The kitchen is the heart of the home, making it one of the most popular and lived-in rooms in any house. Because the world of kitchen design is constantly evolving and new styles seem to arrive at the start of every season, it’s important to stay on top of the latest trends. What design elements will define kitchens in 2023? Which materials, colors, and textures will be most in-demand as next year unfolds?
Whether you’re planning a full remodel or you simply want to update your kitchen cabinets or backsplash, knowing what trends to expect in 2023 will help you choose the right materials and styles for your project.
As you start planning your renovation projects for next year, here are 4 kitchen trends that are sure to become a must-have staple in 2023.
Natural Color Palettes
Sometimes, the easiest way to update a space is merely buying a new bucket of paint and reimagining the color scheme. For 2023, natural colors will be the most popular choice for kitchens, offering an organic and tranquil feel that reflects colors found in the great outdoors.
An ideal way to incorporate this type of color palette is to start with the cabinetry, which is very much the foundation of any kitchen. Choosing natural wood cabinetry will give off a warm tone that can be easily complemented by other natural finishes like granite or stone.
Some of the colors that work best with a natural palette include browns, grays, and whites – but you can include virtually any color that you can find outside as an accent color as well, such as sky blue, mossy green, or sunny yellow.
Pairing well with a natural color palette, sustainable materials are the next upcoming kitchen design trend for 2023.
It’s a well-known fact that many consumers are trying to be more environmentally-conscious in their purchases, leading many to want to choose items that are made from sustainable materials. Nowadays, everything from lighting fixtures to kitchen sponges can be made from sustainable materials like bamboo or hemp.
A good place to start in making your kitchen more eco-friendly is to revamp the flooring. Recycled tiles, bamboo, sustainably-sourced wood, or cork are all great options for a green kitchen renovation. You could also reface your cabinets, which is a project that has a much smaller carbon footprint than a full remodel. By updating the look of your cabinets and changing their style, you can not only use a more sustainable material but you’ll save money as well!
Matte & Concrete Textures
Matte and concrete textures are gearing up to take the world of kitchen design by storm in 2023. Fitting with the minimalist trend that’s been popularized by Scandinavian homes, both of these textures have a modern and sleek look.
While high-gloss cabinetry or oven hoods were once in-demand, it will be much more common to see clean and unadulterated matte finishes in the new year. If you’re looking to create a focal point in your kitchen, why not install a concrete countertop with a waterfall edge?
Concrete not only elicits a contemporary vibe, but it is also extremely durable and easy to maintain, as it’s less susceptible to stains, fingerprints, and scratches.
Mixing & Matching Materials
Last but not least, one of the most creative design trends arriving in 2023 is to mix and match the materials in your kitchen.
Using multiple materials that, upon first glance, might not seem like they would go together (but do!) can lead to an interesting and one-of-a-kind look. Combining materials like wood and metal, or using different types of stone or tiles throughout the space can add a level of dimension and dynamism that will give your kitchen true character.
If you don’t want to make such significant changes, simply mixing and matching a small element – like the hardware of your cabinetry – and choosing one finish (like black matte) for the knobs, and another finish (like chrome or gold) for the handles can be a fun, creative update.
