These 10 kitchen design ideas will dominate in 2023.
The kitchen has always been the heart of our homes, but this highly-trafficked space gained increasing importance during the coronavirus pandemic when millions found themselves housebound and learning to adapt to their smaller worlds.
No longer relegated to just cooking and eating, kitchen duties have expanded, transforming into office, social gathering, crafting, and study spaces. It’s also no accident that over the last few years we’ve seen homeowner interest in kitchen renovations and additions explode.
If a kitchen remodel is on your wishlist, or you’re just looking to spruce up your space—these 10 kitchen design ideas will help you create the kitchen that you’ll love to cook, and do everything else in, for years to come.
So, what’s in store for kitchens in 2023?
In no particular order
1. Black Appliances & Details
Black matte or gloss appliances, fixtures, and hardware are perennially ‘in’ and here to stay.
2. Mixed Metals
Bring a touch of modernity to your kitchen by mixing metals. Black and rose gold, nickel and brass, chrome and bronze—mixing metals remains a strong design trend that we’re more than OK with.
3. Downdraft Ventilation
Downdraft ventilation is discreet, sophisticated, and often, very effective in clearing smoke and odors in the kitchen. If you want a streamlined look and ventilation in a space where traditional ventilation may not be possible—here’s your solution.
4. Bold Countertops and Backsplashes
Marble, quartz, concrete, granite or terrazzo…the options are endless, and the choice is yours.
5. Built-in Coffee Machines
The days of having ugly appliances sitting on countertops are gone. Or could be. Indulge in a barista-like coffee every day with a built-in coffee maker that seamlessly blends in with your environment.
6. Design Sinks
Banish the basic basin—the statement sink is having a moment and we’re here for it. If you’re looking for a way to upgrade your current space but want to avoid a major renovation—this could be the way to go.
7. Pop of Color
The timeless look of an all-white kitchen isn’t going to be losing popularity anytime soon. However, if you want to imbue your kitchen with a bit of personality, introducing a splash of color might be worth exploring.
8. Non-Stacked Appliances
Placing your appliances horizontally, as opposed to stacked, is a popular, modern trend and can make it easier to access control panels, doors and interiors.
9. Workstation Sinks
Whether you’re preparing, cooking, serving, entertaining, or cleaning—sleek, innovative sink workstations can make your life easier. Your guest’s ooh’s and ahh’s won’t hurt either.
10. All-In-One Faucets
Hydrate your family while adding intelligence and innovation to your kitchen with a faucet that delivers filtered, chilled, boiled and sparkling water.
