Kitchen trends can be controversial: you probably don’t want your kitchen to be trendy, because it’s one of the largest investments in your home. Even if a trend is beautiful, you wouldn’t want to risk looking dated within two years.
But if you happen to be renovating in 2023, here are a few trends that will still look good over time.
Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Options
In 2023, we can expect to see a continued focus on sustainable and eco-friendly design in kitchen trends. This includes the use of reclaimed and recycled materials, as well as energy-efficient appliances.
In addition, home automation systems are becoming increasingly popular in kitchen design, allowing homeowners to control all of their appliances, lighting, and HVAC systems from a single, central hub. This makes it easy to create custom scenes and schedules and can help to save energy and reduce costs.
Energy-efficient appliances and smart technology not only help to reduce environmental impact and save on energy costs, but also offer a more convenient and streamlined way to control and monitor the appliances in your home.
Focus on Function
The popularity of minimalistic, Scandinavian-inspired design will also continue to be strong in 2023. This style is characterized by clean lines, simple shapes, and a focus on functionality. The use of white, gray, and wood tones will be prominent, as well as the incorporation of natural light and open spaces.
As more people return to busy lives of work and events, our homes need to be functional, beautiful, restful places. Each piece needs to serve a purpose instead of taking up physical and mental space in our lives.
Natural & Reclaimed Materials
Another trend that is gaining popularity is the use of multi-functional kitchen islands. These islands often have built-in sinks, cooktops, and storage, making them a convenient and space-saving option for small kitchens. Additionally, we will see more kitchen designs integrating smart technology, such as voice-activated appliances, and home automation systems.
The use of natural elements, such as wood and stone, will also be a popular choice in kitchen design. In 2023, we can also expect to see more people opting for custom cabinetry, as well as the use of unique and unexpected materials. This includes the use of sustainable materials, such as bamboo and cork, as well as the use of more unconventional materials, such as concrete and steel.
Aligning with the increasing desire for materials that are both durable and beautiful, natural stone will continue to be a top choice for kitchens. Soapstone, slate, and marble will stand the test of time when you renovate your kitchen
Bring the Outdoors In
Another trend that will be on the rise in 2023 is the integration of indoor-outdoor living spaces. This includes large windows, sliding glass doors, and outdoor kitchens, which allow homeowners to seamlessly transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. Outdoor dining and entertaining is here to stay, and many homeowners desire to bring the beauty of nature indoors.
