Kitchen trends come and go, but some stand the test of time and become timeless classics. As we look towards 2023, there are several kitchen trends set to dominate the design world. Here's our top ten kitchen trends incorporate into your new kitchen in 2023.
With a growing focus on the environment and sustainability, more and more homeowners are opting for eco-frendly materials in their kitchens. Think bamboo, cork, and recycled materials for kitchen cabinetry and countertops. These materials might sound strange but they can be very durable and stylish. Kitchen appliances that use recycled materials are another great option to reduce the environmental impact of your kitchen and overall home.
Open concept layouts, where the kitchen is integrated with the living and dining areas, are sure to continue to be popular in kitchen design. This trend provides a space that is more cohesive and functional, as well as creating a sense of openness and connection to the rest of the home. They're also very sociable - allowing the cook to be involved in conversation even whilst prepping or making food. Open concept designs aren't going anywhere and are sure to continue to be a big kitchen trend for 2023.
Smart appliances are connected to the internet and can be controlled with a smartphone or voice assistant. Allowing for more efficient and convenient cooking, as well as providing useful features such as recipe suggestions and temperature control, these appliances make cooking easier and quicker. We're sure to see more of them in 2023 and beyond.
Kitchen islands are already a staple in many modern kitchens but 2023 will see them become more and more multifunctional than ever. As well as providing extra counter, prep and storage space, many kitchen islands now feature built-in appliances such as hobs, sinks or even dishwashers. Another popular addition is a seating area - making the kitchen more sociable and meaning the cook can always be part of the conversation.
Whilst neutral colour schemes have always been popular in the kitchen, black and white is a colour combination that is particularly on trend for kitchens in 2023. This bold and classic colour combination adds a touch of sophistication and drama to any kitchen. You can also be sure that it will never go out of style and you'll look a black and white kitchen for years to come.
Natural stone surfaces like granite and marble are timeless choices for kitchen countertops. In 2023, we're likely to see a shift towards more unique and unusual stone options, such as soapstone and quartzite. These materials are great for offering a more natural and rustic look, and can add character and warmth to a kitchen.
Mixing and matching different materials is a kitchen trend that was big in 2022 and is set to continue in 2023. Mixing materials can include combining different types of wood for cabinetry, pairing marble countertops with stainless steel appliances or even mixing metals. Mixing materials adds depth and interest to a kitchen, and allows for a more personalised and unique design.
Backsplashes are a great way to add your own personality and style to a kitchen. In 2023, we're likely to see more homeowners opting for statement backsplashes, from bold patterns to colourful tiles or even city landscapes!
Wave goodbye to bulky white fridges, microwaves and ovens. As appliances become more advanced, sleek and integrated, it's becoming more and more common to see hidden appliances in kitchen design. Appliances that are built into cabinetry or have cabinet fronts that match the surrounding cabinets are a great way to keep the design minimalist and uninterrupted. Hidden appliances definitely create a more streamlined and cohesive look in the kitchen and are sure to be popular in 2023.
Lighting is an important aspect of kitchen design, and in 2023 there's likely to be more emphasis on integrated lighting solutions. Under-cabinet lighting, or lighting that is integrated into cabinetry or countertops adds a touch of sophistication and functionality to a kitchen. It can also help to create ambiance and highlight design features of your kitchen design. Clever lighting is essential for adding luxury and sophistication to the space.
Kitchen trends for 2023 are focused on sustainability and functionality, as well as style. Whether you opt for natural stone surfaces, mixed materials, or hidden appliances, there are plenty of options to choose from to create the perfect kitchen for your home in 2023 and beyond.
