1. Let There Be LIGHT

All kitchen trends of 2023 are moving toward lighter and brighter spaces. So, whatever the design or final look, the room will be full of sunlight. That said, maximizing light has been a popular kitchen trend for a while. However, huge windows, light hues, and reflective matte materials will boost the glow even more in the coming years.

2. Think Kitchen Hood

Whether minimalist or traditional, a cooker hood makes a statement. These designs promise fun and creative ways to highlight the kitchen hood. But in the same way, kitchen remodel ideas for 2023 also lean towards minimal and integrated styles. These seem invisible, especially in forward-thinking traditional and online kitchen designs.

3. Family Focus

Comfy, cozy spaces with enough seating for family take precedence in residential designs. However, balancing comfort and style is vital to the family-friendly spaces of the future. Moreover, the four-pawed family members also get a spot. Improved kitchen islands come with neatly built-in pet-feeding stations. These are great as a fitting to a kitchen island or in a side cabinet.

4. Mini High-End

Short-term rentals, especially for quick getaways, are getting a luxe makeover. Creating a small bespoke interior increases the appeal of your vacation rental, without a doubt. But it also makes sticking to a kitchen remodel guide easy. A corner of cabinets topped off with statement finishes are all you need for a small-scale luxe kitchen. 

5. Ecocentric Design

Expect to see an increase in organic, eco-friendly green design. Plastic, unless recycled, is out, and natural, sustainably sourced materials are in. With a heightened awareness of the environmental impact of design, the green movement is sure to stay. To follow suit, opt for ethically sourced and eco-friendly materials. 

Enriching Kitchen Remodel Ideas 2023

The kitchen makes a decisive impact on a home’s buyability. In fact, potential buyers might not consider a house if they dislike the kitchen. Beyond increasing your property’s resale value, an updated interior will also be more enjoyable during its daily use.  

6. Diversify Materials

Two-tone wood kitchens are gaining popularity, but it’s more than contrast that makes it appealing. Kitchen remodel ideas for 2023 predict an increase in multi-material kitchens. This means wood, stone, and ceramics will sit alongside new and upcoming mediums. The result will certainly be visually and texturally pleasing. 

7. Space-Saving Cupboard Kitchen 

In 2023, kitchen trends are making the most of compact interiors. Highly populated metropolises are always in need of space-saving and innovative designs. As a result, stowaway kitchens have become popular in tight spaces. This means a room can have more than one function.

A wood shutter, like in the room above, can cover a bed during the day and slide over to cover the kitchen at night. These designs are so sleek and minimal that they fit into a standard built-in cupboard. So, if you want to renovate, consider one of the up-and-coming space-smart alternatives.

8. Vintage Revival

Make the most of what you have. Gut renovations are not necessarily key to your kitchen revamp in the next few years. Some styles, like cottage design, are making a comeback, which means you can simply modernize other details. With this in mind, lighting and cabinets always have a great potential to update an interior.  

9. Use an Ex-Show Kitchen

Buying a second-hand kitchen is becoming possible thanks to ex-showroom designs. You can purchase a complete kitchen that is at the forefront of what’s trending. In this way, you’ll keep costs low as well as reuse products. It’s a financially-wise and environmentally friendly option.

Grounding Kitchen Countertop Trends 2023

Non-toxic surfaces are imperative to a healthy kitchen environment. Countertops range from solid natural stone, marble, wood, and metals. Many of these options look great next to the top kitchen hardware trends of 2023.   

10. Full of Character

Kitchen design and countertop trends for 2023 allow more personalization than ever. If it’s not cabinets or wall color, surfaces can add character to the interior. Although we have new options every year, it looks like the design world is moving to neutral, calming designs with a pop of interest here and there. A deeply veined countertop could be just the thing your space needs in 2023.

11. Jewelry-Box Terrazzo

Terrazzo adds a unique look to interiors. They’re available in tile format, big-scale for floors, backsplashes, and countertops. It can take on exactly the look you want while reusing chips of other building materials, like glass and marble.

For this reason, it’s an eco-friendly choice and becoming more popular as our green awareness improves. Plus, its versatility will match any kitchen cabinet color trends of 2023 and beyond.

12. New Steel

Minimal yet welcoming stainless-steel kitchen cabinets make some of the most attractive trends of 2023. Moreover, it’s not only the counter but the entire kitchen that can get a full-metal treatment. Yet, they come with a twist. Brushed, mirrored, laser-printed, and matte finishes will give more variety and suit a range of interior styles.

