Kitchen Trends for 2023

Bold Colour Palettes

Say goodbye to bland neutral kitchens, and hello to bold, colourful kitchens. Whether it’s a statement wall in a bright hue or a mix of contrasting colours in your cabinetry, don’t be afraid to incorporate some colour into your kitchen design. We expect to see a trend toward a more brave mix of different styles and strong colours.

Mixed Metals

Mixing metal finishes is a trend that’s here to stay. From brushed nickel to brass, incorporating different metal finishes in your kitchen creates a layered and interesting look. The concept involves incorporating different metal finishes, such as stainless steel, brass, copper, and bronze, into a single kitchen design. This trend is a way to add interest, texture, and a touch of luxury to your kitchen.

Smart Technology

Smart technology has been making its way into kitchens, and this trend is set to continue in 2023. From refrigerators that keep track of your groceries to hobs with built-in extractor fans, smart technology can make cooking and meal planning a breeze.

Textured Surfaces

Textured surfaces like concrete, stone, and wood bring warmth and interest to kitchens. This trend is not only beautiful but also practical, as textured surfaces are more durable and easier to clean.

Despite the long-standing tradition of stone in kitchen spaces, more and more kitchens are featuring natural stone like quartz as a primary feature. Kitchens are increasingly featuring dramatic stones and marble waterfall islands that highlight the material's natural beauty, helping to add natural textures to the space.

Two-Toned Cabinetry

Two-toned cabinetry is a popular trend for 2023. This trend allows you to mix and match different colours or finishes for a unique and personalized look. The two-toned trend is a great way to add depth and interest to your kitchen cabinets without going overboard with colour. It's also a way to create a bold statement, especially if you choose to mix two contrasting colours.

Open Shelving

Open shelving continues to be a popular trend in kitchen design. Not only does it provide a stylish way to store and display your dishes and decor but gives you the freedom to personalise your space as well as create a focal point in your kitchen.

Natural Materials

Natural materials like wood, stone, and concrete bring a sense of warmth and organic beauty to kitchens. These materials are also durable, making them a practical choice for high-use areas like the kitchen.

You can keep it current by mixing wood with painted cabinets and embracing natural wood grain instead of glossy varnish and heavy stains. Natural materials and earthy tones add a unique look to your kitchen creating a kitchen aesthetic that is warm and welcoming.

Integrated Appliances and power outlets

Integrated appliances like refrigerators and dishwashers that blend seamlessly into cabinetry are becoming increasingly popular. This trend not only enhances the overall look of your kitchen but also helps to minimize clutter and free up valuable counter space.

An EVOline power socket placed under the cabinets rather than in the backsplash reduces cord clutter behind small appliances and gives them a cleaner appearance.

Bold splashbacks

Splashbacks are a great way to add colour, texture, and pattern to your kitchen. Bold and graphic splashbacks in bright hues or eye-catching patterns are a trend to watch for 2023.

The trend toward marble slab splashbacks is gaining popularity - which adds drama and depth to the kitchen. In addition to being easier to clean than tile, marble splashbacks and countertops set a stylish tone for the entire room

Multifunctional Islands

Kitchen islands are more than just a place to chop vegetables. Multifunctional islands that include storage, seating, and additional counter space are a popular trend for 2023. A kitchen island can serve many purposes, from providing additional counter space to serving as a dining table or a place to store kitchen appliances.

The kitchen is an essential part of your home and it’s important to keep up with the latest trends to ensure it’s both functional and stylish.

The top 10 kitchen trends for 2023 offer a range of ideas and styles to inspire you, from bold colour palettes to smart technology.

Whether you're renovating a space to create a new kitchen, or you are just updating a few key elements, these trends will help you create a space that reflects your personal style and meets your needs offering creative ways to style your kitchen.
