Have you begun the process of designing your kitchen project or are thinking about a new kitchen in the new year? Our team at HMK have researched and put together a blog on the upcoming kitchen trends for 2023. We thought it would be best to show you in advance, making sure your new kitchen doesn’t fall behind the times but also that you’re making use of the latest innovations. It’s important to keep in mind that the right kitchen can add to the resale value of a home.
Some trends are staying and some are going making way for new ones. Let’s take a look at these below.
The Famous Open Shelf
The open shelf is staying and continuing as a kitchen trend in 2023. We see the kitchen is no longer a room for preparing food but is the heart of the home where more attention to the layout and décor is becoming much more important. Open shelving is a great way to display your stylish plates, and accessories, add a touch of greenery and a place where artwork can be found with pops of colour.
There’s also no need to purchase extra items to decorate with, as open shelving allows you to utilise and display the beautiful items you already have.
Multi-Purpose Kitchen Islands
The multi-purpose island has always been popular and we know that they are to stay. We are spending most of our time in the kitchens when at home and it isn’t just an area to cook in no more. The multi-purpose island serves as a place to prepare food, a space to work from home, an informal seating area and a place to entertain too – it can change the way you use the kitchen.
Get together your kitchen ideas and goals, this will determine how it should be designed. Do you require extra storage?
Something that is rising in popularity recently is porcelain worktops. Full of versatility and durability these worktops can be used in indoor and outdoor kitchens thanks to their non-porous and UV-resistant surface, making them suitable for most homes. Caesarstone’s porcelain surfaces are available in a wide range of colours and styles, so there will be one that will go with your modern or traditional décor.
Mirroring The Kitchen Into The Great Outdoors
What has become popular this year is an outdoor kitchen. Homeowners are now following the basic formats and sizes of their indoor kitchens in their outside spaces. The areas are normally zoned by patio doors, dining tables and even the famous kitchen island. We cannot wait to carry on this trend in 2023 and design many more outdoor kitchens!
Choose Different Worktop Surfaces
We predict a rise in the mix and match worktops in the new year due to how practicality will be at the heart of 2023. Work out which are the best kitchen worktops for your lifestyle and cooking style, for example, a quartz or granite. Solid wooden worktops can be applied to the island at the seating area.
Earthy Tones And Bringing Nature Indoors
We have started to see forms of foliage in homes already, but we think this will come into full swing in 2023. We are connecting with nature more and more and many homeowners have added green into their kitchens, by even just a plant. The benefits are huge, helping produce clean oxygen, giving the room a sense of peace and calm, and they also look great whilst adding a touch of vibrancy and colour to the space.
The colour forest green is a great choice and already proving popular for 2023. Many homeowners have been drawn to nature-inspired and earthy tones for the past couple of years.
The kitchen is the room we spend the most time in our homes, they’re the busy central hub of the home where everyone is welcome. When redesigning the kitchen considering the children, this could save you a lot of time, money and hassle in the future. Plan your kitchen’s layout to avoid them walking past the more dangerous areas.
Stretch The Kitchen Cabinets Into Open-Plan Spaces
If you are fortunate to have a large open-plan space to work with, bleed the kitchen cabinets into the dining and living areas. Coordinate the style, materials and colour of your cabinets by creating media units, drink cabinets, pantries and dressers.