Kitchen Paint Colors Splash into 2023

Even the smallest kitchen remodel can benefit from paint colors for 2023. Besides, a fresh coat of color can change the complete feel of the interior. It can turn a bland space into one that energizes and inspires.  

13. Matte Black Kitchen

Black is more than a deep contrasting base or accent shade. With a diversity of finishes and materials in the darkest hue, you can create a layered interior using only black. That said, black still stands out most set against a contrasting color. Plus, kitchen paint colors in 2023 will have dozens of attractive black tints. They could also make a blissful neutral picture when mixed with woody tones.

14. Olive Green Kitchen

A gentle olive hue will be a delightful alternative for interior lovers who prefer more neutral green in their homes. As one of the earthy kitchen paint colors of 2023, it leans to the warmer spectrum while pairing exceptionally well with white or black. That said, a cool combo with gray or a colorful mix with terracotta could make an unforgettable space. 

15. Warming Vanilla

Milky latte or spiced vanilla hues match whereto design is moving – natural and uncomplicated spaces. They’re sure to give an interior a refreshing yet warming glow. Plus, the neutral tone is great for making the most of kitchen backsplash trends in 2023.

Keep the design simple and splash out with a contrasting or bright color next to the stovetop. It won’t only pack a small but powerful punch, but also allow an easy change when the time comes for an update.

Refining Kitchen Decor Ideas 2023

The finishing touches matter. They certainly round off an interior’s hard edges. And kitchen décor ideas for 2023 are set to tastefully enhance the space without overpowering the overall look and feel.

16. Art Magnified

Artwork dominates kitchen decor ideas in 2023 by Decorilla designer, Drew F.

Few but bold decorative elements are the secret ingredients of future kitchens. Expect oversize artwork or a feature sculpture to steal the show in these interiors soon. Art isn’t just easy to incorporate with kitchen remodel ideas, it also works well with the top cabinet color trends for 2023.  

17. Something Quirky

Homes are set on regaining a sense of fun. Likewise, the kitchen gets a playful touch. This could come in the form of a set of spritely bonsai trees, sculptures that immortalize a humble toy dinosaur, or a large (but pretty) rock. Whatever puts a smile on your face can have a spot in the kitchen – even a whacky sink befitting the trend of 2023 will do!

18. Backsplash Talks

Designer kitchen backsplash trends make a comeback in 2023. The renewed focus includes more Art Deco style designs as well as heat and moisture-resistant wallpaper. The latter also opens a modish world to tenants or those who want to try something new before committing to a renovation.

If wallpaper is for you, be sure to seal it with an extra layer of protection. Non-toxic water-based matte varnish will do the job. 

19. A Bit of Bling

If not wood, then metallics should add warmth to an interior. Copper, bronze, and gold are among the favorites for décor finishes in the coming years. Shimmery vases, bowls, light shades, and hardware can spice up your design. The hue will certainly add a cozy-hug feeling, especially in colder spaces full of marble. Moreover, metallics go well with kitchen cabinet color trends for 2023.

Warming Kitchen Lighting Trends 2023

It’s no secret that light profoundly impacts the look and feel of an interior (and an exterior, as a matter of fact). It’s a crucial element that can make the difference between meh and wow! Moreover, proper lighting design makes the most of a kitchen and helps us use it to the fullest. Plus, they can make kitchen hardware trends shine even more in 2023.

20. Asymmetric Lighting Trends for 2023

Aspiring kitchen lighting trends pave the way to stunning spaces in 2023. Asymmetrical pendant designs will create intriguing features in the interiors of tomorrow. More experimentation with lighting design promises eye candy beyond what we know. Indeed, the future looks bright! 

21. New Silhouettes

There is so much to look forward to, particularly when it comes to kitchen lighting trends of 2023. Innovative ideas bring new, unexpected shapes and forms into being. What this means for interiors is we’ll be able to explore the scale and detail of lighting, from floor to ceiling lights and everything in between.

Minimalist line chandeliers and oversized pendants are sure to fit the sleek kitchen appliance trends of 2023 too! 

23. Traditional with a Twist

Beloved lampshades feature higher up than the typical floor or table lamp. Expect to see globe pendants with petticoat shades and horn or empire-style shades dress new chandeliers. These lighting trends fit in with the revival of cottage-style and English country interiors.    

24. Bubble Fever

With 2023 just a few short months away, designers and interior decorators are already gearing up for the trends the New Year will bring. And when it comes to kitchen design, we can expect big things. From enhanced technology to bold colors and more multifunctional spaces, 2023 will be all about increasing convenience, comfort, and personal style in the kitchen. Here are 6 kitchen design trends that will be big in 2023, according to experts.

