Kitchen Renovation Ideas for 2021

Promotional post

I’ve spent more time than ever in my kitchen in the last year. And it’s given me plenty of time to think of my ideal kitchen renovation ideas.

Being at home so much I’ve gained a new appreciation for details I may have neglected before. While I love my kitchen, it’s definitely starting to look a little tired.

In the future it would be great to update it.

Revonating my kitchen would be ideal.

Making sure all windows are double glazed, bringing even more light into the room, and adding an extension would modernise my home for 2021.

It’s possible to be on trend yet still have a timeless look that grows and develops with your family.

Let’s look at a few ways I would add some new life to my kitchen.

Kitchen Renovation Ideas for 2021


I’ve wanted an extension on the kitchen ever since we moved in.

It creates so much extra space and could use up some garden I’ve never been sure what to do with.

Adding an extension without a dividing wall creates an airy open plan space that is great for family and friends. We’ve all realised the importance of socialising over the past year, and I want my home to be welcoming and friendly.

Having an open plan kitchen/diner allows us to feel connected and really make the most of our often limited space. We can cook, eat, socialise, and simply relax all within one room without feeling cramped together.


It may be a cliché, but there’s a reason the kitchen is described as the heart of the home. It should be inviting, spacious, and appealing.

Even if your kitchen is on the smaller side, light is the perfect way to create this atmosphere, and I’m not just talking about windows.

Three Counties creates a beautiful aluminium lantern roof that can be installed onto any flat roof, transforming the kitchen into a bright space ideal for socialising.

Not only will a lantern roof create new light, but the sophisticated design will elevate your home to a refined and mature level.

We know that light improves wellbeing, happiness, and overall health.

Skylights are so often forgotten when renovating the kitchen, but it makes such a difference to the feeling of the space.


I love entertaining, and I want my space to reflect this.

Especially during the summer months, I want guests to feel comfortable and at ease in and out of the garden, so it’s imperative these two spaces don’t feel disconnected.

Patio doors are the perfect remedy that I’ve been dreaming of installing for years.

There are so many options suited to your needs and budget that they can work in any home, immediately giving a modern and stylish look.

They create a seamless transition between the inside and outside, inviting even more light into the kitchen.

This means I can keep the kitchen for cooking.

I don’t have to be too worried about mess when I know there’s another beautiful space outside.

Opening the patio doors will also bring the warm summer air into the kitchen and stop it feeling stuffy.

These renovations are just ideas at the moment; a little dream that in time we hope to bring to fruition.

Are you planning any kitchen updates for the future? Let me know if you have any ideas or if you’re inspired by mine.
