Kitchen Design Trends for 2023
The goal of interior design is to create spaces that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing, and that reflect the needs, preferences, and personalities of the people who will use the space.
When working with a designer to create a new kitchen, keep in mind that this design will have to last through the next 10-15 upcoming trends. It’s always best to look for an up-to-date look that reflects your personality and family life but it’s also timeless. With that being said, the 2023 trends are focused on functionality and elements that can last a lifetime.
Cabinets that Make a Statement
From creative door designs to more exciting colors, cabinets will make a huge statement this year. Color will rule this trend with warmer tones and bold colors rather than monochromatic, white, or gray farmhouse-style kitchens. If you still love the look of a white kitchen, select a warmer tone, like ivory, and mix it with a natural finish on the kitchen island cabinets to create a more inviting space.
Kitchen Island is a Gathering space
Large kitchen islands with ample seating will be in style, to ensure the space is completely inclusive when cooking or entertaining. Also, the traditional island will often be swapped for a multifunctional dining table to bring a natural element to the space. This also follows another interior design trend for 2023 where warm woods and reclaimed furniture will make a huge comeback.
Clever, hidden storage, butler’s pantries and well-organized and defined spaces are going to rule the 2023 kitchen trends. With organizational videos taking over social media, everyone is dreaming about a well-organized walk-in pantry.
Traditional white subway tile backsplashes are going to give a way to large-scale natural stone slab backsplashes. A slab backsplash is made of one large piece of continuous material which can match or compliment the countertop surface. Granite, quartz, and marble are still the most common materials used for backsplashes. This style will be timeless as it creates a more organic surface that’s durable and maintenance free.