Smart Technology

As technology continues to advance, the use of smart technology in the kitchen is expected to increase. This includes appliances that are connected to your wifi and can be controlled by your smartphone, voice-activated appliances, smart touchless faucets, and more. Smart kitchens aren’t just convenient, but they help to save on time and energy–with most smart appliances being more energy-efficient than their traditional counterparts.   

Butler’s Pantries

Sometimes referred to as a scullery, working pantry, or functional pantry, butler’s pantries are on the rise and expected to be popular in 2023. They can act as additional storage space for food, a dedicated food prep space, a hidden coffee bar, and so much more. David Kallie, president and CEO of Dimension Inc., a home design, build, and remodeling firm based out of Wisconsin, says that in particular, he expects to see more concealed or secret butler’s pantries in the near future. “Customizable appliances that perfectly mimic the cabinetry are a trend that has been gaining speed for years. New in concealed kitchen design is the secret butler’s pantry…hidden behind a matching cabinetry panel or a sliding ‘wall’ door."

Slab Backsplashes

Traditional white subway tile backsplashes and trendy zellige tile backsplashes are being replaced in favor of sleek, large-scale slab backsplashes. A slab backsplash is simply a backsplash made out of one large piece of continuous material. It can be matched to the countertops, or used as a statement piece in the kitchen with a bold contrasting color or design. Granite, quartz, and marble are popular choices for slab backsplashes although there are many options available. 

“Many clients are requesting slab backsplashes that go all the way to the ceiling around windows or around a range hood,” says Emily Ruff, owner and Principal Designer at Seattle-based design firm Cohesively Curated Interiors. “You can forgo the upper cabinets to allow the stone to shine!”

Slab backsplashes aren’t just eye-catching, they’re functional too, points out April Gandy, Principal Designer at Alluring Designs Chicago. “Carrying the countertop to the backsplash provides a seamless, clean look, [but] it is also so easy to keep clean since there are no grout lines,” she says.

Organic Elements

The past few years have been all about bringing nature into the home and this isn’t expected to stop in 2023. Organic elements will continue to make their way into kitchens in the form of natural stone countertops, organic and eco-friendly materials, wood cabinetry and storage, and metal accents, to name a few. Sierra Fallon, Lead Designer at Rumor Designs, sees natural stone countertops in particular as a trend to watch out for in 2023. “While quartz will remain a go-to for many, we will see a growth in the use of beautiful marbles and quartzites with more color on countertops, backsplashes, and hood surrounds,” she says.  

Cameron Johnson, CEO, and Founder of Nickson Living predicts this green movement will manifest in both large and small items in the kitchen. Things like “wood or glass bowls in lieu of plastic, stainless trash bins, and wood storage containers,” on top of bigger-ticket items like marble countertops or natural wood cabinets are all things to watch out for in 2023, Johnson says.

Large Islands Designed for Dining

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and many homeowners are opting for larger kitchen islands to accommodate dining and entertaining directly in the kitchen rather than a formal dining room. Hilary Matt of Hilary Matt Interiors says this is a function of homeowners “redefining the spaces in our homes.” She adds, “Traditional kitchens are evolving into other parts of the home. In the coming year, I predict larger—and even double—kitchen islands will be integrated to accommodate for larger entertaining and gathering spaces in the kitchen.”

Interior Impressions

Warm Colors Are In

While white will continue to be a popular choice for kitchens in 2023, we can expect to see kitchens get a bit more colorful in the new year. In particular, homeowners are embracing warmer tones and bold pops of color rather than monochromatic, Scandinavian-style minimalism or white and gray farmhouse-style kitchens. Of the push towards using more color in the kitchen, Fallon says that she sees lots of organic and saturated colors being big in 2023 in all areas of the kitchen. Expect to see all-white cabinets switched out in favor of warm, natural wood tones in both dark and light hues.

When white and gray are used, we can expect to see those colors warmed up significantly compared to previous years. Basic gray and stark white are out and creamy off-whites and warm grays are in says Stacy Garcia, CEO and Chief Inspiration Offer at Stacy Garcia Inc.

Single space

Design: Natalia Vasilyeva

You won’t surprise anyone with a combined kitchen-living room - a fashion trend has long passed into the category of classics. The concept of a single space within which you can cook, communicate with family or friends, work and relax is firmly established both in the minds of people and in the layouts of new apartments. More and more euro-twos and euro-threes are appearing - this is housing designed according to European canons, where the bedrooms are made small and isolated, and up to 50% of the area is allocated for a spacious kitchen-living room, where all life is in full swing.

What is important to consider when decorating such a space?
